Read about the gal in the black tank top. They are true. No personality, cheese was not melted, outdoor eating was filthy with 5 roosters within 3 feet of my wife and I hovering over us to grab any scrap that happened to fall.

I was really looking forward to checking out Duane's because I'm such a huge burger fan and they had gotten great reviews. There was definitely a trend in other reviews that their service was slow, so I made sure to order on my way just in case. It turns out that I didn't have to wait at all and my... More

The burgers here are made to order. Nothing fancy, just a good burger to enjoy outside iin thee fresh air at a picnic table in the shade. Plenty of chickens around to keep you entertained like usual in Kauai. Service is not particularly friendly, but the burgers are good.

This place got rave reviews from several locals so we though it must be THE burger place. Eh. Not so much. Buns are fresh, onion rings are good, but burger itself is standard patty with no seasoning and not hand-formed. French fries look like Ore-Ida. Same taste, too. Service is speedy without a smile.

So glad we stopped at Duan'es Ono Char-Burger. I had the original burger and added bacon and cheese. The burger was so yummy!

A favorite stop for lunch in Anahola,Kauai. Simple menu, delicious burgers, great atmosphere, Also the locals favorite foods. No fast food here, a time for restful tranquility, welcome service with a smile. friendly family atmosphere. Roosters and chickens will greet you. Love the Marion berry shake.

This place is seriously overrated. The service was poor (lady behind the counter in black tank top is not friendly), the burgers were barely one step up from McDonald's (where's the beef bra?) the facility was dreary, and there are no facilities. The store next door rocks!

Small place on the side of the road that is easy to miss. Great unique burger. We got the local boy and local girl. Grilled burger with teriyaki sauce, onion, lettuce, tomato and fresh pineapple and choice of cheese. Also very good milk shake. Our service was good. Seating on the patio with several roosters and hens waiting for dropped... More

Place was hyped to us so we stopped. Burgers were just ok and stingy on the meat. Agree about girl in black tank top - super rude and unfriendly. Go to Whalers next door instead.

Thank AMartella
