If you like steak tartar you'll like the burgers here. Too rare for me with pink still showing. Make your own decision. They were tasty bug?

These guys are burger-masters. Good-quality local meat. Follow their lead with the sauce and the relish - you won't be disappointed. The onion rings were okay but the fries were great. Excellent lunchtime meal midst a day at Hanalei Beach.

Stand on line but it's definitely worth the wait, one of our favorite eating spots on Kaua'i that won't break the bank. Anything here is delicious and cooked to perfection. Sit at the picnic tables or check out the local merchants behind Bubbas.

Walk up window and lots of good places to sit and eat your fabulous burger. Get the 'frings' and get both fries and onion rings. They have shakes too!

Crispy juicy burgers. Great bun. Good fries & onion rings. This place absolutely earns its reputation.

I ordered a taro (vegan) hamburger, primarily out of curiosity, and am sure I got ground beef. Not something a vegetarian wants to hear. For the rest of us, delicious if all you want is a hamburger.

Stopped in for a teriyaki burger very good but the fries were exceptional. They are very light and crunchy delicious! Lots of locals eating there also which usually means good food and it was. Big variety of burgers on the menu. My wife isn't a big burger fan and she really liked it too.

We had a small wait in line as it was peak lunch hour. They were crazy busy but, the young lady who took our order was patient and sweet. Our order took about 10 minutes, well worth the wait and there were free cups next to the water cooler. They had their own porch seating, but there were also plenty... More

With everything in Kauai Costing a fortune this seemed decently priced. Still smaller portions than you'd expect. But decent food, good staff.

I had a Bubba's burger this week and I think that you get what you pay for! I did like the price of the burger (very competitive), but it is a burger. Good if you are on a budget or you like a traditional burger.

Thank Jacopo R
