The staff was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was pleasant for a fast food type burger joint. The fresh lemonade was yummy! The fries were very good too. The bun and all the condiments were good but my burger was a bit chewy, I like my burger soft without boingy things in it

This place is in a strip mall, but don't let that fool you- this place is legit. Great burgers with lots of options of toppings- I suggest the grilled pineapple. I had the fish burger and it was great! The French fries and onion rings were great too.

We go to this burger joint several time while we are vacationing on the Big Island. The Garlic Aioli frys are so delicious(don't share them, you will want your own). Fresh local meat and always very good.

The bun is soft. The meat was cooked good. The overall flavor is good, but not worth the $17 with fries not including a drink. The fries were too thin, salty and oily. The aioli sauce is good. Small place, so I ordered take out. Looks clean and nice atmosphere.

We have been to Ultimate Burger several times. Five of us went for lunch and each had different burgers. We all loved them. The staff were fast and polite. What more could you expect from a burger joint?

Ultimate is a great name for this Burger joint, it's located in a strip mall. The burgers are made with grass fed Big Island beef. One of the best burgers I have eaten, good local atmosphere, I will be back.

We were on the way to our hotel and we were starving. We found that place and didn't regret it. Excellent and tasty burgers with fresh ingredients of course with delicious fries. The staff is really friendly and the atmosphere is casual. What a nice way to end the day !

No visit to the Big Island is brought together without a stop here; the burgers and fries are just plain great with a capitol G. The staff is island friendly, the atmosphere is casual and there's good draft beer.
