We likely would have given this place a pass had it not been for TA, totally glad we tried it. Located among busy chain food stores, UB is a stand out. Grain fed beef, cooked to order with awesome topping choices...I went cheese burger w/mushrooms & pineapple, a surprisingly wicked combo! Fries are from Idaho potato's, so they also know... More

We had tried this place awhile ago and was not impressed. However, we ended up here last week and it was GREAT! We had a burger with gorgonzola cheese and bacon. Excellent, very well cooked burger! We also shared some good fries and had a beer on tap. Thanks.

The ambiance of this place is lacking. But the burgers were wonderful and a great price. Grass fed, local beef, and hand cut french fries. They even had a local beer on tap.

The food was all good. The fries are the best and with the special dipping sauce they are better than anything I have every had. Prices are high even by Hawaii standards.

Popped in for a quick burger and fries and we're not disappointed. My husband had the big kahuna burger (struggled to eat it as it was so big!) I went for the ultimate cheeseburger with fries. Both wonderful and the sauce with the fries was lovely

First stop of the vacation for me has to be Ultimate Burger. I simply love this place! Granted it is located in a shopping center amongst a lot of other eating establishments, but don't be put off by this. There is lots of parking and easy to access off Makala Boulevard. I always get the Ultimate cheeseburger with the Aioli... More

We make our own meals while on the islands, but save the last day to eat out as a treat. We wanted someplace close to the airport that had "good" hamburgers and fries--drove through 2 malls before finally find this place. Burgers & fries were great--we had the "utimate burger with one side of fries" -- BIG MISTAKE! After one... More
