Meal: decent burgers and sweet potato fries, exactly what we ordered. A couple of interesting beers. Waitress spoke as little as possible, did not offer a high chair for the 9-month-old baby we carried in, had to fetch it ourselves. Quite possibly the least friendly...More

After we went zip-lining in the rain, and on the recommendation of the van driver, we arrived at the Hilo Burger Joint about 3 in the afternoon--and we were starving! The burgers and GARLIC fries were exactly what we needed. Delicious!!!! Needing one gluten-free meal...More

Easily the best burger I've ever had. The Wagyu beef was so soft and went so well in the Hilo burger. The food didn't take very long to come and it was absolutely delicious. They have great hot sauce too!
