Bacon cheeseburger was fantastic. Juicy burger, great flavor. Staff is very friendly, location is good; outside seating is available, parking lot behind the building, and still right off the street. Highly recommend!

Had take out here. Four different meals, all were fantastic. Would highly recommend the deep fried spicy chicken. Fries and onion rings were spectacular.

We stopped here due to good reviews on Yelp and we are very glad we did. We both ordered burgers 1 cheese 1 Applewood bacon , delicious ! The price was better than i have seen elsewhere in Kona. This place would be crazy busy...if it were closer and more visible to those walking on Alli dr. Its about 40yds off the main drag so it doesn't standout visually.More

This was by far one of the biggest let downs ever. Should have known better when we walked in during peak lunch hours and the place was empty. Burnt dry onion rings. Scorched burger that was inedible, fries had no flavor asked for a large...soda and was given a small cup, and my son's hot dog was so burnt and dry including the bun that he wouldn't eat it. A three year old wouldn't eat a hotdog! That's how bad it was They actually serve this food with pride! I usually don't leave bad reviews but I actually feel taken advantage of by this place and ripped off. We essentially paid 30 dollars for garbage. Wait no burnt garbage. I'd say stay away but with food this bad im sure they won't make it much longer. I leave this review on trip advisor beacuse someone at Yelp is clearly dropping the ball. 8th best burger! Try again. FYI they're is a McDonald's not one mile from this place and you'll get a way better meal at a better price. This place was gross!More
