Awesome old fashioned style Bar-B-Q burgers and fries are nostalgic. I love the royal. Parking is few and tight. It can get crowded, so I recommend phoning in your order. Closed and Monday, Tuesday, and some holidays.

Was great to make it back here again. Old school flavors that never get tired . Must be doing something right to be open over 60 years. Bring your wallet if you have an empty belly ..

There is not a ton of flare with these burgers, but its simplicity is welcomed. It is a family-style operation and the effort placed into their cooking is to be applauded.

W&M has been consistently one of the best burger places on the island. I've been going here for more than 54 years and their quality, quantity, service, and prices are the best. The parking lot is small so park on a side road or go during non-peak hours. This is a locals favorite, so if you want to eat like... More

These are the burgers I crave whenever I'm in the islands. The parking is horrible, the lines are long, depending on time of day, and their open hours are short. A lot of people now call ahead for pick-up. But what can I say, it's worth it. Fries are small, so if you're a big eater, buy two.

W&M burgers are great fast food burgers. The Royal Burger is exactly what you're hoping for. A wonderful old fashioned burger with outstanding sauce and all of the right stuff to go along with it. These aren't fancy gourmet burgers, but they're sure good. I'll definitely be back many times, but the next time I'm going to cheat and park... More

W&M burger is by far the best burger on the island. Teddy's Bigger Burger is a very close second, and the best choice if you want a standard american cheese burger, but for those who like the teriyaki burger style, this is the only place to go. The patty is so incredibly flavorful with their special teriyaki sauce, and the... More

This old time favorite has some good burgers but I wouldn't say it's cheap by burger stand standards. But if we're going by taste alone, I give it 4 stars. The parking is a pain because the parking lot is so small. And because the burgers are cooked to order, it can take quite a while if they are busy.... More

One of my favorite Burger joint in Honolulu. It's hard to spot. It's immediately after City Mill on Waialae Avenue, almost adjacent to it, in a narrow alley with a small parking lot (good luck for finding a spot but worth a try). The meat is barbecued and served with what I suspect is a mayonnaise and mild wasabi sauce... More

Instant Fan of the HAL SPECIAL. I ordered a HAL special with double patty and the standard BBQ meat. All the trimmings. I can't say much more than delicious. The patty's and meat blend well in that Hawaiian BBQ sauce. The burger holds well in your hand. Holds well intact. It doesn't fall apart in your hard because its obnoxiously... More
