After several recommendations, we decided to see what all the hype was about. After all, how good can a burger be? DAMN DELICIOUS!!!! That's how good! Warm, welcoming staff and great family atmosphere to boot.

The quality of the beef on the Big Island is unmatched. Grass feed and fresh. Because of this, the burger selection here is outstanding. You just have to go to the Hilo Burger Joint at least once. Parking is difficult. Park across the street at the mall.

Great burgers and beer selection, with some choices from local breweries. A good place to eat after a day out touring.

This is in Hilo, parking is a bit tough to find but the host there pointed us towards some good free parking. There is a great beer selection and a ton of different kinds of burgers. Service was great and fast. They were attentive to my son and seemed to be kid-friendly. We ended up having a very pleasant dinner... More

Many different choices of burgers. I chose the lava burger and was not disappointed. Wasn't the best burger I have ever had, but it was good and I would go back again and try a different burger just to try some of the other choices.

We found this place on Trip Advisor, so we had to give it a try. A typical corner bar atmosphere, although not actually on the corner. I don't remember the name of the burger I ordered but it was described like Kobe beef. I ask for it to be cooked medium and that's exactly how it came out. It comes... More

My wife and I stopped in Friday night. The place was about half full. We have been there several times before. We ordered an appetizer. The appetizer came out with the water. We ordered the sizzling steak platter for each of us. And a salad to share at the same time we ordered the appetizer. One hour later our meals... More
