We had heard lots about the burgers at Bubba's. The line to order was very long. The burger was okay, but nothing to rate about.

When visiting Kauai, you have to take time to stop and have a burger at Bubba's they are the best in Kauai and as their saying goes "they relish your buns."

We had the famous bubba's burger with the secret sauce. Normally my picky eating husband would consider eating a "relish" on a burger but I didn't tell him and he loved it. The fries were good and the burgers were good. The restaurant was simple, but cozy. It had neat memorabilia. If you are craving a great burger this is... More

One of Kauai's favorite burger joints. Always good, great for a quick lunch. Bubba's has several locations around the island. Consistent quality & service. No alcohol but a wide selection of soft drinks. Inside & outside seating. Food selection includes salads, chili & chicken dishes.

If you like steak tartar you'll like the burgers here. Too rare for me with pink still showing. Make your own decision. They were tasty bug?

These guys are burger-masters. Good-quality local meat. Follow their lead with the sauce and the relish - you won't be disappointed. The onion rings were okay but the fries were great. Excellent lunchtime meal midst a day at Hanalei Beach.

Stand on line but it's definitely worth the wait, one of our favorite eating spots on Kaua'i that won't break the bank. Anything here is delicious and cooked to perfection. Sit at the picnic tables or check out the local merchants behind Bubbas.

Walk up window and lots of good places to sit and eat your fabulous burger. Get the 'frings' and get both fries and onion rings. They have shakes too!

Crispy juicy burgers. Great bun. Good fries & onion rings. This place absolutely earns its reputation.

I ordered a taro (vegan) hamburger, primarily out of curiosity, and am sure I got ground beef. Not something a vegetarian wants to hear. For the rest of us, delicious if all you want is a hamburger.
