Hands down the best burger on the island. A must do for anyone who comes to Kauai. Don’t forget to say no onions if you don’t want them too!

We love the food and the staff. Everyone is friendly and the food is amazing. Don’t worry about the long lines, they work fast and you’ll have your burger in a few moments. Just look around and enjoy the views from the picnic tables.

Heard about this place so we thought we’d check it out. Service was fair, overpriced and not very good quality at all. We had a hamburger, fries(which didn’t come with the burger, additional high price) if you wanted that)and a chocolate shake and a soda....More

I don’t eat beef and I love bubba’s. Excellent cheap eats. Classic 1950’s burgers and great fries. We have been eating at bubba’s for 25 years.

Bubba's was recommended by a friend who visits Kauai frequently. We stopped at the Bubba's in Kapa'a on the way to Hanalei. Simple menu, in the mode of In 'N Out Burger and Five Guys, Bubba's focuses on its core menu of burgers and fries....More

This friendly burger place has delicious made-to-order burgers. Even the Taro Burger is worth trying!

We have been on the island for a week now and absolutely can't get enough of these burgers! Fast, friendly service with a side of the most delectable cheeseburger! It's a MUST!

We loved the burger and onion rings. Try it their style and you will love it. The atmosphere and view overlooking the ocean front was great. You even get to see several roosters dodging cars on the main road while you eat.
