My sister was visiting the island and wanted to go back to Kua Aina, where she had eaten many times previously. The 5 of us had everything from Mahi-Mahi-Mahi burger (a fish favorite) to my Bacon-Avo-Burger, throw in some sizzling French Fires & you are good to go! Not only great for the locals, but the Japanese tourists flock to... More

Kua Aina set the bar for sumptuous gourmet burgers in Haleiwa in the mid 70s and remains the town local favorite! They use only the tastiest beef for their hamburgers and let you choose the size. Included in the price are grilled onions and the usual toppings but to take it over the top, adding half of a creamy avocado... More

We really enjoyed our lunch here. The burgers were massive, cooked to perfection and delicious. There was a minimal wait time on our food and they were happy to cook a special order for one of our children. This place is worth the visit as is the town of Haleiwa.

Forlorn that the shop at Ward is closed I chose to drive to the North Shore for a burger and order of fries. So wonderful I would have gone again but my ship set sail the following day so will just have to remember the piled high burger of Nebraska beef with grilled onions, avocado and bacon.

We visited this hamburger/sandwich shop a few years ago and we're glad to see it was still in business. Great burger and a variety to choose from. I literally had to cut my avocado burger into bites because with 1/2 an avocado on it, I couldn't fit it in my mouth. Yum! With 8 people in our group we tried... More

We stopped here after the Dole plantation tour. The concierge at our hotel had recommended Kua Aina as Oahu's answer to In and Out. I thought the food was good but In and Out burgers are still better (although my daughter disagrees - she loved her burger). But, I will say their fries are outstanding. Best fries I've had in...

Nothing, absolutely nothing is better after a beach outing of any sort on the North Shore than Kua Aina. I am salivating as I write this. Their mahi-mahi-mahi sandwich is really a burger--a thick slab of perfectly grilled mahi-mahi that melts in your mouth is the heart of this gourmet gift from the gods, wrapped in lettuce, tomato, sauce, bun,...

We had a great lunch here. The Mahi Mahi sandwich is really good and so are the burgers. It's definitely a place to try if you are in haliewa.

We ate an early dinner here one day as a hydro pole had fallen on the Kamehameha Highway and we couldn't get back to our resort. It was burgers and sandwiches with a fairly high price tag. I liked the tables by the tiki torches. There was nothing special about this place but all of Haleiwa is kind of a... More

On our last days in Hawaii, after having eaten a lot of fish and seafood, we missed some beef and a good burger joint showed up in front of us. The burgers there are out of this world!! Delicious buns and also fantastic thin like matches fries. Cool atmosphere too! I had a pineapple burger wit added bacon and cheese.... More
