“Outstanding burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

It's worth an afternoon drive to Waimea just to have one of these cooked to order burgers. They don't have an outstanding selection and they don't have to, what they have is one of the best, juicest burgers you will ever have. A former 4 star chef at one of Hawaii's best restaurants decided to pursue a more laidback life in Waimea and I'm glad he did.

“Local,Organic,Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

Village Burgers is the best food on the island. Local Beef, Ahi & Veggie Burgers-the greatest shakes and fries-When you visit Waip'o Falls or Waimea don't miss this outstanding choice.

“Best burger on the island - even if you don't feel like you're on an island.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

There lies the problem with Hawaii. You pay through the nose for o.k. food with a view most of the time. On the other hand, you can drive up to Waimea in the Parker Ranch strip mall and enjoy a truly great burger made with organic and local ingredients (they have a poster on the wall showing where all their products come from - all within a few miles).
I love the Roy's, Merriman's, Ruth's Chris Etc... that dot Hawaii, but none offer a burger that can touch Village Burger. While you're at it, give their truffle fries a try.
They also offer a nice vegetarian mushroom burger, a few salad choices (a lovely nicoise) and a delicious ahi burger.

“Great for Vegetarians”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

I had read about this restaurant in the Hawaiian Airlines magazine and it had mentioned a vegetarian mushroom burger. This sounded good, so I thought I would try this as I was going through Waimea to Hilo around lunch time. I had the mushroom burger and it was delicious. The only suggestion I would have is more lettuce and tomato on the sandwich please. I also got the french fries with a herb Parmesan topping. They were very thin FF and very crisp. Delicious. On my way back from Hilo it just had to be dinner time. I had noticed there was another vegetarian option, a taro burger, so I thought I should try it also. This was a more soft pattie that was very good also. Once again, more lettuce and tomatos would be better. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I also had the herb ice tea that was delightfully refreshing and delicious. The girl taking orders at lunchtime was not able to answer questions very well about the vegetarian options. Kind of "why are you here if you don't eat meat" attitude. The gal at dinner time was very helpful, and friendly. Would go back again.

“Super huge tasty burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

Big messy tasty burgers made with all local ingredients. The parmesan fries were awesome too. These are some of the best burgers on the Island, but like other high end burger places, they aren't cheap and there is zero atmosphere - here you order at the counter and either eat outside overlooking the parking lot or inside the food court along side someone slurping down an Orange Julius.
