Best Burgers in Hawaii – Top 10 Cheeseburgers
Our friends at On The Go Charleston reminded us that today is National Cheeseburger Day. After reading their blog How to Celebrate National Cheeseburger Day I started to think about all of the delicious burgers in Hawaii. Check out my list of the best burgers in Hawaii.
1. Yumi’s Lava Burger
This is by far the best burger I have ever eaten. Yumi’s is located on Kauai and is a great place to stop on your way to or from Waimea Canyon. The burger, made from local grass fed beef, gets it’s name from the cheese in the middle that oozes out like lava.
2. Bubba Burgers
With 3 locations on Kauai (Kapaa, Hanalei and Poipu) you are always near a Bubba Burgers. They use fresh ground Kauai grass fed beef. I always order a Teriyaki Cheeseburger and onion rings! It is my favorite way to refuel after a day at Hanalei Bay!
Duke’s is famous for its lunch buffet, salad bar, fresh fish and cocktails. Their Hula Pie even made my list of 10 Foods to try on your Hawaii Vacation. What many people don’t know is that they also serve a delicious burger. The Duke’s Cheddar Burger is Hawaii Rancher’s beef chuck on a brioche bun with aged cheddar, lettuce, tomato and Maui island dressing. I suggest washing it down with a Plantation Tea or a Mai Tai.
4. Teddy’s Bigger Burgers
The first Teddy’s Bigger Burgers opened in 1998 at the foot of Diamond Head on Oahu. Teddy’s boasts a 50’s theme and a simple yet delicious menu of burgers, fries and shakes. Be sure to try their secret super sauce!
5. Kalapaki Beach Hut
The biggest problem at Kalapaki Beach Hut on Kauai is deciding what to order. They make delicious breakfast sandwiches but their burger is one of the best I have ever had. The Kalapaki Beach Hut burgers are made from Kauai grass fed beef. You can add cheese, teriyaki, pineapple, bacon and mushrooms. Don’t forget to upgrade to the delicious taro bun!
6. McDonalds – McTeri Burger
McDonald’s may be the last place you think to eat on a Hawaii Vacation but you may want to stop in to check out their local menu. McDonalds Hawaii serves Hawaiian flavors such as spam, rice, haupia pies and taro pies. They also have a seasonal favorite, the McTeri Deluxe. The all-beef patty is marinated in teriyaki sauce and served with lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo.
7. Mahaloha Burger
Mahaloha Burger is my son’s favorite burger. He loves to go to the food court at the Royal Hawaiian Center on Oahu and order a Mahaloha Burger. The fresh all natural grass-fed beef comes from the Big Island of Hawaii. The varieties of burgers include the signature Mahaloha Burger, Loco Moco Burger, Chicken Katsu Burger and Turkey Burger.
Located in the Parker Ranch Center in Kamuela on the Big Island this burger was ranked as one of the nation’s top 10 burgers according to TripAdvisor.com. The local ingredients in the traditional burgers make the Big Island Beef Burger, Hawaiian Red Veal Burger and the Kahua Ranch Wagyu Burger some of the best burgers in the world! Everything at Village Burger is local including the fresh, delicious toppings.
9. Cheeseburger in Paradise
With 2 locations on Maui and 3 locations in Waikiki there is a good chance you will find yourself at Cheeseburger in Paradise. Cheeseburger in Paradise boasts a big gooey cheeseburger. The burgers may not be the best in Hawaii but the ambiance – especially the beautiful Lahaina Maui location will put you in a Paradise state of mind.
10. Lunch Break during Hawaii Activities
I end the list with the best burger in the world – any burger served with majestic Hawaii views. Several Hawaii Activities serve a delicious lunch of fresh grilled burgers. The Kauai Na Pali Coast cruise pictured below serves delicious burgers with a side of stunning views of the world famous Na Pali coast. It doesn’t get much better than this!
