Located on the north end of Highway 19 from Waimea with a small car park beside it (watch out because the ramp into the car park will reck anything other than a 4 by 4). Restrooms are also located outside from the main restaurant.
Texas BBQ style interior, fully decked out in solid wood. It has a very old school feel about the place. There are tables and chairs and also a stool and bar section looking out onto the road.
Service consisted of one waitress who was very friendly and on the ball.
Outside and not great. Avoid if possible!
Back in England when I think of Fries I think of those string like things that you can get in McDonalds but over in Hawaii, I was glad that Fries were the equvalent of ‘Chips’ back home. Even better was the fact that the fries had the jacket on them and were also seasoned well. They had a wonderful crisp texture to them which lingers in my mind still. The burgers were generous in size and were of a high standard. The burgers would beat any supermarket or chain gourmet burger restaurant in the UK hands down, they are even almost as good as my own home made angus burgers. The reason simply being that the beef used in the USA is not the best. USA Angus pales in comparison to Aberdeen Angus and is no fault of the restaurant. The drinks tasted very fresh and a few boxes of local produce were on display to remind us of the locally sourced ingredients. On reflection, my first meal as a married man was very good in quality and value. I would recommend this place ot anyone who wants to try out a really good burger and fries in Hawaii.
