Burgers have never been my thing. I know some people that swear by them. I don’t get it. I personally prefer garden burgers to the real thing. I guess that’s why it took me so long to eat at Kua ‘Aina.

Not very busy today. As you can see all their tables are fully equipped with all the proper tools. More businesses should copy this. I like having everything I need within arms reach, that way I can focus on eating and not on getting up to get what I need or asking and waiting for it.

Along with the abundant amount of seating inside, there’s also ample amount outside.

I feel like chicken today so that’s what I ordered, a grilled chicken burger, $6.90. It came with lettuce, two slices of tomato and a carrot stick. I like it when places give you veggies to munch on, carrot, celery, pickle, whatever I’ll eat it. The sandwich was tasty. No wow factor, but still nice and filling.

Of course carrots aren’t enough to complete my meal so I ordered a side of fries to go with it, $1.95. They were similar to what some might call shoe string fries, the thin, wimpy, flaccid ones. I don’t like this kind. I like my fries stiff and meaty.

I also ordered a small green salad, $3.40. I was impressed and quite happy with my salad. For $3.40 they certainly filled it up quite nicely with lots of variety and color, just the way I like it.

Also another bonus about this place is that you can B.Y.O.B.  Awesome!

That’s a pretty ballsy name for a taco shop. I remember being referred to this place awhile back and every time we drive by we’re on our way home and say, “oh well, next time we’ll just have to see.” Well, next time finally came and it was time to see if killer taco was to die for.

From the outside the place looks like a dine in restaurant. Being waited on sounds just about right after a long day at the beach.


Ah, dang-it! We were fooled by those dark tinted windows. You mean I have to go up to the counter and order there. Oh, alright, but no tip for you.

Ray ordered a burrito, as usual. I don’t know, the man likes his burritos. I guess you can’t say anything since he’s Mexican. But for once I dare you to order a taco man, no not the pink taco, the Mexican cooked kind you dirty bastard. Ah, forget it. Get a bloody burrito.


He got the Long Board Burrito, $5.49. It came with rice, refried or black beans, choice of meat, cheese, salsa, sour cream and guacamole. As you can see the burrito was a bloody mess. The making of the burrito was poor. I can’t say that this was Ray’s worst burrito, since he’s had so many, the odds are in their favor. But I can say it was a bitch to hear him wine about it throughout lunch. “It’s so soggy. This shit is mushy, My burrito is falling apart. This taste like shit.” Oh, my God, dude, did your dick just start bleeding. Maybe you should stick a Q-tip up that thing and just shut the fuck up so I can eat my food in peace.


I ordered two chicken tacos, one crispy and one soft. They came with the usual, cheese, lettuce, salsa and choice of meat; I chose chicken. The hard taco was $2.19 and the soft was $2.29.


Uh, did someone forget the chicken? Seriously, what am I paying for, a taco shell and scraps of rabbit food.


My soft taco was served and wrapped up in aluminum tin foil. I’m gonna just go ahead and say this was a bit irritating. It probably wouldn’t have annoyed me as much if I didn’t hate my crispy taco, or if Ray had not been at my side bitching about his meal the whole time. So when it came time to eat my soft taco, I think I had already prejudged it.


But it doesn’t change the fact that this taco really was a piece of shit. This is a really sad soft taco. It was a soggy, mushy mess. I ate my flaccid taco and Ray and I quickly headed out.

Maybe we just got them on a bad day, who knows. But with so many great restaurants near by, I don’t think they’ll be seeing me for a while. Click below for directions

Hey guys, just so you know there wasn’t a hit put out on me from some angry restaurant owner that I gave a bad review.  No, I’ve just been really busy, but I’ve got some extra time in my schedule so there should be some new post up soon.
