Foursquare Tips

  • The classic beef burger is so tasty ..
  • This place is delicious, but $18.62 for a burger and fries is simply too expensive...
  • Oh. my. gawd. I had a classic build your own burger. It was one of the best turkey burgers that I've ever had! Yum! Freshly cut fries with the garlic aioli are delicious!
  • Staff is amazingly nice and the burgers are sooo good. Everything is organic and they also serve burgers on Gluten Free bun if you'd like. Oh and the Sweet Potato Fries are a must order.
  • The dining room is an old WWII bunker.
  • Portobello vege burger is a must try!
  • There's free underground parking and a Quonset hut to eat in. What more do you need?
  • Get the sweet potato fries with the garlic aioli. I hate aioli and I was ready to lick my the canister clean. Too much?
  • All of the burgers can be customized with your choice of a turkey burger, portabello mushroom, or the classic grass-fed beef burger (all three are organic, if that's a deal breaker)
  • The specialty at Pono are burgers w/ an Asian-Hawaiian flavor, so prepare yourself if you're expecting a classic burger. Get the Sassy Wahine burger is because it's fun to say and delicious to eat
  • Camelids onion and soft bun, one of the fewer burger like this so Fantastic!
  • Chef special Island Berger And sweet potato with Island bear
  • Eat in the Quonset Hut. It is a historical WW2-era pre-fab building the developers had to save.
  • I had a Piku Fig burger: organic beef, drunken caramelized fig jam, Brie, bacon, arugula & balsamic vinegarette reduction with sweet potato fries & bacon ranch aioli... Yum!
  • Ask the staff for their favorite.
  • I usually dislike mushroom veggie burgers (I mean they're mushrooms not burgers..), but Pono Burger's is delicious. Utterly addictive
  • Don't get the Posh Burger until you have tried something else first: it will ruin you. You can't go wrong with any burger here, but that one will leave an impression forever. Have it with a beer!
  • Free lemonade with Yelp!
  • Very good quality organic feed beef.
  • The chef special burger with strawberries was okay. The bacon was far too hard for my taste. Next time I will just build my own (or just return to Fathers Office). This place is not cheap.
