Chubbies Burgers

Chubbies offers high-quality burgers made with locally-sourced ingredients, made to order and served hot and fresh every time. The burgers are made with premium grass-fed local beef, smashed on a traditional griddle, so the patty cooks fast and stays juicy while being seared. The beef gets topped with fresh produce, homemade sauce, and is tucked into a handmade local potato bun. Open Tuesday through Sunday 10:30am to 9pm. Closed Monday.  chubbiesburgers.com

The Daley

This smash burger is out of control! If you can’t get enough, order the double. There’s also a veggie burger for the non-meat-eaters. This is one of the newest burger spots in Honolulu, and it’s become very popular. Go see what it’s all about and smash one. Open Tuesday through Saturday 11am to 8pm, Sunday 11am to 6pm, and Monday 11am to 9pm. thedaleyburger.com

This restaurant is the creation of a husband and wife duo — think Brooklyn, New York meets downtown Honolulu. The food is arguably some of the best on Oahu — the American-style menu includes the delicious Chaz Burger. We recommend adding bacon and smashed avocado! There’s also a quinoa burger in case you’re the only herbivore at the table. Open Monday through Thursday 11am to 9pm. Friday and Saturday 11am to 10pm. Closed Sunday. fetehawaii.com

Livestock Tavern

Bacon onion marmalade, melted gruyere cheese, frisee and tomato on a brioche bun … what more do you need on your burger? Located smack dab in the middle of Chinatown, this hip little joint also offers some serious cocktails. It makes for a great stop while checking out the town. Open daily 5pm to 10pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am to 2pm.  livestocktavern.com

Mahaloha Burger

Owner Jesse Aguinaldo had the vision of opening up a burger joint that serves quality burgers — that vision became Mahaloha Burger, where all burgers are made with quality grass-fed beef and fresh, natural ingredients. Grass-fed Big Island beef and fresh veggies never tasted so good! Open daily 11am to 8pm. facebook.com/mahalohaburgerkalakaua

Square Barrels

This place looks like a regular burger-friendly pub but Square Barrels is not joking around when it comes to pairings, ingredients and taste. There are over 20 draft beers on tap to help wash down their signature Drive-Thru Burger made with local ground beef. The Square Barrels menu is inspired by the old-fashioned college meal but it’s a more refined, mature and gourmet version. Open Tuesday through Friday 11:30am to 2pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 4pm to 9pm, and Thursday through Saturday 4pm to 10pm. Closed Sunday and Monday. squarebarrels.com
