Honolulu’s Greatest Burgers Article includes our Grand Tiki Burger - Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Not that you really need an excuse…but these last few days of May provide a perfect opportunity to eat a burger or two more than usual.
As National Burger Month concludes, we’ve been on the lookout for some special burgers at city restaurants. Yes, they’re a little pricier than your average fast food patty , but what do you get for the extra dollars? Grass fed beef, locally sourced greens and tomatoes, imported Irish cheese, and even a choice of bison, buffalo or ostrich. With space limitations it’s impossible to print a complete list of Honolulu’s greatest burgers – but here are a few firm favorites to get you started.

Here is the section about our burger:

Grand Tiki Burger
You might not expect to find a great burger on the roof top of a hotel in Waikiki, but the Tiki Burger has been a hit with locals and tourists alike, since the restaurant opened. Tiki’s uses Maui Cattle Company ground beef in their 1/2lb patty, served on a toasted sesame seed bun stacked with sweet onions, sliced pickles, iceberg lettuce and sliced roma tomatoes.

The Grand Tiki is $12, and for an extra $4, you can double up and get yourself a full one-pound of ground beef on a bun. While you’re there, you might want to try the locally inspired Fried Green Tomato Sandwich; thick slices of Waialua-grown tomatoes fried in cornmeal and topped with goat cheese and island papaya salad.
