Dig In To The Best Burger on Maui
Front Street, Lahaina, is home to two famous burger joints. One has an oceanfront location and the name of a Jimmy Buffet song, and the other simply has the island's best burgers. While there's no denying the popularity of famously-named "Cheeseburger in Paradise", island locals and visitors in-the-know opt instead for Cool Cat Cafe. The title, really, isn't all that subjective; Cool Cats has been recognized as having the "best burger on Maui" for an astounding 10 years in a row. This airy diner looking out over the Banyan Tree uses a trademark blend of seasonings and spices in their belt-loosening selection of burgers, and the bar is a colorful collection of boat crew who are cheerily drinking away their tips. For a Hawaiian-themed burger, spring for the "Don Ho" which is covered in a tasty teriyaki and pineapple. For a burger with avocado, the "Luna" features bacon, avocado, and melted Jack cheese, or test your taste buds with a spicy "La Bamba" where the burger is topped with chili, cheddar, and sweet Maui onions. The restaurant has live music seven nights a week and donates to the local community, so if you're walking down Front Street and get a carnivorous craving, climb the stairs of the Wharf Cinema Center for a taste of what is officially the best burger on Maui.
