With a trip to Cheeseburger in Paradise, you’ll quickly realize that the name says it all. At this popular Lahaina eatery, they make it their mission to serve the tastiest cheeseburgers around right on the waterfront. While gazing in awe at the view of the oceanside, you can savor bite after bite of cheesy, meaty deliciousness all your own making. Although they have tons of premade burger builds, the real magic is elevating your meal with selections that suit your fancy.

You’re more than welcome to map out your culinary journey by picking and choosing between their many extras, like caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, avocado, fried egg, bleu cheese crumbles, and so much more. For the perfect Hawaiian kick, go with the grilled pineapple, onion rings, and bacon for sure. Each addition comes at an extra charge, but they’re all worth exploring.

They don’t stop at burger perfection either. Other fan favorites on the menu include Blackened Catch of the Day Fish Sandwiches, Corn Dog Platters, and Loco Moco. If you’d like to skip the meat, they also have a stunning array of delicious salads, plus The Beyond Burger. Before you get to all that, don’t forget to take a peek at their tasty appetizers, like Shoyu Poke, Egg Rolls, and Coconut Shrimp.

Although the quality food is always worth a visit all on its own, the full bar sweetens the deal considerably. Specialty cocktails with fun tropical flavors kick off their offerings, but they also have Waikiki Brewin Company Cans plus many other local brews. Seltzer and hard ciders remain on the regular rotation as well along with several top-notch wines.

Don’t miss out on the:

Sunset Sangria
For a bright, refreshing alcohol beverage, you cannot go wrong with the Sunset Sangria. They mix up this drink using red wine, orange juice, and raspberry puree. Then, fresh fruit joins the party. Want to take it to the next level? Add shot of rum for an extra charge.   

Shoyu Poke
The Shoya Poke comes chockfull of amazing flavor that promises to whet your appetite and get you ready for the main course. This app starts with island-caught ahi cubed up just right. After that, they add shaved red onions, avocado chunks, and green onion to bring it all together.

Cheeseburger in Paradise
You absolutely must try the Cheeseburger in Paradise at least once to see why it’s their signature dish. Well-known as the original five napkin cheeseburger, this dish begins with a grilled patty put on a toasted brioche bun. Over that, they pile on the Colby jack cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato, and mayo.

Not in the mood for fries? That’s okay! Just ask to swap them out for onion rings at no extra cost. For an extra charge, you can get a side salad or fried pickles instead. Change it up on the regular to get a taste of all their amazing offerings and see just why this spot stays so popular year-round.
