Stewz Burgers south of Kihei has earned its accolades of the “Best Burger” in Hawaii. Visitors agree. They often claim this to be the best place on Maui for a burger. Its use of natural, local ingredients and attention to detail mean you’ll get consistently delicious burgers, fries, and more whenever you visit.

This restaurant serves its gourmet burgers in a laid-back setting. You have the option of eating inside, sitting at the outdoor tables, or taking your food to go.

All the stellar burgers on the menu start with locally raised, grass-fed Maui beef. Toppings come from as many local and natural ingredients as the kitchen can source. You have the option of ordering a basic burger and adding toppings. Alternatively, choose a specialty burger or sandwich for a flavor sensation. For instance, the Kihei burger uses barbecue sauce and other flavorings for a smokey, hearty meal. The Makena burger gives you a sweet, salty, and savory sandwich by combining grilled pineapple, teriyaki sauce, and bacon with beef on a sweet Hawaiian bun.

You don’t have to eat beef, either to find a tasty meal at Stewz Burgers. There are chicken, fish, and vegetarian options so everyone with you can find something to enjoy. You’ll find plenty on the menu to explore to keep your experiences at Stewz fresh.

Taste some of the best on the menu Stewz Burgers offers:

Kihei Burger
If your cravings lean toward barbecue, try the Kihei burger. This specialty sandwich includes bacon, cheddar cheese, onion rings, and barbecue sauce on a 6-ounce grass-fed burger patty. It perfectly combines sweet and savory for a filling burger to satisfy for lunch or dinner.

Kula Burger
The Kula burger spices up the grass-fed beef burger base. You get avocado, red onions, roasted poblano peppers, Monterey Jack cheese, and a house chipotle lime aioli. If you think the Kula burger has a lot of toppings, you’re right. It was named the “Most Over the Top Burger” in Hawaii by Bring your appetite if you order this one.

The sweet potato fries and onion rings both come highly recommended. However, if you cannot decide between these two sides, know that you don’t have to when you order Springs. This side dish consists of half onion rings and half sweet potato fries. You get to sample both with your burger, making this a great choice when you can’t decide or want to share your side.

Not a burger but a mahi-mahi sandwich that is as hearty as any burger on the menu. The sandwich comes with a grilled mahi-mahi fillet, tomato, greens, and lemon dill caper aioli made in-house. As with the rest of the sandwiches and burgers, the Lahaina starts with fresh, not frozen meat, in this case, fish. Since the sandwich is prepared fresh, you can opt to adjust the toppings. However, many diners who in other places request more flavor additions to their mahi-mahi sandwiches find the balance of flavors perfect on the Lahaina at Stewz.

Make Stewz Burgers your go-to spot on Maui for tasty burgers and cold drinks whenever the cravings strike.
