WAIMEA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) - By Jon Rombaoa

A Big Island restaurant is getting national recognition in the burger scene today as TripAdvisor announced the 10 best burger restaurants in the country.

Based on the reviews and opinions of travelers on the TripAdvisor websiteVillage Burger, scored a spot on TripAdvisor's list of the top burger joints in the U.S.  The restaurant has been recommended by 90 percent of 196 reviews and received a rating of 4.5 out of 5.

"We were a little wary about ordering a burger when there are so many other choices.  A friend offered us a bite of his burger and we were sold.  I ordered mine medium (rare) and it was cooked to perfection," TripAdvisor reviewer oceanfrontescapes said.  "You can really taste the difference with fresh local beef.   I am forever spoiled now that I know how a burger can taste."

According to Village Burger's menu, the beef is described as "All pasture raised Hawaiian beef & veal, hormone & antibiotic free, hand created daily & cooked to order."

Beef is not the only item on the menu as Village Burger also offers ahi burgers, vegetarian burgers and salad with a wide variety of toppings and sides.

Village Burger is located in Parker Ranch Center in Waimea, Hawaii.  You may also call 808-885-7319 or visit their website at
