Hamburger Hut’s burgers are what you would get if In-N-Out went upmarket. They serve craft cocktails and frosty adult slushies, and swap regular ground beef for 100 percent grass-fed wagyu that’s sandwiched between King’s Hawaiian sweet buns. Even if you’re not in the mood for beef, the menu has a fish burger with chili-lime tartar and fresh poke with taro chips. They’ve got a great partially-covered outdoor patio with a fire pit, which makes this a perfect spot to bring kids or just have a relaxed group meal. Plus, its location on the 101, a short distance from Moonlight Beach, makes it an ideal pre- or post-beach stop.
