    Question Cheesey Gravy Burgers

    Besides the folks living on the Big Island, has anyone here had one?
    You can take the boy out of Hilo but you can't take the Hilo out of the boy!

    Probably next to a newly-built cemetary.

    My heart is literally screaming, "don't you put that thing in here!"

    LOL. You can get them at any fast food place that sells loco mocos. I agree, it's a heart stopper special but it tastes so good.

    A long time ago, gravy burgers were served at the old KK's Place located first on Kilauea Ave. next to the old Savemore Market (now a hardware store) across the old Kaiko'o Mall. KK's then moved toward the downtown area on Kilauea Ave. across the old Food Fair Supermarket. It then relocated to the Waiakea Town area on Kam Ave. and was re-named KK-Tei, but I don't know if the gravy burger was still offered.

    KK-Tei is now named the FIREHOUSE.

    I can't say anything. I make the creamy pepper gravy with sausages. And the chicken gravy and even ham gravy.
    My husband didn't eat gravy at all until he met me.
    Bad me~

    You can always go to a place that serves burgers and loco moco's and ask for a cheeseburger with a side of gravy and put it on yourself. You may get a few odd looks but it works.

    Funny, one of my fave things to order at a few of the local diners here in LA is a Mushroom/swiss Turkey burger.... I always ask for brown gravy on the side and put it on the burger.

    Growing up East Coast, a big thing back there was dippin the fries in gravy....so I just out it on the burger now too.

    Yummy!

    I wondered where that came from?! I like Dairy Queen's chicken basket because they have country gravy with the fries.

    I've had them, but only on the Big Island. Actually, I don't think I ever had a gravy CHEESEburger, but I did have more than my fair share of gravyburgers. Every plate-lunch take-out place has them on the menu. They basically dip the hamburger in gravy before putting it on your bun and wrapping it. I don't remember seeing gravy cheeseburgers there, but that doesn't mean they didn't have them. I was poor, and the cost of two gravyburgers was small; two gravy cheeseburgers might have been out of my range.

    Anyone who knows Hilo: Across the street from Ando Store was a take-out place that sold gravyburgers for super-cheap. What was the name of that place? I used to work at Ando Store and would stop there on my way to work to grab that day's lunch: Usually two gravyburgers.

    Do it during the lunch rush, and maybe others will want to try it. Once it catches on, we'll be albe to talk about how we remember "the birth of the LikaBurger."

    Kandi's. Ahhh. Memories. Double teri loco moco plate (4 scoops rice, 2 teri hamburgers, 2 scoops mac, gravy over) and a cheesey gravy burger boat (burger w/fries). Large slush float on hot days. I could eat a lot when I was younger. :P

    I dunno. I would never add cheese to my loco moco, unless I replace the gravy with chili sauce or italian-style tomato sauce.

    That reminds me, i've always wanted to try Poutine from Montreal. I bet it'd go well with a cheesy gravy burger!

    I dunno. I'm picturing how does one eats a gravy burger. I'm guessing you don't pick it up by hands.

    I'm off to Hilo tomorrow for the weekend. I have a gift certificate for Freddy's Restaurant. I'll also go to Nori's for their Friday special of shoyu pork. Also, Cafe 100, Jimmy's, Tsunami's, Itsu's, and a few other past haunts. And check out to see who, if anyone, still makes GRAVY BURGERS ............
