Captain Kangaroo has wonderful burgers! The wait for us was about 45 minutes, but well worth it! The restaurant is quaint and cozy! The clientele was about 50/50 Japanese and American, which shows you even the locals love it. There is a beach right behind...More

Each time I'm in Nago and drive around the Motobu peninsula I frequently notice the long lines of tourists waiting outside Captain Kangaroo for their famous burgers. I've always been too impatient to wait but this week I was willing to wait and it was...More

This place is great if you have all day to eat a burger! It literally took 2.5 hrs to get seated and eat. Sounds crazy, but be ready to camp out and wait if you are craving a descent burger on Oki.

Not a bad place would drive this far up just to come back. If you are in the neck of the woods of this place stop in grab a bite. I wasn't impressed by it but others swear by it. To each their own, I...More

My husband heard of the awesome burgers and we gave this place a try. Burgers are awesome but expect a wait to be seated and to get your food. Also cash only! If I crave a super good burger again I will come back

I was skeptical when my travel partner suggested this restaurant, but the burgers were surprisingly good - juicy, tender and really flavorful. Worth the visit! however, the setup was really simple, gave a beach cafe feel.
