One would think when you visit a vendor such as the Burger Bus you will be getting some homemade Burger with a well kept family secret recipe. Not here, the food here falls very flat with a pre-made burger patty- no extra seasoning added. Let's the foodie down.

Nothing fancy but it is good. You get a better burger and fries than you would get at McDonalds. The service has always been great. You can call in your order ahead of time and they will have it ready for you. They close at 6pm I believe so it's mainly a lunch spot or early dinner.

I've been going to the Burger Bus for years. I always order a Hawaiian Chicken with poppers instead of fries. They always give me extra napkins because it is as messy as it is delicious, smothered in teriyaki sauce and melted cheese. The only downside is that they get super busy, to the point that they turn off the phone... More

Information on Trip Advisor needs to be updated. This place is closed Sundays and Mondays now, maybe because it's September?

The locals are super stoked that the burger bus broke down in kenai some 30 years ago (or more), for ever since they parked it at this lot, it became an instant success. Their burgers are some of the best I've had, and I was like the Kenai killer burger which has jalapeños another spicy things. They give you a... More

Love the burger bus and go there every year. They have great burgers and halibut burgers and onion rings. Make it one of our stops every year that we visit Kenai.

Went for the first time and was not disappointed. The burgers are flavorful juicy and perfectly cooked. Fries are not bad either. Not a big location so sometimes it takes a few extra minutes to get your meal. Has plenty of outdoor seating if the weather is good. Biggest plus was the price, one of the few places that doesn't...

Best burger in town. Also offers fish and chips and some sandwiches. Burgers come with all the fix ins-incuding mayo so order no sauce if you don't like mayo

This is where the locals go for a good burger at a good price. They've been in business for a long time, but have kept the overhead low so they don't have to charge a lot. We usually grab some burgers and eat them at the little park overlooking the bluff just down the road. The people who run Burger... More
