lahaina’s sure thing burger: it sure is an amazing burger!

If you took a two-Michelin-star chef and asked him to create the best burger and fries that he could, the result would be Sure Thing Burger in Lahaina. Josiah Citrin of Los Angeles’ famed restaurant Melisse is behind the simple and amazing burgers at this new spot in Lahaina.

The menu that Citrin and partner Scott Picard have created is for the purist. It consists of four different burgers: Grass Fed Local Maui Beef, Organic Spiced Pork, Free-Range Turkey, and a Hand-Made Veggie Patty). These patties are each adorned with house-made sauces, locally sourced produce, and locally baked fresh buns, and each one is hand pressed.

All burgers are fresh, made to order, offered for $8, and feature fresh accompaniments. I stopped in for lunch just the other day and enjoyed the Beef burger which came with lettuce, tomato, grilled onion, a very tasty STB sauce, and perfectly melted cheese. The Spiced Pork burger is smothered in a Kona bbq sauce, coleslaw, grilled onion, and cheese. Free-Range Turkey burger adds lettuce, tomato, avocado, grilled onion, and an apple-basil sauce which works well with the mild turkey patty. The Veggie patty is hand made, and is served with mixed greens, tomato, and vinaigrette.

Add-ons like bacon, fried egg, and amazing crispy french fries round out the perfectly simple menu. A generous offer is available to Kama‘aina who always receive the $8 burgers for $6.70. Simply mention the kama‘aina offer and show Hawai`i ID.

The walk-up counter is open at 790 Front Street in the Lahaina Marketplace from 11am to 5pm daily, and they have a happy hour special where they offer $4 beef burgers for one hour from 4 to 5pm every day. It’s a great spot to send a hungry family for an early dinner at a great price! Seating is in the courtyard under partially shaded tables.

For more information, please call 214-6982. Bon Appétit!
