H & S “Healthy and Smile” Burger, Onna
CONTRIBUTED BY “MAGNUS verMASTERNAK”
I ran out of propane on the 4th of July, so I rolled down the street for some soba. Great soba (recorded in this article by my wife on Okinawa Hai), but not really American Independence Day food. I was jonesing, so on the 5th of July I decided to go to H & S Burger in Onna. I’ve driven by the colorful building on highway 58 a number of times and have been looking forward to trying “Healthy and Smile” Burger.
H & S Burger is laid back and beachy, with burger and Hawaiian themed decor and kitschy little random knick-knacks everywhere. The owners played an instrumental sound track of classic and contemporary tunes. Its dining room has 4x tables with seating for 4 at each, 1x table with seating for 2, and a bar facing the front window of the shop with seating for 4.
I ordered the BLT burger. It came on a buttered and toasted sesame seed bun with a side of fries, which were like McDonald’s fries, although less crisp but nicely seasoned. I snapped a photo and started piling on some fries, because I’m from Pittsburgh and we do that. I took a bite and chewed slowly to really feel it out, and then proceeded to go ham on that burger. It was outstanding. Well-seasoned and tender, with meaty, smoky bacon and fresh toppings. Not huge but not small either. My wife would be pretty full from eating one, but I could have eaten two… it was so good! I almost did order another one to go, but then I thought of the heart again. “Healthy & Smile” Burger… not healthy, but I did leave with a smile.
