Verna's is a favorite among locals, who come for the moist homemade burgers and filling plate lunches. The price is right with a burger combo that includes fries and a drink for just $5.50. If you're hungry for more, try the traditional Hawaiian plate with laulau, beef stew, chicken long rice, lomilomi salmon; or the smoked meat plate (a local specialty) smothered in onions and served with rice and macaroni salad. Whatever you choose, you won't leave hungry.
Late-night revelers take note: Verna's is one of the only joints in Hilo that's open 24 hours every day.
