Good Eats: Fatt Chicks Burgers New Location

Close to a decade ago a chef named Bonny decided to create her version of the perfect burger. What began at home – then eventually in a tent at the corner of Market Street – has evolved into a restaurant, food truck and back to their street festival roots.

Fatt Chicks Burgers (now located in Makawao) Chef Bonny and wife Tootsie have literally created the most delicious, tastiest and best value burger on Maui. From the ultra-buttery brioche bun, to the decadently moist, flavorful patty and super-secret mouthwatering sauce; this burger will knock your socks off. Add to that savory goodness perfectly crisp and hot slightly spicy seasoned fries and your tummy will be full of umami deliciousness.

Fatt Chicks Burgers has debuted a new location, in a food trailer, off of Kiopaa Street (next to Longs) in Makawao.

Previously located in Waiehu, Fatt Chicks Burgers has just relocated their unmistakable burgers and other comfort foods upcountry — where hopefully the supply will meet continue to meet the demand. “The main reasons why we chose to move our business to the upcountry area were that we are from Makawao, and also received many requests from our followers to have more dining options in this area given that there are very few places to eat,” Boony and Tootsie said.

The burger is moist, delicious, generous, affordable and hearty.

I was thoroughly impressed with the epic size of the Fatt Chicks Ultimate Bacon Cheese Burger which consists of 1/2 a pound of grass fed beef, signature secret sauce, cheese, crispy bacon bits, fresh lettuce and thick sliced tomato. (note the mini-version is just one beef patty and one slice of cheese and still feeds 2, while the regular portion is exponentially larger and has 2 patties + 2 slices of cheese).

Burgers are made using Maui Cattle Co. grass fed beef and served on a toasted brioche bun.

A few of the criteria that leads to a good burger rating (for me personally) include: a toasted (not dry) bun, perfectly seasoned patty that is moist and juicy, freshly cut tomatoes that are not over ripe and crisp lettuce that adds freshness and texture. I usually add ketchup, if it needs it, but the amazing Fatt Chicks secret sauce is all you need in life and may be a combination of ketchup, thousand island dressing, garlic aioli and/or mustard — I am literally guessing here since I have no clue what is in it and they wouldn’t tell me.

“As of now we are in transition with our hours at this time, we will be opening up for dinner soon with hopes to offer nightly dinner specials other than our burgers. It’s really great to be back [at Wailuku First Fridays] where we first started!”
