Maui Bike Tours
Johnny B’s Restaurant is Mountain Riders new lunch spot located in Paia Maui. This place is super ono….or tasty as the Hawaiians say!
The burgers come with an assortment of add-on toppings including teriyaki sauce, grilled pineapple and sautéed mushrooms at a small additional cost. The standard condiments including ketchup, lettuce, mayo and pickle and a variety of other toppings.
Buns are made fresh by Maui’s Komoda Bakery. The beef is island raised, all natural – no hormones or antibiotics.
We also also liked the large side order of hand-cut spicy volcano fries ($5.49), cooked in cholesterol-free peanut oil. The spices come from Maui Volcano Spice Co. in Makawao.
Owners Tom and Pam Leary are a hands-on pair and their new restaurant is a family affair. Their son Chris was staffing the order window and daughter Sarah, a new mom back East, is expected to follow in the not-too-distant future. Their concept was influenced by two burger chains popular on the mainland: In-N- Out and Five Guys.
These days, they observed, people have less money to spend on eating out. They want old favorites made in a healthier and more flavorful way.
That’s what Johnny B’s offers: a simple, familiar, limited menu, done with gourmet quality ingredient. “Fresh never frozen,” said Tom.“Local produce,” said Pam. “All these little details that contribute to the way the food tastes.”
