the scoop: If you’re driving the “back way” to Hana, you’ll pass this endearing little ranch store and grill. Stop and stretch your legs or sit a spell on the lanai, whose whimsical cowboy sculptures were carved by the late Maui artist Reems Mitchell. Livestock grazing nearby let you know your burger’s got the Maui Cattle Company brand. As with all great barbecues, the hand-formed patties sizzle over smoldering embers, taking on a smoky flavor before settling into a griddle-toasted Home Maid Bakery bun.
