When Wilfred and Mary Kawamura (W&M) created their secret barbecue sauce in 1940, I don't think they realized that their hamburger stand which was originally located on Nuuanu Avenue would become a Hawaii institution and winner of many local Burger Awards.  Back then the burgers sold for 19 cents and people lined up to enjoy them.  W&M moved to its current home on Waialae Avenue in 1980 and is now owned by Walt and Joy Kunimitsu who guard the secret sauce recipe that is only known to a few.  W&M Burgers is closed Monday and Tuesday.  They have limited hours the days they are open so there is usually a line when you arrive.  The biggest challenge to enjoying a W&M Burger is getting in and out of the parking lot.  With only about eight parking stalls and one way in and out this place is easily passed up by motorists who do not want to deal with the parking.  I cannot imagine how long the line would be if there were ample parking.  At W&M, you order at the window and are given a number.  Be prepared to wait.  After you order step aside because there is only one ordering window and one pick up window.  The lady behind the counter was super sweet and recognized my daughter from the Fujitsu commercials.  "Look" she yelled to the entire staff.  "The Fujitsu girl is here".  We ordered the Royal Cheeseburger ($4.00).  This is basically a Teriyaki Burger with lettuce, tomato, onion, relish, mayo and ketchup.  Not a bad burger.  It is a bit thin and filled with Teriyaki taste.  Really cannot taste the meat.  I liked the fresh lettuce, tomato and onion.  The entire family loved the French Fries ($2.10).  Thin, crisp and tasty!  This is mostly a takeout place as there is absolutely no seating.  There is a small section where you can stand and eat on a counter.
