There are burgers, and then there are 50s burgers

Date Posted: 2007-09-27

The perfect burger uses 100% pure, fresh beef that’s never been frozen, and has no fillers.

The perfect burger, says Hayashi Oshiro, owner of the 50's Cafe in Koza, is grilled to order, covered with melted cheese, then put on a butter flavored oil toasted bun, piled high with hand leafed lettuce, fresh sliced onion, pickles and tomato, and served up piping hot.

The Koza Burger is Oshiro’s most popular, with 2/3 pounds of meat filling the bun. The 50’s Café jumbo burger is also 2/3 pound, and adds savory bacon to the burger.

Oshiro, an Okinawan California transplant, knows down home American cooking, and serves it up daily except Mondays at the 50’s Café on Route 330 across from the Koza Music Town complex. Stepping into the 50’s Café is déjà vu, a quick step back into 50’s Americana. The décor is 50’s, and so is the music. Nostalgia and memories come flooding back as customers sit and enjoy a meal.

The 50’s Café has incorporated a touch of California’s Hispanic dishes with tacos and chili dogs, and a trademarked dish Oshiro developed. Burrito rice is a specialty with a taste simply out of this Okinawan world. Pure minced ground beef, onion, tomato and chile cook up into a spicy, full-bodied burrito rice dish, accented by a combination of cheeses.

“If you like curried rice,” says Oshiro, “you’ll fall in love with our Burrito Rice”. He’s making the 50’s Café the best burger joint on Okinawa. The 50’s Café is open for lunch, or for dinner before a stroll down Gate 2 Street. Parking’s available nearby, and service is fast and efficient.

“Once you’ve been here,” Hayashi Oshiro and his wife smile, “you’ll be back. Many already have, and the welcome mat is always out.”
