Good place for lunch

Went here for early lunch and food was great and in and out pretty quickly. I had chicken sandwich, fries and iced tea. Tasted good and reasonably priced. I want to go back in evening to try some of their beer.

Chicken sandwich was the meal of the day for us. Wheat bun was fresh on the chicken sandwich but chicken seemed like it was boiled then threw across the grill to gain it's mark. Service was fine and friendly but the food was not the hype I remember of going to Islands.

We share a salad or order a lunch special--we're always served quickly and by friendly and fun wait staff. That's why we come EVERY WEEK!! Try the Wiki Waki Chicken Salad or China Coast salad--or come back at Happy Hour for half price sliders and $1.25 chips and salsa. Yum.

We go there sometimes, bottomless fries, BUT the amount of sodium will kill you very quickly, They have to change that! Prices not too bad, not on top of my list, I can taste the salt right now as I type this.

Burgers were excellent. Service was very friendly. The Northshore was a flour tortillas stuffed w/spicy chicken, cheddar, lettuce & tomatoes w/sides of salsa & ranchero beans. One of my better taco experiences in brea.

We met family at Islands for lunch. The food was outstanding. Burgers of all kinds for the burger lovers, and the chicken sandwich great too.

This Islands has never served me anything that wasn't very good. We love to go there on Sundays after church because they are always accomodating no mater how large our group is and we all always like our meal. The parking is difficult but just because it is a busy place

I love their burgers. I've never been disappointed coming to Islands, and MY HUSBAND WAS VERY IMPRESSED, which is saying a ton. He was very happy with his meal.
