Lunch!

We had a excellent, attentive waitress. She was very helpful explaining the items on the menu and substitutions we requested. The food was very good and enjoyed the fun atmosphere.

For a chain restaurant, Islands (Burbank) is surprisingly good!! The staff was outstanding and accommodating and the manager came over to check to make sure everything was excellent (which it was). Tacos are great, as is the chili, as is the tortilla soup!!!! Great staff, great management, great food!!! We'll be back!!!!

The staff is always pleasant and attentive - and the food is always delicious and comforting. I love the endless bowl of tortilla soup, the fries, all the burgers and the tacos. And the passion iced tea is pretty darn tasty. The prices are reasonable, too,

I love this location as the staff is very friendly, and always remembers return guests (such as myself). The bar is never too loud to have a conversation with friends, and the clientele is always low-key, something that is hard to find in Burbank. My only critique is of Islands as a chain, and that is the limited scope of... More

We went to here because my kid thought it looked, from the outside, like the Tiki Room at Disneyland. Well, it kinda has that vibe, and they do have fake parrots hanging in all the corners, but It's more of a surfer-themed family chain. It was close to the movie theater so it made for a good munch spot, and... More

I hope Islands will always be here. No skimpy fast burgers here, just heart stopping great tasting gems that you don't forget very easily.

My family and I had a great time and very good food. Fries were very good. Prices were reasonable and the 7 year old daughter liked the kids menu. We will go back.

I wish my kids did not ask to go here. The burgers and tacos are never good, more often than not order is wrong and hour wait even on a Tuesday afternoon. For adult burger fries are not included rather you must order basket with enough fries for 3.
