Good burgers and fries AS USUAL! Drinks always cost more than the food! We always sit in the bar area as sports are on the TVs

The people are good… The building is good… The atmosphere is good… The service is good… The food is good… And especially have the Hawaiian burger! Awesome! At lunchtime you get limitless fries and drinks… Very cool!

Island's is always consistent, exactly what I expected. The food, drinks and service always good. The fries delicious and hamburger juciy. When you're on the road it's always comforting to get what you expected to. Thanks Islands.

We use to have these in Phoenix, like a lot of other restaurant chains, they went away. Was looking for a place close to the Hilton Garden Inn which would still be open on a Sunday evening.
