Good food, service...meh.

We've had take out from here several times. It's really good. Burgers are big enough for two. Fries are hand cut. I love the guacamole burger. The one time we tried to eat in the restaurant was a disaster. Got seated and drinks from a hostess. Waited over 20 minutes for someone just to take our... read more

Burger island is a perfect spot for a quick, no frills, hamburger. To make it even better, their burgers are actually quite good. One thing they have is variety, there are numerous combinations of burgers that one can order including a monster burger with bacon, double cheese, lots of lettuce and tomato, and two half pound slabs of ground beef....

Really good size 1/2 lb burgers on a fresh bun. Wait staff very friendly and always there to serve you. Helpful hint: you can add other ingredients to create your own custom burger!

Every time I want a good burger, I think of Burger Island first! All of their menu choices are great--love the cheese and chicken quesadillas, love their mushroom Swiss burgers, enjoy their salads, even if they are a little greasy. Their kids' menu is good as well. The seasoned fries are enormous and can feed a person on their own.... More

Good food, friendly staff and not very expensive at all. If you do not have a big appetite, I would suggest splitting the buger since they are 1/2lb. in size. Also add a side of Texas toothpicks and you will be set for a great meal.

Very casual, family dining... Walk in, sit where you like, someone friendly will come take your drink order, then your burger order. Not to long of a wait for big burgers made to order, usually my spouse and I split one. You can also split the order and get half of each of fries, tots or sweet potato fries with... More

We eat here once every few weeks and love it. The burgers are big and juicy. The quesadillas are great also. This is my favorite burger joint.

I get the bacon cheese burger and hubby gets the chili cheese burger. They are served piping hot and so flavorful! Get the burger baskets for only $2 more. It includes the burger, french fries or onion rings or half and half and a drink. sooo yummy! I highly recommend. They also have an awesome kids menu.

Not all Burger Island's are created equal. With that said this one is a "good" one. Hamburgers are huge and portions are more than adequate. Hubby loves the big burgers and kiddos the grilled cheese sandwiches. Fries, tots and onion rings are yummy. Friendly staff is like a box of chocolate, never know what you are going to get. We...

Eat here about once a week in the evening for dinner. They pack a mean burger at this place! HUGE is the word. They do not skimp on the food amount so you get a good bang for your buck at this place. They also offer a good menu of different things as well. I love the Philly cheese steak... More
