Excellent find thanks to your rave reviews! Burgers were sensational with very imaginative combinations and served on a whole variety of breads, buns or pitta. Burger itself was absolutely delicious, really meaty no fat. Staff were great, cannot recommend too highly!

We ate here on our last night in NYC or I would have been more than once. My husband and I didn't speak while eating our meal till we both paused to say "this is f*€king amazing!" Genuinely good, fresh and unusual combinations of food which are delicious. I had a chicken and pesto sandwich, the pesto is out of... More

My husband and I recently had some delicious burgers and fries at Island Burgers in Mid-town. It was reasonably priced and we were happy with the unique selection of burgers. I would recommend trying the Island Saison to complement your burger. Would definitely go back for lunch again soon.

I had the Napalm burger, burnt the hell out of my buds, but I deserved it! My wife loved her burger, and the shakes are great. But one thing that I must say was amazing.... Their Fries!! OMG, my wife actually said that these were the best she's had, and she does not give those kinds of compliments out often.... More

I went here with a friend from out of town - another friend of mine recommended it and what a great choice! There are so many different variations from burgers with bbq sauce, a fried egg, bacon, etc. Whatever burger you got....it would be YUMMY!! The meat is awesome...lean, not too much fat, the bun is delicious. Overall, a great... More

The place is small.and we had our lunch at the bar. The atmosphere is nice and the hamburger very good. I had a radzel's hamburger. It was a hot one (but not too much) with French style bread and a very good rare hamburger, juicy and soft. The French fries were OK. The pils as well.

We visited the Island Burgers Upper West Side location at 422 Amsterdam Avenue for lunch last week. Had a very good, generous sized burger, some of the best onion rings I have ever eaten and had a very rich chocolate malt. Impossible to find malts in Canada nowadays, so the shake was a rare treat. Staff very friendly, as were... More
