“YUM-YUM”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Very good place to have a burger. They have a variety of but all good old fashion thick burgers with a nice tall glass of passion fruit tea. You just can't beat that after a full day of attending a NASCAR race!! They are a bit pricey and the wait is quite long but it's worth it once you get your food.

“Decent tacos, but no longer carry ahi poke (boooo!)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

The Islands offers burgers and tacos with island flavours, however it seems they discontinued their ahi poke and salmon poke too. So I had some North Shore tacos, which were OK. Service was organized and quick and friendly. Hubbie had chicken fingers, which were decent size platter. We both had typical Mai Tais. Good for quick eat in faux Hawaiian motif.

“Great burgers and atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Great selection of burgers to choose from as well as other dishes. The non-meat eater in our party had the mahi mahi fish taco and really enjoyed it. Hand-cut fries were very good. Great surfer décor and atmosphere. Service could have been better.

“Great sandwiches!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

My friend and I stopped by Islands in Palm Desert totally by accident and very glad we made a wrong turn! The sandwiches were very delicious as were the fries and onion rings. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful as well.

“Step into the feeling of the tropical islands and out of the desert here, inviting fun and delicious.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

On arriving, a sweet young lady opened the door for us, and greeted us with a huge welcoming smile.
Service good, as expected food sufficient. Did not try drinks but looked delicious!
