“GOOD BURGERS”

We like the interior design of the Islands Restaurant. Plenty of surf and beach related items and videos.

They offer a wide variety of sandwich items with the burgers being the most plentiful. The sandwiches are well prepared and flavorful.

We really enjoy the all you want french fries. They are hot and tasty. The onion rings are just average.

Forget your diet and enjoy a meal at Islands. Between the TVs, the abundance of kids, the music and the food ... you really can't not have a good time.
Beware, however, if you are looking for a place to have a quiet conversation ... this is not the place.
It is the place, however, to enjoy really good hamburgers and freshly made french fries and onion rings. We had the Bleunami Burger ($10.49) with fries, and the Moa kai (Tuna, $8.99) with onion rings ... both really excellent.
Islands is doing a smart thing ... their burgers and sandwiches now come with complimentary sides ... fries, onion rings, garden salad, Caesar salad, steamed veggies ... or for an additional $1.49, sweet potato fries ... and they will leave off the bun (white or wheat) and do a lettuce wrap if you request that.
Our waitperson was excellent ... kept the iced tea glasses filled and asked if we wanted 'refills' on the endless fries ... we did ...
A fun place ... good food, too.

This is a restaurant chain, as such, they all look the same, sort of like the Tiki Room at Disneyland without the animotronics. They sell "island" named hamburgers, which are average, as are the fries. They are over priced but do have lunch specials that make it more wallet friendly. You go not so much for the food but for the "island" atmosphere, little kids like it. Would like it better if they would lower their prices and quit running the same surfing videos day after day after day.

Was really looking forward o a great burger in a cute island atmosphere, The calorie count on everything on the menu really halted my appetite! Ouch, this food should come with an aspirin to prevent a heart attack. Sorry.

What can you say about a place that has a surfing motif? Kowabunga Dude!! The coldest beers in town, the best burgers & fantastic salads topped off with great service.....what more could you ask for?
