“Best burgers around!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

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.

“Our famliy eats here at least once a week.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

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 have a few faves but some seem to be carrying a chip on their shoulder. Owners are always friendly and seem glad we came by.
Only down note is that the once HUGE portions seems to be shrinking :( and the fixings seem to be less on the burgers. Hope our family doesn't loose our burger joint. This is one of the few places in Rowlett, Texas that serves decent food.

“Great big burger and a mountain of fries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

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 sandwiches as well. They also have sweet potato fries with ranch dressing, yum. Great service. Great guy named Beau if you get him. Nice guy that's very cool with my young boys :)
