“Island Girl & onion rings”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

This place is a tiny place with no real eating space, except a patio, or bathrooms. The best way to do it is to call in your order and pick it up since the wait can be 30-45 minutes. The Island Girl is a burger with pineapple, Swiss cheese and teriyaki sauce and is delish! Their onion rings are the best I've had, fries are so-so though. Service can be hit or miss. Sometimes it's great, sometimes they act like they would rather be serving only locals and not dumb tourists. Either way, it's a great place to stop after a day on the beach!

“OMB!!! (Oh my burger)”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

The bomb diggity bomb of burgers. It is flavorful, it is fresh, it is juicy and unique....it's the island girl burger at Duane's!!!!! This features teriyaki, pineapple, & swiss. The teriyaki burger is the most popular, I got that one, too. The onion rings are crispy perfection.
It's pretty much a stand in the middle of the highway. Don't expect frills or friendly service....nor a bathroom. DO expect one of the most gratifying burger experiences of your life. FREAKIN YUM!!!!!

“Reasonable price, okay food”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Duane's was recommended by an employee at a local attraction. We stopped for lunch and had an average meal. The burgers were just okay and the fries were a little soggy. The teriyaki burger was better than average but not spectacular. I would eat there again if I was in the area and hungry but wouldn't make a special trip.

“Worth the wait!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

The burgers live up to their reputation on the island as the best. They are generous with the toppings and the burgers are charred to perfection. We had Duane's special and the Local Girl. The marionberry milk shake was also super-tasty. The rumor is true that you will wait a long time at this place even if it doesn't look too busy. Check out their menu online and call your order if you you can to avoid the 20-30 minute wait.

“Good, but not like I remember”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

Friendly staff, good burgers, fries and onion rings.
Although I lost my appetite when the chef came out in a filthy apron. Looks exactly the same after stopping by 20 years ago. Great if you are driving by, but definitely wouldn't drive from the south end for a burger here. Good but had better.
