I went here mainly because this place had great TripAdvisor reviews. It's a pretty small restaurant which was pretty empty when we got there. It was cool outside but initially when we walked in, it was super hot inside. Decor is nothing special which is...More

Only the best burgers ever. I could end this review here, but I still have 30 more words to say so: go grab a burger and you'll see!

We brought our high school girl scout troop for lunch! The burgers were yummy and the shakes were delicious! We also had onion rings. The girls had a blast and the adults enjoyed each other and the food!

Really nice place to visit we actually stumbled across it as a last resort because shake shack was too busy. All staff were lovely, although one in particular stood out and went out his way to ensure we were looked after and happy with everything....More

Island Burgers and Shakes have the best fries ever! Like, ever!! I fear that I will never be able to enjoy fries again after having theirs. The burger was amazing too, but the fries, I'm telling you! Also, the staff was very friendly. I forgot...More

It's a bit on the pricy side. I think it was a 15-18$USD burger with a half order of fries for $4 and a chocolate malt for $6-8? I believe my bill for one person was $20-25 range.

A West Coast-style, French-fryless burger shack that attracts a deservedly cultish following.
