The only reason I went back was because I was given a gift card to use here. If you value your money, this is not a good place to get someone a gift card. It is only good for one month to begin with and the part of the card that tells you that is conveniently covered by a flap in their envelope. I have never written a bad review before. Hope this helps.

I recommend the burgers! Very delicious! Also, if you are with your family the "endless chips with salsa" are great to get because when you run out, they keep coming. The prices for the food are very reasonable, great atmosphere, and great service. Inside the restaurant you feel like you are in the islands which makes your experience there fun and relaxing. I have eaten there several times now and I love it and will keep coming back. Great for the whole family and enjoyable for everyone.

I didn't realize this was a chain resturant. The food choices were limited. The burgers weren't as impressive as I would have hoped, considering this is a "burger" place. The decorations were fun! Definitely a tropical theme. We ordered some of their tropical drinks to fit in, but were slightly disappointed in those too. Very weak, watered down. The food was ok. Service ok. I'd probably only go again for the atmosphere, and sneak in my own mini-bottles.

I've never really been a big fan of Islands and this location proves why. Their burgers are dry and we've been left waiting around for service for inordinate amounts of time on more than one occasion. With so many other, better places to get a burger; I don't really see a need for a sit-down restaurant for such.

Islands is one of the few off campus options for UCSD students without car transportation, and I have a lot of fond memories from freshman year there. It has many more non beef options than any other burger place I know, and everything I've tried on their menu is delicious. The prices are a bit higher than normal for burgers but worthwhile for their large size, all the fixings, and great taste. They also have my favourite version of oriental chicken salad and a great deal on a giant plate of tasty fries. The island atmosphere is also quite fun, and service has always been excellent.

PROS: Fun island atmosphere, giant delicious burgers
CONS: Be prepared for a long wait during peak hours

Tropical-themed burger joint is also famous for fresh-cut fries and fruity cocktails.
