This is my absolute favorite place to order burgers on the UWS!! GREAT burgers done to order (I always order Medium Rare and they never screw up). Excellent fries and Caesar salad too. Highly recommend!!

Excellent fries - burgers are great with a lot of flavor but VERY messy (which is not really a bad thing)

The food is decent enough but the delivery service is poor. Twice I cancelled my order after waiting an hour for my meal. Each time I was told about 40 minutes, 60 minutes later still no burger. It doesn't take that long to prepare a burger and fries. I don't order from Island any more.

Really great UWS burger and shake place. Loved in in Hell's Kitchen and hope it sticks around on the UWS.

My boyfriend and I go there regularly. The burgers are good most days, but the real reason I go is for the fajitas. They are delicious! The Chili is also one of our favourites.

I have had their burger at the 9th Ave location and though not blown away, the portion and variety made me go back. I came to 80 ST for a calorie splurge. I picked the Princess Grace burger, topped with boursin cheese, ham, onions, peppers and mushrooms. It looked lovely but when I bit into it....tasteless. The beef was dry and aerated and tasteless. The mushrooms and peppers were out of a can and tasteless. The bread was like cardboard. They may have forgotten to put on the cheese cause I have no memory of any cheesy flavoring and the ham was a super thin piece of the kind of ham that come in one of those plastic zip lock packages for $1.29 in the supermarket. Maybe the salt burn from the ham dulled my taste buds but the burger on the whole was tasteless. I was so amazed at this feat that at one point I picked apart and tasted each component of the burger individually and was even more surprised to confirm that there was no flavor in any one item. The french fries (not included in the price of the burger) were also off...coated with some kind of crunchy floury coating (like frozen supermarket fries) the biggest impression I got from them was salt flavor. The place itself is nice, clean and the wait staff pleasant...the food is TASTELESS! DON'T GO!
