Island Burgers & Shakes
Posted by William on 12/29/2005
So I live in Hells Kitchen and love this little spot. Burgers are great, especially many of hte exotic ones that are blackened and often very spicy. I got one called the Napalm one time and my mouth was on fire for at least a half an hour. But enough about that....the malts are the reason that I go. I am addicted to them, and now have many of my co-workers addicted as well. They really are heaven in a glass and blow away the milk shakes. But be forewarned, they are a little heavy, so don't drink it too fast or you will make yourself sick as a dog. The place gets my vote any day of the week. They just need to open a bigger space to compete with the new Vnyl in the neighborhood.

The burgers were okay,...but dwarfed by the bun. The meat seemed to be of a quality cut, but that doesn't always translate to a good (juicy) burger. No fries...a big downer. Thumbs up for the guacamole and the black and white shake though. Service was poor at best. I visited off hours, and had to repeatedly ask for utensils and water. Shabby service. Decor more suitable for a trippy lounge.

I haven't had a great burger like this in years! The Cowboy burger was delicious...the fried onions were fresh just how i like them..and i'm starting to prefer a baked potato than fries! Can't wait to go back.

Burgers here are great. You can tell they they're made fresh. The place itself is prety small, making it primarily takeout for me.

I was disappointed in the burger and shake I ordered. The burger was small and relatively tasteless, and the buns were stale. The shake was soft serve in a cup, seriously, I'm pretty sure it was soft serve in a cup.

I've gotten the tijuana burger, the cheeseburger, and the basic churasco and I am in love with this place. You might as well order out since it's tiny and not much to look at, BUT, their ingredients are fresh, the bread is great, and the portions are large. My one suggestion is to ask them to cook the burger more than you'd like. If you like it medium, ask for well done, if you like it well done, ask for very well done. Give this spot a shot.

The best burgers and shakes in the city...even though it is very crowded and kind off uncomfortable to sit but it's all worth it..and one more thing that is good there the waitresses are hot!
