First, the Place Smells like Sewage! And the Counter people were not very friendly and actually acted as IF they did not care if we ate there or Not! Have had the Burgers there in the Past and they have been decent.

Literally the worst burger I have ever had. Veggies were old and mushy and the patty was greasy and tasteless. They only gave me half an order of tater tots that were soggy and cold. You would be better off eating at McDonalds.

I recently visited Burger Island while on a business trip to Garland. The restaurant is a bit dated. I ordered the cheeseburger combo. The burger was ok, but the fries were under cooked to my liking. Not a bad place, but there are better options.

They aren’t the best but it’s something. If your near by why not give it a chance.. they are pretty good but nothing extraordinary. Burgers are all burgers. Not my favorite but it’ll do.

Simple little restaurant (NW Highway location), but has great burgers and fries! We got the lunch special, burger, fries, and a drink for $7.50. We search out burger places on Sundays and this one was a great find. The burgers are home style and the...fries have skin left on and just the right amount of seasoning.More

What can you say about a place you need to visit every week. Great lunch special burgers and the seasoned fries are wonderful. This is for the Buckingham/Garland Rd location

This is a dive with good burgers. Needs updating and kind of dirty but that is the definition of a dive. I would not drive along way to come here but if in the area it is a good burger and fresh cut fries. Don't...get the fried mushrooms. Not good.More
