Islands is a unique experience. It’s like you’re in a thatched hut with surfing and sailing videos on TV. But we’re in a desert! As for the meal — fabulous burger, average fries, awful price. Add those ingredients together and you get that wimpy rating. Mind you, this is just our take, so you may well have an epic time. Go for it, but bring a big appetite and a full wallet. You certainly are not cheated at Islands in terms of the entire meal — it’s substantial to say the least. We loved the burger, as good as it gets. But that price is outrageous! Be reasonable, please! You shouldn’t have to spend more than $10 for a quality burger. When the price goes down, our rating goes up.
