I travel a lot. I search for good/great hamburger joints. Island Burgers and Shakes popped up on several top lists. All in all, an OK place. But I cannot understand why they are rated so high. Don’t get me wrong - the burgers are fine...More

Nice atmosphere, menu had a large choice of burgers and they didn’t disappoint. Finished off the meal with a vanilla shake and it was really thick. Food and drinks well priced for NYC - would visit again.

Standard burgers no special menu. Place required cleaning and more attention for the served dishes. Not a must if you can get other alternative.

We visit NYC twice a year and try different restaurants for dinner each time. There are so many well reviewed places to choose from that it makes it difficult to revisit a place unless you really love it. Island Burger in the Hell's Kitchen area,...More

The shakes were great and the burgers were also very good. I didn't particularly care for my patty melt but that was due to a personal preference of having the bread grilled and they basically toasted the bread. The rest was very good and the...More

I went here mainly because this place had great TripAdvisor reviews. It's a pretty small restaurant which was pretty empty when we got there. It was cool outside but initially when we walked in, it was super hot inside. Decor is nothing special which is...More

It's a bit on the pricy side. I think it was a 15-18$USD burger with a half order of fries for $4 and a chocolate malt for $6-8? I believe my bill for one person was $20-25 range.

A West Coast-style, French-fryless burger shack that attracts a deservedly cultish following.
