Islands is nestled in between a bunch of chain restaurants (Olive Garden, and BJ’s) and craptastic restaurants (Agave) in Summerlin, across the street from the Red Rock casino. Despite it being a chain, I enjoy eating there. Although it’s been over a year in between visits for me. It’s hardly ever busy and the service has always been fast, friendly, and attentive. The burgers are actually pretty good, but still a step below gourmet burger places like Burger Bar, BLT, and LBS. The Hawaiian burger is delicious — both savory and sweet from the juicy beef patty, the grilled pineapple and teriyaki sauce. Their fries are cut fresh and are large and crispy. At around $8 a burger it isn’t cheap, but they have a good variety of burgers to choose from (and their tacos aren’t bad either).
