Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 September 2016

Although I've seen several of the Burger Island restaurants
around the Dallas area for sometime, I'd never heard anyone
say anything about them - good or bad. After seeing a good
deal on Groupon I thought I'd give them a try. The Groupon
was good for the one in Richardson, and while it's location is
some twelve miles from my home, I thought I'd pay them a visit
anyway. I enjoy trying out new bars and restaurants.

The Richardson Burger Island is located about a half-mile west of
US-75 in a strip shopping center. You can definitely say it isn't
upscale, and in fact, is more of a hole-in-the-wall place. This
really isn't a "knock," because some of the best food places I've
ever been to could be classified as holes-in-the-wall. I care more
about the food in restaurants than I do about the ambiance.

The menu for Burger Island is extensive and is reasonably priced,
especially their lunch special Monday - Friday from 11am to 2pm.
They have just about every type of burger you can think of, with
over 20 on their menu. And, if you don't see one you'd like, you
can build your own. They also offer other sandwiches from
Phillys, various chicken sandwiches, chicken fried steak, to subs
and BLTs. My wife and I had the Jungle Burger and the Blue
Bacon Cheeseburger, both of which were big, juicy, and very
messy. There is also an array of appetizers and sides to chose
from. The seasoned fries that we got were tasty and they come
in a basket that can feed two or three for $2.75. I also got a large
dinner salad to share which was only $2.95. The only thing they
didn't have was lemon for the tea.

Other than the name, the only thing "tropical" about Burger Island
is a few pictures on the wall and a large colorful mural in the back
by the restrooms. The service is all business - no friendly
greeting or personal chatter. And, while the food was good, the
interior of the restaurant was cluttered and somewhat messy, with
the trash containers by the drink machine and in the restroom
running over. Also, several tables still hadn't been cleaned off
from previous customers and remained cluttered the 45 minutes
or so that we were there, even though most of the time we were
the only diners in the place. The restaurant wasn't dirty, but
needs some work to make it appear more inviting to customers.

Overall, there is nothing particularly fantastic about Burger Island,
and I wouldn't go out of my way again to eat there, but it's still
worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood or live close by.

Just visited Burger Island 2 Richardson. Can't say enough good things about this location. Blue Cheese Bacon Burger, Hawaiian Burger and Double Jungle Burger were fantastic. Customer Service was pleasant and accommodating. We would definitely return for more huge burgers and other expansive menu items.

I've had the mushroom swiss. ..but I ask them to add avocado and they will... also the kids order of chicken strip is enough for an army. I also get avocado and cheese on my chicken strips.

In fact, they never even act like I'm crazy if I ask for mushrooms on chicken strips. What I'm saying is they are good AND flexible!!

The burgers are fresh - not frozen - you can tell because you can see them being prepared and fried on the grill....you hear the slap, slap of the spatulas as the burgers are coaxed to perfection. I love the guacamole burger. Get there early for lunch - usually a line because of the great value.....dinner is not usually crowded.
