Message from the Business

A West Coast-style, french fry-less burger shack that attracts a deservedly cultish following.
Island Burgers and Shakes serves hamburgers, sandwiches, salads and more. The chicken churasco, a grilled chicken breast sandwich has become a favorite. We make them over 40 different ways using only the freshest chicken breast, produce, homemade sauces, and six different kinds of locally baked breads. Our hamburgers are worth a try as well. We start with over a half-pound of the freshest, specially-blended prime beef, offer seven kinds of great cheeses, the city's best tomatoes and produce, and six different locally-baked breads. All our fantastic sauces are made here.

This place is way overrated! The burgers, dressing and cheese were tasteless! The only thing that had flavor was the bacon and it was overdone. I had my burger on sourdough and the bread fell apart - a horrible option to... (more)

I love love love Island Burger. I order delivery from they practically once a week. I always get the South of the Border burger, but their salads and shakes are amazing also. And I love that I can order online, and the... (more)

Someone recommended Island Burger to us, as it is hard to find a great hamburger. We tried it and liked it very much. The burgers are charred nicely on the outside and med. rare on inside (that is how I ordered it).... (more)

Quaint Burger joint in a clean neighborhood. A must-do for any burger-lover when in NYC. A great menu with decent prices! Burgers were a bit thick, but still cooked just perfect. I have never seen so many choices for... (more)

Island Recipe? The place was cramped, but that was expected from what I read. A good # of combinations on the menu and the milkshake was excellent - definitely shook off the summer heat. As for the burger, it was well... (more)

While the service isn't great the food makes up for it. I always bring friends when they're in town. EVERYONE loves the place. (more)

I know where my bathing suit body went - it was left on Ninth Avenue after one too many black & whites. They are the crowning glory of Island Burger for me. As far as food is concerned, you can order just about anything you... (more)

I'm determined to get it right here, even if I have to go back 100 times. This is by far the biggest menu I've seen with variations of pretty much the same thing: hamburger and chicken sandwich. You can get them... (more)

Island serves a SERIOUSLY GREAT hamburger. I've had take out from there 4 times now since I first stopped by two weeks ago (always the "people's choice" burger) and it's been better than perfect each time. The service... (more)
