Islands Fine Burgers & Drinks (also known as Islands) is a casual dining restaurant chain that specializes in hamburgers and specialty drinks, fries that are made fresh every day, with a tropical theme. Despite its hamburger and fries "specialty", various other types of food are offered.

Entrees such as tacos, chicken sandwiches, and multiple entree salads, are available, as well as appetizers, including cheddar fries, chips and salsa, spinach-artichoke dip, and a choice of two major desserts; a fudge brownie ice cream sundae known as the "Chocolate Lava," and a coffee ice cream mud pie, "Kona Pie." Islands is known for catering to the requests of its guests, and many changes to their menu have been made at customer suggestion. Examples include including a small order of Islands' fries with any burger (or chicken or tuna sandwich), offering low-calorie entrees to promote lighter eating, and personal-sized desserts.


The company is based in Carlsbad, California.[1] It does not franchise out locations.[2]


The company was founded in September 1982 by entrepreneur Tony DeGrazier in West Los Angeles and currently has more than 50 locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Hawaii.[3]
