This is a little hidden restaurant tucked back along Story. We drove by it the first time and turned around once we knew what to look for. We ended up going here after our first place fell through and thought they only offered canned sodas....There were free refills which made our young adults quite happy. The menu was diverse with choices you can't find anywhere else. As a person who likes onion rings, I found theirs to be top notch. The fries have the potato peeling on the side and there was plenty of them. Island Burger has more of a hometown feel as it is small , but perhaps not the most current in its aesthetic appeal. The staff was vey friendly and personal. The only reason for the mark down would be the wait my son had for his wings. Everyone else had their food for a bit before his order arrived.More

Messily perfect burger that hits the spot ever time! Above & beyond: I ran to pick up my order but forgot my card on my desk. The owner didn't skip a beat and said, "Don't worry about it; you can come back later to pay...because we don't close until later. Enjoy your lunch!" I don't know the owners personally, but from a customer standpoint, that experience was the cherry on top for me! Thanks for offering that to me and for always quelling my inner burger beast! :)More

Larger than average portions. Excellent fries. Everything is ala cart, so it gets expensive fast. Best burger in irving.

Very good burgers and many different ingredient choices to add. Fries are super good. They have other meal choices besides burgers. Also many side items. Just always end up with the burger and fries. Located right off highway 183 on Story Road in Irving, Texas

This is our go-to place in Irving for a hamburger. The hickory burger and the guacomole burger are delicious as well as the regular cheesburger and fries.

I really loved my beef salad. I was not happy when I found out there were mushrooms in my salad. I hate mushrooms and had to pick them out. The fries were good too. My friends all enjoyed their food too. It was really hot...in there though.More

Without a doubt, this is my favorite place for burgers. I and one of my Fire Department friends meet here every Wednesday night for burgers. Everything is homemade and fresh. Cooked the way you want. (Yes they do make an occasional mistake but are glad...to fix it.) The fries are so good and so many that I can't eat them all. The burger is juicy, dripping really. The fries are amazing and the price is great. It only takes about 5 minutes to get your order. It is an old timey burger joint, don't change a thing.More

I really appreciate the hole-in-the-wall feel to the place. I ordered the double cheeseburger and added some bacon, of course. The burger was big (about 1lb), and pretty good, not great. It lacked a little bit of seasoning and the bun was not my favorite....It held up well, but did nothing when it comes to flavor. I'd probably try somewhere else if I find myself in the area again.More

Stopped by for lunch based upon previous TripAdvisor reviews. Had my standard cheeseburger with grilled onions and ketchup. Toasted hamburger bun with a 1/2 pound burger. It was cooked to medium well but it was just another quick food burger. Nothing to rave about but...better then the fast food places. Fries were good but a little salty. There are way better burger joints in the metroplex but this wasn't a bad lunch option.More

This is the second time I've gotten a burger from here, I'm also their foodservice delivery driver so I get to see how it's made, kitchen cleanliness and the owners/managers are nice too. Good home style burger from never frozen ground beef, hand patties too....Real fries cut straight from the potato. It's a hole in the wall place but you won't be disappointed.More

Great burgers and fries every time. It's not too far from my office so my coworkers and I go at times when we're in town and not on diets! I've been several times, usually with a few people from work and none of us have...ever had a burger there that wasn't awesome. The seasoning is good, fresh cut fries are a nice touch, and the toppings are plentiful and always fresh. It is definitely a hole in the wall, so don't go there if you need to have an ambiance experience. Do go there if you can look past the decor and want to have a great burger experience. I also give it a great thumbs up for being a family owned and operated business.More

The hamburgers are good but the fries are even better - homemade and not frozen. Good place for a good price.
