One of the highlights of the 40th Anniversary celebration is that Islands brought back their Fresh Watermelon Margarita. This is the end all, when it comes to this classic cocktail as it is perfectly balanced, slightly sweet with a hint of lime juice and Sauza Hacienda Silver Tequila that really packs a punch, but it is the fresh watermelon that really shines through and makes this a refreshingly, unique cocktail. Islands also paired with Karl Strauss to produce a sunny blonde ale that you are only going to find at Islands. A great summertime beer that pairs perfectly with any beer on the menu.
Islands is known for their burgers and you can’t go wrong with any selection and running the gamut of trying to make your way through each one is a great reason to keep coming back to Islands. But of course they had to bring out something special for this occasion and they certainly did that by adding the Heat Wave Burger to the menu. Don’t worry if you don’t like spicy, the Heat portion of the burger is more flavorful than hot as you are introduced to a combination of green chilies and spicy mayo that brings this amazing burger to life.
The Islands menu is far more diverse than just unique burger after unique burger, they have something for everyone. If they are not specifically known for their tortilla soup, Islands should be. You can search far and wide and not find a better version as the ingredient are plentiful and you are getting chicken, avocado and vegetables in every flavorful bite you take. Islands does live up to their name with many Hawaiian flavors throughout the menu, such as Kalua pork or fish tacos, the Toucan sandwich which combines pineapple, teriyaki sauce and swiss cheese to along with a grilled chicken breast. What you are going to find throughout the menu is fresh ingredients and flavor combinations that will wow you regardless of what your order.
The 40th Anniversary celebration is an enticing reason to visit Islands, but there is a reason Islands has been around this long and that is what will keep you coming back.
