The aptly named burger, which is in the spotlight during a warm July week, features "grilled serrano chilies, grilled green chilies, melted pepper jack cheese, and spicy mayo for an extra kick." Oh yes: It's a vintage favorite straight from 1982, if you're experiencing a flavorful flashback.
And fries? Oh yeah: Those are on the plate, too.
A 40th anniversary is a huge thing, and there are other celebratory doings afoot throughout the summer of '22, like "throwback uniforms," giveaways on social media (those will run for 40 days), and a special Islands Sunny Blonde Ale.
And there's a watermelon margarita, in honor of National Watermelon Month, which lasts all July long. It arrives in a 40th anniversary glass, adding to the festive spirit.
Started by Tony DeGrazier in May 1982, Islands has become known for its whimsical libations, decadent desserts like the popular Kona Pie, and its main and meaty offering: burgers, lots of burgers, all with island-inspired names and zesty condiment combinations.
