If we were stranded on a desert island, the meal we’d likely be left longing for is, without a doubt, a nice juicy burger. With that in mind, Burger Island in Richardson seems appropriately named, despite its lack of proximity to any major bodies of water. Hidden in a strip mall behind a Taco Bell, this small counter-service spot offers burgers, fries and shakes, plus palm trees painted on the walls for, er, ambiance. Half-pound burgers are the main attraction. Choose your own toppings from a small list of gut-busting options like chili, guacamole, grilled onions and bacon, or go for one of the house specialties like the Hickory Burger or the Pizza Cheeseburger. True adventure-seekers can opt for the Jungle Burger, which piles on practically every topping in the house. If french fries just won’t do, there’s a ton of other fried options like pickles, mushrooms and stuffed jalapeños.
