As August comes to an end, I feel a little sense of loss because August represents long summer days at the beach and enjoying the day with friends. But the sense of loss did not last long, as I enjoyed a tasty celebration of summer at one of my favorite orange county eateries.
Recently, after one such summer day, I had a chance to attend a media tasting celebration for Islands Restaurants. Islands Fine Burgers and Drinks restaurants are a great family favorite and they are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year in a big way.
Islands Fine Burgers and Drinks is a burger restaurant that specializes in gourmet burgers and beer, fresh cut fries, tropical drinks and great happy hour deals. Their restaurants are always fun and casual.
We start3ed our meal with these tasty Honey Sriracha Wings. These delicious chicken wings come with a nice aioli dip and are baked with a tasty honey sriracha marinade. They were nothing short of amazing.
Next, I tried their limited-edition Waimea Burger. is a freshly grilled burger topped with Kalua pork, grilled pineapple rings, Swiss cheese, and caramelized onions. All of which is smothered in a tangy, slightly sweet, teriyaki sauce.
This paired well with the special brew, Islands Golden Ale. Exclusively handcrafted by Karl Strauss Brewing Company, This locally crafted ale was the perfect match for my burger.
This meal is perfect for a summer evening. If you are looking for a great meal with a cold brew, check it out at your local Islands.
