Islands Burgers: Kid Friendly and Parent Friendly Restaurant + Gift Card #Giveaway

Last week, when we visited a city we were not so familiar with, the hubby brought us to an Italian restaurant that was said to be a hole in the wall but ended up being a fine dining restaurant. The food took forever to arrived and it was a brutal 2 hours trying to keep the kids entertained and behave so we don't disturb other diners.

Between a picky eater and a toddler who can't sit still, we have to choose wisely on which restaurant to eat at. So back to our short list of places we can dine at as a family - Islands Burgers!!!

Islands offers a wide array of kids' menu with healthy sides, yummy burgers and salads, fun drink options for me, TVs all around so the hubby doesn't miss out on basketball and a yummy dessert to end it all. What more can you ask more.

We don't really need a date night. What we really need right now is a date with the kids. They are growing so fast and we want to spend as much time with them as much as we can. Although I also enjoyed a margarita while we dined at Islands. Win win. I guess Islands is not only kid friendly, they are also parent friendly. LOL.

The kids worked on their activity sheets while I perused through Islands menu. The toddler will actually peeled off the paper cover of her crayons (a fave hobby of hers). We have a box full of crayons without covers on them at home. LOL.

I just found out that Islands have partnered with Crayon Collection to donate used crayons from all 55 of their locations to lower income schools so now I know where to bring our crayons.

Since partnering with the program in 2011, Islands has donated more than one million crayons annually to local elementary schools throughout the southwest U.S.

I cannot say that my kids are the healthiest eater, we are working on that. But we do try to give them a balance so we put in fruits at every meal. Islands have apples and pineapples with dip that the kids loved but they also have vegetables and salads as sides and even a Jr. Grilled Chicken Sandwich as a main entree option. Check out the Gremmie Menu above.

For the parents, a margarita and lava flow to start the weekend! Yum! 

Islands got something new on their menu as well, Sriracha Smack Burger. Spicy!!! I had a few bites of it but the hubby finished it all. Next time we'd have to order more sweet potato fries as well coz' the kids devoured those.

I would typically order Islands Kilauea Burger (one of my 3 fave burgers ever) but opted to order their Wiqui Waqui BBQ Chicken Salad this time for a change. It's a must order. Grilled & chilled chicken breast, cheddar & jack cheeses, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion & jicama, tossed w/ranch dressing & topped w/tortilla strips, bbq sauce & scallions.

For parents, Islands is perfect because their booth seat has a high backrest so we can contain all the rowdiness within our dining space. I didn't realized it until I stood up that there were also kids in front and on our back.

The finale! A Kona Pie that got the kids closer to the table. It's a Mocha Almond Fudge Ice Cream & cookie crust topped w/chocolate fudge, whipped cream, roasted almonds & a cherry.

The hubby and I actually want to get a spinach dip as well but we know we're gonna get full, so we're like, do we do appetizer or dessert. Dessert it went, per kids request.
