At Island Burgers, the décor is tropical and the menu is full of variations on Grade-A beef burgers, like the "Hawaiian" with pineapple and teriyaki sauce, and the "Maui" slathered in guacamole. Any burger can be prepared with a tasty veggie patty containing zero percent cow, so you'll feel safely camouflaged among the carnivores, and only your server will know your self-righteous place on the food chain. Entrées range from $5.19 to $8.45, and the "Gremmie" menu for children 12 and under has meals priced from $3.69 to $4.49, including fries and a drink. See the website for additional locations.
