One of the best burgers is served on this island

I like burgers but I don’t crave it all the time. I actually like chicken burgers more than the classic beef burger. I rarely enjoy a beef burger unless it’s really good. But I will never forget one delicious burger I had while on an island. Last December, I was on a short three-day trip…
