    The best good old fashion burger in Port A didn’t make your short or long list …… Best burger is at HARBOR LIGHTS GRILL (located on the side of Woody’s Sports Center on Cotter) … and their Fries are some of the best too…. that says a lot from me because I generally do not eat fries but I will eat a few of their fries!!!


    You can’t leave Jay’s Seafood and Spaghetti Works off the Burger list. They always have fresh buns and their bacon, avocado, egg cheeseburger is probably the best burger on the island.
