Cheeseburgers in Paradise is a bar and burger/sandwich eatery, brightly colored and using a tropical theme. It features a lot of Jimmy Buffet tunes and has some nice outdoor seating. I became familiar with it when work meetings with vendors would be conducted here. Salesmen and sales engineers respond well to the place. They enjoy the surroundings and business gets conducted easily here.

I’m not going to pretend that CIP is a great eatery, but it’s a fun eatery and they do have their food moments. Take their dragon fire wings, for example. Big and meaty, with a sweet and spicy sauce, these are the kind and size of wings I’d expect (but never get) at a wings place.  What I liked best on this visit, though, were their Cruzan shrimp. Shrimp and banana peppers and a rum reduction go together extremely well.

Service here has been come and go. This visit I had an excellent server. There have been times, however, when the manager moved me to the bar because the person handling tables wasn’t cutting it. In short, if your expectations are reasonable, you’ll probably not be disappointed. This is a place trying to sell drinks, after all. But their burgers and sandwiches can be nice, and the outside seating is a lot of fun from spring through fall.

Verdict: Fun eatery, with some good food. Recommended.
