The simplicity of this restaurant is what makes you have a nice time with friends or alone. It has a nice atmosphere. The burgers are just so good. My favorite at all times is the aged blue cheese burger with bacon. The price for a meal there is more than perfect for the area.

Awesome hamburgers! Great service, super fast and friendly. One burger was enough for me but my husband ordered two! Across the street there is a great place to let your food digest. The view is awesome.

Casual burger joint that had hand patted burgers and a great atmosphere. The place is old and has great views great place to grab a cheap lunch. It gets crowded around lunch time but service is quick. Worth a visit while in San Juan.

Char brolied, rustic, flavorful and juicy burgers on a small bun. These burgers are the real deal. In front of the Atlantic Ocean, in a rustic shack with the sea salt breeze all around you. Perfection :)
