Just burgers

The menu is basic, hamburgers, you decide the cheese and extras, its a Puerta de Tierra favorite, go over, hang out. Parking is a premium and sometimes hard to find.

This burgers are probably the contenders for the best burgers in town and not just for flavor but for the price as well. Nothing fancy, not that many ingredients, just great meat patties. If you eat a lot, order 2, they're kinda small.

Burgers are very good, for the big appetites order two. Take a look at the menu in front of restaurant, there is no menu at hand. Service is very fast and friendly.

I had a bacon cheeseburger. Let's get something out of the way first. The Burgers here are not huge by any means. But don't be fooled by their size. These bad boys can pack a punch! The burgers are really good and tasty. They also serve fries and onion rings. Oh and don't forget the view of the Atlantic Ocean,... More

Service was fast and friendly, menu had multiple burger/topping varieties to choose, burger was like a quarter pounder served on a slider size bun, tasty and juicy. Fries were crispy outside, tender inside. Walking distance from Caribe Hilton. Burger, fries, soda, and friendly service for less than 10 bucks. looks like a hole in the wall without enough advertising signage,... More

Best way to describe this place is that it is quality fast food. The burgers, made in-house, have real flavor. The food overall feels fresh. And the food is inexpensive. The location looked clean, but it is also rundown and deteriorated.

We got so tired of spending a ton of money eating our hotel, a local reffered us here. 10-15 mins walking time from Hilton Caribe. They only serve BURGERS! With all the trimmings and fries or onion rings. They were fast, and the food was great. Handmade patties straight off the BBQ. It hit the spot- do not miss out... More

Come in for a great burger and beer on the cheap. Lots of locals and fairly easy to find. If you are in old San Juan just a shirt walk up the hill and you will be treated to an old world experience with great staff and cheap beer.
