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 :)

Very casual little hamburger joint that serves burgers that taste like they came from your own grill. They are a little on the small side, but very inexpensive, so order two. The only complaint was that the fries and onion rings came out much quicker than our burgers, and we were starving, so they were gone before we ever saw... More

It's all about the burger. Soggy fries and frozen rings. Burgers have gotten smaller and more expensive but still a spot id go to anytime. Beach joint for sure. Have 2 burgers and 2 Medallas and you're good to go.

Mostly a locals place right on the ocean a bit off the beaten path. Any taxi driver can get you there. Nothing fancy... but awesome grilled burgers, fries and cold drinks. Super friendly waiter. We had a great time.
