Fat little burgers at a fun place right before you get into old san juan. Great view of the Atlantic. Hang out with the locals and enjoy a burger.

Well worth visiting, the food is amazing and cheap, English isn't their strong point, but they will work with you. Friendly staff, reasonably quick delivery to your table. You'll want to get at least three burgers, they are more like sliders, but taste great.

We stayed at Caribe Hilton and walked (2 times) to el hamburger. Burgers were good (tasted like backyard barbecue). Drinks were reasonably priced. Fries were very good. Most of the customers were locals. Didn't use bathroom (might not have been that great). Overall enjoyed my meal!

If you are looking for a gourmet burger, this is not your place. If you are looking for a fun atmosphere in a great location across from the beach, with a lot of local characters and amazing value, this is the perfect spot. My husband and I had two hamburgers, two orders of onion rings, and two beers for a... More

You cannot take two slices of bread put meat in the middle and call it a hamburger. Thats exactly how they do their hamburgers. My burger had no preparation what so ever. We gave the order and the burgers where delivered 3 minutes later. Meat was pre cooked and not fresh. This is a place where locals go to drink... More

A friend of my invite me to this place, I was afraid for the look outside but these hamburgers are great, small but big flavor. This is a "Chinchorro' Style place but is great;

It was packed and we were also part of a large group. They served the meal in a timely manner. Hamburgers and hot dogs are great. They also serve a tuna salad burger that was excellent. Would love to go there again.

Cheeseburgers come out like medium size sliders. Really fast service, cheap prices. Great to bring the family for lunch. Local spot. You can smell it all the way around the block.
