I don't know if they changed the recipe, the cook or what? But I used to love this place. Not any more... I went today and left totally disappointed, because it's not what it used to be. The meat was dry and without flavor. The service was as good as always, but the quality? Not there at all... Don't think... More

Typical and traditional spot in San Juan. A little busy and crowded; might be hot also; But you will get a Burger as it is supposed to be. Party atmosphere although it is a familiar place. great French Fries

Cheap place, cheap service, cheap prices...very simple menu. Always crowded. Historic place. Nice variety of burgers, which are very good. Just two choices of sides: fries and onion rings. Come as you are.

El Hamberguer has been around for decade. Home made burger. Tasty onion ring and French fries. Beer, soda, cheese cake from cheese cake factory. Plate with onion, tomatoes, pickles and lettuce also go alone with the burger. Medium size restaurant that start at lunch and never end. People going in and out always. Stop and grab a real juice big... More

I have frequented this place for many years especially for lunch during the work week which does get crowded. It's a good burger I must admit I have had better in other spots but it's good. They are small so if your hungry order two plus the onion rings are tasty my favorite on the menu. Also good spot to... More

This place only means quality, excellence and freshness. The only bad thing is that sometimes is a little hot, but you can't have a better burger with fresh meat and just made in a fire grill. I don't like salads, but the burger with bacon is awesome, the bacon taste like bacon should, crunchi, lots of meat and with character.... More

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.
