There are a few places in Puerto Vallarta that serve a pleasing burger and Derby Burger is one such place. Their burgers are tasty and moist and come with condiments that permutate the simple burger into a decadent treat. For less than 10 bucks, you can imagine yourself back in the Fifties when burgers were burgers and not thin wedges... More

great burgers. AMAZING pickles & iced tea. good variety of burgers. personally, I prefer my meat slightly more done than what they generally cook & serve per their menu, but never a problem getting more grill time, especially if I remember to articulate my preference. since they are right on a busy sidewalk near a popular plaza, the sideshow can...

For sure these are the best hamburgers in Vallarta! I don't really care for sitting outside to eat there. But, you can call in advance and drop by to pick up your order and take it home or to the park nearby. Highly recommended!

This place has some good things going for it, mostly what the real estate people say, location location location. Right in the heart of tourist central on Olas Altas a burger joint is going to appeal to Mexican food burned out tourists and this place certainly does. There's pretty much always a line waiting for the 12 or so sidewalk... More

Literally right down the street from our hotel - you can eat outside and people watch. The burgers are out of this world and the staff is so friendly and welcoming. Usually a wait to get in, but it's definitely worth it! Try it, you'll LOVE it!

We chanced upon this place en route to another restaurant. Thanks to the woman sitting on the patio that gave the other restaurant a thumbs down. We circled back to Derby for a great meal. Don't miss the sweet potato fries and say hello to Carlos the owner. Great guy!

I've eaten at this place a few times since I've been in Puerto Vallarta, and I'll probably end up here again before I leave. Big, half pound, freshly made patties, along with a generous side of fries is what they're serving at Derby City Burgers. Juicy, flavorful, and a great bargain.

We had several burgers in PV on our visit, and this place is the best of them. Friendly little place with great service and large tasty burgers, with generous sides of fries. Well priced too, you won't regret paying them a visit!
