A traditional fast food restaurant

"El Garaje" is the best option in Bucaramanga if you want to taste delicious fast food, the environment is really comfortable. If you want to visit the original restaurant "El Garaje" you should go to Carrera 46 #56. Anyway, if you prefer fast food mixed with gourmet food you should go to the "El... read more

Had heard a lot about this place. A caricature of a classic American burger place. Food was very slow coming out and was slightly underwhelming. Service was pretty bad. Had to ask twice to get salt for the chips

It was fine. That was all. They had a good menu with a variety of choices, the service was good and I liked the atmosphere. When it came down to the burger, I thought it was pretty average. And on top of this, it was way over priced. I don't think it's worth going back.

I tought we had good burgers in America, but this guys really know how to surprise you. They are a bit difficult to eat, but they taste very good. I'll be back for sure.

Burgers are ok, too much for my taste considering they not just put the usual hamburger meat but also chicken and everything you can imagine (for some this is ideal though!). The bread is really the cheapest most un-fresh kind you can find in the market which makes me think I can definitely find this sort of burger elsewhere for... More

Possibly the best burger restaurant I've been to. The food is always tasty, satisfying, and the have lots of juicy options. The last time I had the "santandereana Rock burger" which was absolutely amazing! Everything was fresh and the arepa santandereana with the potatoes inside were outst

Romantic.... No. Best food I have ever had......... No. The most delicious hamburguer I have had at a restaurant in a long time....absolutely! Food is great, service even better. A classic london establishment that's hard to describe.

Had a spicy burger with jalapenos from the Rock menu. Very tasty. Atmosphere in the restaurant was pleasant, full of locals. Possibly a tad overpriced compared to other places but good quality all the same.

If you're looking for sizable fast food this can be one of the places the city has to offer. Great variety and pretty god service. However, not the best flavor and wouldn't recommend the corn since my brother just got food poisoned with it there.
