Amazingly good for a South American airport

Really good pair of little burgers, one with cheese, in a basket. Energetic service, even if the poor waiter kept getting the tables confused. Bad Argentine beer, as always.

Took 30 minutes waiting for a burger and got out without it or I would itloose my flight. Did even bother me telling was going to be the sloest burger in the world. Avoid it at all cost!

This restaurant is in the Ezeiza Airport, where there aren't any other place serving more then sandwiches and snacks. It was a shame ate that awful steak of Chorizo in a Argentine restaurant, even one that serves american food. Besides that, the service was slow and not friendly. Most important: as all airports restaurants, it's expensive.

Good food, good service & reasonable price at the Ezeiza airport branch. I spent a leisurely 2 hours waiting for my flight & eating main course, plus dessert & a few coffees. Even the background music was great. Perfect volume & such variety that every few songs there was something I really liked. The restaurant is on the upper departures... More

Martínez is a great place to leave, lot's of foreigners leave in the area and most love burgers...or their kids do.. This has created a great restaurante symposium in the area..amongst these are a few burgers places to eat and The Embers not only has it been here since the 60's it is one of the best..

Very dirty and we got there pretty early in the day. The service was very slow. There was quite a bit on the menu, but no one left really satisfied with their meal. The food was OK, at best. We won't be back.

I tried it because my family used to go there some 30 years ago. Food quality would be acceptable if it was a cheap food stand in a stadium, station or public park. Given its reputation and price it is unacceptable. For the same price you can go to a more than decent restaurant or asador and it something REAL.

The place is crowded on weekends. Their hamburgers are very good. Been there several times an are always consistently very good. Would not try other type of food, though they have other dishes. Good place if you are with kids: they will give them balloons and those sorts of things.

The Embers is a funky little joint worth checking out of you're in Buenos Aires for a while. It's American food through a definite Argentine viewpoint. This gives the burgers and fries a unique twist that don't quite fit in either country. I've eaten there dozens of times and would love to again. It has a huge menu and it's... More

It's been there since the 60's! It has become a classic of American food in Acassuso although It has an argentine twist to it. They could do a little upgrading in the decoration, but without losing its essence. Food is really good, service is attentive and professional. Really great for families.
