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.

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.

Still good food and service after so many years (founded in the early 60's). Nothing fancy, just an American retro style restaurant / fast food. Their burgers are huge and fries are crisp and tender. My family loved the flavor / taste of the "bife de chorizo" with nothing more than salt on it.
