That's absolutely the only way to describe it. The staff are super friendly and when our food was a bit of a wait, which is always is in Nicaragua, they gave us free shots with our meal. The owner Nick is an awesome surfer so if you're thinking about going out and catching some waves at some point in your... More

We were debating between this place and the fancier Mediterranean place that we'd eaten at last night. Wow, what a great choice to indulge in what was, no doubt, the best comfy meal we've had in six weeks of Central American travel. This place does up a killer burger. I opted for the salad as a lighter side -- good... More

The burgers are simply delicious and huge. The fries were overcooked but still good. The service was slow but the staff was very friendly. The drinks were also very good.

We stumbled across this place just wandering the streets of SJDS. After one burger we were hooked. In our 1 1/2 month stay we probably ate here about 15 times. They have many different burgers and everyone of them are 100% gourmet quality. You should try everything because it really is that good, but my 3 favorite items were the... More

Went for lunch and a beer. Sat out on the street. Service was excellent. Some of the best burgers I have tasted. Even my wife liked the burger and she never eats them.

Don't let the burger names steer you away, you can also order by number. There is one for everyone's taste, the buns are very special, they make them!

I wish I could give this place more than 5 out of 5. Despite their name, this is a burger joint and boy do they know how to cook burgers!! The ladies here are very sweet and they clearly care about the food they make. I had the #4 "in and out animal" burger. I will be dreaming about my... More

Gourmet hamburgers with reasonable prices. Taste combinations that you didn't think would work together. They also use coconut buns, which are so much healthier than the usual high-carb ones, which is another major reason to eat here. Warning: portions are huge tho!
