Very unimpressive exterior of the establishment made me a little leery of trying this place out. Let me say that I am so glad that I went in! I decided to order the Tostada Bean Burger. This burger has beans, chips, salsa, of course a ground beef patty and it's all smothered with cheese. It was unlike any burger that... More

My mom raved about this place and insisted we give it a try. We ordered hamburgers, a vehicle burger and fries. Portions huge, food mediocre, Burgers overlooked and fries cold. The vega burger is from Costco or somewhere similar. The ice tea needed was okay but remember you are serving yourself. if McDonalds sold liquor, it would be ranked higher.

I've been eating at Chris Madrid's since I was a college student (in the 1980s). And it's the kind of place to go to eat like a college student--inexpensive, filling, yummy and fun food. The Tostada Bean Burger is the best, and unlike anything I've tried elsewhere. Enjoy!

Get a great burger, okay, it's a little messy - so what? Tastes great. Top it off with a big selections of cold beer to pick from..... and ain't it GREAT to live in America?!?!?!

The burgers here are simply awesome! If you come, you must get the Nacho burger, which comes with cheese, salsa, refried beans and corn chips. Definitely are able to split with two people. E prices here are very reasonable, and he service is quite quick. He neighborhood is not exactly best, but it's a quick taxi from downtown. When I'm... More

not even a question. These burgers (and you should go for the macho) are paralleled by no other burger in town....thus the long lines and wait. Definitely worth the calories and wait!!!!

Great Neighborhood Burger Joint! Excellent burgers, chalupas and nachos. The pico de gallo (fresh salsa) is the best in town. The beer is ice cold and the service is great. Sometimes, there is a long line; however, don't be discouraged... It is worth the wait. You will never be disappointed. It is extremely family friendly and price wise, it is... More

We went to this burger restaurant today for the first time in years and were disappointed. The place is overrated. The building in run down and there were many flies in the restaurant, the result of the door to the patio being constantly opened. It is simply unattractive and not conducive to a pleasant meal. You must make your way... More

Chris Madrid's is a MUST if you're craving an inexpensive, casual meal away from the mass of downtown. Simple flat-to-medium patty (get the Macho for a little extra if hungry), served on a buttered bun in a truly festive San Antonio setting. I had the Jalapeño Macho. Fries like you'd make at home if you had a deep fryer -... More
