Yummy Burgers!

A little off the beaten path but great burgers. The building looks like a dive but it's nice inside with a large patio out back. The regular size burgers are big enough to share. Come hungry if you go with the "macho" burger. The fries were good too but the family size order was too big for us... read more

Go for the tostada bean burger and the mango margaritas. Whoever thought of putting corn chips and delicious refried beans on an already excellent cheeseburger is a genius. We didn't want the burger to end! Dress it up with salsa and pico de gallo if you like or enjoy it in its natural state.

This was amazing! The restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and I paid a visit out of sheer curiosity and took some friends with me. They all agreed that it was worth the trip! Yes, you can't eat there too often because of the clogged arteries that may result, however, for a good cheat meal or a special... More

If you are in for a big fat juicy burger, and then a 1 week triglycerides detox, then it is the place. The taste of the burger is great, the price..well, I've had better (La Tuna in SA, Diner 24 in Austin,TX) I don't think I am going back...maybe just for a special occasion.

I had the Macho Flaming Jalapeño Burger w/cheese, it was huge and tasted excellent. Place doesn't look like much from the outside but give it a shot. Nice atmosphere, everyone very friendly and most importantly the food is great.

Bring a big appetite because you will need it. The burgers are great and they are big. It is very casual with picnic table seating. You order at the counter. Fun and great place to go for lunch or dinner.

My husband and I always have to share the macho porky's burger or else I wouldn't be able to eat it by myself. It is good. I also get the macho nacho's - nacho with beans and picadillo meat plus you can top it with jalapeños if you like. The food has always been consistent everytime we go.

I saw this place listed in Maximum Magazine as one of the best places to have a burger. The cheese was impressive and think that it is the selling point along with the mere size for the cost. The meat was tasteless and could had been seasoned a bit. The fries were large in portion but a lot of grease... More

The first time I went here over 30 years ago it was a dive with great burgers- now it has expanded to a kitchy place with lots of seating and great burgers for the meat eaters and alternatives for the vegetarians (which I have become). A must go to in San Antonio for great food, and tons of it, at... More

Big burger with lots of cheddar. Good old fashion burgers with a twist. Always a line, but worth the wait.
