A darn good burger and fun atmosphere

If you want a good burger try Chris Madrid's. There's nothing fancy here. You order at a counter and pick up your food yourself. You sit at long tables (also have outside tables available, but it was pretty warm the day we visited). The burgers are great. I'm a purist. Give me a quality... read more

If you like CHEESE and big portions, this is your place! This is one of the best burgers I've ever had. The portions of fries are massive. Absolutely love this place, only bad thing is the parking can be bad at times! Can't wait to return!

The line was long but it went fast. The food came out fast, hot, and fresh. Each dish was made right the first time. Fun atmosphere despite the amount of people on a Saturday evening. The burgers and nachos both have tons of cheese on them. They were so good!

We have eaten at Chris Madrids several times over the past couple years. It's always delicious. Excellent burgers. The nachos are good too. This place is always in our restaurant rotation when we are in town.

Two choices of burgers. The large or the ginormous! Hah, these folks are definitely generous with their portions and these customizable bites are worth it. Plates can be ordered a la carte and there is much parking and seating, both in and outdoor. Fun fact: they are closed Mondays and are amazing for bigger parties.

This place was recommended by a friend and damn it was good. Don't let the small haggered building fool you, this place was delicious! I got the tostada bean burger and my wife ordered the cheddar cheezy burger and we shared a family order of fries. We both ordered the burgers in Macho size, I added grilled onions to mine,... More

Stopped in for lunch. Yum. We went at 11am on a Tuesday and had no trouble getting a seat. We got macho tostado burgers and fries. So much food. We had a mango margarita with it which was good but not strong. My son got plain cheese nachos and loved them. Their salsa is so incredibly fresh. We would definitely... More

The tostado burger is the best burger I have ever eaten. I almost don't want to tell you how good it is because this place is already crowded and sometimes your standing around with your food waiting for a table to open up. Its a buttery bun, juicy patty, refried beans, onions and LOADS of melted cheddar. Its messy and... More

While on vacation with friends, this was recommended to us. BEST PLACE EVER. The burgers are great. I had mine "macho" sized, I did not regret it once so ever. My other friends got full with theirs, so I ended up eating theirs also. My sister does not eat meat, they did have nachos which she ordered. Those were kind... More
