Driving by on the main road, I was a little intimidated to take the family to this venue, but I am so glad I did! From the front, it is not much to look at, but inside and out back, what a great atmosphere! The food (we all got burgers of course!) was tremendous as was the local beer, but... More

I don't remember what they were called, but the beer battered chunks of onion are addictive. I could have sat there all day munching on them. We made a point to go here after some extended family ate here a couple weeks earlier and highly recommended it. After our morning spent in El Yunque, we arrived very hungry. We sat... More

Hamburgers were small. Almost nothing in the stuffed burgers. Less fries, and no more ice buckets for the beer. Felt sad this time.

Went here with the family (2 adults, 3 kids), probably not the best option if you have younger kids. The food was nothing amazing and the service is really slow.

Take your time here. All burgers made fresh after you order, so it takes a while, but definitely worth it. Really cool atmosphere, (don't let your first impression scare you) awesome hosts.
