We wanted to try the stuffed burgers. We decided to have the samplers and then we split an order of nachos. The burgers were some of the best we have ever had. So juicy!! The nachos were good too. We originally sat outside but it was a little buggy so we moved inside. Loved the uniqueness of the place. Would... More

Can't wait to go back and visit this Kiosko! Our bartender/owner was delightful to chat up and we thoroughly enjoyed our burger and fried chicken! The local dog that was hanging out was a plus too since we missed our pooches!

Loved this place so much we came back a second time. Delicious burgers (they do take a bit, but are worth it) and the cheese fries are crazy fantastic.

We stopped in one night because we were sick of Puerto Rican food. The stuffed burgers are really good. I also loved the avocado Caesar with tilapia. Great mojitos.

The place smelled of cat urine. Since the burgers are ground to order and then cooked to order, there is a good wait. Not very appetizing. Will not be back.

So on our 8th night in Puerto Rico we needed some american style food. So we chose burgers. El Jefe was a good choice. The burgers are big and delicious and the kids were happy too. The nachos looked tasty and the staff was wonderful. I would say the only negative were the cats. There were at least 6 on... More

Great, low-key burger joint with the best mojitos! I had a delicious stuffed burger. Their lemon-ginger mojito is delicious, refreshing and won an award from Bacardi! Definitely worth a stop! It's not open everyday, so check on the hours if you plan to go.

Nice stop after hiking in the rain forest. Had mojitos and beer. Beer comes in a personal ice bucket! Shared a few apps which were tasty. Had burger and grilled fish-delicious!

One of the best burgers I've had in the entirety of the Caribbean. Service was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. Don't forget to sign the wall when you're done eating.
