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. It took at least an hour from when we ordered to get our burgers. If you are hanging out having some drinks, then sure, that's no big deal. If you're... More

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.

Make sure you stop in here for a burger - they're great! I had a bacon cheeseburger with Caribbean BBQ sauce. Absolutely delish! The owner was also very helpful with his beer selection, which includes some local Puerto Rican options. Don't forget to sign the wall. :)

Definitely make the Luquillo kiosks part of your trip, and while you're there, stop at El Jefe. The burgers are yummy and so are the bacon wrapped dates - wow!

Don't let the outside fool you...the food is excellent and the music just adds to the ambiance. Also don't forget to try the bacalitos...wonderful.

We stopped here for take out one night. It is definitely more of a bar atmosphere with loud music playing inside, although there are a few outside tables that are quieter. It is a very cool place and the staff was super friendly. We had a couple of different kinds of burgers, sliders, fried cheese and french fries. They were... More

Delicious, that is all I can say. Had the chorizo stuffed burger topped in their specialty cheese sauce and fries. Now the place looks like a gas station restroom.. That serves the best burger I have ever had!
