Want fast food? (or food fast)- go to McDonalds. If you want cooked to order fresh food don't pass up kiosk #12. My favorite is the 1/2 lb. chorizo stuffed burger with hand cut fries. Sit out back and have an ice cold Medalla or 2. Start a conversation with the very friendly expat owner and before you know it... More

The burgers were excellent and the owners were very friendly. Their artist studio/shop next door was an added bonus for local artisan made jewelry.

Stopped here after reading some good reviews and really liked the place. Burgers cooked exactly as requested and delicious! Fries were really good too--hand cut and fresh, not the frozen kind. Beers were cold. Waiter was super friendly and you just can't beat the location next to the beach. No complaints, I'd eat here again in a heartbeat.

When we first arrived in Puerto Rico, we headed straight for the Kiosks to try El Jefe Burger Shack. We were not disappointed! The owner & his wife were super friendly! The beers were cheap and the burgers were outstanding! I highly recommend for kids and adults alike!

Most of the vendors here were closed. My family stopped in see the jewelry, my daughter found some kittens and we were locked in for dinner. A burger was not on my menu, I follow the when in Rome philosophy. But these burgers and fries were spot on. My daughter had the Cesar with grilled chicken, yes I tried it... More

We noticed this place was packed with people and smelled the yummy food. It beckoned us in and immediately was given food and drink menus. Service was great the entire time. Burgers took a little while to make but only because they literally were the best burger I have tasted in forever. Mine wAs stuffed with chorizo and plantain. My... More

A while ago, I wrote a review for this place. At that point, they seemed to have hit rock bottom with the service provided. I even named it "worst service ever" (or something like that). The point is that I felt compelled to write this review because I need to be fair. So, about 2-3 weeks ago, I decided to... More

Fun place. The family and I loved the food, milkshakes, and mojitos. The kids loved the opportunity to "tag" the ceiling.
