We were craving burgers on a recent trip to Puerto Rico, so we stopped in at El Jefe's. I started with the Diablo Shrimp, advertised as crazy hot. They were actually milder than I was expecting...which is good, because I was expecting my mouth to be on fire. Although we do come from Buffalo, where we're used to pretty hot... More

I love their mojito, especially ginger mojito! If you like a bit more sweet one, coconut mojito will do it. One of the best kioskos there. The owner is very friendly. Carlos is super attentive. Cheri also has her jewelry studio/shop next door. Make sure to check it out!

If your looking for a true Puerto Rican drink then come to Burger Shack and ask for Carlos. His Mojitos of any kind are literally award winning. The most amazing drinks I have ever had. He was super nice and friendly and couldnt make us feel more like we were at home in Luquillo. A truly great experience. Will 100%... More

My husband and I were staying at a nearby resort in Rio Grand. The kiosks in Luquillo were a recommended must as was this restaurant. We stopped by once for a bite before we took on a hike at El Yunque and had a plate of the chicken nachos. They're smothered in a homemade cheese sauce that is to die... More

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. The owners were great and really seemed to enjoy their business. Not sure about the cat comments others had-there was one cat in the place while we were there and it... More

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.
