Have been here a lot of times in the past, must say disappointed, takes to long, no reason for it when there is only two tables, ladies room was really bad, workers need to check once in a while. Had small children and they were very hungry waiting. To many places are better then this, disappointed!

After a full day at the beach we were starving for a big burger. We had met the owner earlier in the day so decided to give El Jefe a shot. Ordered the stuffed green chili and jalapeno burger with a side order of onion wedges. The burger was cooked exactly as I asked and the onion wedges were great.... More

Defintely could have looked a little more inviting to start off but we’d heard this place had some good burgers and we were in the mood for a burger after mofongo overdose. Ended up ordering a 1/3 chuck and a slider sampler which included the stuffed chorizo, stuffed short rib and stuffed jalapeno burgers. The stuffed burger options were all... More

El Jefe offers burgers similar to the Juicy Lucy from Minnesota, only with Puerto Rican seasonings. Everything is made to order and the beef is gound from steak in the kitchen.

This place has good burgers and a deck area out back to get the breeze off the ocean. It is nothing fancy and does take a bit to get tour food like any other place in Puerto Rico. If you are looking for a simple burger ans fries in the kiosks this is the place.

A group of 4 of us were recommended this place for our lunch break during the tour of the rainforest and the biobay. We were starving and stuffed burgers sounded perfect. Our guide gave us one hour to eat and meet back at the van which seemed reasonable. There was only one other guest inside the burger shack so I... More

Ate here twice when my husband and I were really craving burgers. The stuffed burgers and mojitos were our favorites.

My family was down and they had gone Zip-Lining so we stopped at the Kiosks for lunch about 1:00. There were 2 groups of 3 there already. We asked to start with an order of nachos. We were told that they had not prepared the regular source so we agreed on a cheddar cheese sauce. What came out about 45... More

Returned here from our visit 2 years ago. My wife had been raving about the ginger mojito and the chicken nachos since then. We were not disappointed again. I would return. Salads we also great.

For our family of 3 with cocktails our bill was $70.00. A little steep for burgers but the burgers were really good so we didn't mind. They were all stuffed with different things depending on which one you ordered. It was nice to be able to see the ocean while eating.
