“Cheap and Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Well worth visiting, the food is amazing and cheap, English isn't their strong point, but they will work with you. Friendly staff, reasonably quick delivery to your table. You'll want to get at least three burgers, they are more like sliders, but taste great.

“local, better than resort, reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We stayed at Caribe Hilton and walked (2 times) to el hamburger. Burgers were good (tasted like backyard barbecue). Drinks were reasonably priced. Fries were very good. Most of the customers were locals. Didn't use bathroom (might not have been that great). Overall enjoyed my meal!

“Fun experience: lots of character!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

If you are looking for a gourmet burger, this is not your place. If you are looking for a fun atmosphere in a great location across from the beach, with a lot of local characters and amazing value, this is the perfect spot. My husband and I had two hamburgers, two orders of onion rings, and two beers for a whopping $17. Burgers are under $4. Just a fun burger dive place, which I would heartily recommend.

“Slightly better than your average fast food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

You cannot take two slices of bread put meat in the middle and call it a hamburger. Thats exactly how they do their hamburgers. My burger had no preparation what so ever. We gave the order and the burgers where delivered 3 minutes later. Meat was pre cooked and not fresh. This is a place where locals go to drink and eat something. Not a real hamburger joint. More like a bar that serves quick bites.

“Don't be Afraid to Enter, you will enjoy this place.”

A friend of my invite me to this place, I was afraid for the look outside but these hamburgers are great, small but big flavor. This is a "Chinchorro' Style place but is great;
