“Consistency has become a problem...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

As a former owner of a restaurant, I know how hard it is to be consistent...Please see my past reviews of this property...However, recently, especially on mondays and tuesdays, the burgers have been served VERY well done and not what I have had in the past....As a chef owned property, he cares deeply about his restaurant, but step out of the kitchen and all quality goes out the door...It is a rule of the business, but when the chef / owner is not there, I have stopped going after the last 3 times the food was of poor quality....the other employees, in the kitchen, have either not the skill or the care to put out good food....I really hope this is coreected, because I loved take out on a monday night, but maybe it is back to tacos instead.....I will continue to try them and will update as I always want to give the owner a chnace to fix issues....I really hope this is not a great place falling over the ledge to mediocrity....

“The Bomb Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

If you are in town these burgers are the best, this place is a Must visit! Gourmet hamburgers!!!!!!! Top sirloin hamburgers with Gouda cheese, they also have the best Lamb hamburgers, their Kabobs with Pita bread are soo tasty! The waiters are really nice and helpful, they also recommend some delicious beer from Ensenada and the TJ area, you rarely find these beers in Guadalajara!
This is a very casual place, it seems as if the owners of this restaurant chipped in with their grandparents furniture......... the style is soo original (small by the way). Be ready to wait outside, but every minute is worth the wait:)

“Hamburgers are a Bomb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

When I passed by the location, you can't help to notice the aromatic smell of burgers, cooked on wood. I felt like I needed to try one and I did. The selection are great if you are a hamburger jukie. I love the atmosphere, including the chef, in many cases will ask customers if the hambuger needed something to improve the quality of his work. Pig's Pearls is a burger heaven, and do not forget the selection of beer, that is not the typical or normal. I love it!

“Great Little Place! What They Do, They Do Well.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

If you enjoy a good hamburger, and who doesn't(?), this could be the place for you. It has local charm, is informal, easy to get to (just blocks off Chapultepec). Only mild criticism is that there is no menu available and you get the selections, rapid fire! As good as my spanish is, I was left scratching my head. But menu is limited, and you can't go wrong. A big plus for many will be the beer selection which consists of product of microbreweries around the Republica Mexicana.
