“The best hamburgers in San Salvador!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

The best hamburgers in San Salvador! Get there early and sit outside it's a small place. I ordered the three cheese burger and I could only eat half so they would be great for sharing. A friend had the pulled pork sandwhich was was also great.

“Awesome burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I have been here a couple of times over the last two years with different people and everyone raves about the burgers. The other food (for the non burger people) got thumbs up as well. I don't know what they put in the burgers but they are amazing. The fries have a great seasoning too. The last time I was there the only downside was our waitress was not good, but the other times the service was fine. Everytime I'm in San Salvador I try to get there.

“save your money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

took my wife and brother there since it was the #1 place on el salvador according to trip advisor
the place looks like it was decorated with a $100 budgets : the tables are used cable rails , the glasses for your soft drinks are used mayo vases , etc
the burgers are around $10 to $13 , which is overprice for a burguer in el salvador,
they are big which is good but the taste is nothing great or special, maybe the genious chef that everybody talks about was off that day , we spent about $40 on 3 burguers and soft drinks , for that kinda money , im not going back to find out
much better places for your money
