“yummy burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We got off the bus from Pereira and checked into our hotel, and there was this gourmet burger place just out front. We might have been starving, but it was really fantastic. Burgers are cooked to perfection (I like mine medium well, but you can ask them for something else if you like). They are big with huge toppings. The fries are yummy (had both the small ones and the wedges). And the soft drinks are refillable. We ended up eating here on our last day in Medellin as well. Both the burgers I had (can't remember which ones, but i think one had chili and the other had nacho cheese) were pretty tasty.
Service was really great - the waitstaff are all hipster cool but without the indifference or attitude.

“Tasty Hamburguers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

I tried two different places: Poblado and Laureles, and the service and quality of food are so great. The attention is focused on you and what do you need and want. The food is tasty and you can choose for several options. Starters are tasty too. Next time I'll go and try the place in Llanogrande!

“Best Burgers in Colombia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I have lived in Colombia for three years and I have never eaten a good burger. Until I tried Chef Burger today. Great quality beef, cooked to perfection. I'd recommend the bacon cheese burger, served with lettuce and tomato. 150 grams, perfect size for a meal. They serve their burgers with sides of barbecue and club sauce. Fries were great as well. Burger, fries, drink, tax, and tip, under $18.000 ($9.50 US). Great atmosphere, great service, this is a great place to bring a date, watch a sports game, or kick back with your buddies for burgers and beers.

“I cant believe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have been living 5 blocks away from Chef for 6 months, and never decided to go in. I had a cheese burger which was spectacular! Good meat, medium rare, lettuce tomato and decent cheese. The rustic potatoes were hot and not greasy. Price was just over 6 dollars for the burger and an iced tea. I shall return!
