“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Went to the Luquillo Kiosks midweek and quite a few were closed (lunchtime) so headed to El Jefe Burger Shack.

Kids had the chicken strips - plates were left clean (does not happen all the time) - chicken was really well cooked and tasty

Burger was very good and the beer battered fish very fresh and tasty.

Only downside to the meal was that the food could have arrived a little quicker - kids meals arrived first and they were finished before ours arrived.

But the place is well worth checking out

“Good Food! Great View! Friendly People!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Food was delicious, Beer was ice cold (They literally bring you a small bucket of ice to keep your beer cold) Remember you are not stateside anymore so enjoy the drinks and amazing view while your food is prepared.

“Good.....bring a sleeping bag!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

This place takes a good 30 minutes to get your order served. By that time anything would taste good. It was a little disappointing. Music is good.

“Mojitos are deeeelicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We went here our first night in Puerto Rico, it was great. It's located in the center of the Luquillo kiosks on Rte. 3 We each had the slider sampler, which is a great way to try stuffed burgers, but I bet if we ordered the regular size, it would have been a bit juicier and packed with filling...I'd go with the braised short rib. We had the Jefe fries, which was cheesy goodness and the onion wedges...chunks of fried onion in Medalla beer batter. We should have ordered a pitcher of Carlos' Coconut Mojito...it was ridiculously good! I had the Lemong Ginger Mojito, which was awesome as well. We spent about $60 total with all that food, throw in 2 sodas and a water. A very chill atmosphere, we're definitely going back to get some drinks and hang out.
