Not a good experience, first visit after 18 years that I've ben out of the Island, long wait time, very small burger with no mayonnaise because if you want mayonnaise it cost .50 cents extra ( I could not believe it). Serve fries first and Burger later, disorganized service, place is run down. Never again for me.

Decided to try El Hamburger because we stayed nearby. Looks like a dive, and is not comfortable in the heat, because there is no a/c. Nothing fancy about it at all. The hamburgers were small but tasted freshly grilled. Other than that, it was just your run of the meal hamburger joint. The server was not particularly friendly, but that... More

Locals recommended we had a burguer at this restaurant. Let me just say is not gourmet but is a very local experience with a very flavorful burguer and fries! Cheap, fast and good is usually a winning combination!

It's an informal simple burger bar serving only 4/5 types of small burgers, very cheap (2/3 euro each). At a walking distance from El Escambron. They don't speak English.

Local place with ONE specialty...homemade hamburgers! Other options are limited but hamburgers are fabulous! One drawback, no A/C, only fans. Great view from across street of Atlantic Ocean.

Looks like a garage from the outside and not much different from the inside. Your choice is burgers or burgers, but they good burgers.

We went here because of reviews on Trip Advisor. Yes its small. Yes the AC is almost none. But yes these little burgers pack a punch and I swear I've never had a colder beer. Its so affordable and worth a visit. Its a hidden hole in the wall gem.
