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.

Pound for pound my favorite burger in the world is this place's Roquefort Burger. I get 2 with french fries and a coke. A simple place locals frequent for the tasty burgers, don't expect fancy decor, nor a touristy feel, but genuinely excellent, simple burgers, with some great ocean views from the counter.

Personally I have been going the El Hamburger for the past 20 years whenever we want an old fashioned no nonsense hamburger in a restaurant that is known by many for the best, simple, fresh, handmade burgers in Puerto Rico. It's not fancy, located at the entrance to Old San Juan, it is always packed and famous for late night... More

The burgers here at this local burger joint are very plain and simple. You order a $3 cheeseburger and dress it up and eat it. You can tell it isn't just a party thrown on the grill, it's actually ground beef that you have to pat and form. Of course the party can use a little seasoned salt but it... More

great burgers in this very 'local' burger joint. A nice change from the hi-priced food places of OSJ. These are big burgers and are deceptive in size. Great sides and cold Beer ! Thanks

This is where the saying "Keep It Simple Stupid" comes into play. Very simple burger joint that I have yet to see empty. No rocket science here and their burgers are still so delicious. Even ordered some chicken breast burgers for the family and man just as delicious. Don't miss out on this spot as its on your way before... More
