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

They are just small burgers... Some fantastic tasting small (yet filling) burgers! During my last experience there I waited about 10 mintes for the place to open. They began to let the line of customers in at 12:50pm. As soon as we selected our table we were greeted. It took approximately 5 minutes for our meals to arrive. These burger... More

The hamburgers are amazing! Good and cold beer, very crispy french fries and the bring fresh salad to your table so you can pick your own burger's fixings. The blue cheese is one of the best I have ever tasted.

Best burgers ever with a very cold Heineken! Best fries too. Very modest place, always crowd. Limited menu. But is all you need. Service can be improved.

Great place to grab a bite without having to get all dressed up. Close to El Morro in San Juan. Casual...very casual. The menu is simple! Hamburger and fries! They sale local and international cold beers. The hamburgers are a bit thick for a small child.

I was first introduced to El Hamburger by a local who said we had to go - this was 6 years ago! We went back recently and the burgers were as delicious as back then. Don't miss this place. If the place is packed, grab them to go and enjoy the view from across the street! the beautiful ocean!

I was seated in this very rustic place and asked "Que?" The rude waitress offered no greeting, no menu, just "What?" So I asked for a burger with cheddar cheese (it's all just burgers) with some fries. When it came out 10 minutes later, I knew why I stayed! Delicious burger with trimmings and even the fries were very good.... More
