We stopped for drinks, decided to eat, and were pleasantly surprised. We ordered the small burger and fries (it seemed like a large) and shrimp fajitas which my wife proclaimed to be the best she had ever had. She was going to share, but ate the whole thing herself. With their location only one block from the beach, we will... More

Burgers come in 3 sizes with many topping options. Prices start from $85 pesos for a small burger and fries. Good value for the area. Nice vibe with sport playing on the TVs. The burger meat was decent, nothing amazing, however the topping options make it much nicer. Fries with cheese also nice. Overall nice food and good vibe at... More

I have been coming and traveling to Mexico and Playa del Carmen for the past 25 years, so I really know my way around. This is such a bad restaurant that it is the first time in my life that I put a ''terrible'' rating, on TripAdvisor. Now, I don't know what kind of people can appreciate the burgers in... More

The hamburgers looked amazing and were more than enough for most. I was surprised when I first tried it as the texture seem weird and it tasted bland. I am a big eater and I just couldn't finish it do to the texture, even after adding a ton of ketchup to add flavor. The fries were good and they had... More

For the last 6 years this establishment has never served me up a bad burger. We usually get them to go for the beach. ( in Spanish you would say "para llevar" )

Burgers were cooked well and were the perfect size for us greedy Brits. The only downfall is there are no veggie burger options ( I... More
