Good food & much more than just good hamburgers!

Note: we ate at the El Corral inside Oviedo Mall, 2nd floor within quality restaurant area (not fast food area). There are many El Corral locations all over Medellin. The menu is huge, with a variety of Colombian & American dishes. It was hard to decide which tasty entree to order. I had two... read more

Fresh ingredients, nice taste, juicy meat, crunchy fries... You can find these sort of things here. I recommend the coffee milkshake (ask to add double coffee). You should try it if you like junk food.

This is a popular place for the locals, and the hamburgers are the real deal here. Prices reasonable, family friendly too.

El Corral is a national chain in Colombia that can be found almost anywhere. Some locations are VERY attentive to cleanliness and service, others a bit less so. You can get char-grilled burgers (al carbon/asado) or burgers made on a press (a la plancha). They also have a weird steak sandwich, a weirder turkey sandwich and maybe some sort of... More

This was my favorite restaurant for a bacon burger, especially before a night of heavy drinking in Parque Lleras. The best burger in Medellin.

This is really the best burger joint in Colombia. The burgers grilled in a carbon grill! Really delicious and the taste is glorious! The chain restaurant can be found almost in every big city in Colombia, but it is worth it. Every time I go to Colombia, I mist eat one time there. Is that good!

At most shopping malls there are the usual food courts, but at Centro Comercial Oviedo, El Corral hits the mark. We had the grilled salmon oriental which was so good, we came back another night and it was just as tasty. The ensalada oriental was just as delicious and happy hour gave us quite a few drinks to absorb before... More
