Let me explain...On Saturday, 3/26/22 I hosted an event at this restaurant and the event was set up by a local company who made arrangements with the restaurant for a group of 10-12 people on the patio. The event required the use of approximately 6...tables and was booked and confirmed with the Restaurant Manager for up to 3 hours between 11:30am-2:30pm. The reservation was confirmed twice prior to the event date. The event was to include a crafting project and lunch at Burgers & Beer. So...everyone arrived around 11:30am and some of the attendees ordered and ate prior to the Crafting while some of us chose to wait until after the craft process. We had been there exactly one hour when the event hostess approached me and asked me to join her inside because the owner, A Mr. Marco Honold was very upset and there was apparently a problem with our "Reservation". When I approached Mr. Honold, his arms were crossed, his foot was tapping and he had a scowl on his face as if I had slapped him. I introduced myself and without so much as a "nice to meet you", he launched into a tirade about how could I expect to sit on his patio drinking iced tea and crafting for 3 1/2 hours? He was running a business and not a craft center! The man obviously did not take into account that some of us had already eaten while others had just ordered and others were waiting until after AND we likely would be there only 2 1/2 hours not 3 as our RESERVATION permitted. His tirade went on to include him asking us to finish up and leave immediately while I stood there amazed at this man's COMPLETE UNPROFESSIONALISM! We had only been there an hour! I requested an additional 45 minutes to give my attendees the opportunity to complete their projects and if they choose, order lunch. The owner agreed to this request with great disdain and repugnance in his reply. From the moment I walked up, Mr. Honold was combative and rude. As a member of the business community, I hold Business Owners to high standard of professionalism and service. This man's attitude towards our guests is unforgivable. As a member of a very large networking group here in the Coachella Valley and one who holds many events around the desert, I can honestly tell you, I will strongly discourage anyone from holding an event at this establishment let alone patronizing it at all. The owner is not interested in building community or supporting small business owners...he is simply rude. He embarrassed himself, his staff and my attendees. There is no excuse. He could have come at it from a kind heart but he chose not to. Too bad...Burgers & Beer is not a nice option.More

Service is great but the food is not my favorite. I never pick Burgers and Beer as my first choice but if someone else wants to go I won’t say no. It is also way too noisy.

Took my son and his shipmate that are stationed at nearby Navel Airfield El Centro to grab some good burgers and good beer. The food was mediocre and the service left something to be desired. If in a bind then this is a decent place...but I would look for an Applebees or Chili's. They did have a good selection of on tap beers so I guess there is that.More

The food was good but a very limited menu. Service was slow but accurate. Beer selection is better than most restaurants.

This is out second visit to this restaurant. We decided to come back since the first visit was great! We are from Arizona and visiting family and I would highly recommend this place. The servers are great, the place is clean (bathrooms need some work)...but the rest of the place is very clean and inviting. The food is very good, I would definitely recommend this place!More

Did I really order fish in a burger joint?! Yeah, I did. Couldn't resist as much fresh fish as possible while in CA.

This is a rather happy and noisy sports bar - good burgers and many varieties of beer. Service is bit slow at rush hours, of course. Popular! Often must wait for a table. Salads also quite good

Food was good. Service was fair. We had a total of 5 different staff assisting us. The fact that it was a mall location made it difficult to leave. Due to the time we left, staff would not let us exit back through the mall....Instead, we were guide out of the building through the outdoor patio area. Our vehicle was parked on the opposite side of a large mall. I had to walk almost 1/2 mile around 2 anchor stores and a movie theater to get to my car. It was almost 100 degrees outside still. This was our second visit to this location and is now our last.More

The food is AMAZING. Everything we ordered (and we went three different times over two days!) was exquisite. Great selection, fabulous portions, and fresh-made dishes. And the drinks are another added plus (try the Mexicali Margarita if you have a chance). To top it all...off, the service is phenomenal. Can't wait to eat here again when we go back to visit family.More

If you love an old fashioned open faced burger smothered with chili (Texas style chili, not New Mexico style chile)and a pile of crispy fries then you better get your butt to Burgers and Beer in El Centro California baby. It's totally old school good....The restaurant is a good sized sports bar. Friendly people, local color, just a good meal and a good time.More

Maybe it was an off night but our experience felt thrown together. Server seemed rushed/distracted, food was not presented well and the burgers were dry. My son ordered the “Bacon Burger” and they forgot the bacon. Everything tasted ok but at $14 a burger, you...expect a little more than ok. My daughter’s chicken sandwich was the star of dinner. Unfortunately, it’s Burgers & Beer not Chicken & Beer. My advice, take the family to In n Out or The Habit...Better burgers @ a much better price.More
