Man oh man, their burgers are good! They put LOTS of cheese on them and they're so juicy! You're gonna need more napkins than you think for these babies! Makin' me hungry just thinking about it!

Chris Madrid's is still one of the best burger places in town. Made fresh to order, always great! Their fries and cut fresh on each order. They pack on the cheddar cheese and they are loaded with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and pickles. This is a family business and they are friends. Their quality has never diminished in all of these...

Found Madrid's on Trip Advisor and had a terrific lunch. Looking for a good burger and a beer. Happily surprised how good the nachos were too. Will return next time I am in San Antonio.

The largest and best hamburgers in TX(the type that the juice runs down your arm). A great place to go and have a burger. Great staff, fast service. You can eat inside or outside. They have the old fashion type burgers. I have not tried their other foods, just burgers. Always a large crowd and long lines, but fast service.... More

Everytime i have been here the line is always long, but the line is served very fast. Food is nice, burger has LOT of cheese, greasy but still very good. Heart attack on a plate and not something you should ear every day. Servings are big and the atmosphere good. Have to visit Chris Madrid's once everytime i visit San... More

These burger are delcious! It's been awhile since I've been here, so was worried it wouldn't live up to my expectations. I was wrong, this place is still delcious. I've never had their bean and cheese nachos before and was pleasantly surprised. Totally getting them again. Mmmmm.

Went here at the recommendation of a friend for a quick lunch meeting. Service was quick and the food delicious. I opted for the regular jalapeño burger. Glad I did. The larger size would have been a waste. Very glad we went. Will definitely be back.

Restaurant food is excellent. Best burgers in town. Very busy and it seems employees are just tired of always being busy. Wait was over 30 minutes just to order plus over a hour to get food. You must order in line not full service. Employees not very welcoming. Not organize does not seem very dirty but can't say clean. Hot... More

Whenever we visit San Antonio this is a must place. It's a greasy burger. But it's the best. There is no other. Please make sure to get a cheddar burger. It's important! And so worth it.

As usual, one of the best places to get a huge, tasty burger with some awesome fries on the side. The line was a little long, but our food was ready in a flash, and as good as always. It is definitely one of our favorite places to eat in town.
