I was looking for a place to eat. A hotel clerk where I was staying recommended Chester’s Hamburger and she was right. It is the best burger I ever had in Texas.

Chesters serves their burgers almost raw. Not sure what they call it. You can order your burger well done if you want. That doesn't guarantee you will get it that way. I order my burger well done ever time and today it came raw again.I...get it to go. In fact 4 out of the last 5 times this has happened. Today I have decided I'm done with Chesters. Chesters will not ruin my lunch again. Carl BullardMore

Been eating here since '86, best damn burger overall ..... I bring groups of drivers here when coming back from picking up or delivering cars in the area or auction ... everybody raves about these burgers... Was racing yesterday at Alamo City Motorplex, as it...started getting crowded I suggested to my wife , let's go and stop at Chester's ... she was ecstatic, and once the burger arrived she remembered why we used to drive down from Austin, just to get a Chester's .... this is a fantastic burger, fries and rings are too, as is the rest of the menu ... But the Burgers are the Stars !More

Some of the best food joints are hole in the walls, in obscured areas. Chester's is one of those places that once you find it you won't be disappointed. The interior has a rural trucker's dive, not over the top. The burgers are among the...best I have ever tried, they are juicy, big, and fresh, a made to order. Their menu also has other sandwiches that are good in their own right but the hamburgers are the main attraction. Similar in price as Five Guys. Chester's Hamburgers has other locations, check out their website for that information. Overall if you in the San Antonio area, are craving for good old fashion juicy burger, Chester's is the place, I'll be returning there soon.More

The place was packed but we managed to find a table to eat our hamburgers washed down with a beer. Excellent food and value.

We saw the reviews and decided to give Chester's a try. Absolutely, not disappointed... this was the first burger in a long time that held up through eating the entire burger. Onion rings we're really tasy and the fries were fresh out of the bag...from Idaho... near where we used to live (Menan, near Idaho Falls). They were a little on the heavy side but still delicious.More

This is a burger place, they have good service, the hamburgers are great, very big burgers, made when you order them. You can have your choice of topping and they bring your order to your table, the onion rings are also very good with the...fries. You can't go wrong with this place if you like a good burger. Try it, you will like it!!!!More

Burgers are big and tasty. Fries and onion rings are a good choice. Makes for a nice meal on the run or when tired of cooking.

Went to Chester's for business lunch and had one of the best burgers ever. French fries were yummy and large portion. My friend had the onion rings and they were good too. Only minor issue was the wait for the food. Understood since each burger...is made fresh for each person. Will eat there again soon.More
