Went to el jefe because a burger sounded good, and was not very impressed. There was a group of people very drunk at the table next to us, that the waitress kept serving until they were asleep at the table. The burger was very over cooked and the fries were soggy

The burgers were ok but not any different than what I have tasted from regular fast food joints. The staff was friendly at least and they do offer some tasty drinks.

Burger was average at best, no taste really. The fries could have been the worst we've ever had. No seasoning, cold, greasy, and just plain awful. Heard good things about this place but wouldn't return.

If you re looking for a burger in the Luquillo area this is the place for you, just don't expect anything else. There is no atmosphere and the music is very bad. Still, the burgers were pretty good and the fries were not the frozen kind.

We came here following the suggestion of our travel guide book. We expected exceptional burgers and great drinks. The place is not bad after all but not more than average

The hamburger was ok, but the fries really soggy. The service was good but the mojito quite watery. Not as good as I expected

Take a seat, multiple employees will stand around staring off into space, talking to each other, even walking out of the restaurant, but will be with you shortly. Sums it up. Food was average at best. Wings were over fried and undersauced. Nachos were odd, chicken was thrown on top as an afterthought and was dry. Clearly the owners are... More

My family and I decided to go to the Kiosk area after spending a morning at the beach. We had reviewed the menu that morning. The food was good but the service was ok. My wife ordered fried shrimp and instead she got shrimp in a BBQ type sauce. The only other complaint I have is that the charge way... More

Food was fine, service was pretty slow and the bill was YIKES! $70 for a burger, piece of fish, chicken strips, 2 beers and a mojito. Wasn't at the top of the list of kiosks we went to.
