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.

Last visit we enjoyed a great bacon cheeseburger. They also have chicharrones (crispy chicken bites) that are delicious. Doesn't look like much - The Kioskos are a row of local cuisine and souvenir shops along the beach on the east side of the island. The Blue Flag beach Monserrate (1 0f 9 on the island) is next to the kiosks... More

We ate at this burger place during our stay in PR. The food was good, staff very nice and helpful. Overall pricing was great, drinks menu could have been a little clearer as the Tequila got very expensive. Would recommend highly.

The coco mojitos arrived first and they were excellent, very refreshing. However, they were small and overpriced. We ordered their stuffed burgers and they were just ok. We were expecting greater flavour but you really couldn't tell if the patties were actually "stuffed" with anything. The burgers came with fries, which were pretty good. We did order an extra side...
