“Great casual place to eat on the cheap”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

This place is amazing!. The first time we went, I ordered cheese fries and went back that night for onion rings. They were amazing!! The fries are the perfect size, perfect seasoning, arrived hot with the right amount of cheese. The onion rings were equally as good, not too breaded and just the perfect crunch. My husband insisted I take a bite of his cheese burger. I have not had a bite of a hamburger in over a year and it was amazing!! After much moral debate, I decided to go back the next day for a plain hamburger. It was delicious! I savored every bite, appreciating the sacrifice of the animal that was slaughtered for me. They have a vast beer selection (this is what drew us in since we never eat meat at home and rarely eat meat at restaurants). I appreciated the people watching outside as well as the pigeons spectacle. Definitely worth checking out.

“I do love a good burger place!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Good old greasy burgers: plenty of choice of toppings, chips were delicious & loads of different beers on offer. If you want a great burger, fairly cheap, then you can't do better than here. Basically a fast food place (not sure why people are complaining), staff were friendly & the music was good, we can't get burgers like this at home, we loved it!

“Want a good old fashioned greasy burger?”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

With all the wonderful eating establishments in San Juan, I can't imagine why you would want what they offer but-----. You order at counter and find your own table. The burgers are beyond juicy. You can wring them out. Fries are very good. Many drink choices. If you are due for an oil change, try them out.

“Good burgers - great fries!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We were starving after our flight to PR from Chicago so as soon as we saw Buns right across the street from the Marriott we were staying at, we walked over to check it out. Good burger with caramelized onions. The fries were delicious! It hit the spot for a quick, convenient meal so that we could start exploring the Condado area. Would definitely recommend this place for a nice burger. Only problem was a woman sitting outside thought it would be a good idea to feed the pigeons and they were everywhere after that. We were in the window seats facing all of this which made it a little unpleasant to eat. But not because of the food! Lol

“Good value”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Bacon cheese burger - really good bacon, two slices of cheese, pick your own toppings. Bun sort of soggy, well cooked patty, but had a smell to it I did not like.
Bacon cheese hot dog - disappointed it had the liquid cheese, son would not eat it, but it was huge and had a lot of bacon.
Fries were good, you get alot, shared amongst three of us.
Onion rings were amazing! You don't get very much, but they were thick, golden, great coating. Strawberry shakes were fabulous! Real bits of strawberries in there
