“Best Burgers in the island...”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This place is basically open 24hrs, and is always full of cool people. They serve the greatest "homemade" burgers around. The view in front to the ocean is amazing, great prices too.

“Best beach side low key place away from touristy Old San Juan”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

El Hamburger is a busy burger shack that has a great view of the coast. Hamburgers can come topped with blue cheese, bacon, Swiss, cheddar or American cheese. They also have fries and onion rings. Not a huge selection but that means they do what they have just right! Great place to start or end your day, as its about 2 miles outside of Old San Juan. If you're up for it, its about a 40 minute walk, but all on the sidewalk next to the coast.

“Best burger ever-seriously”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We stumbled upon this place walking to Playa Escambron. It appears to be a dive but man, these are the best burgers ever. And unlike every other restaurant in San Juan it's very reasonably priced. Very simple service and presentation. It overlooks the water crashing on the shore.

“Pretty much average”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

First time I had a burger at this joint was about 13 years ago and I loved it. I came back just a few days ago and was very disappointed. The quality of the burger was sub-par. The meat wasn't cooked properly and the tomato was huge. The only good things were the bacon and lettuce. Not worth the price. $5 with a can of soda.
