“Great Little Place! What They Do, They Do Well.”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

If you enjoy a good hamburger, and who doesn't(?), this could be the place for you. It has local charm, is informal, easy to get to (just blocks off Chapultepec). Only mild criticism is that there is no menu available and you get the selections, rapid fire! As good as my spanish is, I was left scratching my head. But menu is limited, and you can't go wrong. A big plus for many will be the beer selection which consists of product of microbreweries around the Republica Mexicana.

“wonderful hamburgers”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

As other people have written, if you are looking for an excellent gourmet hamburger come here. There is a good selection of artesenal beer too but no wine which is a shame. But despite the lack of wine its really worth coming and the hamburgers are very reasonably priced for their quality and variety.

“A great little place for a wonderful burger”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

We live here and finding Pig's Pearls was great! The owners and staff are thoughtful, know their menu and service couldn't be better. You might wait for a table, but believe me, it's worth it. Your burger with side of fries will cost you about $8... the same as you'd pay at Burger King for a Whopper delux...BUT.... Wow, what a difference. The bun isn't huge, but the burger is thick, juicy and made from excellent beef... you know, the kind with actual flavor. If you are looking for a good, casual dining experience, you couldn't find a better place to take your lover or friends for the evening. Space is tight, but everyone's friendly and you'll have a good time. Enjoy!!! We hope they stay around for a long time. It's nice to find a place with pride of ownership showing wherever you look.

This is my second review and after at least 20 visits they continue to be excellent and totally consistent...Everything is cooked perfectly regardless of how busy they are...It will keep me coming back and well worth a short wait when they are busy!!!
