“Believe the reviews!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Saw the reviews on Trip Advisor so we made the trek from the Walled City to Bocagrande. And yes, it was worth it! Excellent gourmet hamburgers in a very non-fast food setting. Burgers are pricey at US$ 10-12 (with fries) but EVERYTHING in Cartagena is more expensive than the rest of the Colombia. Beef is very high quality as are the creative toppings. The La Placita, their signature burger, weighs in at 220 grams and is stuffed with cheddar cheese. Fries are delicious and very crispy. So a hamburger joint ended up being our best meal in Cartagena...

“Like Red Robin, only way tastier!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

They seem to be only open for dinner, which is too bad, but this place is definitely worth a try! Unpretentious and cheery decor and a straightforward menu in both english and spanish. Had a cheeseburger (natch) and it was Phenomenal. The buns are homemade, soft and fresh. The fries were excellent too! The beer could have been a touch colder, but that is just a tiny blemish on an otherwise perfect meal. We will be back!

“If you like burgers... it's a MUST!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

I definitely loved La Placita Burger Bar. I've been in the "Santa Marta Placita", and it is great. As soon as I knew they opened one in Cartagena, I had to come! They have a good variety of burgers that are all delicious. Every time I come here, I try a different burger and I haven't been disappointed!
