I've eaten at a number of Corral restaurants throughout Medellin (mostly in Poblado). Once in a Blue Moon, when I get a craving for a burger, and a Corral is nearby, I will drop in. Over the past 5 years, I've eaten Corral burgers only 4 or 5 times because there are so many other better, and less expensive, options throughout greater Medellin. The Corral burgers are made from decent beef, but I like to remind the kitchen staffs to cook my burgers "medio" to keep them nice and juicy. If I don't, I risk eating a hamburger that is dry and overcooked. The burgers are smothered with condiments, onions, tomato, etc. which will help a dry burger go down easier. It's not unusual to pay COP$ 20,000 ($11 US) plus a few more thousand for a drink. This is definitely not the cheapest option for dining in Medellin... expecially when you can find daily platos del dia (complete lunches) for roughly one third the price of a Corral burger. Comparable burgers are available in many of the mom and pop burger joints for about half the price.
The Corral restaurants are nothing special. They are usually found in malls or as stand-alone operations with both inside and outside seating. The restaurants are kept very clean, and the staff provides a level of service commensurate with a fast-food restaurant.
If you need a burger fix, and you are "trapped" in a mall, a Corral burger will do in a pinch.
