“OK Burgers, but there are better, less expensive options”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

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.

“Nice burgers”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

They have very nice burgers which are definitely more upscale compared to the average fast food chain. In the Oviedo Shopping mall you will also find a large seating area and they have very nice salads and smoothies. It's not the cheapest place around, but prices are not over the top either.

“Rare Place for Salads”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Well located in the Oviedo Mall adjacent to the Sheraton, this higher-end version of the ubiquitous chain offered a nice selection of salads, something that we craved after a week of fish and other proteins. It is not easy to get salads readily in Colombia we found and this was a welcome opportunity to fulfill our craving.
