Loved this place, everyone spoke English, burgers were good,but fries were the best I've had in the week I've been here. Will be going back for breakfast I got one more week.

“Best veggie burger in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

The group I was with (family and friends) were making regular burgers in the condo. We could not find veggie burgers in the local Super Mercado. We stumbled across Papas and Burgers by accident. We got a veggie burger and fries for takeaway. It was very well executed. Great flavors, textures and large enough portion size to have seconds for lunch the next day. This review may not mean much for meatatarians, but if their meat burgers are half as good as the veggie, you can’t go wrong. The fires were pretty good, too.

“Super awesome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

This place is cheap, yummy, and the staff are awesome. The restaurant is attached to the hostel but don't let that deter you (just encourage you!). The food is great if you are looking for a well crafted cheeseburger or sandwich and some yummy fries! It isn't a michelin star dining experience but hits the spot super hard.
The staff, however, are where its at. Really friendly, unpretentious, laid back and helpful. Great place to stop on the way to or from the beach!
