An excellent, humble burger. If you're really hungry you might have to order two, but take it from a local, these are the best hamburgers in San Juan, possibly the entire island. Great for families, couples, or take-out. Apropriately priced, not cheap, but not expensive...More

You cannot come to Puerto Rico and not visit this iconic burger joint. Its is not Fancy, it has been renovated and fast service. Menu is not complicated and if you like burgers with bacon, the bacon here is tasty. Burgers are the right size...More

Great prices, good burger - the place is a definite hole in the wall, but for less than $10, it was a good meal - and lots of bacon on the burger!

Where the locals went to grab a very good burger. Do not be surprised if you see a little hamburger because is little but thick. Budget friendly!!!! Very important is to combine the burger with french fries and put a lot of ketchup on top...More

El Hamburger is one of the oldest restaurants in Puerto Rico for a good reason! These great little treats on a bun are just what a hungry man ordered, and the prices are so reasonable you will be begging for more!

This might be the best American burger joint in old San Juan, but if you've ever had a good hamburger, you are not going to be impressed.

Have to come here at least once every trip to Puerto Rico. Typical hamburger joint of mid 20th century U.S. Char broiled, almost like a meatball, and tasty. Good service, a bit hectic, but quality food. A must for lunch.

The food here is awesome. The burgers are super thick - almost like meatballs, the hot dog and mozzarella sticks were also great. Everything is very reasonable priced.
