I know, I know, I didn't come to Oaxaca to eat burgers but after weeks of traditional Oaxacan cuisine I was craving something different. I arrived Friday afternoon at lunch time to find the lovely restaurant completely empty. Kind of sad in light of the...More

Awesome burger, friendly and quick service. Thick, juicy beef patty and super fresh ingredients make for a great meal.

We first ate at El Quinque in 2014. Had the Milenesa. In 2016 we had the arrechera. Going again in three weeks. This is the first place we will go! Delicioso!

Mainly by default... it's the only decent looking burger we saw in the city, but they make a great classic beef burger, meat cooked to perfection with potatoes on the side. A great break from Mexican food, and awesome conversation & hospitality from Carlos

A small unpretentious place with a very simple menu but everything is delicious, portions are generous and prices are very good. We had the hamburger and the steak and both were great. Come with a salad, skillet potatoes, guacamole, and assorted vegetables, depending on the...More

Really terrific flank steak dinner in a quiet neighborhood. I ate here four times, loved the food, loved the music playlist. Nice quiet neighborhood.

It wasn't our first time eating here and for a reason. You can always expect good service and generous, tasty food. The place also allows you to bring your own wine. Situated in my favourite part of Oaxaca.
