It was a warm day in San Jose del Cabo, and so we ducked into Retro, climbed the "Stairway to Heaven," and sat at a table where we were served by a delightfully charming waitress. Happy Hour (12-5 from what I recall) was underway and the 50% drinks selection was very nice. Two of us had margaritas, while the other... More

buzzing and lively burger/sports bar. Great prices, good choice of beers and other drinks and the food ain't bad either! Taco's were great and came with all the trimmings, but the burgers are what you go for. Well worth a visit!

The mushroom cheeseburger was awesome, and the Bruce Lee chicken sandwich was the best chicken sandwiches my husband had ever had! My son was happy with his footlong hot dog and his rootbeer float. Also, they had MLB on TV which... More

I was shocked when my favorite hamburger had a change in its recipe. The Lamborghini was modified with too many ingredients that covers the lamb taste and its original sauce. Please come back to the original one!!!!

This place is on top of Don Sanchez restaurant in downtown San Jose. We had a great burger and chilled out for awhile. The only draw back was several stairs to climb, which they call the stairway to heaven.

Prices are excellent for both food and drink. It has a nice bar and attractive tables for both inside and outside dining. The staff is professional, giving good service. Rest rooms are clean and modern. The burgers are, well, luscious. Stop in for a brew and a burger. It is right down town but a tad hard to find as... More

We stopped in for a cold beverage after a day of walking in San Jose. We had 2 Corona's & 2 Margaritas and an order of Fish Tacos - cost us $13 usd. The service was great. Very clean place and the fish tacos were amazing. Would definitely go back and recommend.
