“save your money”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

took my wife and brother there since it was the #1 place on el salvador according to trip advisor
the place looks like it was decorated with a $100 budgets : the tables are used cable rails , the glasses for your soft drinks are used mayo vases , etc
the burgers are around $10 to $13 , which is overprice for a burguer in el salvador,
they are big which is good but the taste is nothing great or special, maybe the genious chef that everybody talks about was off that day , we spent about $40 on 3 burguers and soft drinks , for that kinda money , im not going back to find out
much better places for your money

The place is great! The food is espectacular, and even though they have a variety of different plates, the burger is by far my favorite.

“Best Burger in town by far!!!”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

I give it five stars for the taste but they need to move to a bigger place. It is not a hidden jewel anymore, it´s worth the waiting time though.
