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!

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.

Absolutely the very best burger I've ever had. Friendly staff and very fast and reasonably priced food. The ocean is across the street so you can eat burgers and watch the surf.

Over the years this place has consistently deliver great burgers. I will not consider these as sliders but they are not a regular size burger either. The average guy will need 2 of these to satisfy his hunger but they are worth it. You can...More
