We visited the one at the "golden mile" entrance to Oviedo & were impressed by the quality of the burger(much better & fresher than any of the big 3 burger chains in the U.S.) The fries were fresh, hot & tasty too ! Each burger is made to order. The day we had lunch there(sat.) a group of four(4) well-dressed... More

I think this hamburger's are good but for the price it's not the best they charge you for all additions like cheese, bacon, pineapple. I compare this hamburger's with another places and they really Spence for two small hamburger's and one salad 35.00 dollars it's to much.

The food at El Corral is good. But for the price I cannot say that I recommend it. A basic burger with guacomole and fries and a medium soft drink with no refills was close to 9 USD. Considering how far the US dollar can go in Colombia you could get 3 meals perhaps for that or a more filling... More

these guys burned my burgers a few times. after i complained, they only changed the bun but not the meat. i think that with their prices they should afford to change the burnt meat too. their burgers are still better than mcd and burger king but that isn't saying much since they are horrible in colombia. however, the reason i...

We went there for dinner and had a really excellent large plate of nachos, making it a complete meal. Hamurgers were also great

Good burgers, good fries and onion rings, and fast service. I wouldn't call El Corral burgers junk food -- their burgers are cooked to order with good ingredients, and tasty. The shakes are good too. As another reviewer commented, there is a lot more on offer than burgers. A burger combo will run you about $8, so it's not super-cheap,... More

i dont really eat very much at fast food places. But I heard good things about El Corral from locals, so I had to try it. I have to say, this was the best buger I have eaten so far. At least the best compared to the western brand of fast food places. And even some diners and restaurants here... More

Note: we ate at the El Corral inside Oviedo Mall, 2nd floor within quality restaurant area (not fast food area). There are many El Corral locations all over Medellin. The menu is huge, with a variety of Colombian & American dishes. It was hard to decide which tasty entree to order. I had two (unusual for me) large pork ribs... More

Fresh ingredients, nice taste, juicy meat, crunchy fries... You can find these sort of things here. I recommend the coffee milkshake (ask to add double coffee). You should try it if you like junk food.

This is a popular place for the locals, and the hamburgers are the real deal here. Prices reasonable, family friendly too.
