My family and I stopped here for lunch on our way to Fajardo. I had the jalapeno stuffed cheese burger. It was pretty good. It was not the best burger I ever had in my life but it was good. The chocolate milkshake was delicious!...More

Hand packed fresh burgers. Be prepared to wait. History not created in a minute. A must stop for you visit to the Kiosks

Being frequent customer, we always revisit El Jefe during trips to Puerto Rico. It never disappoints. Food is always delicious and fresh, service is always a bit slow, but its always worth the wait. Keep up the good work.

Burgers, mojitos, jungle juice, fried fish sandwich, great french fries and the housemade 1000 island dressing made for a fantastic lunch at El Jefe. Don't miss this kiosk.
