We visited here this week. It is a very casual restaurant. Good food and service. Burgers come with lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles served on the side. You have a choice of three cheeses. French fries and onion rings were excellent. Very popular with the locals. Parking lot is always crowded. We parked on a side street. Our lunch which... More

A local institution, this open air burger shack looks a little rough, but you won't be disappointed in the food or service. It's almost like your backyard BBQ under a roof. Can get very warm or smoky inside, but its definitely worth it. Go in shorts & flip flops. Prices are ultra reasonable and the waitstaff will appreciate even modest... More

My husband insisted on going to Elhamburgers because of the reviews here on trip adviser. Our kids and I are picky and loved this place- 4 of us ate and filled up on a 21.00 bill. The service was quick for us- must try it- excellent ! Fresh fresh fresh!

Yes, it looks like a shack, but do yourself a favor and go in anyway! Mini burgers made-to-order, add bacon and cheese and they all come with a side of lettuce, tomato pickle and onion. As a special treat order the fries with cheese and bacon - awesome!

In walking distance from some hotels. Good food, cheap in cost :) Serice is a little slow due to luch hour rush. Friendly but no A/C so you may be hot. But overall worth it and would eat there again.

Move over In N Out and Five Guys. This place is so authentic you can almost hear the roosters crowing next door; actually we might have. Your burger may take a hot minute, but when it does, it's worth the wait!
