This is such a bad restaurant that it is the first time in my life that I put a ''terrible'' rating, on TripAdvisor. Now, I don't know what kind of people can appreciate the burgers in... More

The hamburgers looked amazing and were more than enough for most. I was surprised when I first tried it as the texture seem weird and it tasted bland. I am a big eater and I just couldn't finish it do to the texture, even after adding a ton of ketchup to add flavor. The fries were good and they had... More

For the last 6 years this establishment has never served me up a bad burger. We usually get them to go for the beach. ( in Spanish you would say "para llevar" )

This is a great spot to stop after a day on the beach. The burgers really do look like the photo; Lots of great variations: Chicken Burgers, Shrimp Burgers, BBQ Burgers, Guacamole Burgers & nice salads too. Very casual atmosphere, COLD beer and the prices are easy on the wallet. And oh yeah, Micheladas and a full bar menu; RIBs... More

I'm a hamburger guy. Always looking for a great burger where ever we go. The place is off 5th Ave.had to look for it. The hamburger is good. Could have more fries. The chicken Alfredo was real good. Prices are more then far for what you get. We eat here again Every time we are in Playa del Carmen.

After a good party, you need sometimes a fat burger. There is burgers but I don't know where does come from the meat ? Maybe of a laboratory... Don't go in this restaurant...
