We were looking for a good burger and boy did we find some! Not a fancy place, but very unique. Established in 1977, there is a reason why they are still in business. The burgers and nachos were simply delicious. We arrived around 2:00 and there was a line out the door. Once we placed our order the food was... More

We went to Chris Madrid's on recommendation of locals. There burgers are great. They are not very thick but are about 5-6 inches in diameter. Recommend the cheddar burger. And their cookies are delicious, but they seem to run of them quickly. Outside dining is community dining on long picnic tables. Fun place.

Wow, what a great burger, just the right amount of greasiness, with melting cheddar cheese. The service is superb. Everyone was pleasant and happy that we were there. This place knows that the consumer has choices..

We finally went to Chris Madrid's last evening. We heard about the fabulous burgers for five years. We should not have waited. We were met by the owner half-way through the large dining area. We discussed it was our first time. He escorted us to the ordering area, took a menu and explained it to us. We promptly told him... More

I couldn't wait to return to this burger joint. This place is really interesting. The burgers are huge. I suspect it can get a bit crowded but they seem to have a system to work you through in good order. The bar is located on the other side if you want a margarita with your meal. This is a must...
