We had read great reviews about Jefe Burger and made it a point to stop in on our first full day in Puerto Rico. If we had known the wait would be so long, we would have eaten a big meal beforehand.

This was a wonderful experience! We were guided to this restaurant by the concierge at Rio Mar and it didn't disappoint! The bacon wrapped dates should not be missed! We got a burger and the sampler platter and were more than pleased with both! This is a must for anyone wanting a burger in Puerto Rico!

This place has one of the best hamburgers in town. Drinks and beer plentiful. Very good service. But the wait for your food to be served is unacceptable. Get their phone number, call and place your order well in advance and you will then be able to enjoy the excellent burger.

I love burgers and I *LOVE* El Jefe's Burgers. Get the sampler for a few bites of their specialties. The fries and drinks are superb. The owner is *very* knowledgable and has trained his staff just right. Be prepared to wait for your burger, though. They're made to order, but the awesomness is worthwhile!

The salad was very good, and my husband loved the burgers, but they have a small kitchen so service is very slow. Beer selection is great.
