“When You Want a Burger...”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

Cold beer. Juicy burgers. Spicy chilidogs. Quick service. When that is what you want and you are in the Condado area of San Juan, then Buns is the place!

“Hits the spot”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

This place hits the spot if you are looking for an old standby (burgers, fries and shakes) in the world of Puerto Rican food around you. (Not as great as Five Guys, I think.) There is a beer bar there. Location is across the street from the Marriott hotel, right on Ashford Avenue.

“Excellent burger joint!”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

We visited on a Saturday afternoon. After we placed our order, we were given a thingamajig that vibrates when your order is ready so you can go wander around instead of just standing there. Our order was ready pretty fast. We loved our food! It was fresh and tasty. My husband had a double cheeseburger with added mushrooms and I had the classic burger, the buns are so good! I thought the shake was expensive ($5.40) but after tasting it, it was well worth the price. We shared the cajun fries, the order is big enough for 2. The fries are hand cut, so good. We sat outside, the restaurant is extremely clean inside and out, including the bathrooms. The oatmeal cookie is also big enough for 2. We are definitely going back, we'll try the hot dogs the next time :)

“Condado surprise”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

While on the beach at the Marriott we got the hungrys and tried Buns for hot dogs. They were excellent. The next day we tried their burgers which were also excellent. The big surprise, however, was the wide selection of bottled craft beers from all over and the good selection of local draft beers. Worth a visit.

“Good for lunch”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

Grabbed two burgers and fries to go for lunch at Buns burger shop to take back to the bed & breakfast we were staying at right around the corner. The burgers were pretty good, loved the sauteed onions and the fries were the fresh cut boardwalk style which the hubby loved but are to greasy for me. Buns is great for a quick bite.
