“Stop and be surprised at the great food.”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

They take major credit cards, have angus burgers like the U.S.!
Spouse had the pork ribs and was so surprised how tender and good they were, came with salad and fries. Very good fries and assortment of beers, great strong coffee, etc.
We have passed this place on the highway numerous times but since the parking is towards the rear it looks empty.
They have desserts too.
Be surprised and enjoy!

“Excellent burgers but the cochinita pibil sandwich Rocks”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

My family and I went to this burger place by accident. We were all glad we did. We had a mix of burgers and the pulled pork (Pibil) sandwiches. The service was excellent. They offer a selections of rolls which are very tasty. The toppings were all fesh and included avocado. The pulled pork sandwich has the Mayan pink pickled onion on it.

We will be back to the burger stop this trip!

“A wonderful relatively cheap food destination in a resort location!”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

We went to the Burger Stop almost every day while we staid at the Amarte Hotel next door (we staid there for about 2 weeks).

The food was great and the prices were cheap, especially considering that the restaurant is located within a resort location.

The menu was in both Spanish and English, thus, not being from a Spanish speaking background, we were still able to order with no problem.

The staff were also very friendly. Since we visited the Burger Stop so often (sometimes more than once a day), after some time the manager started giving us discounts of 10% for our orders.

I would recommend this place to anybody staying at Amarte or nearby hotels, or even just anybody passing by. Happy!

“Great Food & Great Prices!!”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

The service at the Burger Stop was excellent and the food was great!! We stayed a few resorts down the road. After eating one night at our resort for outrages prices, we were happy to find this restaurant. We could feed a family of five for about 40 dollars. So needless to say, once we found this place, that was our normal stop for dinner for the rest of the week. It wasn't until the last day when we found out that they also served breakfast. (wish we would of noticed that sooner) The staff was friendly, restrooms were clean, and the food was delicious! I would recommend this place to everyone.

“Best burgers on the Riveria Maya”
Reviewed 7 February 2013 via mobile

Saw the Burger Bar from Mexico Highway 307. We stopped because the building looked so nice and we were ready for a good burger. We were not disappointed. I must admit I was a little skeptical....because I do not eat meat. This was not a problem. They have delicious chicken breast burgers as well as salads. Also, you do get your choice of buns....regular, sesame, and wheat. The Burger Bar is located on the east side is the street.....south of the Grand Mayan Resort entrance.
