“Completely Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

There are a lot better burger joints in Medellin. Chef Burger, Barbacoa and The Grill Station all come to mind. I am dumbfounded why this place is so popular and has so many locations. The burgers are extremely overpriced. I think I paid $17 for a burger with guacamole in combo with fries and a drink.

Although tasty, it was definitely not on par with many other places in Medellin.

“Best Burger ever !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

When you travel in Colombia, in any City of this country, go to El Corral.
Order the CORRALISIMA Burger, they have 1/2 pound and 3/4 pound sizes + a humungus TODOTERRENO size (2 X 1/4 lb.)
It is a freshly grilled hamburger, with or without cheese, and a special BBQ sauce.
Order the French Fries, crispy and with a special taste, and try them with the BBQ sauce.
A delicious meal, fingerlicking good.
It is not the cheapest Burger, but very much worth the price.

“Very good burgers”

They made very good burgers. You can find it in different locations. If you have time, try the "Corralisima".
