“Tasty little Ex Pat Refuge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

It is a toy place with a full bar, good TV’s showing sports and home made custom burgers coming off the grill. It is full of Canadian, American and other foreign 20-30 something surfers for the most part. Thus, it is not “authentic” Nica, but it is a raucous good time and a great spot to hang out and catch the “big game”.

“Great food, great music and the best vibe in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Nacho libre has just nailed it! All of the finer details that make an otherwise regular burger joint extraordinary have been meticulously considered and executed to perfection. First of. All of the ingredients are fresh in the food and cocktails. Even the French fries are cut in house and then seasoned with garlic salt. The music selection is always fantastic. You'll find yourself tapping your toes as you sip a cocktail waiting for your food. A must see in San Juan and I personally will return again and again. Ask them about the paprika

“Best burger in Nicaragua!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

My husband is a burger aficionado. If there is a burger on the menu, he orders it. So we had to try Nacho Libre which has the reputation for great burgers. And indeed it lived up to its reputation. Everything from burgers with sun dried tomatoes (my favorite) to blue cheese and onion burgers. If you love burgers you gotta try this place!

“Good spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Went here twice over a couple of days. Both times were very good. Tasty good cooked on a BBQ. Good atmosphere. Small place. I had the Big Wang burger which was spicy but strongly recommended.
