A lovely restaurant just a few minutes walk from our hotel, they specialised in burgers as the name of the restaurant suggested! Edward our waiter attended to us with loads of information about the food and history of San Juan. We had a most delightful meal washed down with a couple of local beers, Medalla! Would highly recommend this place... More

My wife and I ate here on a weeknight and it was not crowded. They have a blackboard where you build your burger. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Getting to know him, we got an education about Old San Juan. He has some excellent books to view while you wait.

I took my family here twice. The burgers are a little pricey but the options are numerous and original, and the food is so fresh and tastes natural. These burgers don't leave you hungry or feeling like you just put a brick in your stomach like fast-food places do. One-of-a-Kind!

Walked in this joint to kill an hour. So glad we did. They made their mixed drinks with freshly squeezed juices. And all for $3.. Ching-Ching!! Bartender I'll take another round please lol... The spot itself was decent. But for sure the best part was the service. Being from Chicago, I can really appreciate great service. So like 3 hours... More

If you're looking for a break from all the amazing Puerto Rican food OSJ has to offer then definitely check this place out. It's not your typical burger joint as everything (literally everything) is from scratch. As others have mentioned, you build your own burger by choosing a type of bun, meat, cheese and then various toppings. It's all a... More

Pretty much like everyone has said, the burgers are nice, the drinks are well priced, and it's a cool and unique spot. If you're in the area, you should stop by if you're a burger person. Now, with all this being said, the menu is a la cart. You pay a set price for the burger itself, but the add... More

Huge selection of burgers, you can pick from, a very genuine wall menu, or you can create your own. Also, great variety of, out of the ordinary drinks. If you want to try something different from the fast food joints, you need to pay a visit to Bristo Burger.
