This place is a hidden gem. Me and my boyfriend wanted a change from the usual tacos, rice and beans so we found this lovely place on trip advisor that specializes in burgers! I had the western, which was amazing. The caramelized onions melt in...More

I don't eat more than two burgers a year so I'm pretty critical. Had a California burger. Very tasty. Well seasoned and marinated meat, decent bread. Highly recommendable.

Jack himself is an interesting character, the night we came in we were the only customers at the time (near close) and we sat down for a long old chat. I figured that someone that moves away from their homeland to establish a burger joint...More

For many a month Don Jack's remained uncharted territory, a location of intrigue; a pirate's flag marking the spot from the outside, and passing by in the morning, -usually the wee hours- the gates to Don Jack's galley remained shut; and the secret of the...More

We have already visited this small restaurant several times during our stay in Leon, Nicaragua. We bumbed into this place by accident when we were searching for some food. It's a very nice place to eat. The owner Jack is very kind and cooks everything...More

Jack serves up a terrific burger, and plenty of other tasty dishes! I ate there regularly while in Leon, and never had anything other than a great experience at this place. A good spot to meet other tourists as well as locals.

You like a good burger? This place has got you covered. Good sized portions too. Nice laid back kinda atmosphere. I read some reviews about the owner being a bit of handful but I can't say that we experienced this at all. Seemed a nice...More

Got some burgers here which were really tasty, but unfortunately the experience was marred a little by the owner. The owner was standoffish and made us feel uncomfortable in his restaurant. There was another customer there at the same time who he chatted along to...More

We couldn't find anything on tripadvisor that really took our attention. So we just started walking and ended up here. Two other people were already eating and that looked more than delicious so we had to have that! When we got it it tasted like...More

Opening hours and days can be a bit erratic but when it's open it's absolutely worth visiting. 5 of us visited and every meal was big and fantastic.

We had a really good dinner at this restaurant last night and would like to review it on trip advisor. The owner, Jack, is canadian and has 25 years experience as a chef, and has lived in leon for 9 years. Menu was eclectic international food, including typical Nicaraguan, and we enjoyed probably the best meal we have had during our 3 months in Central America. Leon does not have regular addresses and 'Fte Clinica Mercedes' is their postal address! Please list so as I may review. Thanks.
