Absolutely the Best Burger & fries in San Juan del Sur..As soon as the 'open' sign is lite, the place fills with locals & gringos alike... All sharing their Love for Great Burgers & Fries...What great place to meet other travelers & mingle with locals.

Even though I was the only one in the restaurant, the server completely ignored me. The fries were AMAZING! The bun was also very good. But, the meat on the burger was underwhelming. It wasn't exactly bad. But, it definitely wasn't anything special. It had the taste, texture and look of one of those 3rd rate patties bought in bulk... More

Nacho Libre has such a good vibe, day and night! Their wide selection of delicious hamburgers and fries with funny inuendos makes this restaurant one of my favorite spots to watch a sports event or have a beer for lunch with my friends. The service always comes with a smile and a warm vibe!

We had been craving a burger and this was the perfect spot! We each tried a different one -- there were so many good options. We sat up at the bar, as the place was pretty packed. Service was awesome too!

We went especially for the burgers. It was around $7 for the average burger which is more than most places we went in Nica. However the burgers were exceptionally nice and fresh and cooked with hand cooked chips(fries for Americans). It was disappointing that the beer was 40% more expensive than most other places and when asked about the beer... More

Went there with a friend and had an amazing night of Mexican wrestler masks and shots to go around. Went there a few months later and were treated like dirt and the service was horrible. One of the X factors was that the owners were there the first time and were not there the second. When the cat's away, the... More

I know the idea of a peanut butter burger sounds crazy but it's actually delcious. Nacho Libre is a super cool place and has a some unique burgers, definitely the best in San Juan del sur. The bartenders are super cool and talkative and overall the place provided a great experience.

This place does a decent burger. Interestingly named burgers with some pretty good combos. The seasoned fries are the best I've had in a good while.

If you like burgers you definitely have to go to Nacho Libre! The burgers were amazing, the menu was really fun and the staff was really nice. The music and the atmosphere were great. What else do you need to spend a nice evening? I'm still dreaming of their burgers so I would definitely recommend it if you ever happened... More
