This is the spot and you have to get the Macho. Incredible Hamburger with tons of cheese, tortillas, and re fried beans. The atmosphere is authentic and the French fries are the best. You won't be disappointed.

We went to lunch expecting great burgers and fries as we heard that that it had one of the best burgers in San Antonio. We were disappointed in both. You need to stand in line to order your food, which was efficient, and then pickup your order (gave you a buzzer when you ordered). Order was available within 10 minutes...excellent!... More

I recently moved to San Antonio and have been trying a lot of non-chain restaurants. The food so far has been great but I haven't taken the time to review any restaurant on TripAdvisor, yet. However, today I had one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. The meat tasted delicious fresh ingredients and the ambiance is very cool.... More

Whenever we visit San Antonio, we have a meal at Chris Madrid's. Be prepared for big crowds on the weekends and a tight ordering area. The burgers are excellent, with fresh toppings and a toasted bun. But our favorite has to be the bean chalupas - YUM! It's a big, noisy place with lots of families and friends enjoying the... More

The burgers here are amazing! Unlike other burgers that you can't even get your mouth around, these burgers are horizontally huge, but vertically viable - you can actually enjoy the great flavors on the burger without having to unhinge your jaws. My only comment where there is room for improvement would be the fries; they were a bit greasy, but... More

This hole in the wall restaurant has been my favorite eating place for over 30 years. The burgers are a great deal for the money, a basket of fries can feed at least two - so can the regular sized burger. They also have a full service bar tucked in the back. There is a porch for outside dining and... More

We took our basketball team to Madrid's and were treated wonderfully. They got us in and out quickly and the burgers were great. I recommend going Macho with any burger they have. Meat and cheese overflowing the bun!! Great stuff.

This place is the real deal! There are plenty of good burger joints around but if you want something unique and outrageously good, you HAVE to try the Macho Tostada Burger! It may require a knife and fork because it is so big. Smeared with refried, chips and mass of cheese, awesome! Add some of there salsa and pico and... More
