I tried the tostada burger on the advice of friends. The cheese overwhelmed, melted and "ran over" the burger completely. My burger and every burger eaten by my 3 friends were greasy, "slippery" and could not be consumed by picking up the burger. Knives and...More

We love Chris Madrid's and you will too. You order your food at the counter and grab a beeper and a seat while it is quickly made. Knowing it takes longer to prepare chicken, so typically during rush periods, a staffer will walk the line...More

A friend recommended this place & I'm so glad they did. We walked in, ordered our burgers and in less then 10 min we were feasting on tastey burgers and fries.

We went in for lunch and shared a burger with the beans stuff on it without a bun (no gluten free options) and some fries. Kids got a cookie. It was so pricey for everything. Fries were ok. Burger was a pile of mess on...More

This was recommended to us by a local. Portions are large so go hungry. The hamburgers are great and so are the Tostadas. It's a different twist on a hamburger. Quick service and layed back.

Always busy but worth the effort. This place rocks for couples or parties. The food is wonderful and the menu is extensive. One of the top 5 burger places in town. NOT a chain and reasonably priced. Enjoy.

I don't think they do. I don't recall that being offered on their menu. But the burgers are so good what about using the lettuce as a wrap?
