This place is simply awesome. We had the cheese burger they are famous for, the macho nachos, and fries. Everything was fantastic. The atmosphere at the restaurant is great. It's a fun place.

We are always searching for the unusual and hidden jewels of a restaurant. We saw a advertisement for Chris Madrid, saying it was one of the top burger spots in Texas. Well, good enough for us! Off we went. Parking was at a premium and the location was in a scary part of town. Nevertheless, we proceeded inside and got... More

Great restaurant, when we lived in San Antonio, we ate there at least once every couple of weeks. Since we have moved away from SA, we always make sure we eat there when we return to visit friends. The food is wonderful, and atmosphere is great. Plenty of seating indoors and out. It is a little out of the main... More

In town for a short visit & wanted a good burger. Changed my mind when I saw the tostadas & nachos. Had one order of each and they were great. The veggies were fresh and the taste was awesome.

The burgers are really some of the best in town and reasonable as well. The beer is the coldest in town and good selection as well.

You must try this place. Small simple menu but BIG flavor. 1/2 pds are BIG, the buns are grilled just right. Great cantina choices try the mango margaritas, well actually anything will work. Inside or outside seating, if weather good sit outside but a lot of flies at times. Juicy burger, great choices.

We love Chris Madrid's... They are military friendly! During lunch they are always busy so just expect it. The line will give you time to review the menu and start your taste bud watering. Get the Porky's with American cheese. It comes with cheddar cheese but we like American cheese on it.

I have been a customer of Chris Madrid's since 1995. I have been to other burger places that profess to be like Chris Madrid's. While they are similar, the others fall short when it comes to variety, size and GREAT TASTE!!!! Combine it with an order of fries and you have the best comfort food in all of San Antonio!!... More

Wow this place was amazing! We went while vacationing in San Antonio and were so glad we did. The place was super packed and waited 30 mins after ordering to get our food and after eating there we now know why. It was awesome! I got the jalepano cheese burger which was amazing! My husband got the cheddar Cheesey burger... More

We enjoyed our visit to Chris Madrid's.. I had the Macho nachos, and they were the average bean and cheese nacho. My daughter had the Cheezy Burger and fries, and while it was good, it was rather greasy. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was fun. Overall it's a good once in a while place, but it's not anything... More
