Burger was great, service was good! However, keep an eye on your purse! I hung mine on the back of my chair and never saw it again. I was told by the owner, it happens quite often :-(

Food was adequate...not bad but if you are thinking about going here be prepared for "fair at best" service and food that was marginal. We were the only people eating in the restaurant at 8:30 pm on a Saturday night. I would venture to guess that our food took 45-60 min to prepare.

If you come to Puerto Rico, be prepared to WAIT for food. Everything is slow in P.R., so it's not uncommon to wait 45 min or more before you receive your food. Be patient, because the food is worth it! We may have visited El Jefe on a "bad" day, but we waited well over an hour for 2 burgers.... More

Lunch of burgers and fries. The burgers were excellent, the fries were terrible. Service was quite slow.

One of several Luquillo kiosko's, we've eaten at over the years. The service is always slow, and this year our burgers were disappointing. They were not cooked to order and the onion wedges, which we look forward to, were cold & greasy. That said, to the credit of the manager/owner (?), I was served another burger & onions on the...

Ordered a mango margarita - no flavor, asked for a different drink - got attitude. Food took nearly 50 minutes to arrive, there was only one other table of customers

They have great stuffed burgers! The place looks a bit dark, but if you sit out side in the back it is a very nice experience.

My husband and I were ready for some burgers. The burgers were good, but we waited an hour and a half for our food. There were only four tables occupied when we arrived. The wait staff tried, but the kitchen wasn't getting the food out. Would not recommend this restaurant. Too bad, there are so many great ones in Luquillo.

There were only a few tables with people, not a busy day, yet we just waited 1 hour for food. And, after all that, it tasted horrible. $10 sandwich that should've been $5 at most. Not recommended.
