Smoke pours from this wooden burger shack from before noon through late evening every day, and from the counter issue juicy grilled burgers and flavorful hot dogs, golden onion rings and fries, and freezing cold beer. A favorite stop for hungry sanjuaneros, whether they’re right from the beach or on the way out to party, El Hamburger always attracts a crowd. Part of the appeal may be the brash salsa blaring from the jukebox and the wooden walls covered with posters of Puerto Rican pop stars from across the years. There's also generous condiment selection, a rarity in Puerto Rico, not to mention the ocean breeze and the picture postcard scene of the palm trees on Atlantic bluff outside. You may try, but once bitten, it's hard to pass this tasty bargain up.
