Great burger, amazing fries, cozy location. Very messy though - I had a hamburger with mayo and I had to use a ton of napkins. Also, it would help to have some English translation. Only one of the staff members spoke English and though I was clearly awful with my Spanish communication and I'm sure they knew, I was served... More

We stopped in for a quick bite after our flight from Bogota was delayed. I had a cheeseburger with bacon, since bacon makes everything better along with fries. Everything came out quickly and was tasty. I ate alone since hubby wasn't hungry. As compared to Home Burger in Bogota, Chef Burger was better. Home Burger was a bit salty in... More

I have tried different kinds of burgers here and I have to say that they are delicious. Even the classic cheese burger with bacon is so good. Love the french fries and their different variations. Tip: even though the restaurant has quite a few tables, get there early cause it gets packed fast.

The service was excellent. The rustic french fries were chunky, crispy and very good. The burger was cooked to order and had great flavor. The only thing I was disappointed with was the avocado on the burger. I think it was a Brazilian avocado? Very large and lacking flavor. I will definetly come back to Chef Burger but next time...

I consider myself a frequent burger eater, and I must say, these hamburgers are very tasty. They have a wide variety and their service is pleasant. Although I recommend the one in Tesoro mall better than the one off Poblado, there are lots of weirdo's there.

Have now been here three times on various trips to Medellin. Burgers are fantastic and authentic American style with Guldens mustard and Heinz ketchup. You have to try the rustic fries as a side. Sauces on point! You have to try this place.

If you're craving a good quality hamburger, this is the place. Kinda tucked away behind a building on a side street. Keep walking up Calle 11A and you will spot it. I ordered the Avocado bugs and it was pretty perfectly cooked. My friend had the Thai burger and she loved it as well. Good atmosphere with hip music. Bon... More

When it was recommended that we go out for Burger's in Colombia I was a bit skeptical. This restaurant made me a believer that a great Burger can be found in this wonderful city. I had the mixed beef and pork burger and fries which were amazing. The setting is peaceful and relaxing and the service excellent. I would not... More

Put on my slippers and call me Tony, what a burger! We walked for about 15 minutes for this burger but, Jiminy Christmas I would have walked 500 miles and I would have walked 500 more just to be the man who walked a thousand miles to fall down at the door of this quaint little burger joint, booyah baby!...
