Vast, flat, oversized patties overflowing with cheddar cheese are the stars at this San Antonio classic -- but I prefer the burger, so brown and salty, with just some american cheese. Whatever you get, you haven't been to SA without a visit.
To the environmently nightmare. I dont think you have a clue on how to run a business or how to save money to boot. If you have that much of a problem with it open your own resteraunt and try your own hand at it. other wise pull your thumb out of your a&s and comply with what they are doing or better yet dont disguard your trash in there, dispose of it your self. You recycle freak
enviromental nightmare!. It's so sad to see how many people are ignorant of the huge problems this "restaurant" generates. Drink cups and plates are exclusively stryfoam that are technically recyclable, but are sent to the landfill instead. This perverse owner could employ people as dishwashers, but instead chooses to throw everthing away. Any success this estabishment has is completely undeserved. The owner has obviously made a pact with the devil!
Great Burgers. I enjoy the great burgers and fries at Chris Madrids! This is one of my favorite places for lunch.
Depend the ocaction.
For a hambrger and french fry it is good.
For a nice lunch or diner: MESON EUROPEAN RESTAURANT OR LA CANARIA, Meson is romantic and good coktail at very good price, the food is very good. La Canaria We like the buffet.
The burgers are of average size; rather plain and a bit greasy. I had no problems with that, but the meat patty was too salty. It didn't matter that it was small or large....but it drives me crazy when restaurants add too much salt to the food. In this case the meat and fries.
I have eaten better burgers around town and across the country and I would not list this restaurant as the number one place in San Antonio to get a burger. Your better off going to DQ and ordering a hunger buster or something.
The service was slow the day I was there and it wasn't very crowded, but the staff was very friendly.
Why do people like this place soooo much?. It has always been a mystery to me as to why people love this place so much. I believe that San Antonio is not the healthiest of places when it comes to food choice. This can be blamed on the population itself. The only comments that I ever hear about this place is that the burgers are hugh. Large portion size should not be the only thing that someone should look at when suggesting a place to eat. The burgers here are super greasy, and piled up high with bacon & cheese if you please. I have had way better burgers at Order Up which has a larger selection as to what can be added to the burger. Chris Madrids had me tasting a heart attack after 1/4 of the burger. It was gross and I couldn't think about eating another bite! My friend also ran over a nail in the so called "parking lot".
Good, not great. I'm not a big fan of burgers that are squished flat so all the juicyness is gone. Yes, these burgers are "super cheesy" but the meat at the core is weak. The load of cheese drowns out the flavor of the burger. This is a good burger, even better than average due to the fixings, but it's the meat that must make a burger great. Not S.A.'s best burger, but it's in the top five. (along with 5 guys, Bob's, Chester's and Biff Buzby's)
What's the big deal?.
I have yet to figure out what is the big deal with Chris Madrids.... I wanted to figure it out for myself and sometimes the truth hurts. I have worked my way down through all their menu. I must tell you that their beef is the most un-appealing piece of meat that has ever been in my stomach. Very unsavory, not spiced very well and extremely greasy. Seriously this place makes my stomach hurt (their meat that is). The first time I though it was not a big deal, i didn't think that I was aching because I ate their burger, but after the 2nd time to feel the exact same way, coincidence? I think not. I learned my lesson the hard way and so now If i need to eat something from there, i settle for their chalupas (meatless that is) w/beans, lettuce, tomatoe, and cheese. Besides their ugly meat, everything else is alright. Its a nice place to gather around with your friends, they have a cute patio and you could enjoy a spurs game by the bar.
But I still think it is ridiculous to think this place have "amazing, savory, authentic" burgers... don't even bother calling Food Network's Guy Fieri... don't waste his time and don't embarrass this town on a national level.
My favorite burger joint since the 1980's. I have been coming here for what 29 years (OMG)! Love the place love the good...... Like you Chris and family. You know the secret right? Keep up the good work!!!
BEST burgers in SA!. Chris Madrid's is the best burger in San Antonio! Neighborhood a bit run-down as well as the exterior of the restaurant, but once you get inside, it is nicer - and the food is awesome!!! Cheddar burger the best EVER!
