Pretty Good Burgers – After seeing some of the reviews on this place I figured I had to try it, but when I got there I was hesitant to go in because the building looked like it might fall in on itself and I was a bit concerned for my safety.
I'm glad I got over those things, because inside it is much nicer, and the food was worth the travel. Good burgers and fries.
Best burger place in san antonio – The burgers are great, the staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is kickin. Hands down, best place in san anto
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this place – Awesome food & Staff! I always have a blast here & NEVER leave hungry, I highly recommend this restaraunt & ask to meet Chris when you go, he's a great guy!
Very Great tasting burger! I LOVE the Cheddar Cheesy Burger! – This place is absolutely amazing. They have awesome tasting burgers and fries. I personally prefer the Cheddar Cheesy Burger. Yes, the burger is a bit greasy but it is delicious!
boo to chris madrid's – 5 star ratings? Really?
I guess this place revolves around recreating a Whataburger, and makes no effort at anything else on the menu. While my other half tried a burger, which arrived dripping in grease, I ordered the chalupas, which turned out to be nothing more than a public school cafeteria effort. But the fries were what disappointed me the most.... I mean, if you're going to tout yourself as a burger joint, then I say your de rigeur side item must be top notch, or at least cooked. Our "fresh cut fries" arrived not fully cooked, greasy and unsalted.
Don't understand the popularity and appeal. – I really don't understand the popularity and appeal of this place. It is always crowded and busy - the parking is terrible. But mainly, their burgers are grotesquely huge, disgusting, greasy and the fries aren't allthat great either. Maybe it's because they are considered on the cheaper side, but seriously - why does anyone eat here?! I much prefer Bigz Burgers Joint on Loop 1604 and Bitters.
The Hamburger is very good all – The hamburger is not very good. The bread falls apart when you pick it up. The meat is bigger than the bun.
Good burgers, friendly staff, need to visit at least once – I decided to go here finally after reading so much about it. We went on a Tuesday afternoon before a Spurs game, so the place was pretty much empty. The staff was extremely friendly, even the busboys and the cleaning lady. They were all willing to help me figure out where I needed to go to order, where to pick up my food, where the restrooms were. I ordered a tostada burger, my wife ordered the Jalape?o burger; and we both ordered some regular fries (which was quite a large portion, big enough for the two of us and our young daughter). I admit I was skeptical of eating a tostada burger, but it was actually really good. I tried putting some ketchup on it, and then some of the fresh salsa. I recommend using the fresh salsa. It sounds odd, but trust me, it?s better than ketchup (think about eating ketchup with beans, blah). The burger was bigger than the bun, it was drenched in cheese. I?m a healthy eater, but it was my monthly date to splurge. They toasted the buns quite nicely, which prevents them from getting soggy. The fries were so-so, not to die for. The taste of the meat was good, but yes quite greasy. I did leave full, definitely. I believe that Burger Tex in Austin (off of Airport Blvd) has the absolute best hamburger in all of TEXAS, and I was hoping for something similar here at Chris Madrid?s (since I now live in San Antonio). Burger Tex is still better by far, but Chris Madrid?s will hold me over until then. I liked how totally unassuming the exterior of this restaurant is. It looks like some run-down old business with an over-sized parking lot. But once you walk through the doors, you?re surprised by how large it is, and the atmosphere is very welcoming and just flat out Texan. You need to drop by here at least once, maybe after spending a day at the Zoo, and walking around Brackenridge Park (just a few miles east). I?ve heard it?s busy, so maybe try to go when I did (during the week, after lunch rush, before dinner rush).
OVERRATED HAMBURGERS – They have great customer service, but the hamburgers are overrated. The hamburgers are too greasy and so are the fries. The burgers have a good taste, but its not worth the wait or drive. Whataburger or Burger King taste better and are way less greasy.
YUM YUM – BEST BURGER, I got the toastada burger, It had a moat of gooey cheese surrounding the burger. You've seen the TACO BELL commercial where tha girl bites the taco and she has a trail of cheese leading from the taco to her mouth, It really is like that. One recommendation get your fries extra crisp otherwise they do tend to be kinda greasy.
