Last weekend I was in San Antonio, and I have been there hundreds of times, eating at many of the cities best Mexican restaurants. I did an internet search of best food in San Antonio and the name Chris Madrid’s ranked very high and it offered something besides Mexican food. Hamburgers!

I clicked the website

Upon review of the website I thought, “It looks basic!” The story of entrepreneurship and the longevity of the place made me want to give it a try. I love independent business! It is the life of America.  I must say that when I arrived, I thought the place looked average.

This is the outside of Chris Madrid’s.



Upon entering Chris Madrid’s, I knew something special was about to present itself to me by the crowd of people sitting, and the long lines of people waiting to order food.

Crowds and Line



So I approach the menu and my eye catches a burger called the Tostada burger. This burger has refried beans, chips, salsa, meat, and cheese. I added my own pico de gallo. I opted for the 1/2 pound Macho size. This burger was HOT! I have never had a burger so fresh that my hands had trouble picking it up due to temperature. The meat was bursting with flavor, the cheese was flowing like lava, the beans, salsa, and chips inside gave it a crunch style in its own league. It was A plus, fantastic!

If you are in San Antonio, and want fantastic burgers, or nachos, do give Chris Madrid’s a try. I am a foodie with a taste for great food, and Chris Madrid’s has it going on. You will not be let down, and your stomach will not leave on empty. Chris Madrid’s is located less than three miles from the river walk and downtown San Antonio on Blanco and Hollywood.
