Here's what some of our reviewers had to say about their burgers:
Sides 6.5 out of 10
In keeping with its no-nonsense menu selection, Chris Madrid's offers only fries as a side. Onion rings and tater-tots are, sadly, nowhere to be found. While the fries we had were quite delicious, the lack of options really drove the score down.
No love for the Lakers in San Antonio (below).Chris Madrid's is an ideal place for large groups. There is plenty of seating inside, and they have a nice outdoor patio that is perfect for a cool summer night.
We had not seen a Ms. Pac-man/Galaga arcade game since our visit to Fuddruckers a couple of months ago, so we were excited to find this little baby tucked away in the restaurant. It is not quite the Ms. Pac-man/Galaga combo that we've seen in several other burger joints (Fuddruckers, Uncle Barneys, Lucky's and Longhorn Cafe), but it sure is close.
Service - Very Good
This is a classic burger joint, so what would you expect for service? I think the Chief Justice sums it up best, "The service is great - they can spit out literally hundreds of burgers an hour." What more could you want?
Price - Very Reasonable
How much would you be willing to pay for the perfect burger? Surprisingly, you can purchase one for about 5 bucks and some change. Apparently, perfection does have its price.
Chris Madrid's takes the top spot on the burger blog for now, but our mission is to find the best burger and burger joint in San Antonio. The best burger may still be out there, and we won't rest until we've searched every burger joint in town for it.
We still have over 50 burger joints in San Antonio left on our list to try, but up to this point Chris Madrid's is El Rey.
