Puerto Vallarta has so many great restaurants. Some specialize in steak, others in shrimp, and there are many countries whose palates are represented, from Middle Eastern and Chinese to Eastern European and South American. Since people love polls as much as they love hamburgers, regardless of their food culture, we have a list of some of the best places in Puerto Vallarta to fill your burger cravings.
Many restaurants were mentioned and we even heard about street burgers (just like street tacos) at the Pemex station on the corner of Francisco Madera and another at a stand over in the Agua Azul neighborhood. Not all serve fries with their hamburgers; some sell chips and some simply flip patties and that’s all you get.
We talked to some aficionados who favored pork in their burgers but dietary restrictions for health or religious reasons may prompt the diner to ask up front before ordering. Meatless burgers are also available at some of the local vegetarian restaurants but this article is devoted to beef.
Voters came up with a host of venues where good burgers can be found.
Derby City Burgers came in with the most hash marks, putting it in the number one position over competitors by a long shot. Raves were also made about their milk shakes. They’re right in the middle of the Romantic Zone and closed on Wednesdays. Their excellent salads are also worth mentioning.
Jean’s All American Hamburgers out at Marina Vallarta comes in at a close second with great reviews on a specialty that no one else in town seems to have a corner on; brisket. More than one reason to check out Jean’s, who we’ve heard hails from Seattle; they also have fabulous homemade chili.
Pancho Villa in the Fluvial gets third place according to our pollsters, with a lot of shout outs for their Tex-Mex burger. Pancho Villa also serves fries and has a menu with a wide variety of selections for those looking for something other than a simple burger.
Outback has long been a good watering hole and burger joint, with their oversized knives and bloomin’ onion rings.
More than honorable mention also goes to Joe Jack’s where you can get a good hamburger if you’re not feeling the amazing fish and chips.
Los Muertos Brewing Company is well known for pizza but got praise for their burgers and fries, too.
Que es como es.
