Nacho Libre: A Gourmet Burger Joint

I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better burger in San Juan del Sur than what you’ll get at Nacho Libre.  These guys are doing it up right!

San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

With nine different burgers on the menu to choose from there is something for everyone.

Priced at $9 Smelly, But Nice comes with blue cheese, caramelized onions, spicy mustard greens, balsamic reduction and grey poupon and is the most expensive burger on the menu.

If you’re prefer something more simple you might want to try the Missionary burger. It’s topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and Kosher dill pickles and rings in at just $5. 

For the non-meat eaters Nacho Libre serves a $6 burger they call Yoga Ass. This gourmet vegetarian burger comes with a cous cous veggie patty, mozzarella, caramelized onions, avocado and salsa verde. 

I chose #4 – In n’ Out Animal. American cheese, caramelized onions, Kosher dill pickles and Thousand Island remoulade. Need I say more?

Gord’s pick? #5 – The Big Wang. Charred jalapeños, bacon, extra sharp cheddar cheese, avocado and salsa verde make up this burger.

– The Big Wang

All burgers are served on Corn Island Coconut bread that is made fresh daily. If you’re concerned about carbs you can have your burger served on a bed of locally sourced organic greens. All burgers come with your choice of hand-cut, house seasoned fries or organic mixed greens.  

As we devoured our tasty burgers, delicious crispy seasoned fries and Frosty Tonas we felt like we were in a trendy burger joint in a large city somewhere.

Nacho Libre reminded me of the type of place that is featured on the show Diners, Drive-In and Dives.

From the mouthwatering juicy burger, to the presentation, to the frosty Tona, to the friendly service with a smile I loved everything about this place. 

If you’re in San Juan del Sur (and love burgers) lunch at Nacho Libre is a must!
