sorry, but in compaison to the other burgers on the top 10 list, chester's burgers are almost without taste. in addition, they are often times poorly put together e.g. your tomato...

THE best burgers...ever! 5/28/2011

I have had burgers from north to south and east to west - Chester's has THE best chili-cheese burger known to man. I have moved to NC and everytime I return back to SATX for a visit, Chester's is on my MUST list of places to eat. It's well worth the money - if you want a cheap burger then go to a fast food joint! more

False Advertising 5/17/2011

I've driven by Chester's multiple times, and I am a lover of a good burger. Me and my mother were out and about and I figured I'd try out the ""best burger in town"". She ordered the fish and chips and I splurged on the burger and fries (A plain burgers costs 5 dollars and a small fry costs 2) and was looking forward to a new taste. When i picked up my food, I was disappointed to find the fries so soggy and bland. I went to the burger to find the patty was very thing and had almost no flavor. I had to add salt and pepper, and I still wasn't satisfied. This reminded me of really bad leftovers from a cafeteria. I won't be stopping here again any time soon. more

Overpriced for what you get 11/16/2010

The food quality was good, the burger was delicious. The French fries left something to be desired--they were bland and tasteless. It cost about $10/person for a burger, fries and a coke-- way too much money for the quality and quantity that you get. Plus, I was disappointed to find that they were voted the best burger in Texas by a magazine that went out of business in 1992. You really shouldn't be able to advertise ""voted best burger in all of Texas"" more than a decade after it happened. more

JUST OK 11/15/2010

The burgers are okay, but I want a larger selection of items to be able to pile on my burger. And if I'm gonna cheat once a week eating a fatty burger I would rather click my heels together and wish that Little Hips was back in business. more

Over rated 9/6/2010

Over priced and not as good as Fuddruckers, Cheesy Janes, or Fatty's. How are you going to specialize in burgers and NOT HAVE MUSHROOMS!!!! Why??? I don't know who ranks burgers in this town but i think most of the top burger places aren't that good. This being one of them. I think if it starts as a frozen patty then you lose, game over, nobody want that sh!t. If im paying upwards of $10, it better be fresh!!!! more

Not worth the hype 5/16/2010

Along with Chris Madrid's this is one of S.A.'s most over rated burgers. It's a good burger, don't get me wrong, but best? Child please. I like a little A-1 on my burger and it's not available here. I consider Chester's as the standard for burgers in S.A. it has to be better to be considered good, and anything worse is not worth the time. Pros: a good burger, good fries, good beer selection Cons: limited condiments more

The best burger I've ever eaten!!! 4/23/2010

OK.......I know what you are all thinking.....another stupid burger review. LISTEN......I had my first Chesters Burger about 14 years ago when I was dating a guy who's parents live in San Antonio. He was stationed at Ft. Hood and when I would come visit we would drive to San Antonio for burgers. Also...when he would come see me I would BEG him to bring me a burger. He NEVER made it. He said it smelled too good and he would eat it on his drive. LOL I SWEAR.......14 years later and I am still craving that burger!!!!! Pros: DELICIOUS Cons: Not a chesters near me!!!!! more

the big deal 2/8/2010

Voted the best burgers.......? I didn't see what was so great about them. I mean Fuddruckers makes their own patties AND bread. The fries were dry and tasted old. The burgers were a good size but thats about it. more

Great Burgers 12/22/2008

Even with all the better reviews, it is showing up lower than cheesy janes and fuddruckers. Shouldn't it be about the food and not if its got some plastic play stuff for the kids. Pros: Great burger more

Mediocre at best 12/13/2008

Not sure why this place EVER made anyone's best burger list. It is overpriced and mediocre at best. Onion rings were really poor; overcooked and with what apprears to be a conrmeal batter. Have eaten here twice, and it was poor both times. Chris Madrids has nothing to worry about from this chain. more

FROM AN EMPLOYEES POINT OF VIEW 6/9/2008

I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE CUSTOMERS FOR THE COMMENTS, THE GOOD & THE BAD. I HAVE A BLAST WORKING AT CHESTER'S, I HAVE BEEN THERE FOR A WHILE NOW.

YES OUR BUNS NO LONGER HAVE THE POPPY SEEDS ON THEM, WE ARE LOOKING FOR A PLACE THAT WILL MAKE THEM FOR US. IT HAS BEEN HARD TO FIND SOMEBODY. WE DO NOW HAVE FREE REFILS ON ALL SODAS & SWEET & UNSWEET TEA. I KNOW AT OUR STORE I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY KIND OF HARRISMENT TOWARDS OTHER EMPLOYEES WITH DISABLITIES. FOR THE CUSTOMERS COMING IN AT LUNCH TIME, THE WAIT IS GOING TO BE LONG IT IS LUNCH TIME. PLEASE FORGIVE US, WE CAN ONLY GO SO FAST W/O GETTTING THE ORDERS WRONG. THE MANAGERS ARE ALWAYS THERE TO HELP ANY CUSTOMER WITH ANY PROBLEM OR QUESTIONS. FOR THE EMPLOYEES THAT WORK THE CASHIER STATION CAN HELP YOU WITH ANY QUESTIONS WITH BURGER OR SANDWICH. WE ARE TRAINED BY THE BEST. THE PREPS CAN FIX ANY MISTAKE THAT HAS HAPPEND. WE ARE ALSO TRAINED BY THE BEST. THE KITCHEN PEOPLE ARE WHAT KEEP THE STORE RUNNING. W/O THEM THE DISHES WOULD NOT BE CLEAN THE TALBES WOULD NOT BE CLEAN NOR WOULD THE RESTROOMS BE CLEAN. WE WERE ALSO TRAINED BY THE BEST. THE MANAGERS HAVE ALOT OF RESPONSIBLITIES TO TAKE CARE OF. BUT THEY ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR THE CUSTOMERS. THEY WERE TRAINED BY THE BEST. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO WRITE ON OUR COMMENT CARDS, LET US KNOW HOW WE ARE DOING. & THE MAIN OFFICE & THE MANAGERS AT THE STORE DO LOOK AT THEM && READ THEM. WE GET SCOLDED FOR NOT DOING OUR BEST(TRUST ME, I KNOW) & WE ALSO GET COMENDED FOR DOING OUR BEST OR BETTER. ALL I CAN SAY I GUESS IS TO PLEASE COME IN & SEE FOR YOURSELF. more

Chester's didn't do it for me this time 2/22/2008

I went to Chester's earlier in the month of February. It just wasn't the same this time, the meat didn't have that Chester's taste, it did taste like low quality hambuger meat, the hambuger bun didn't have the sesame seeds on it, it was as if I wasn't eating at Chaster's. I won't be going back for awhile and hopefully when I do return it will be like it used to be. In the meanwhile I will be going to Chris Madrids, now thats a hamburger. Pros: Great Fries Cons: Lost that Chester's hamburger taste more

Huge portions 2/12/2008

I had my first Chester's experience on an extremely busy Friday during lunch hour. I was starving and could only eat 1/2 my burger and 1/2 my fries, although we had to wait about 30 minutes for our food. I think they get a certain number of orders racked up, then grill them all up at the same time because about 100 orders were called in groups of 10 or so with long waits in between. Whatever works--those burgers are worth the wait...so yummy! Pros: yum! Cons: long wait (for lunch-hour standards) more

Best Burger both sides of the Pecos 5/15/2007

There is a reason why this place is packed at noon time. This IS the best burger you will get in San Antonio and you will experience the best fries also. I've been here dozens and dozens of times and I have yet to have a bad experience. The hamburger patties are seasoned to perfection. The fries are made from scratch right their at the establishment. I was never a fan of fries until I visited Chester's. Service has always been great (who cares if someone has a ring in their freakin nose). Their is also a great line up and selection of beers to choose from. Pros: Burgers and Fries Cons: some long lines at noon time more

Order Up...Chester's Hamburgers!! 2/6/2007

I had never eaten at Chester's and I had a really busy day today at work. A friend went and picked up some lunch for us and I still didn't get to eat it for about another hour. Much to my surprise, even at room temperature, that was one of the best burgers I have ever had. Would do again and will do more often. Pros: Even good at room temp. Cons: Not one located in my office building. more

good food, lousy service 11/29/2006

I went to chester's off of 281, and the food was great....I just thought that the service lacked in quality tremendously....and I can't believe that they allow employees to wear jewelry around food in other places than their ears...the girl that took my order had a earring through her nose....nasty, imagine what gets stuck to that. From the girl that took my order to the person doing the drinks and calling orders, there was no customer service whatsoever. I should have taken my business else where, like 5 minutes down the road to longhorn tavern....they have always had great food AND great service. Pros: parking okay, food okay, good coverage of games Cons: CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKED!!!! more

great food and fun 11/16/2006

The place was the perfect place to have good food and a great atmosphere to watch your favorite team play. more

2nd Best Hamburgers in San Antonio! 9/13/2006

The hamburgers, fries and onion rings are great but the wait is too long for hamburgers. The beer selection is great for someone who drinks beer but for those of us who do not drink beer it would be better to give free drink refills like most hamburger joints do. The atmosphere is good and the place is kept pretty clean almost all of the time. But the best place in Texas for hamburgers is at Culver's a fairly new restaurant on DeZavala Road across from the Post Office. They have the best food and customer service along with the cleanest store and the wait is not near as long as Chester's. You have not had a delicious juicy hamburger until you have tried Culver's. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The customer service is excellent and you get free refills on your drinks. The staff will even get you the refill so you do not have to get up and let your food get cold. Pros: Great food and beer selection. Cons: Food takes too long to prepare and no free refill on drinks. more
