When we mention Diente de Oso Restaurant to people, everyone says “Where is that?” It is right on 5th Avenue but because the sign is not really visable you might have walked past this restuarant many times.You should however get to know where it is if you like burgers because they have some of the best.

What type of restaurant is Diente de Oso?

Diente de Oso is a gourmet hamburger restaurant with about 15 different burgers. Burgers are beef, Kobe beef, tuna, chicken, turkey and two vegetarian options. All of the sides are a little more gourmet as well and the atmpshere is trendy. They have sidwalk seating under a awning and inside seating.

They make their own special bread for the burgers and have quality ingredients with a gourmet edge. All of it combined make their burgers very tasty.

Diente de Oso is also a great place for drinks. It is casual and there are good regular specials during the week. For example from 11:00am-3:00pm during lunch they have 2×1 beers. Right now that is only 25 pesos for 2 beers!! That is better then at an Oxxo convenience store. On Thursday nights they have 49 peso cocktails and it is decent quality alcohol, that is good deal too.
