They actually have salads but most everyone orders a burger. They do have mixed drinks and beers here. Fries come with the burgers. We like the four sauces that come to your table for condiments and the fact they keep them in the refrigerator until you need them.

There are many choices of burgers here. These are just some of them.

Some burgers come in three different sizes. Prices range about 100-150 pesos. We recommend a small burger unless you are really hungry. Hamburgers are about 30 pesos cheaper then some burger places on 5th Avenue so it is worth coming here.

If you eat the big boy burger you can have your photo put up on the wall of fame.

If you want a cool place to grab a drink after this, look no further then next door at Las Helodias. We recommend their drinks here.

10 Comments on Shark Burgers-Grab a burger by the beach

  1. I went to shark burgers the other day and it was packed full of people so I was excited to see why so many people were there. It was pretty good. It was mainly people 20-30 and the weather got people off the beach and eating more. I also stopped by the bar next to it and got some of the cocktails I saw on your site. All good calls. Next time I will check out that Brochetas place further down the beach.

  2. We tried Shark Burger today. The burgers were pretty good even if the patty was a little machine made looking. I got he guacamole and recommend it to people. Calle 28 has some cool bars and is great from coming the beach and stopping to get a drink or something to eat.

  3. We stopped at Shark Burgers the other day and had very good burgers. We have to say they are some of the best in Playa!

    It’s a good burger there! I went here after seeing it on your burger guide to Playa Del Carmen. I wanted to try a couple of places. I wanted to get to Ruta 307 to try their hamburgers but did not get a chance to get over there. Maybe the next trip down. Thanks for all your restaurant reviews. They were spot on!
