Chef Pepper, hands down.
We went to Chef Pepper once, I had the burger but the only thing I remember was this homeless woman when we exited who put the hard sell on us. We ended up talking to her for about 1/2 hour. Shared a beer even. She probably still works that part of the street.

Service all over DR is horrendous, its because locals do not tip. Once you tip which I do the minute I sit down, the game changes.
I tip, and so does my Dominican wife, however level of service should never depend on tips because they are paid to serve. I have had excellent service in several restaurants in the DR.

unfortunately this does not work all the time......ive gone to numerous restaurants and tipped very well and still received the typical Dominican service ...after 3 or 4 times …..I adjust my tip to the standard of service...you would think most waiters and waitresses would recognize a tipper and " up " their service

Tipping helps on a personal level, but on the whole, when you encounter better quality staff and service it means they are paid better wages and their employers provide proper training and motivational work. This is based on businesses I am familiar with on the east coast and other parts of the DR.

reservation is because it’s dusted in 24k gold and needs prior prep and not cheap for a burger.
Yes correct and also because the premium meat (from t bone steak + .... ) need to be as fresh as possible and grinned the same day ( ITS AN ART REALLY)
In New York city a gourmet Gold Burger goes as high as $200 USD ... and here for the same experience you get it for $20 USD ( but i hear they will be pulling this out of the menu and replacing it with ??? still a secret )

tipping always works. I tip a few dollars when I sit down and I have their complete attention even at an AI works like charm while the cheapskates stand there looking at me.

My best burgers for me are the ones I make.

What do Americans and canoes do that Europeans don't do?
