Playa del Carmen has a great burger place located downtown across from the Walmart on 30th avenue. It’s called 3XL Burger, and is the place to go if you are hungering for a great, well-made fresh hamburger.
3XL has a choice of burgers: Muu (beef), Puerco (pork), or Pollo (chicken), which you can buy individually or as part or a combo. Side orders include a choice of fries, sweet potato fries or an half ear of corn. The burgers come in three sizes: 1XL, 2XL or 3XL, hence the name of the restaurant.
Once you get your burger, you get to add all your toppings. The bar to the side has everything from a variety of salsas, fresh veggies, and of course, the traditional ketchup, mustard, and mayo. You can choose from 35 different elements including vegetables and sauces. The variety of items means that you can create some very unique, highly personalized hamburgers that you won’t find anywhere else. Cucumbers, radishes, sauces such as chipotle, BBQ, and 1000 island.
According to the owner José Manuel ¨Cheo¨ Arcia, the concept was based around having everything be fresh and not frozen, with three sizes to suit each customers appetite requirements. Almost all of the sauces are made in-house.
The burgers are cooked on a grill, and all their beef comes from the north of Mexico from the state of Chihuahua. Cheo gets his meat delivered fresh daily and is never frozen. The produce is locally and the buns come from a local bakery. You can definitely taste the difference in the freshness of the ingredients.
3XL also has a selection of hot dogs and vegetarians options, like vegetarian burgers, black bean or quinoa. In addition to amazing burgers, they serve up bbq ribs, hot dogs, sweet potato fries, and more. They are open daily from 12:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. and currently accept Visa and Mastercard. They also offer home delivery (984 803 1519) Visit them on Facebook/3XL Comida Grande.
