Nice to find somewhere to eat that was reasonably priced - Dublin we found to be rather expensive for food! We happened to receive a deal which was any burger and unlimited soft drink for €10. Service was quick and friendly and this GBK was a bit more secluded than temple bar GBK. Although there are plenty of restaurants in... More

After visiting the disaster that was Bobo's, we thought we'd try here on our last day in Dublin. The restaurant is in a nice location, with lots of al fresco seats. I know this company has loads of branches in the UK and meant to try it in London but ran out of time. I opted for the chorizo burger... More

My fiance and I stopped here for a quick bite to eat while touring Dublin last month. We did not regret our decision! Delicious food, huge onion rings and the caesar salad was amazing. Also, the serve can't be beat! Very friendly waiters and waitresses. We will definitely be back!

Ourselves and another couple were looking for somewhere that could accommodate sitting outside. Light showers - and we lucked out with the sun poking thru. Choice of 4oz or 6oz burgers, my spouse chose the 4oz with Brioche bun. I chose the Chicken Cajun Blue, which was not a Cajun spice from Louisiana (but how would they know?). Diet Coke... More

My husband and I had just arrived to Dublin and were looking for lunch and happened upon Gourmet Burger Kitchen. We did not do our usual Trip Advisor research, and paid for it. The burgers were just okay and were very over-priced for what you got. Nothing like the authentic Irish burger we were looking for. Service was fine, and... More

We were intrigued to try GBK as the burgers were well priced and they were on the way to the movie theater. We were promptly seated upon arrival and given menus, however the service was downhill from there. It took us almost 20 minutes to place our order, and then almost 30 to get our food. There is no denying... More

I was really looking forward to this, as they specialise in burgers. I was so disappointed. My pulled pork burger was so dry, there was a scraping of sauce on the bun. I was happy that I ordered a sauce (for my chips) but it was €1.35 for about two tablespoons of it, and it ended up on my burger... More

After passing by this place for several times and always seeing it full of people, we decided to try it out. Then we understood why... the burgers are really nice, unfortunately for those who like to eat red meat medium rare will have no luck in this place, because they are not allowed to cook meet rare or medium rare,...

Located in the charming but tourist filled Temple Bar area of Dublin, The GBK has its pluses but a fair share of minuses as well. We waited for about 20 minutes after we were seated before the server came to our table. I thought this was simply unacceptable. At the same time, the food was really good. We started with... More
