Excellent burger culture in Paris

Basically it is not your usual burger. It's innovative French twist on American classic. And it's not small. To sum up, excellent food, attention to details and prepared as asked. Perfect after all day tourist run in Paris. Only one word of advice. The place is seriously tiny. If you can spot it... read more

…but if you really want one that is the place to go. Not the industrial crap and served by people who seem to enjoy what they are doing.

I was dying for an American hamburger in Paris so I ate at PDG Central Park on the rue de Bretagne. $36 for a OSCAR hamburger! I took half of the burger back to my room with some fries. It was just as delicious the second day. Service was great. Worth the big price!

I had planned my two week trip to France a year in advance, and was so excited to everything I was about to do! Then, bam! I made the decision to eat at this restaurant. I can tell you now, that after eating the grilled "chicken", I came down with the worse food poisoning ever. I spent the second half... More

We could tell we were on to something when we saw the burgers the outside diners were munching on. i had a fabulous bacon cheeseburger... More

This is a tiny place not far from Champs Elysees. It was recommended by a worker in one of the shops we visited. It was excellent. We are Americans and don't usually eat hamburgers when out of the country, so were a bit skeptical. It was excellent. Burgers were done to our liking and our waiter spoke French and English....

We really fancied a good burger and found this place was literally 2 minutes from our hotel, so decided to give it a try. The restaurant is quite a small place but don't let that put you off. We got there about 8pm and there was only 1 other person in there eating, but by the time we left it... More

Based on trip advisor reviews my husband and I were keen on trying one of these burgers.. And we were not disappointed! It turned out to be around the corner from our hotel which was even better! Nicely run little buisness! Try the Jumbo double bacon and cheese burger! Enjoy :-)

Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
