Great burgers, if you like fries!

A medium order of fries inside your burger. I would recommend getting at least a double burger with cheese. If not a triple... with bacon and cheese. The bun is huge, and the amount of fries inside is absurd. The burger patty itself is good, but too small. Get extra meat for sure! Cheap... read more

Situated opposite restraunt calleche this little take away sandwich shop offers massive burgers and baguettes and great value. All priced between 5-9 euros try a burger or baguette with chips inside, my favorite is the americano double! Can get busy at times but its worth the wait!

Their steak-frite-fromage baguette is the most delicious fast food on earth..so so addictive. The service can be kinda crap (they will make you feel stupid if you talk in french, but be annoyed if you talk in english..) but who cares when it tastes this good?

After a night on the town, this is by far the best alternative to a burger van I have ever visited......excellent food, freshly cooked and great value.

I've been visiting Chamonix for over 15 years and always make time to visit the Midnight Express. Great food and friendly staff. I can particularly recommend the steak, frites, fromage baguette!

this is one of those places that once you visit you'll tell others who are soon to, to make sure they don't miss. all of the breads are fresh. The servings are enormous and the price is low. They speak English and are very friendly. It's up to go window and there isn't much seating but it is definitely worth... More

Midnight Express is a fast-food place on the main high street. Great for a quick sandwich after a day of skiing. A great variety of warm sandwiches with chips and meat/ fish/cheese for very reasonable prices. Better than local McDonnys by far!

Absolutely starving when we finished and just wanted a sandwich, nothing fancy. Saw this place and the selection was great, had the poulet fermier which was hot along with some frites. Quick and friendly service and the food was top rate. Why can't the restaurants on the US serve good fresh food like this at reasonably prices?
