If you are staying in a hotel in the vicinity of Ostbahnhof Station, there are not a lot of options for evening dining within walking distance. Tired of either travelling to other parts of the city after a long day in the office, or eating in hotel restaurants, I decided to see what was on offer within the Station. Amongst... More

An excellent little place with great fast service and even better tasting food! The only thing that could have made the place better is some 50s music to set the atmosphere. Would defiantly visit again.

American diner style restaurant, with good food at good prices, and excellent location. Nothing really special with the food, nor sporty ambiance, but all is very good and flawless.

Nice burgers, great and very fast service. The restaurant is located inside a railway station next to O2 Arena. The burger with mushrooms I have tasted was big enough to vanish my hunger.

This place has true American style food. It reminded me a bit of the Disneyland diners. Large burgers for a decent price. The chili burger is amazing !

I went on Burger Day (every Wednesday) and ate 4 different and great types of burgers for just 10 euro. The service was really good and the quality of the burgers was good enough to make me wish to be there again!

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
