A good choice for a big burger and 'pommes'. There's a good selection of burgers and toppings, including Veggie options (2 i think). Friendly staff. Sadly, only a few seats outside and only a few more inside. If you sit inside, beware it gets hot!

We were staying not too far from here and on our last night in cologne we decided to try it out, after having walked past a couple of times. Best thing we could have done! You get a lot of burger for your money with a generous amount of salad etc inside, and it tastes delicious. It's a small place... More

Tiny place with limited seating, and a bit out of the way unless you happen to be staying nearby (which we were). If you're in the area though, it's amazing. Best burger and chips I've ever had. I had the BBQ one (I forget the precise name).

I tried the classic one with extra cheese bacon and jalapeno and it was great! And the price is also very right for that good stuff. I also liked the cola they were selling. Africola or something similar. The guys there were very hospitable and they were always trying their best for the customer. Was my best meal in Cologne... More

This place was the best burger I have had in Europe. They have amazing homemade bbq sauce and ketchup. Plan on a line on a Friday or Saturday evening but we went on a Sunday at noon and we got our own table and some special tastings of all of their homemade sauces.

Was there recently with friends and was very impressed overall with the quality of the food offered (especially the different sauces). Fries and meat were excellent. Comparable to high-quality burger restaurants in the UK or US. Certainly the best in Köln!! Will definitely go back there! Highly recommended!

My wife and I sought out this diner when we visited Cologne last weekend, and it was worth the trek down some darkened alleys. I'm glad I had my smart phone to guide me because it is slightly off the beaten path. I think a good burger is a match for almost any meal, and Freddy Schillings is right up... More

Qualitywise there is nothing to complain about but for me the burgers are overengineered meaning too many and fancy extras. For a plain and simple burger the price is a bit too steep in my eyes.

I can totally agree with Fronkenst3ins review. I am familiar with these type of burger Restaurants in Holland, but the burger I got (Freddy's Favorit) at Freddy Schilling was defenitely one of the best! Every detail in this restaurant has been thought of: A delicious burger, lovely french fries, homemade ketchup, not the standard drinks but 'special drinks' like Fritz... More
