Very tasty and feels like home made burgers!

Holy Cow is a fast food selling local products, food and drinks. The meat is tasty and juicy. Try the various burgers, blue cheese is excellent. Highly recommended and nothing in common with the awful fast food worldwide known. The price is higher then elsewhere but you get quality fast food.

The best burgers in Switzerland for sure! All the products are fresh and come from Switzerland. They have a wide range of types of burgers, it is really great. I have been there a lot of times and it has never disappointed me :)

Holy Cow creates tasty burgers that are by far superior than the ones in Mc Donalds or Burger King. There are lots of choices. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to find a place to seat in the restaurant.

If you're in Lausanne on a budget and you want a good hearty meal that will not bankrupt you, go to Holy Cow. The burgers are excellent, as are the fries, and they serve Dr Gabs, a local beer that you must try. The portions are so big that my girlfriend can never finish her fries. Good for me. A... More

A simple place, basic service, however fast and extremely well prepared burgers. Test is great as much as is variety. They also have some interesting artisanal beer crafted in Lausanne that goes very well with the burgers. A definite recommendation.

Holy cow (in both locations in Lausanne) offers a wide and good choice of burgers and siders. Prices are ok by Lausanne standards - i.e., people coming from abroad shall not be surprised to spend 20CHF for burger beer and chips; that's normal and actually relatively cheap. The veggie burger, also for non vegetarians, is definitely to try!

Were we on a family holiday in Lausanne and were heard about this restuarant. It was a real surprised to find this burger restaurant. It offered lots of burger choices and the quality were excellent. It was very busy and has limited seating but well worth the wait. For Switzerland it was reasonably priced.

A very good place and a wide choice of excellent burgers. A young and simple atmosphere (long wooden tables where everyone seats next to eachother) and an very good and quick service. On top you have a good range of locally crafted beers.
