So 'average' is too low, but 'very good' would be slightly exagerated. Holy Cow has all a Burger-Lover longs for, with thick Fries that come in the 'Menu' option - and all at reasonable Prices for Zürich. The Bred is baked onsite, the Meat patty is good and fresh, but not outstanding. And the food is served on a Paper... More

Great Place if you want a good burger in Zurich and not pay over 20 CHF. Have some creative combinations, so anyone will find something they like. Also the fries are really good. Best of all, you order and usually the order is ready within several minutes.

This place sells quite nice burgers at a reasonable price (for being Zürich, mind that!). There is a wide vairety of combinations to test with beef/chicken and even some creative vegetarian recipes. Food is cooked at the moment, or is anyway quite fresh. Didn't personally try the fries, but seemed delicious enough. The place is also conveniently located in the... More

Really good burgers. Great choice of burgers for meat eaters and vegetarians. Quick service. Only local products. The price is also great for Zürich. Highly recommended.

Am a returning customer to Holy Cow. Visited their restaurants in Lausanne as well. Usually burgers are really really good; french fries as well except for a few occasions where they were lacking a few minutes of frying. You pass your order at the counter and then wait for your food. First come first served on the seating; you might... More
