I understand from previous review answers from management that the burgers have been voted best in Belgium. I really must disagree with this. The staff were lovely. Very friendly and fast nice manner etc. But the chips tasted double cooked ie pre fried and heated again in hot oil. Not a nice flavour and the meat was very fatty and... More

The burgers are good, not mind-blowing but, hey it's burgers. It's a good option if you want to have a quick, cosy and good-value dinner with friends or colleagues. Staff was friendly both times I went. It can get quite noisey. The experience differs a bit depending on where you're seated.

So, I usually don't write the reviews right away, but this time I had to do it.

My friends and I came here on a day when we particularly missed good American burgers. A novel idea, but we should have expected something far more Belgian. Cons: The Burger The burger was cooked all the way through, and it was barely seasoned. Ketchup, mustard, AND mayonnaise were all included, which masked the taste of the flimsy bacon but... More

Went here for a quick late lunch before we went to pick up the Eurostar back to St Pancras. It is located not too far from Grand Place opposite a beautiful 17th century church undergoing cleaning. As it was empty at 4.30 pm the service was very prompt and the waitress was cheerful and spoke fluent English. Fries were plentiful... More

Had lunch in Ellis Burger with a friend who was visiting Brussels. The location is great and the decor is clean and very welcoming. A busy place, service was nonetheless very friendly and efficient. Drinks and food arrived within 15 mins. The burgers are of a good quality without any obvious 'wow' factor - french fries also. I think there... More

Delicious burgers. We took funky chicken and salmon with French fries. Quick service and friendly staff. For full meal you need to order separately side dish (salad, french fries etc.), which increases the price.
