Average to good hamburger and fries

I ordered a classic burger gourmet with cheese and accompanying fries. To drink, a glass of De Koninck. It was good, nothing 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

Hi Bilbo R, Thanks for your review on tripadvisor and the recommendation you've gave us with 4 stars. Nevertheless i would like to react on our burgers. Non of our burgers are precooked. We grill them on the moment a order is made. Hope to have you back soon! 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.

Walked in, Sat down, was asked to go upstairs because there was only 2 of us. We go upstairs and are seated on an 8 person table with other pairs - not really what I wanted but...okay.

On both occasions the burgers, fries and onion rings were cooked to perfection! The restaurant is located in a nice area easily accessible by metro. The casual atmosphere makes this restaurant a great place to catch up with friends over a delicious burger. Will surely visit again.

The location is very nice: place Sainte Catherine (specially in the night) worth a visit. The local itself has a fantastic atmosphere: comfy and easy going The hamburgers are really good. The restaurant is always full: but don't worry...waiting time is not that bad.

The food was delicious. Simple burger, fries, onion rings and a great milkshake. One of the waiters barely spoke English, but understood French. This was a little strange as the menu has lots of English on it. The waiter also needed prompted to clean the table, even after taking our order. Another waiter apologised and seemed embarassed. Overall this place... More

Pretty good burgers, nothing exceptional about it. Prices are ok, not too expensive. Friendly staff. It's crowdy on Saturday night. Desserts are ok also. Certainly not the best burgers of Brussels (Les superfilles du tramway in Ixelles or the Comic Café are better venue), but it's ok, try it.

I had high hopes as my wife and I searched out this restaurant on a nice Sunday afternoon. Once inside the hope continued as the decor (nice photos of burgers and burger joints from the US) seemed spot on. The Menu described the burgers in detail and emphasized the 100% pure beef. I chose one that came with mustard, ketchup,... More

Hi Two_Okies. Thank you for sharing your feedback and we appreciate your 5 star about our service. However, we are saddened to your comments about your patty and onion rings experience.
