I think the best thing about CBJ is that you actually see the kitchen right in front of you, should you want to watch the chefs preparing the meals. For meat lovers, I recommend the Classic Cheese & the Swiss N' Mushrooms. Around 13 US$ per person per meal including beverage and tips. For chicken lovers, I recommend the Honey... More

I recently discovered the classic burger DT. Honestly, I think that it is the best burger in town at reasonable prices. The quality of meat is excellent as well as the home made fries.

I have tried Classic Burger Joint in several of their locations. I can say they are consistent. The services is ok, nothing special and the burgers are only a small cut above McDonalds or Burger King. They coat their fries with a spice, which is a shame because my children won't eat them. The salad is small and tasteless. This... More

I am an American living in Beirut, and this place has hands down the best burgers in the country. Coming from the land of burgers, I have searched long and wide in Lebanon for an authentic burger that tastes like home. CBJ has that burger and beyond. The meat is fresh, tender and flavorful, and their secret sauce is out... More

Beirut has an amazing tradition for excellent local food. It has been invaded by 'America" like almost every where else. The food is very good even by American standards. But I prefer to each in restaurants serving local food. That is one of the joys of traveling.

As a BurgerAddict, I'm always down to try a new burger joint, but Classic Burger Joint is still my top😌. What makes them so special is the bread they use, the meat they grill, their crunchy french fries, and of course, their warm and cozy branches❤️

Visited the Zaitunay Bay location on my last night in Beirut. Delicious burgers and great fries along with very friendly service. Most of the Zaitunay Bay restaurants are a bit pricey but this was very affordable and quite good.

The portions are generous, the taste is just great. whatever you decide for would be a good choice. the only but i could say about that place (Sodeco branch) is the bad aeration : you get out smelling grilled burgers to the bones.
