Supposedly one of the trendy new burger joints, you have a decent choice with fries, slaw and a drink. I went to the Hamra one - relatively small place so if you go with a party of friends, better to pick somewhere else. Good selection of drinks. So I had the Mexican. The bun was ok - but it wasn't...

Classic Burger Joint or CBJ offers a limited yet very delicious menu of mouth-watering flame-grilled juicy & flavored burgers with fries. An experience you should not miss

I have tried almost all the burgers & my favorite is The Mexican, you will love it specially if you like spicy hot souce & jalapenos. The potatoes are the freshest there is, real fresh potato with chicken salt... lovely....One last thing... More

I previously placed a bad review about this place because of the rude service & high prices. But I re-visited a couple of different branches lately (Le Mall Dbayeh & Hamra); and service was much better, waiters much much much less rude & really friendly, and although prices are still a bit high - but between the unique taste &...

Usually very good but this time was one of the worst, I took the classic light and this time it was so bad. Dry, not tasty and the bread is not fresh. It was disappointing.

Very busy most of the times, but the food is always worth the wait. I went there about 3 times with very friendly staff and will not regret visiting again any time.
