Arguably the best burger joint in Lebanon

Well if you are in Lebanon and you want to have a burger, then CBJ is probably your best choice. CBJ is the best combination for price/value/taste. But then again... if you are a tourist in Lebanon, why go for a burger when you can get to eat a variety of tasty Lebanese cuisine meals?

I went with my little daughter to Burget Joint at Zaituna Bay, Beyrouth. We sat outdoors because the smell of friying oil was too strong inside the restaurant. We were hungry, so we ate our hamburgers with appetite. They were tasty but the french fries had an oily back taste. The prices were average. Everything was ok. The problem is... More

The variety offered is very appealing, however the levels of salt in the food is too much! Better quality meats - with lower sodium - need to be used.

I usually go there with friends or co-workers and it is always full at lunch break time. The greeting is nice even when there's no places so we wait a few minutes for a table. The service is good. As for the food, the burger is good and Mexican chili is some of my friends favorite. However the fries come... More

I love cbj! Almost everyday I'm craving it. It has a splendid service, they say exactly how many minutes your order will take and they arrive right on time. But it sometimes gives me a tummy ache when i have it as the first meal of the day. And I mean a really bad tummy ache.

I loved my honey mustard chicken burger. I didn't need the fries the burger was so big and the coleslaw was tasteless. My husband's beef burger was okay.

After trying burgers at Classic Burger Joint, no other burger is good enough! Very tasty and addictive! Not to mention the best customer service and friendly atmosphere. I'm used to Broumana branch, because it's close to where I live so I can't wait for summer season to start again!

Burger joint serves delicious burgers but I'm afraid they're unhealthy. So if you're following a healthy diet lifestyle avoid this restaurant by all means. I am a huge fan of honey mustard dressing but theirs never satisfied me.

Very cool place to eat at and order from. Few choices for starters or salads but the burgers are going to make pretty much everybody happy.
