“Somebody seems to like it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a tiny burger joint run by hairy punks, which sounds just about perfect, but I was very disappointed. Granted, I ordered the baby burger, which didn't appear to have any semblance to the regular burger, but it was most distasteful. The texture was more like a thick cut of salami, and the drippings on my plate were an unappetizing inky colour. But this place must have something going for it, because there was a steady stream of people coming in for take-out or to squeeze into one of the few places at the rail. I thoroughly enjoyed my Coke.

“No Place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

No place to sit as it was full of screaming kids. On top of that I was overcharged. Definitely will stay far away in the future!.

We didn't wait long, inspite of the line of people.
the staff was friendly and spoke english, the place is neatly designed and the food was very tasty and in large portions.

“Fun spot, good value, but burgers only okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

A small storefront burger joint off Prenzlauer Allee that always has customers queing up. Nice staff behind the counter will help guide non-German speakers. Complaints? There's a clatter of meat on metal when they throw the burgers on the grill- meaning the meat is pre-formed and frozen. Same with the fries... whether wedges or pommes frites, frozen as well. Both burgers and spuds can be dressed up with pickle, onion, American (processed) cheese, but the taste isn't there, and the food is dry. Go fresh on the ground beef and hand cut the potatoes every morning! My sense is the constant line is not due to the quality of the food, but the price, which is extremely reasonable for North America's finest cuisine.

“Warning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

I can only advise people to stay away from the Marienburger....if they value their own health.

My son recently - friday, september 17th 2011 - bought a Cheeseburger here. He then spent the night being violently sick.

Together with the doctor, he went through the day before and the culprit was quickly found.

I do not know if the cause was bad meat, dirty vegetables or - sorry, but I have say this - bad hand-washing routine after going to the toilet.

As I tried to tell the staff of our experience, they reacted quite strangely. They were not interested in finding out, what had been eaten or what the doctor had said - just to stop me from talking about it.

It seemed as though they had heard it before.
