“Great food but medium rare is medium rare!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Great food great atmosphere but the service was not great. Place is very busy so you need to book in advance. No problem going back, just hope the service improves!

“Classic American BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Phenomenal place to eat your steak. Any kind, any size. They actually cut the rib eye to your preferred size. And its great! Fatty, tasty and enough. Order side orders, and drinks and why not some appetizers? On busy days (Friday, Saturday), you'll have to wait for service, so keep your orders coming at a rapid pace to cut down on the waiting game...

“Yummy burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Great service, delicious burgers (although I still find it so odd that they use an English muffin as a bun). the meat is top quality. The fries are excellent and I love that there are huge tubes of ketchup AND mayo available. Good beer on tap, too. You HAVE to have a reservation (booked a few days in advance has been my experience) but in the summer you can try to get a seat outside.

“Amazing burgers! Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

If you like burgers you have to visit here! Very much USA style. The food is stunning, great staff and all great value. I would highly recommend booking as it was packed at 10pm on a Monday evening. Seriously yummy!

“Burger heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Just by reading their menu one understands this is not a regular burger place. The Bird is for those who wants to combine a great burger and a terrific atmosphere. Service is friendly despite of the chaos in the restaurant. The night we visited the restaurant was packed and eventhough we were a party of 11 our food came quickly and - what was the best thing - steaming hot.

Few recommendations: BBQ Burger was prepaired to the perfection with a medium rare beef. An english muffin replaiced a regular bun and somehow it emphasized the succulent texture of the burger. Also the club sandwich was a great choice. Steaks were good quality and also prepaired well - but not well done in which way The Bird refuses to serve any steak as it is said in the menu. Fries on the side were tasty but no normal person can finish them since the portion was huge.

One word of warning. Stay away from the Napalm Wings. The bartender serving them asked: Where is the person who made a bad mistake? Talking about a hint about what's coming.

Overall a great burger night out. Very close to a must thing to do in Berlin.
