“Best Burger Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

I should start by saying that I'm definitely not the world's biggest burger fan. I love organic, non-processed food that's made from scratch and burgers don't really make it on to my list in terms of things I want to eat.

HOWEVER, this was an amazing dinner. The burger was absolutely steak quality meat and there was none of the feeling of having eaten 'junk' food. It transpires that they use the best meat (that would end up as steaks anywhere else) and grind it themselves. You really can tell, there was no greasy feeling and the quality of the meat was absolutely evident. They're clearly passionate about food and even though it's not the stereotypical 'fine dining' I wish other places cared this much about what they were serving. Bonus, it's cheap as can be.

A must visit in Berlin, make a reservation, it's crazy busy.

“Great well made American style hamburger for seriously big appetites.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Nice big hamburgers if not too much meat for my taste and tasty french fries. Friendly staff in a busy atmosphere. Flippin' burger, Stockholm, still the king though ;).

“Rocked our world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

ok, lets be honest, this isn't fine dining, it isn't michelin starred, it isnt even German. It's American all the way ! We had read all of the reviews and were curious as to what all the fuss was. In short it was brilliant. Awesome burgers, chilli fries, hot wings, cold coke and beer and the best cheesecake i have ever eaten, without question.

our tips,
1. dont go if you arent after a big greazy americana meal
2. starve yourself all day, MASSIVE portion size
3. use your hands

“burgers, beer, ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The Bird was amazing. Our burgers were juicy and cooked to perfection, we ate the whole thing easily even though they were gigantic. The fixings and fries were also of very good quality-- this place doesn't skimp on the details, and it's well priced. The decor is great too, kind of a German twist on a typical brew pub that you might find in any large American city (exposed brick walls; plenty of room for eating at the bar; plus a catchy playlist-- the Beach Boys!). The Bird is worth a visit-- it's between two U-Bahn stations, probably a ten-minute walk from either of them. The surrounding neighborhood looked like it had some other decent stuff too.
