“Best Toilet Burger in the city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Burgermeister is awesome. First of all, it is located under the U-Bahn tracks. Secondly, its building is a former city toilet location (the dark green wrought iron is your first clue... plus there's still a sign that says "Männer" on the side near where you order.) Brilliant!

The burgers are about $5 and, you know, for five bucks, they're pretty great. Lots of different toppings (my husband said his burger could use more jalapeños) but mine was great with fried onions, bacon and cheese. Fries on the side and a drinks cooler where everything is $1.50 - beer, soda, water, whatever you want.

Really fun and tasty street food.

“Really don't get what the fuss is all about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

First things first, it's a f***ing burger joint. You find like a 1000 of them in Berlin in every corner and really they mostly look the same and the food taste the same. I think the reason people talk about this one in particular is that it's conveniently located right where you are tired and hungry.
Second of all, the burger isn't even juicy and delicious as everybody says. It's pretty normal and standard.
Third, because it gets sooo crowded due to the fake hype, the service is not that good either. You gotta wait for your food standing sometimes for half an hour.
All in all, I wouldn't say it's bad but don't get your expectations too high!

“Best veggie burger I've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Really great street food. Well worth seeking it out if you visit east side gallery. Just over the bridge under the railway track by Schlesisches Tor station - look for a small green building. We had a veggie burger, a cheese burger and chips. Delicious!!!

“A little piece of delicious burger heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Tucked away in what used to be as public toilet, Burgermeister is the perfect dive for a delish burger and a cheap beer.
The staff were a little rude - but considering I speak only basic German I think this is only to expect really - but the food more than made up for it.
Covered in stickers it's a cute underground fast-food haven for a quick lunch bite.
