“Great burgers, unique surroundings, just outside Schliesisches Tor station on U1.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

A different setting for a burger, this old converted public loo just across the road from the exit of Schliesisches Tor u-bahn station serves up some top notch fast food. It's really popular (we arrived about 11.45 pm and luckily made do with their converted bottle crate seats...) but the service is fast and the numbers on the orders ready board went without too much of a wait. I opted for their double burger with bacon cheese and jalapeños, it was cooked perfectly, and I couldn't finish the fries that I bought alongside. The drinks are a flat €1.50 for beer, water or soft drink taken from the fridge self service style. It's location at the tip of east kreuzberg is great for a bit of people watching, the food is very good for what it is, the service very fast and efficient, maybe to the detriment of it being friendly, but nothing that would put me off returning

“Get the Chilli-Cheese Fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Good Location, near the train station. Got a great burger with Chilli Cheese fries (which I highly recommend). All round good experience, wait wasn't too bad as was busy at the time and was lucky to get a seat. Recommend for Burger/Fast Food fans.

“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.

“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!!!
