“Easily the best burger i have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Wow, i cannot recommend this place enough! During my weekend stay in Berlin i ate her 3 times and would have gone back for more if i could. Located at the fringe of the trendy and bohemian Kruizberg. Sat slap bang in the middle of a busy road, and with a railway line running right over your heads, you would be forgiven to give this place a wide berth. But dont! Here you will find the tastiest burgers in the whole of Berlin, cooked right before your eyes with a backing soundtrack of classic hip hop, and a melting pot of fellow diners from around the world to talk to as you sip on a cold beer while you wait for your food as the rest of the city moves all around you, this is one unique experience.

When the food is up you will be blown away by the flavor and the quality of the ingredients used and all this costing less than 5 euros!

This place does get busy so be prepared to wait, but with great music, a relaxed vibe and a cool beer in your hands, trust me it is worth every minute when you get to sample the fantastic food!

Go there!

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

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.
