“Best Burgers in the World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This place is fantastic. Hidden beneath railway lines lies an old Toilet cubicle. Inside this cubicle is a trendy, busy, atmospheric burger joint.

The burgers are mouthwatering, the 1.50 Euro beers are a delight and the makeshift seats are a great touch.

The burgers are great value and very filling. Whether you have an appetite or not, take a portion of the Chili Cheese Fries as a side.

I would recommend visiting on a sunny day. Sitting down on the curb and watch the world go by.

“If you're a student..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

I'd recommend that place to have a burger. I had a meisterburger with some jalapeños in it, it was delicious! It was cheap (4.20?) as well.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This place was recommended to me and when myself and my sister were visiting checkpoint charlie we decided to try and find it.
it took a while for us to find this (would have been alot easier to just jump in a cab!)
however it was worth the walk!
it is such a cool place to eat!
its located right in the middle of a busy traffic junction (which sounds bizarre but it adds to the fun of the place)
it was packed but we were lucky to get a seat.
we had a burger each and shared the chilli fries YUM is all i can say - wish we had gone here sooner in our trip but we now know for next time that this place is a must for a lunch time burger!

“Smaller than back in the day, but tasty as ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

For years Burgermeister has been the iconic metaphor of Berlin - a gem hidden in a shady, make-shift location. Where else can you get delicious burgers in a converted public toilet?

Quick and easy, you order and pay at the booth while the tunes are blasting over the beverage coolers, sometimes hip hop, sometimes techno, and you take a seat at the benches, or take your order and walk to the river, what I usually do, for a great Berlin experience.

It seems Burgermeister have introduced new buns, which although smaller than the old ones, are apparently seed/corn based, making them very tasty and unique. They have limited their fries options to standard fries, taking out the wedges, but still, it's all about the burger. You haven't been to Berlin if you haven't visited Burgermeister!

“Streetfood worth the while!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Crazy good hamburgers! Always a line but so worth the wait!
The service braught the grade down a bit and there is no comfort eating atthe sight, but all and all awsome food!
