“Bot bad at all...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014 NEW

We went there for burgers and spare ribs. Food was good - burgers were quite good but again = they weren't amazing, excellent or bad.
big plus is that we were able to talk and music was chosen fantastically. Atmosphere was very good. prices? well swiss prices - burger menu plus small beer is 25 chf
good place to eat but do not expect miracles.

“"burgers" from the freezer compartment of the local supermarket”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

As my friend from abroad was visiting and as it was her birthday, we decided to go for dinner with two more friends. The restaurants I usually go to for Burgers in Fribourg (Café Populaire and Café Cyclo - GREAT food) were unfortunately fully booked.
So we decided to try something new. The reputation on the Tripadvisor website made us believe the Crazy Wolf was a good choice. But I have to strongly disagree with the positive comments left by others.

When we arrived there was a large group of military guys in the restaurant, all set together on long tables. Though there were plenty more quiet tables a bit further in the back of the restaurant, we were put on a table right between them and the door.... :-(

I ordered a vegetarian burger with an additional slice of cheese (which I'm not sure if I found on my burger) which was going to be served with a side salad and some chips.
The chips I have to say were great.... though there could have been some more. The side salad was more like some garnish with one slice of tomato; not quite what I call a salad.
But worst of all was the vegetarian "burger" ... normally a burger is round, even when it's vegetarian. In this case it existed of 2 triangle shaped pieces of .... yeah what actually....??
The triangles were certainly not home made, but seemed to have come from the budget department of the supermarket. Something about the burger tasted funny... it wasn't off or anything, but it didn't taste great.

I can't speak about the food of my friends from personal experience, but also they said their food wasn't all that and also claimed the chips were the best part of the meal....

As such the Crazy Wolf is not expensive. But it's a few francs up from the other 2 burger restaurants I mention above. But what makes it actually "expensive" is the value for money.... If the food is great, it's a good price. Now it's not, I considered it a waste of money!

I will not go here again.

“Scandalous and yummy...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

...but that is just the sauces at this youthful, stylish restaurant specialising in burgers, steak and ribs. The vegetarian burgers and salads are more than just an afterthought too. Crispy, non-greasy chips. The combination of quality local ingredients, attentive grilling and savoury sauces makes for very tasty dishes. Carefully selected Swiss wines and beers too. Good value.

“Best burger in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

With a friend we have specialised over years in "squash & burger" evenings. We tried all the burger places in Fribourg and this is definitively the best one! They do not only serve burgers though, the chicken "tandoori" with backed potatoes is also great. The vegi burger is also nice. You can feel they pay attention to details and use locat / selected ingredients - the sauce, the french fries, the beers (local production), the salad, the homemade ice tea - everything just tastes great. It's not a tasteless salad and standard mayonnaise-based sauce like in McDonalds.. Plus the atmosphere is nice and calm and the decoration well thought-out. Difficult to find something to criticize there.
