It's a small place right out of the Old Bridge towards the Church. It’s very well knows by the students (that is why we came as our son studied 5 years ago in Heidelberg and was a regular in this gorgeous place). The service and attention are very relaxed and enjoyable, but the really important is the quality and flavor... More

I've tried almost all hamburgers in Heidelberg (there aren't a lot really) and this is definitely the best one. The quality of the meat and used and the fresh ingredients take the place a step higher. You might have to wait a few minutes if there isn't a free table, but that won't take long and, believe me, it's worth... More

Joe Molese is really a special place. The burgers are absolutely fantastic! I've been twice and have had both the Joe's Burger and the Cotto Burger. The food is so fresh and the burger buns are very good. The Cotto Burger got a little salty towards the end but I have never had a burger like that before! They also... More

I would go again for burghers there. They were pretty good and they have a 560g burgher for who has the courage for it. Quite impressive. All in all was a good experience. Beer is served at the right temperature also so really nothing to complain. Stop n eat there. Cant really go wrong.

I visited Joe Molese at a Tuesday evening together with a friend. We found a place inside (although it was pretty crowded) and the waiter found time to serve us quickly. He was friendly and fast. The food we ordered (burger and sandwich) were both really really good and freshly prepared! They have tasty sauces and a good choice of... More

This was my second time visiting. The first time I was with a basque-Brazilian and an African American; we came for dinner. They were busy but the service was decent and the burgers even better. So I came back a second time a few weeks later, but by myself for a late lunch. They were still busy but not as... More
