Felt like having burgers while on a daytrip to Köln with my wife, and we were directed to Beef Brothers by a taxi driver. If I were to see him again, I would thank him for this great advice. The burgers here are simply excellent; the meat is of great quality and well made, and the burger as a whole... More

I think there's a lot of potential. The burgers themselves were too densest and flat. Couldn't hold the burger with out it falling apart. The chips were great, but a feel a bit riped off to pay extra for a sauce for them, I was sure I'm gonna get a special topping, instead they just squies some on the side...

Beef Brothers is a great burger bar. Service is quick, the burgers are cooked properly and very filling (even the smaller ones) and the portion of chips you get is enormous. Highly recommend whether you want to take your time or are in a hurry. Excellent value, too.

Mixed feelings about Beef Brothers - on one hand a cosy, small and busy place with a friendly service. On the other hand there is some improvement potential for the burgers - the meat was a bit too salty (might be a matter of taste, sure) but most of all the buns are too soft, you just cannot eat the...

Beef Brothers is well worth hunting down, best burger in town by far!! Cooked fresh and full of flavour, served in a large basket with a good sized serving of fries. The staff who all speak English are all very helpful and polite.

Busy we had high hopes after seeing so many good reviews, but sadly the burger was average at best and can't compare to standard American fair.

I heard about this restaurant from my Nieces. I am from New York and have eaten very good Burgers all over the States and in Germany. These were excellent Burgers and one of the best that I have ever had. Only the "Fette Kuh" near Chlodwigplatz in Cologne is better. If you are in Cologne and want a good Burger,... More

Great food and speedy service with a smile. They speak English very well. I had the BBQ burger and it was excellent. Was very busy so we had to eat outside but that didn't ruin the experience.
