They offer a good selection of burgers with great taste that feels like a real Swiss burger. it's cheap and always a safe choice. Avarage menu is 20-25CHF. However, the fries aren't really good so, people usually don't really finish them. Some people consider the price of 20chf for fast food menu is expensive, I even remember there was a... More

Great meat. Proprietary beer, busy. Fairly plastic in feel. Clean. Not a huge burger so don't expect to leave full unless you have a Amex black card

Holy Cow offers a variety of good burgers at decent prices for expensive Geneva. This location could use some renovations. The staff is efficient and friendly.

the place was about to be rebuilt, but it was open, and their burgers (with swiss meat) and fries were astounding, as usual. A bit pricey, but less than a Five Guys !

For CHF20, got a burger with bacon, fries and a drink. Food was delivered quickly and was not bad. Nothing really special about it though.

The burgers here are really good, it's just hard to understand when your order is up, as it's very loud and you cannot hear them calling your number

Today I had one of the best burgers ever. The meat had a good structure and was accompanied by blue cheese and a delicious sauce. The bun was somewhat dry but with the sauces, a good mix. The height of the burger was well balanced between bread and meat. The fries were crispy. But... I don't go to often into... More

This place has some of the worst hockey puck burgers I have ever had. Dry, over cooked, and tasteless. The burger buns were as bad as you get. And all of this for only $20! To be avoided if you like a good burger and know the difference.
