I’ve been traveling for awhile at this point and was missing the taste from home. Then I came across this place. A burger spot in Japan?! Everything is good in Japan so why wouldn’t this be as well? It was so good! Really good burger....More

I love Japanese food, but like most people it is nice to mix it up a little. Please don’t judge me for seeking out a burger while visiting one of the great Japanese cities. By a stroke of luck I stumbled on Smile Burger only...More

Unassuming in every way, this place serves up some out of this world burgers. The meat melts in your mouth and the combination of sauces complements it perfectly. Had the cheeseburger and added egg and bacon. Would like to go back for the salsa burgee.

We stopped by on the way back from Kiyomizu-Dera and really liked the burgers here. It's a rather small place, but nice and very cozy and original. If you're looking for a burger for a change, this is a great choice. Highly recommended.

We stumbled into this small restaurant back in June because we were looking for something to eat and were craving meat. The man who was working there was pleasant and he makes such great burgers! There were lots of retro-nostalgic things to look at while...More
