“Hmmm... fries!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

This place has awesome burgers and good steaks (though the steaks are less impressive than the burgers). But the single best reason to visit is: the fries! One of Berlin's most ridiculous problems is the quasi-impossibility to find (even half decent) home-made (not frozen) fries anywhere. If you know anything about good fries, you'll know they're not supposed to be perfectly geometrically cut, all white, and skin-less. If you know what I mean, then head over to The Bird.

PS: They also have awesome beers and super friendly staff. The service is somewhat slow and chaotic but I wouldn't want it any other way.

“Large american fare in Berlin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

All my colleagues raved about the burgers they had here saying it was one of the best they have ever had. I had the veggie burger and it was good. If you are looking for light fare or skimping calories, this is not the place. The portions are huge and greasy. All the waiters speak English. The place is super crowded and their menus have some hilarious statements. For example, my veggie burger was called "Lousy hunter". If you are into burgers and are in Berlin, this is the place to be.

We also had chicken wings and I was surprised that the spicy wings were indeed very spicy. But you can also douse it with beer.

“Everything you heard is true.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

A travel guide in berlin said 'the birdhaus' is one of the best burgers i'll ever eat - she was right.
The place itself is awesome, great atmosphere and everyone speaks english! The menu is also in english.

We didn't wait long and the food was worth every cent. Best fries ever, perfectly made burgers, delicious buns. You get alot of food on your plate - the prices are fair.

The bathrooms are very clean, but there is no air freshener - the smell is quite bad.

Reserve seats! The place is always packed.

“BURGERHEAVEN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

This place had come recommended and definitely lived up to expectations! a New York style bar and grill, friendly staff and great massive burgers served with mounds of fries (far too many too finish). Also, if they try to sell you Napalm Wings, DON'T DO IT unless your stomach is lined with lead, it's like licking the surface of the sun!

“Napalm Wings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

If you come here, you must must must try their signature dish, the Napalm Wings.

(I would suggest popping a toilet roll in the fridge for the next morning, as you'll very much need some soothing).

Amazing little restaurant with burgers the size of your head.

Book in advanced as this place is always busy, and rarely has walk-ins available for more than 1 (which is at the bar).
