“Great atmosphere and good value food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

When you first arrive the whole set up is a little surreal and I was wondering if we had the right place given that it's ranked so highly.
The shack they serve from is pretty small and queues apparently can get quite long (not something we really experienced) but the food is well worth any wait!
Exceptionally good burgers for a pretty reasonable price made the perfect meal for travellers like myself.
I would definitely recommend here if you're looking for a different experience and some great food with an awesome atmosphere.

“Not a restaurant as such but serves awesome burgers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

We visited before the Hertha BSC match for a quick bite and enjoyed every bite. It's by no means a restaurant - outside bench seats and inside standing only - but for a group of guys wanting a quick and tasty burger it was perfect.

The burgers / fries are succulent and the staff surprisingly friendly in comparison to most German establishments. The price is great and the overall experience felt genuine rather than pretentious which was nice.

Would go back again!

“Unique venue and worth to try !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I went there around 3pm with some friends and we got our burgers within 5-7 mins : ) We recommend you to try the chili cheese burger (if you're into spicy foods) and the chili cheese fries (sorry if i write it wrong). If you get bored with mcdonald or burger king then burgermeister is the place to be.

“Sums up the food in Berlin!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I was told that this was the number 1 burger joint in Berlin! The place was packed which is generally a good sign, although i could only say that the burger was average and nothing special. But i did find that the food in Berlin in general wasn't very good. I would suggest revising restaurants before you go. We did go to a nice Mexican, close to hear although i can't remember the name. Sorry.

“Great lunch venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

This little burger take away is in what used to be a public toilet, below a railway bridge. Seating/eating space is limited but the food is delicious. Burgers and fries at their best.
