“So good we came back twice!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We had the chilli cheese burgers, they were yummy! The filling was great and the meat tasted so fresh and not greasy at all. There was no room to eat outside so we just went and sat by the river. We went back another night as we loved the burgers so much. We got fries this time too and they were also nice. Would definitely recommend this place for a nice casual lunch/dinner.

“Best Burgers in the World”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

This place is fantastic. Hidden beneath railway lines lies an old Toilet cubicle. Inside this cubicle is a trendy, busy, atmospheric burger joint.

The burgers are mouthwatering, the 1.50 Euro beers are a delight and the makeshift seats are a great touch.

The burgers are great value and very filling. Whether you have an appetite or not, take a portion of the Chili Cheese Fries as a side.

I would recommend visiting on a sunny day. Sitting down on the curb and watch the world go by.

“If you're a student..”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

I'd recommend that place to have a burger. I had a meisterburger with some jalapeños in it, it was delicious! It was cheap (4.20?) as well.

This place was recommended to me and when myself and my sister were visiting checkpoint charlie we decided to try and find it.
it took a while for us to find this (would have been alot easier to just jump in a cab!)
however it was worth the walk!
it is such a cool place to eat!
its located right in the middle of a busy traffic junction (which sounds bizarre but it adds to the fun of the place)
it was packed but we were lucky to get a seat.
we had a burger each and shared the chilli fries YUM is all i can say - wish we had gone here sooner in our trip but we now know for next time that this place is a must for a lunch time burger!

“Smaller than back in the day, but tasty as ever”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

For years Burgermeister has been the iconic metaphor of Berlin - a gem hidden in a shady, make-shift location. Where else can you get delicious burgers in a converted public toilet?

Quick and easy, you order and pay at the booth while the tunes are blasting over the beverage coolers, sometimes hip hop, sometimes techno, and you take a seat at the benches, or take your order and walk to the river, what I usually do, for a great Berlin experience.

It seems Burgermeister have introduced new buns, which although smaller than the old ones, are apparently seed/corn based, making them very tasty and unique. They have limited their fries options to standard fries, taking out the wedges, but still, it's all about the burger. You haven't been to Berlin if you haven't visited Burgermeister!
