“Not your American burger”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

Extremely crowded (noisy, long lines) with mostly young people seeking an American hamburger. But, what do Hamburgers know? Superficial resemblance to US fast food burger, but the bottom line is wait until you get home, Americans, for a better burger (unless you want to brag that you ate a hamburger in Hamburg).

“Block House Take Away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2011

This is Block House food for Take Away. The qualtiy of the food is just as good as in the Block House Restaurant, which is located upstairs. It is very crowded during the lunch hours, so it is best to come early or later. They serve good salads and different kinds of burgers. All of them are delicious. My personal favorite is the Mushroom burger! But I can also recomend the cesars salad with chicken. Location right at the Jungfernstieg is of course also faboulus!

“really, really good burgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2010

in my opinion the best burger place in hamburg. they have a few other restaurants in barmbek, othmarschen and so on. since i ate the first time there i'm not going to mcdonalds or burgerking anymore. the prices are more or less the same with the difference that at jim block they make everything fresh and you can watch them making your burger.

don't forget to request the "Burger Meister Card". For every 10 menus you get one menu for free!

“Suprisingly good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2010

It is a fast food offering fresh food, which is great. It is located in the centre of Hamburg, so it is crowded, but no problem in finding seats.
Prices are a little bit higher than McD, but the value for money is huge! You can choose from burgers and salads, both are great. Menu includes burger + french fries/ciabatta + soft drink. Great place to stop for a quick and cheap dinner. It won't cost you more than 15EUR for two.
