“Best burger un Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

By far the best burger in town - but very crowded. Pretty hard to get a table....
Take away is a good option

“The best burger in Lausanne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Good stuff (even for Americans who fear European interpretation of the hamburger). Served fast for a quick lunch.

“Great burgers (for Switzerland) - pity the place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

If you need to satisfy a burger crave and can't stand being (seen) in a fast-food joint, head to one of the 2 stores of this chain in town. It has a great range of burgers and meats - the food is served fast and hot but finding a seat or enjoying your meal at a good pace in a relaxed atmosphere would be hard (especially on a Saturday afternoon).

“Best Burger in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

ok so there are 2 places really in Lausanne where you get awesome Burgers and Holycow is one of them. Only downside if it is really busy the Burgers are sometimes a little too cold or undercooked. But in general there is a fantastic choise and the Burgers are great. One negative point I have to give to the cleaning if you go there on a busy day the tables are sticky which is bot very nice.

“The burgers are great ! the place not so much”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

This place fell into the new fashion of luxury burgers. They are home made, with local ingredients and really good ! The choice is great and there are some combinations you have never seen elsewhere.
The system with the drinks is unusual but not so bad, you buy a glass and get as many refills as you want from a small choice of homemade ice teas.
If you are not into this, you can still buy a bottle, they have a few.

But :
- the price is high for burgers
- the place sucks. No really ! there are long tables with benches (!) and it is crammed full almost all the time, so you will not be comfortable.
- it is noisy due to poor construction and to the kind of crowd you will find there.

So my advice is to buy your burger there, your drink elsewhere, and go it the whole outside, for instance on Chaudron place nearby, if the weather is good, you will have a nice experience.

If you like burgers in general, you have to try this place at least once.
