“The Absolute Best Burger”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Exceptional burger - as close to an American one as we've found in Switzerland over the last 18 months. Had the Elvis blue cheese one - delicious. Cute place. Informal. Friendly. Definitely coming back. One thing missing: onion rings please :)

“Great food, great place!”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Delicious burgers and fries alongside selfmade siroups which can be refilled for free. Try the chicken, camambert and cranberry burger - you surely won't be disapointed.

“Pretty Close to the Real Thing”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

As an American expat I am constantly on the prowl for a good hamburger, and Holy Cow is about as good as it gets in Switzerland. The burger, while not quite the Platonic Archetype, was fine, and the variety of available toppings makes me want to try it a few more times. The fries, for there part, were excellent, and while you should go for the burger, you could just get some fries and be quite satisfied. Be advised that the space is small, and all the seating is at communal picnic-type tables. Also, don't plan to wash it all down with a coke--local beers, water and juice only. We'll be back.

“Nice meal”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

We needed a quick bite since we had been traveling all day and this hit the spot. They don't have soda pop but do have a big selection of juices.

I tried so many different places in Zurich and actually if You are looking for the best burger this is the place to go. The best part is that they have amazing vegetarian burgers and more than one type! On the other had price and quality combination is also one of the best I've seen.
