“Great burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

After enjoying a couple of days worth of finely prepared fish around town, I went deep carnivore and picked up 270m grams of angus at Burger Bar (the Kolksteed location near the central station). With the 'small' frites. HIghly recommend the goat cheese as a topping. Not sure I'd have the curry sauce with the frites again. A bit heavy for the otherwise greaseless and delightful frites. Not sure the extra EUR for the wagyu is worth it if you go heavy on toppings. These are already expensive burgers for a guy used to paying domestic US prices, but the quality is good, especially if you want something good to go, like I did. Value-wise you just need to remember you are in old town AMsterdam and popular spots like this can support charging high prices. Took mine to go, can't really comment on the space (which was small) but if you like socializing with new people, this is a good place. I found the busy staff as helpful as could eb expected in a high volume, close quarters space. Don't expect lots of hand-holding when ordering, however.

“Best Burger in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Long lines and wait.... But well worth it. They have 2 locations in Amsterdam that we found. One has sitting room and the other is more of a "take away". We only ate at the little one and it was amazing. Had it for lunch 2 days in a row. 200g Sirloin with cheese, grilled onion and fries. Every time we go to Amsterdam... First thing is BurgerBar.

“best burger in amsterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

If we could say that burgers belong to junk food then the Burger Bar definitely gives an other definition.It is very qualitive if you think the actual time that you are waiting to eat.It is a bit expensive compared to other burgers but it cannot be compared.The average price for a 200g burger with chips and soda is 15 euros.The disadvantage is that the kolkstraat shop has really limited space therefor you cannot really enjoy your meal.

“Fast food from heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

The Burger Bar offers typical 'fast food' fare, but the ingredients are fresh and it's just excellent. You choose your toppings, your meat, your buns, and the burger is built and cooked perfectly. It's very small though so it can be quite crammed especially during winter. Anyway, great place for a quick yet yummy bite :)

“Excellent Burgers and Fresh Cut Fries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Excellent, juicy, made-to-order burgers and fresh cut fries. You choose what quality of beef you want and what size burger. One of the best burgers I've ever had. Walk up and order. A few seats inside and out. Located in the main tourist area of Amsterdam. A couple of doors down from the "In De Wildeman" Bar which I highly recommend for its friendly service and selection of beers.
