The owner of the place itself is worth the money. Very friendly and nice person. The food is cheap and very well cooked, especially the salmon burger. Dont miss the banana joe special sauce. A must try

“Great food & Friendly Owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Joe's burger is one of the best burger I have eaten. As I watched how he cooked his food, you know that he cooks them with love. Just like the way he treats his customers. He sacrificed his once big restaurant to share his love with his customers. He said this makes him happy.
If anyone is around Banana Joe's area be sure to visit Joe and eat his food. I can assure you satisfaction.

“Great food, great price, #1 service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

We were in Copenhagen for two days after a cruise and wanted to give Noma (named "world's best restaurant" by Restaurant magazine) a try. Unfortunately, we couldn't get a reservation. So we decided to try the best burger in Copenhagen instead. Banana Joe didn't disappoint! We had gourmet burgers in the states before, this is undoubtedly the top 1 or 2 we tried.

We ordered a chicken burger and the Banana Joe special burger. The meat was fresh and prepared by Joe after we ordered. Both burgers were moist and juicy. The Banana Joe burger came with beef patty and fried egg. We loved both. Joe's secret sauce was amazing! Too bad he won't give us his recipe.

Joe is so warm and friendly to his customers. He makes you feel like you're a friend visiting from out of town. Even though he is very busy, he'd still made time to talk to you. You can tell he enjoys his work. This is absolutely our most memorable experience in Copenhagen.

“Must try”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

I was with family and friends visiting Copenhagen. Before the trip, we looked up where to eat at Trip Advisor and Yelp. Both sites have high rating on Banana Joe. On our last day at Copenhagen, we thought we give it a try since it is just a 10 minutes walk from where we stayed.

Although the place is small and there are tables outside the restaurant, but the restaurant is clean and cozy. To our surprise. the owner does it all. He took our orders, he cooked, he cleaned and he served.

We ordered a burger (I forgot the name but it came with a fried egg) and a chicken burger. They were sooooo good. Chicken was moist and the sauce on both burgers were just unbelievable. One of our friends asked for the sauce recipe. Joe said it is his secret recipe.

Joe took time and have a chat with us. His English was good and he is funny too. He is a hard working honest man. We all very happy that we went there and have such a wonderful meal.

I highly recommend this place. It is a burger place but these are extraordinary burgers. Try it and you wouldn't be disappointed.
