Description: כשהתחלנו בשנת 2004 כמסעדת המבורגרים קטנה ומשפחתית, לא תיארנו לעצמנו כמה מהר זה יתפוס. אבל מסתבר שמי שבאמת אוהב בשר – יודע לזהות מיד איכות, גם אם היא מסתתרת בסמטה קטנה בלב אזור התעשייה הישן בראשון לציון. מאז כבר עברו הרבה נתחי בשר על הגריל והמקום מיצב עצמו כמקום הנכון לבשר איכותי, מיושן ועסיסי… העיצוב אמריקאי עם נגיעות אירופאיות בחלל גדול וגבוה, משרה הרגשה של חו"ל בלב המדינה. המסעדה מתמחה בנתחי בשר גדולים (בוצ'ר), סטייקים מובחרים והמבורגרים מושחתים בגדלים מפתיעים. כל זאת לצד מגוון מנות יצירתיות לפתיחת הארוחה וקינוחים מפנקים שנעשים במקום לסיום מושלם. את הארוחה נלווה עם יין טוב ממיטב היינות הישראלים ובחירה מדוייקת של יינות מהעולם. גם בגזרת הקוקטיילים באה היצירתיות לידי ביטוי, החל מקוקטייל ספייסי שיפתח לכם את התיאבון ועד קוקטייל קינוח על בסיס אספרסו לסיום הארוחה. אנחנו במיטבול, קשובים לצרכי לקוחותינו ולכן החלטנו שגם לצמחוניים מגיעה חוויה מפנקת, כך שכל אחד ייצא מרוצה🙂 האווירה נינוחה ואינטימית ביום ותוססת בלילה – מה הפלא שהמסעדה כבר מזמן הפכה לכתובת מבוקשת לכל אלה הרוצים ליהנות משילוב מנצח של מקום בילוי וארוחה משובחת. אם גם לכם יש תשוקה לבילוי ולאוכל טוב, אתם מוזמנים לטעום בעצמכם מהחוויה!

The location may seem a bit odd (an industrial zone, about 20 min drive from Tel Aviv), but this is quite simply the best american style diner in Israel. The burgers are unbeatable in both size and taste.

If you are into hamburgers, Meatball is the place for you. It is a diner style restaurant specializes in burgers, that serves the best meat south of Tel Aviv. From the traditional "Meatball", to the "Chipotle", to the "Combination" all the burgers are excellent. You can enlarge your burger at 100gr increases and get your name on the "wall of fame" if you go high enough. The service is excellent, the atmosphere great and the value is good. We come here often.

The place tries to imitate an American diner. With the décor they did a poor job but with the food it is a different story. The meats and salads are excellent. French fried are better than those of McDonald's. Try the straight forward hamburger and/or enjoy the wonderful "sloppy Jo". If you go there for lunch – forget about dinner. Most important - parking is easy in spite the location on the northern part of Rishon's main road.

Now this isn't exactly fair: I'm no tourist in this restaurant. In fact, I live 600m away and eat there once a week. But I've taken more than a few tourists (friends and family from the US and Canada) to this place over the years and every one of them enjoyed it.

Rishon isn't a very touristy place compared to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, yet being 15 minutes from Tel Aviv and having a great beach and some historical points of interest there's enough reasons for you to stop by - and if you do, Meatball is the place to eat for any burger enthusiast!

There's a vast menu of burgers, toppings, side dishes and other delicious treats. Beer is served both drought an bottled and everything is very fresh and tasty. Prices are ok, you can find a slightly better value lunch menu but not even nearly as well made as here. Service is always good but there are no menus in English yet.

Come for lunch or a night snack, get a burger and some goldstar and you won't be sorry. Mind you, credit cards are accepted but you can't tip on them so bring some change if you like tipping the waiters.
