No idea about the hype around this place.
The food is definitely ok but not as awesome as most people describe.
I wonder if they were eating leafs, dirt and dead pigeons so far.
For this quality the burgers are overpriced in my opinion, and honestly I already made better tasting burgers at home. This is one of the better places to get food in town but in that regard Hungary is not a fine place. All the expensive restaurants which offer world class food are around the Parlament, but that's a different story.
So verdict is:
Burgers are decent but nothing special, also overpriced.
Fries are awesome! Defo have fries for your burgers.
Imported drinks do some justice for the mid class burgers.
Staff is ok, they are a bit too friendly, but better than Starbucks guys, they just creep me out every time...

Was there with my husband last week. The menu located above the counter is hard to read. Specially for me with bad sight. They ask for your name, so when your burger is ready they call out your name. That was cleaver, however if you are a tourist and have an unusual name, the confusion is a fact. The burgers are small. Kind of pricy too if you think about what you get. 1000huf. Tastes ok but my bun was burned and hard. Not so many places to sit outside and kinda cramped indoors. Ok place. But as someone mentioned in a comment earlier: I don't get the hype...

We went here wrongly thinking it was some sort of bar with good burgers. It is only aghast food outlet. They are the best burgers though.

As an expat living here for more than 10 years one of the things I miss most is a good cheeseburger. Up until Black Cab opened my options were very limited and I had resigned myself to the home grill. Their burgers are freshly made as are their fries and it probably is the best burger in Budapest. That being said, Black Cab offers a good burger but not a great one. Quickly here are the positives: fresh meat, thick patties, good fries and good options for the burgers like bacon and jalapenos. Negatives: as is typical for Hungarian burgers there are way too many sauces on the burger...like the meat plays a backup role to the vast amounts of ketchup, mustard and mayo. The buns are also a little too crumbly and don't hold up well to the meat and yes, ocean of condiments (this is especially frustrating in a city with such good bakeries). The other negative is the lack of seating. It is very cramped, especially at lunch time.

So, if you are looking for a good burger in Budapest then this is the place. If you are looking for a great one...well we are all still looking.
