“BIG hamburgers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

Good food in the Old City and elsewhere. Large servings. Not only burgers, but other foods as well. Cooked to order so you will wait for it, but worth the wait.

“Not just a burger bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

Who would've thought? A very casual hang out in Jerusalem, Burgers Bar has amazingly excellent food.
Their burgers are meaty and delicious. Their buns are fresh. The green salad side dish is great.
Sadly, every time I've been there it's taken them a really long time to make the burgers but if you know that going in you just enjoy the company you're with or bring a good book. The food is worth the wait.
Prices aren't cheap but the food is worth the price they take.
The staff is really nice and they seem to be having a great time.
Expect crowds.

“Emek Rafaeim is the best Burgers Bar in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Food in Israel is no longer cheap, but the quality is beyond anything you'll find in North America. Burgers Bar is an intelligent chain of restaurants that provide outstanding food at a reasonable price. Their relatively new location on Emek Rafaeim is currently their best outlet. Not only are there more tables, they have included a separate cocktail bar next door that also serves food, and they provide a reasonably priced place to eat in this neighborhood of fine dining and shopping. This will be the best kosher hamburger you can have in Jerusalem, at the best price. They also serve salads, wraps, and chicken. Go ahead and add the fries, they are also delicious.

“Fast Food at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2011

I eat here often. They serve great quality food FAST. For those of you who don't know, Burgers Bar is a chain of restaurants in Israel and they have many branches throughout Israel. The menu in each is the same in every branch, as far as I am aware. I think I have eaten everything on the menu one time or another. The thing I like best about this restaurant is that you can "finely tune" your meal to choose what vegetables to have in your salad/burger/sandwich/wrap and also choose what sauces you want, from ketchup to mayo, garlic mayo, pesto, sweet chilli, etc. There is also an option to ask to double quantity of meat/chicken in your meal for an extra charge to make the meal more substantial if you are starving! The service is great and like I said it is fast easy food. But unlike Mcdonalds the quality of the food is outstanding, great 100% meat burgers, Great chicken and nice chunky fries. Highly recommended. You won't want to eat Mcdonalds again!

Depending which branch you go to, or where you are in Israel you are, the Burgers Bar may be open late, may have outside seating, a good view and delivery.
