Best burgers in Berlin
This iconic burger eaten on the go, simply in your hand as you wander around the city, is one of life’s great joys. Why complicate it with extra toppings when the double cheeseburger with bacon is this close to perfection?
Super quality burgers and a great selection of beers make this the perfect place to start a night out. The portions are big, with the baskets coming loaded with fries so do make sure to come with an appetite.
A New York-style steakhouse, you can’t go to Berlin and not have a meat feast in The Bird.
Everything is made from scratch in house – including sauces – and the beef burgers use meat that’s been dry aged for a period of 30 days, making the beef more tender and concentrated in flavour.
Burgeramt has been going strong since they opened in 2008, with a focus on three key areas which are burgers, beers and beats. When you have a combination like that there really isn’t much more you need in life. It’s the simple joys, and you’ll find them all here.
This restaurant is well known for serving all kinds of grilled meats, from steak to sausages and pork. They do a great brunch menu (one of the best in the city) but it is the burger (especially some of their burger specials) that you should be coming here for. World class cooking.
Tommis Burger Joint is a small chain with restaurants in six countries. They keep things super simple and place a big emphasis on great music and atmosphere. The no nonsense combination of fantastic beef, fresh vegetables, the right mix of condiments, sandwiched in a freshly baked bun is what makes the perfect burger here.
The Lily Burger club has almost cult status among burger fans in Berlin. You can get unusual burger creations using organic meat, as well as variations with tofu for vegetarians. The portions are huge and the meat is seriously juicy. If you like burgers full of toppings and dripping with cheese, Lily Burger is perfect.
