This swanky place has burgers that is as good as it gets!
I brought my companion here last night; we made reservations for 7:30 PM. It was a wise decision, because while it was not crowded while we were there, it surely became one after an hour or so.
This is a burger place, but not the stereotypical casual burger eating place. No, this is one swanky place in the middle of the gay quarter of Schöneberg, a place that one could bring a date to. The interior is swanky, the menu was a collection of nicely-printed hard paper collected on a clipboard, and the silverware was definitely upscale.
I ordered the Egyptian burger paired with a Heineken, while my companion ordered the Hangover burger (it comes with a vodka shot on the side) paired with a Hefeweizen. One could get the burgers on white buns or whole-wheat, and from medium rare to well done.
When I took a bite from my burger, wow, it was heaven. I actually had to stop all my other thought processes to enjoy the moment. The Egyptian burger had figs, goat cheese, and thyme honey in it. And that was the most amazing burger I've ever had. I first thought that burgers aren't the best meal one can have while in a date, but this place changes that idea. This place has burgers that is as good as it gets. And I didn't even mention the fries, which are just perfectly done, not soggy, but just the right crispness.
I will definitely be back: after all, they have other burger types, including a lamb burger, a buger with foie gras, a duck burger, and so on. Bring cash, as this is a cash only place.
Food: delicious. The burger was impeccable--my only complaint was the relatively low quality lettuce and tomato, and less onion strings than I would've liked. But those honeyed figs... DANG. I got "The Egyptian," and would recommend it a thousand times over.
Drinks: The one and only place I've ever had a satisfactory Gin cocktail. Still a bigger fan of whiskey--and they have that too--but it was on their specials list, and was definitely a good pick!
Atmosphere: Music: Great choice of jazzy pop covers, at just the right volume. Service: fantastic--they even took my coat and let us stay a little past our reservation. A little surprised when we got served by a dude in a dress (this is after all in the heart of Berlin's gay district), but hey, it's a free country!
The bill: less expensive than I would have thought, but then again we're talking Euros and I haven't gotten over the exchange difference... So, maybe a little pricy. 20€ including tip.
Final Statement: AMAZING burgers, good drinks (if the beer selection is a bit sparse, the bar is fantastic), great service, slightly unusual locale. Four stars, minus one for the lackluster condiments. But only just!
I tried the Swiss Miss and I was disappointed. I love raclette cheese but they don't put enough of it, they might not want to hurt sensitive people's palet and nose but then they shouldn't use raclette at all.
Even the ketchup tasted more than the raclette....
Btw, ketchup in a burger is a crime...
I really liked this place. Tasty and original burgers and very homely atmosphere. Even simple chicken wings were amazing.
Great place, great food. Atmosphere was nice. The food was the highlight. just had a basic burger with cheese and bacon, being an American, everything has to have bacon. Staff was exceptional. I will tell anyone visiting Berlin to stop in and try it.out.
I was here two nights ago and had a really good time. The decor is very contemporary with an enclosed outdoor patio for smoking. I found the staff to be really friendly. The barman was very attentive and provided prompt service. The burger I ordered on the menu was very tasty. My only recommendation is that if you want a burger medium, you might want to order it well done. I ordered my burger medium and it came to the table medium- rare. No biggie. I should have done my own due diligence, and I would have known meat temperatures are different in Europe than in the States. This is the perfect place to meet up with friends or to meet on a date.
My favourite eating place in Berlin. The best burgers in town, probably Europe. Zsa Zsa Burger departs from the traditional fast food image of burgers to serve gourmet meat in a bun cooked to perfection. There is a flavour for every palate, from your traditional American through to Mexican and Indian curry flavours, vegetarians won't go disappointed either. Watch out for the weekly specials, amazing treats that make you come back for more over and over again. The staff are superb, friendly, welcoming and helpful, providing top notch service without ever being overbearing. Zsa Zsa is my home away from home.
Super leckere Burger. Eine gute Auswahl, faire Preise. Kann man nur empfehlen!!
