'Schrnk' Review
If Wishes Were Burgers

Burgers are much more than just the sum of their ingredients. Grilling a patty and stacking it into a bun with arbitrary toppings and sauces simply isn’t enough. Schrnk’s attempt feels slightly superficial and ends up missing the target but more than a little.

'Rinderwahn' Review
Burger, Mon Amour

If you are a recovering burger addict, you might want to avoid Weihburggasse, right next to Stephansplatz: the sweet smell of grilled beef coming out of Rinderwahn will make you want to call up your sponsor at the speed of light.

'It's All About The Meat Baby' Review
One-Two Burger

Let’s agree to disagree: it’s not all about the meat. Good burgers need quality meat as much as they need a proper bun and harmonic toppings. Fortunately, despite the pretentious name, It’s All About The Meat Baby does not neglect this delicate balance and ultimately manages to deliver a delicious experience.

Dam Good

There’s a unique satisfaction in having a dinner that matches pretty much perfectly your expectations. Beaver Brewing Company is one of those rare cases where you know exactly what you are going to get without any surprises: freshly brewed beer and fair burgers.

'Omnom' Review
David vs. Goliath

In a city whose burger landscape is more and more dominated by big multi-restaurant players, sitting in a tiny parlor is actually kind of refreshing. Sadly, this alone isn’t enough to make Omnom an unmissable destination.

'Das Eduard' Review
Surprise!

Das Eduard is a cosy bar with very friendly service, generally good kitchen and a couple of interesting burgers in the menu. Even though, admittedly, on some unlucky days you might receive an overtoasted bun or an overcooked patty, most of the times you will likely enjoy the same surprising experience that won us over.

'Klein Steiermark' Review
Sprichst du Burger?

In the heart of Schweizergarten there is a (not so) little paradise for carnivores. Klein Steiermark’s menu boasts a number of Austrian classic and seasonal dishes, a legendary rack of spare ribs and exactly one burger that, alone, could give a hard time to many of the specialized restaurants in town.

'Burger Bros The Mall' Review
Bro, Hit the Breaks

It’s not enough to serve a great burger to be a great burger restaurant. It’s not enough to throw in the cool logo, the predictable cow statues, the wooden tables and the design lights. Burger Bros The Mall serves delicious burgers, but forgets the essential ingredient: passion.

What's With the Negative Reviews?
Or the Importance of Honest Feedback

When I started reviewing burgers I was quickly confronted with a moral dilemma: do I have the right to write a negative review? Should a random person like myself dare judge a professional restaurateur’s work?

'Teddy's American Diner' Review
Viva Las Vegas

The premise is funny, if a bit corny: burgers and milkshakes in 50s American Diner, complete with red and white leather booths, vintage pin-up Coke ads and the inevitable Elvis playing in the background. Teddy’s American Diner will serve you ordinary burgers, and then win you over with his unexpectedly charming personality.

'Laurenz4' Review
Holy Cow

After a while you think you’ve seen it all. The juicy, the dry, the safe, the experimental, the minimalistic, the over-the-top. Can a burger be still so bold that it truly surprises you? Have dinner at Laurenz4, you’ll see.

'Manzoni Burger&Steak' Review
Burger Pizza Mandolino

There is a widely known - but often misused - Italian expression that can be worth a thousand words, if delivered with the proper intonation, facial expression and hand gestures. So, picture a disappointed face and a strong accent on the first vowel when you ask “how was your experience at Manzoni?” and we frustratingly answer “Màmma mia…”.

'Said the Butcher to the Cow' Review
Say What?

You should never judge a burger by its cover. Very often a small and unassuming parlor might serve you a much better burger than a bigger and expensive restaurant. Unfortunately, sometimes we forget to consider the same thought from the other angle - a fancy restaurant might serve you a worse burger than an unassuming parlor.

'Weinschenke' Review
"This Is not a Burger"

A burger is like a frame to a picture: put a mediocre frame to an amazing picture and you’ll degrade the picture; do vice-versa and you’ll end up with a grotesque mess. The secret is in the balance, as well as in the confidence and honesty that you put into building your personal vision of a classic. Weinschenke takes this concept and somehow transcends it.
