We live close by and visited this place so many times in the past years but Die Fette Kuh has never disappointed us. For us by far the best burger in Cologne. Fresh and high quality ingredients, home made sauces (the best BBQ!!), handcut fries and patties on point. Dry aged beef for a little extra price. The place is... More

A friend took us to Die Fette as he said they made the beat burgers in Germany. He was spot on. A very busy and small casual eatery. All 4 of us had different burgers and they were all fantastic. We are told that the beef is all local and prepared on site. They are cooked to individual taste and... More

Translated as big fat cow, this place truly carries the meaning. The burger you get is juicy and fat. So you cant take a bite out in the regular way. You need to use the cutlery. The place i agree is small but it is still worth the while. I loved the different types of burgers with different types of... More

You will never know what a great burger tastes like till you came here. The meat comes from local animals, there is a special buns-recipe and the homemade sauces are just terrific. Here you won't find any bric-a-brac but pure taste. You order at the counter and wait excitedly for your name to be screamed. The fact that is it... More
