It is a perfect place to eat a nice burger with amazing potatoes and a drink for around 20 CHF. The choise of burgers is wide and now you can also have salad. I go there since a long time and I keep going back. If you chose the artisanal syrup you cam refill your glass as much as you... More

Burgers all bun and disgusting. Chips over fried with oil that is never changed. All servers unappealing. Open kitchen reveals chipped or missing tiles, dirty grills, unswept floor. Restaurant tables not wiped down. All in all - a serious miss - go to McDonalds instead!

It is a burger store but the food is of very high quality. The best value we saw in Lausanne. Its not a quaint traditional eatery. Its a burger place. if you are looking for quick service, a good burger and a cold drink (beer in my case) you can't go wrong. Cost us about 40CHF. Hint: Unless really hungry... More

It's one of those things you must do when living in Lausanne. It's a fast-food place, but more local and with more interesting choices. Burger menus with fries range between 16-24 chf and the service is great (super fast). Its not thw best quality burger, it tends to be dry sometimes, but its good for a fast food.

A very special must visiting restaurant in Lausanne. Still remember we had a King Kong Menu with Smokey Cheese menu which indeed fit out taste with a little spicy and unique taste with King Kong big burger and crispy bacon with not-so-greasy smokey cheese burger which I enjoy much! I will like to try their salad next time since I... More

I've just bought an hamburger with sirop. I've put in a second glass (kindly given to me by the lady who managed my order) a bit of sirop for my 2 years old baby. The staff told me I am not allowed to give a bit of my sirop to my 2 year old kid! This is how holy cow... More

Overall it was a good burger with a really good sauce and the fries were good. For 20chf you get a burger, fries and a drink and for Lausanne, that is normal. It is in a good location and very convenient.

Not nearly as good as I was hoping based on high reviews! It was expensive (as everything is in Lausanne) and my veggie burger was mushy. It had a lot of interesting toppings on it, but they weren't well distributed throughout the burger, so each bite would have either a gob of cheese or a gob of sauce, etc. The... More

The burger is very tasty, chips are amazing and all the sauces (ketchup-mayo-mustard) are for free. The place itself is nothing special but considering the concept of restaurant we are talking about, isn't bad at all. The queue is usually very fast and as I said in the title, prices are completely affordable (must consider we're in Switzerland). Truly recommended!
