Delicious burgers with many choices for customisation from size of the actual beef patty to options of what's included (lettuce, tomato, pickles) and extras (egg, avocado, fried onions etc) and then choice of sauce. Choice of how you want the neat cooked too. My recommendation is a classic burger without pickles. Avocado extra. Sauces- thousand island and barbecue. Meat cooked... More

We saw all the police officers eating here, and cops generally know where the good food is. Arguably one of the best burgers I have ever had. That said, they charged us 165 shekels for a couple of "all the way" burgers with avocado and mushrooms and a couple of cokes, so it means that these were also some of... More

Finally!!! A real north American gourmet burger. Best in Israel without a doubt! If your missing home and dying for a real patty. Definitely go here after a long day walking Jerusalem. Kinda wish they had curly fries or spicy fries.

I ordered for my family last week. When we got to our hotel, and after fininshing, my daughter stated she found a bug that looked like a sesame seed. Of course the buns have seeds on them. She pulled it out and flung it before I could see. She is 16 and said she saw it moving. That just quelled... More

We got there a few minutes before they were ready to close for Shabbat on Friday night. They took our order immediately and got us out of there in no time. Great food and really friendly staff.

Ate here twice in three days because my husband loved the big, juicy burgers, cooked to perfection. The chicken schnitzel salad was delicious too.

Of course there are zillions of options in Jerusalem to eat, but if you like to get back to something familiar in the Jaffa Street / Ben Yehuda area, the Burger Bar slightly hidden in Shamai street is definitely a good option. If your Hebrew is not perfect, you can make your selections on an English menu - and if... More

I came here with my family and had a great time. The prices were decent and the food was great. I recommend getting some of the mini burgers, as they come with toppings on the side which can be convenient if your with a group of people. It is primarily for burgers though, so don't expect much else. There is... More
