You choose your meat, your toppings, your cheeses. All high quality and fresh ingredients. They grind the meat right then and there when you order. Also, inexpensive. The smallest size was more than enough and it was only 5 euros. It is worth the metro trip (we stumbled upon the place while walking home). It really is fantastic as attested by the one hour totally worthwhile wait. Try to go at odd times (like earlier dinner) to avoid the line ups.

Wish US burger places would take note of this place. It doesn't look like much of a place but check it out. They handed us an English menu, but we could have easily ordered off the Italian menu if necessary. We watched them slice our meat and grind it in front of us. Guy gave us free fries too! We argued whether eating with or without the bun was best. The bun was worth it, but you'll make a mess. Beef, pork, chicken and veal burgers available.

I've eaten burgers all over the world but nothing comes close to this. You choose everything from the meat in your burger ( and yes you can have a mix between beef/veal/pork/chicken) you pick how you want it cooked, how big you want your burger and what goes on it!!! The meat is cut from sides in the cabinet and ground and cooked in front of you. The end result... A big bite of heaven!!!!

The best burgers I have eaten in my life. Plan and simple. Go. You will see why after (1) visit. The Butcher Shop is a unique concept, executed to perfection. Have been (4) times now. Making a point to stop in every time we are in Rome.
Any selection of meat, toppings, sauces is a good one. You cannot go wrong. In Italy you find amazing pizza, pasta, etc. but don't think about Burgers. This will change all that. Go in- order, be friendly, and you will be amazed with your meal. Best. Burgers. In the World. Trust me.

It's a genuine and a truly amazing place! Very small but very welcoming.

They prepare one of the best hamburgers I've ever eaten in Rome: and you compose it the way you prefer it choosing everything from the meat and its amount to all other sandwich ingredients. You can choose that meat yourself even - great!

They have good beers, fresh ingredients, a lot of smiles and nice jokes in store for you. If you have a chance of going there, do not miss it!

It's absolutely worth every penny spent, every minute of your time, every mile of the distance!
