Holy Cow !!

yes, thats it.... Holy Cow !!

On the tail end of a lunch time expedition today thru the deepest darkest parts of the Paquis I came toward Cornavin.. and... discovered they had opened a Holy Cow restaurant ( hurts me to call a fast food place a restaurant but anyway ) just opposite the Hotel Warwick.

I've been meaning to try this place as I've heard good reviews but I try not to go south of the river.... bad crowd over there ya know.



very odd... it's not yet on their locations list...but I know it was there.. I saw it... I did.

Re: Holy Cow !!

I actually met the owner once day when I was having lunch in Lausanne and he told me they were opening in Geneva.

Re: Holy Cow !!

there has been a shop open in Geneva for some months now, but it's a fair distance from where I work... too far to run to for lunchtime, but this new one is much much closer.


err..................anyone know if they sell beer?

Re: Holy Cow !!

the one in lausanne (near metropole, there are actually two here though) does sell beer- in fact that local beer dr. whatever(oops edit- dr. gab's )made a special kind just for them (edit again- called 'burger brew'). i haven't tried the beer there yet though, i love the homemade iced tea too much!

Re: Holy Cow !!

I'm a huge fan of the Holy Cow in Lausanne. The burgers are great, and I like their idea to offer free refill of home-made syrups. Yummy!

+1. I noticed it today for the first time. I didn't realise it has actually opened.

I work in Les Paquis. I quite like the area. (hmm, that sounded better in my head).

Re: Holy Cow !!

... just back from my first ever visit to Holy Cow.

and I have to say it was good... but nothing to rave about.
I think Mr.Pickwick's burgers are just as good.

Unfortunately the one in Rive doesnt have burgers (or at least it didnt last time i looked), but they have a restaurant and they deliver. The pecorino burger is amazing

Re: Holy Cow !!

Good news for you guys !!!

BREAKING NEWS: The Holy Cow! revolutionary forces have polished their tanks and are now heading north east towards the Fatherland. We will open our first restaurant in the Swiss German region in downtown Zurich in mid April!
We are currently looking for Holy Cow! comrades in the form of burger chefs, aide cuisine, servers and chefs de rang. Please send CVs and motivational letters to jobs@holycow.ch before 15 February. Thank you!



One of my favorite places for reaaaaaly good burgers in Geneva.

(from their facebook page)

Re: Holy Cow !!

Im a fan of Burgers and Holy Cow serve a wide range of them, though you cannot go there to spend a quiet evening as you will be sitting with 10 more people. I recently visited a friend in Lutry near Lausanne. There is a burger bar called Non-Stop, they also have big choice but the atmosphere is more quiet than in Holy Cow. Besides meat is from the local butcher which is quite cool. Yumm
