Never had a burger this good in the whole of Switzerland, nevermind Zurich. Good prices, fresh ingredients, great atmosphere, location is easy to reach.

I am a self-professed burger lover so you'll just have to take my word for it!

Maybe someone has already mentioned this, but the Helvti Diner has quite good burgers (but expensive): http://www.helvti-diner.ch/

Re: Burger in Zurich

As a burger addict, I can't believe I haven't been to The Bite yet!

Everyone I know raves about it. I've got to make it there soon...

The Bite is awesome. I've never had such a good and tasty burger.

Re: Burger in Zurich

I really think you should try to shift to 'Bratwurst' and get them at Bellevue (Vorderer Sternen) - A Zurich institution and great food

No thanks

While I do enjoy going to Sternen occasionally, for me a burger will always come before a bratwurst. Always.

Really 25 to 43+ dollars for a 6 oz burger...and not even a black angus steak burger and this is a good price?

Yes, agree on this one and would like to add this one: Korner near Stockerstrasse, www.gourmetburger.ch Despite the name, the cheapest burger is CHF 20 which I'm sure you all know is pretty standard for Zurich. The burgers are superb.

(if it's been posted already - sorry, haven't read through all pages)

Re: Burger in Zurich

Yeah exactly. Never had a good burger in Europe, really. If you have really low standards and like to waste money, then burgers in Europe (and in Singapore) are the things for you.

Oh, but you missed the part on the menu; "...of our secrect Swiss beef blend." It's like sausage, only hipper and more expensive for those who want to believe it's the real deal. Only burger I ever liked was from the place up on the A3, Cindy's Diner. I think you can get a decent burger for under 15 chuffs.

Re: Burger in Zurich

Blog in German about the best burgers in ZH. One new one I can give a thumbs up to is bgood, they have one near me on Langstrasse and another one on Oberdorfstrasse. Hand made patties, choice of bread and different toppings. They are half restaurant, half takeaway and they also do sweet potato fries and excellent salads. They're an American chain and I think these are the first ones in Europe.

There's also a new burger place in the old town which I haven't been to yet Butcher. It's next to Eddie's Wine bar and they have tables outside in warmer weather. Anyone tried their burgers?

They are quite nice. But, it needs more meat in the burgers and they have this weird cheese mix they use. They do have nice fries.

I'll have to try this bgood place.
