Re: Holy Cow !!

The Hamburger Foundation does really good burgers too. Smaller menu but tastes great and high-quality.

Went there recently, I liked the burger (they don't have as many options as Holy Cow, I think it's just 3) and the place is nice too

Went there, its definately nice. Although i cannot call it the best burger in town.

Recommended other place would be:
Uroquis
Healthy Dinner
Heidy & .. (next to Enge)

All are more expensive though.

Even I must bow to your deductive skills. I would never have got Helvti Diner from Healthy Dinner.

Re: Holy Cow !!

How are the prices at Heidi & Tell?

I enjoy Holy Cow a lot mainly because of the low prices

they're about the same: a level higher than Burger King, a level lower than a restaurant.

Re: Holy Cow !!

What is the "Red onion jelly" ingredient like, they seem to include it in every burger?

It's a bit spicy and sweet, tastes really good It's actually milder than when you would add fresh onion to a burger.

... 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.
Sadly I have to agree.

I hate to discredit any food joint (especially a burger place), but I really didn't see what the fuss was all about. I've found umpteen many burger places marginally better than Holy Cow!

Overrated in my opinion.

Re: Holy Cow !!

Enjoy it while it lasts. If hygiene inspectors come visit Holy Cow Lausanne, it won't last long.
I discovered the newly refurbished place the other day and was amazed.
Staff have no appropriate clothing. Most of the cooking staff wore (well dirty) trainers, their everyday cloth.

My recommandation is do not eat there !!!

Holy Cow.....Fribourg!

Yip, that's right, signage went up this morning at the old Auberge du Chasseur on Rue de Lausanne.

Not sure when it's opening but they seem to be installing the kitchen today.

Very interesting to know who originated the chain!

Their burgers and specially the fries are still amongst the best in Zürich in my opinion. (I’m sure others will disagree though)
