Time Out says

Burgermeister’s flagship kiosk is still the very best in the city, writes Kate Bettes

What’s the vibe? 

The original Burgermeister under the Schlesisches Tor U-Bahn station is constantly buzzing, serving up juicy burgers to patrons on the go. Not bad for a takeaway joint that was built in what was once a public toilet.

What are the prices like? 

Expect to pay around €10-12 for a super casual, and bargain, lunch of burger and fries.

What should I order? 

That depends on your flavour. For meat eaters, they have everything from the classic hamburger or cheeseburger, all the way up to Meister Aller Klassen with its double meat, double cheese, bacon, jalapeños… we could go on.

If you opt on the vegetarian side of life, the Burgermeister Waldmeister with its soya patty and grilled mushrooms, has your back. And, if you’re a slave to the siren call of cheesy fries, Burgermeister has those too

What’s worth visiting nearby?

Burgermeister at Schlesisches Tor is very much in the middle of the action when it comes to the main drag of Kreuzberg and as a gateway to Rudolfkiez and Friedrichshain beyond.

On the Kreuzberg side, the indoor market, Markthalle Neun, is just up the road, as is the famous brunch spot, Annalies

Cross the Oberbaumbrücke over the River Spree to the East Side Gallery, RAW-Gelände Cultural Centre and the bookstores, cafes and vintage shops of Warschauer Straße.
