5 Best Places For Burgers In Beirut: Best Burgers For You!

For the past 6 years, I have been very careful about what I put in my body. I try as much as I can to eat organic fruit and vegetables, organic, free-range meats, no sugar, no dairy, and as few carbs as possible. I am very happy with this lifestyle; I feel lighter, and I also I feel that I eat exactly what my body needs. However, I have one weakness, burgers. Not just any burgers though. I love delicious and juicy gourmet burgers. Every time I travel, I make sure to try the suggested best burgers in the city and I also made sure to ask the locals.

As a newcomer to Beirut, I have made my own burger tasting list since I will be living here for a while. I have listed my top 5 favorite places for best burgers in Beirut:

5 Places For Best Burgers In Beirut

5- Happy Prince

Located in Mar Mikhail, Happy Prince is known for their outstanding gourmet burgers. It’s also a great restaurant for delicious chicken starters and cocktails.

4- The Butcher Shop and Grill

Located in Downtown Beirut, this Australian franchise opened up earlier this year. The meat is so fresh, coming directly from Australian cattle ranches. They are known for their highest quality of food and pleasing atmosphere and service.

3- Frosty Palace

Also located in Mar Mikhail, this small place that barely fits 20 people is known for their juicy delicious burgers. It is very busy, so be prepared to sometimes have to wait a bit.


2- Ferdinand

Located in Hamra, Ferdinand is a place with cool ambiance, character, and great food. Their signature burgers are made with their in-house blueberry jam that will make this burger’s taste unforgettable.


1- Smoking Bun

Located also in Mar Mikhail, this tiny small joint with the one item menu is my favorite! When there is only one item, you know it’s good. They serve their burgers, which are made with the best quality meat in a very fluffy bun with pickles, tomato, and lettuce. They have their special sauce as well. In addition to that you get to choose how you want your meat to be cooked and if you want it to be grilled with cheese or not. To take your dining experience up another notch, order their yummy french fries and grab a beer. Believe me, you won’t regret the calories!
