1. Berlinburger International Pannierstr. 5, Berlin, 12047

BBI has truly mastered the art of the burger. This Neukölln beef slinger features a menu loaded with options ranging from your standard cheeseburger to a BBQ Burger, Three Cheese High (Irish cheddar, grilled halloumi, mozzarella, and cream cheese), and many more.

2. Burgermeister Oberbaumstr. 8, Berlin, 10997

Flipping patties in an ornate, 100-year-old structure that used to be a public toilet (yes, you read that right) directly underneath the U1 tracks, Burgermeister wins points just for its setting. Sure, at first you may question its sanity (and whether it's sanitary), but its moist and juicy standards will quickly put all your bathroom jokes to rest. What’s more, it stays open really late (until 4am Fridays and Saturdays), so its chili cheeseburger and cheese fries can serve as either a tasty primer before a night out in Kreuzberg or a much-needed pick-me-up before heading back home.

3. District Một Rosenthaler Straße 62, Berlin, 10119

This Mitte eatery doles out Saigon street food that ranges from traditional offerings to its banh bao burger, which is nothing short of wacky and amazing, with pickled red onions, Vietnamese pickled vegetables, fresh coriander, soybean skin, mango, and homemade sauces (garlic mayo, caramelized fish sauce, and red curry sauce).
