During my many visits to Burgers Bar, a popular kosher fast-food restaurant in Jerusalem, Israel, I explored a couple of their outlets, including the one on Jaffa Street and another on Ben Yehuda Street. Burgers Bar has established itself as a go-to spot for quality American fast-food cuisine in a kosher format, and it's evident from its widespread presence with multiple branches across Israel.

“Burgers Bar stands out for its quality food, reasonable pricing, and a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere.”

Burgers Bar, an Israeli burger chain, opened its first location in 1999 in Jerusalem's German Colony. It quickly gained popularity and expanded throughout Israel. In 2005, Burgers Bar was recognized as the Best Kosher Burger in Israel by Haaretz. The chain is known for offering burgers at competitive prices, similar to McDonald's Israel. All locations are kosher Mehadrin certified and provide a wide variety of toppings and side dishes. There was an attempt to expand into the United States, but the three locations there closed within a few years.

I’ve found the Burgers Bar on Jaffa Street to have great food and fast service. The price range is quite reasonable, typically between $5 to $10. This outlet offers features like takeout, indoor seating, including an upstairs level, and seating outside as well. It is wheelchair accessible, making it a convenient spot for visitors from families to solo travelers.

 

One of the most appealing aspects of Burgers Bar is its menu, which combines American cuisine with a gourmet Israeli touch. The meat, freshly ground daily, is available in various forms like entrecôte beef, classic beef, spicy beef, and the recommended House Hamburger, a beef and lamb combo. The hamburgers come with a selection of sauces and side dishes, including traditional crispy french fries and unique homemade Moroccan cigars. For those who prefer sandwiches or salads, there are special meat options and vegetarian salads available.

 

Burgers Bar also caters to special events, providing an ideal venue for small celebrations. This reflects their commitment to not just being a fast-food outlet but also a community space. Note that for events, it’s recommended to reserve about two weeks in advance.

Burgers Bar, like many modern restaurant chains, has adapted to cater to a diverse customer base, including tourists and expatriates who may not speak Hebrew. To accommodate non-Hebrew speakers, especially in a city like Jerusalem which attracts many international visitors, some Burgers Bar locations, including the Jaffa Street location, have implemented kiosks for ordering food in English.

 

These kiosks are digital touchscreen systems that allow customers to browse the menu, select their items, customize their orders, and pay, all in English. This feature is particularly beneficial for those who are not fluent in Hebrew, providing an easy and user-friendly way to order food without language barriers.

 

Burgers Bar stands out for its quality food, reasonable pricing, and a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. Its widespread presence throughout Israel, including multiple branches in Jerusalem, attests to its popularity and quality.
