What makes the best burger? In Heidelberg and elsewhere.
So what exactly separates the best burger from the rest in Heidelberg? Here are a few key factors:
Quality: High quality ingredients
The best burgers start with quality ingredients, including fresh beef, artisan buns and flavorful toppings.
Delicacies: Tasteful toppings
From classic toppings like cheese (whether Gouda or Cheddar) lettuce, tomatoes and onions to creative options like bacon bacon, avocado guacamole and fried eggs, the best burgers in Heidelberg are always topped with a variety of flavorful ingredients.
More than just ambience: perfect service
To get the best ratings, every diner needs a friendly team with nice service & passion – but also the ambience is important! An outdoor area with terrace, a stylish bar for hot and cold drinks: attention to detail counts!
Meat: Perfectly cooked
Whether you like your burger rare, medium or well-done, the best burgers are always perfectly cooked, with a juicy center and a crispy surface. Of course, this is just as true for a burger with chicken breast fillet!
Extra Flair: Juicy Sauce
Any good fast food restaurant should still offer its own sauces! This is important not only for the burgers, but also for the sandwiches & salads on the menu.
Slurp it up: Drinks & more!
Every awesome burger needs the right drink – we like restaurants with homemade lemonades, iced teas and milkshakes best!
A brief history of the burger
Although the exact origins of the burger are disputed, it is widely believed that the modern burger as we know it today originated in the United States in the early 20th century. One widely held theory is that the first burger was served at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri, where a local merchant named Fletcher Davis offered a simple sandwich of ground beef and grilled onions. Over time, the burger became a staple of American cuisine, and fast-food chains such as McDonald’s and Burger King popularized the burger worldwide. Today, the burger is enjoyed in many different forms and variations, from the classic cheeseburger to the veggie burger and beyond.
The origins of the word “burger
The word “burger” is thought to have originated in the German city of Hamburg (just shy of 570 km from Heidelberg), where a similar type of ground beef patty was popular in the 19th century. These patties, known as hamburger steaks, were usually served on a piece of bread or toast.
Over time, the hamburger steak evolved into the modern burger, and the name “burger” remained. Today, the word “burger” is often used for any type of sandwich that consists of a minced meat patty, regardless of its origin.
International burger chains
While the burger is often associated with American cuisine, there are many international burger chains that have gained popularity worldwide. Some of the most famous international burger chains are:
With over 38,000 locations in more than 100 countries, McDonald’s is one of the largest fast food chains in the world. Known for its classic burgers, fries and shakes, McDonald’s is a global icon.
Of formerly 5 McDonald’s branches in Heidelberg, three are still open at the moment: at Bismarckplatz, in Hebelstraße and in Breitspiel – almost in Leimen 😉
Burger King Heidelberg
Another popular fast food chain, Burger King, is known for its flambé burgers and signature Whopper sandwich. With over 17,000 locations in more than 100 countries, Burger King is a global powerhouse in the burger world.
There are two BGK branches in Heidelberg: one directly at the main station and one in Speyerer Straße towards Bahnstadt!
