2018’s 10 Best Burgers in Cairo
Is there anything better than having an ice-cold beverage and a massive juicy cheesy burger? We think not. They’re a meal you can have anytime; you can totally brunch, lunch, and midnight munch on this greatest invention known to mankind. It’s the same, but different. The bun. The patties. The toppings. The cheese. The sauce. It all matters! There are so many things to consider and so many places to go right or wrong; which is why we asked the people who know best – our foodies!
- The Mushroom Burger – Butcher’s Burger
Butcher’s Mushroom burger involves a juicy patty, Swiss cheese, mushrooms, sweet caramelized onions and is totally recommended by food blogger, @Omarsfood. “The Mushroom burger is currently one of my favorite burgers from my go-to burger place, Butcher’s Burger.”
- The Smokehouse BBQ – Willy’s Kitchen
If you haven’t tried Willy’s Kitchen yet, you need to go! According to @Elfoodette_Nehal, this burger is all about being messy and juicy with a pile of beef bacon covered with melty American cheese with hickory BBQ and Louisiana sauce.
- The Shocker – Shocks Burgers
The Shocker burger from Shocks Burgers is everything you want and more. Recommended by @Foodistaegypt, this burger is uniquely and undeniably tasty; served on a pressed bun with a juicy beef patty, caramelized onions, jalapenos and topped with a generous amount of blue cheese sauce.
- The Masterpiece – Butcher’s Burger
Another Butcher’s Burger to make the list is the Masterpiece. Definitely not a 2018 discovery, but still made our list because according to @cairomunch, it is “a real piece of art”. With two patties pressed in a finely toasted bun, layers of cheese, bacon, jalapenos, pickles and the secret Masterpiece sauce. A must-try!
- BRIX Signature Burger – Brix
Don’t be fooled by this Mediterranean-focused menu at Brix – their gourmet burgers are legendary. They’re not your usual neat and collected gourmet burgers; they’re both upscale and mouthwatering at the same time especially their signature burger. Just ask food blogger, Ahmed Elmalt (@malteaters) who swears by it!
- BOCCA Burger – BOCCA Eatery & Social House
When you think of BOCCA, burgers don’t necessarily come to mind which is why @foodiciousworld.eg thinks they are so underrated and cannot go without serious honorable mention: the BOCCA burger. Drenched in melted Swiss cheese and wild mushroom sauce, this chargrilled angus beef patty is grilled to perfection!
- Truffle Cheese Burger – The Cookery Co.
When you think of the best burgers, you usually think of messy burgers with oozing cheese and many different toppings. However, this French and Italian cuisine spot is anything but basic; rather it gives this Truffle Cheese Burger a run for its money; two Aussie beef smashed patties tucked with melted truffle cheese and lettuce between buttered brioche buns and, to quote @biteandbrag, is “Egypt’s best burger”!
- The Original – Mince
This burger most likely goes unnoticed because of Mince’s burger menu variety and that’s a shame because it’s definitely a classic. On your next visit to Mince, make sure to opt for the Mince Original with lettuce, tomato, melted cheese, pickles and some sweet bread perfection! “You absolutely cannot go wrong with Mince’s Original burger; it’s one of my favorites!” – @thehungrygiraffeeats.

- Milano Burger – Daddy’s Burger
@yummyinmytummy’s recommendation speaks for itself! Daddy’s Milano burger gets points for not only taste, but for creativity! The Milano burger features a super juicy patty cooked to your perfect temperature, salami, fried onions, tomatoes, mozzarella sticks covered in a combination of basil and arugula sauce. We guarantee you’ll need a nap after this one!
- Onion & Mushroom Burger – Shocks Burgers
Last but definitely not least is the Onion & Mushroom burger from Shocks. Another Shocks burger to make our list and honestly it comes as no surprise because this burger truck seriously stepped up its game! This Shocks’ burger is something of an all-American type; a hearty beef patty coated in melted American cheese slices, tucked between two buns and cushioned by sweet mushrooms and caramelized onions that add a sweetened depth. @storyofahopelessfoodie swears by this one and honestly, we can’t blame her! Can you?
There you have it, folks! This is our 2018 best burgers list – not in any particular order. Do you agree with our list? Are there any other burgers you’ve tried that are worth mentioning? Tell us in comments!
