Time Out Dubai has the lowdown on the best burgers in Dubai, from fast food joints to some of the best restaurants in Dubai. Just check out the pictures
Okay, so we’re not advocating trying one of these a day for the next month, but we’d be lying if we didn’t tell you quite how much you’d probably enjoy it.
From sliders to slop, kobe beef to Cajun chicken (and even quinoa), this list has a little something for everyone.
Time Out sensibly split the job of Dubai Burger Taster across our team – otherwise our sport and outdoor section might feel a little left out. And to help you out, we’ve divided the list below into convenient groups like café, gourmet, fast food, and something different.
Here’s the complete list of locations: Pantry Café, Reform Social & Grill, Mo’s, The Burger Joint, Biber Bar, Café Belge, Caramel, Claw, Dhow & Anchor, Feast, Rivington Grill, Ultra Brasserie, Original Wings & Rings, jones the grocer, Ruth’s Chris, Gaucho, The Steak Bar, Real Madrid Café, The Counter, The Palace Downtown, McGettigan’s and Mylo’s.
The Palace hotel's elegant, beautifully designed all-day dining restaurant isn't strictly a MENA restaurant, serving all manner of dishes whose origins stem from across the globe. The surroundings, however, are distinctly Arabian, with intricate curved arches, exquisite lanterns hanging from the high ceilings and dark woods and carvings. The terrace, too, is a pleasant, relaxed place in which to kick back, do a spot of people watching and take in the views of the palm-fringed pool and Dubai Fountains beyond.
Burger for Dhs120 (with fries) at Gaucho
A swish restaurant, decked out in cowhide and black and white leather, Gaucho certainly looks the business. It specialises in South American food but the Argentinian steaks are what draw in the customers. The excellent Argentine steakhouse serves one burger, with plenty of Latin flair.

This modern restaurant and lounge tends to attract financial types and is particularly popular mid-week for after work drinks and bites. Be sure to dress to impress in this slick and polished joint to look the part. The food consists mainly of bar bites and is perfect for a quick catch-up with friends over dinner or as a place to dine inside in a dimly-lit corner for a more romantic setting. Staff are well dressed and on the ball, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy.

With a bold and trendy look, combined with beachfront views over the Palm, West 14th has a lively, fun and buzzing atmosphere.
