Classic Burger Joint  is celebrating its 2nd anniversary this month, so I guess it might be a good time to review what has probably become Beirut’s most talked about burger.

From one little joint in Sodeco, Classic Burger Joint expanded, throughtout the past two years, into a well developped chain, now counting 5 Branches (that’s including the soon-to-be-opened Hamra branch) and a delivery center.

I will go straight to the point with this one: I’m pretty sure CBJ offers the best burger in beirut. What makes it so good?

Well, first of all you have the buns,very soft yet consistent, freshely baked. Then you get fresh toppings, tasty sauces, melting cheddar-cheese. I guess the only weak point at CBJ is the patty, maybe it is not big enough, maybe it is not juicy enough…But apparently they did notice it and are now offering 180 grms patties, which I didn’t have the time nor the apetite to taste until now.

Concerning the fries, it seems they’re switching their recipe every once in a while. I personnally preferred  the very first ones.

What else makes Classic Burger Joint a nice place to have a burger? Friendly atmosphere (Teta, Fady, Moudy, Beshara, Firas…you guys rocks!), smoke-free environment, and good rock’n’roll music as well!

One last thing…if you’re going to CBJ anytime soon, skip on the menu and ask for a Lebanese.


Now one last thing, what is your favorite burger at CBJ?

  3. […] is a new place that opened at Le Mall Dbayeh, right next to Classic Burger Joint (talk about competition ). My visit to HD&B reminded me that there is a very thin line […]
