Default Burger in Dubai

So, I'm back in Dubai after an 18 month tour in Vietnam, in a town where for 9 months nowhere knew what a burger even was, and for 9 months a fast food place was open... but it was Jollibee.

So I'm craving a real burger. Juicy. Large. Mouth-straining.

Where has the best one these days? I saw there was a thread on this last year but it got closed. And with Taco Bell having shut down, I feel my own knowledge is no longer to be relied on.

If its a fast food burger you're after IMO you can beat Hardees, far better than McD & BK.

IIRC theres a Hardees just off the SZR before the MOE exit.............or is it after?

It's all relative... last time I had Hardees, it came out faster than it went in

Was hoping for something a little higher end...

I vote Burger Fuel or GBK. Sadly they don't have a Five Guys here yet.

I've actually had Fatburger at the Dubai Mall - it was good but I can't get over the name

Johnny Rockets is a thought. Not tried Shake Shack though. That can be tomorrow's dinner

I've never seen it busy, but I wisely avoid malls at weekends.


Typical - Chillis do some decent burgers. They have quite a few outlets including MoE.
