Ah, burgers! Who doesn’t like a homemade, juicy, with-everything-on burger?! As with everything else, Dubai has taken burgers to the next level and outdone most other cities across the world.

And let me tell you, compiling this list of the best burger places in Dubai may have been a bit of a task (because of all the fabulousness we were served), but boy was all the sampling beforehand fun! ;)

Without further ado, here’s our opinion on the best burgers in Dubai, and who serves them up!

Warning! The list ahead may (more like, will) make you drool!

1. Chicken Cheetos Burger at SALT

Cheetos on a burger? Say what!? SALT, a ‘burger truck’ on Dubai’s Kite Beach has fast become a crowd favourite, and a perfect spot to grab a delicious bite to eat and just chill. The silver Airstream truck not only finds itself in a fantastic location (right on the beach!) but also manages to satisfy all those crazy burger cravings. Their genius Chicken Cheetos Burger will totally keep us going back again and again...and again (you catch my drift? :P) The spicy deep-fried slider is not only covered in a layer of Cheetos, it's coated in a generous layer of gooey, melted cheese! SALT also serves up a couple of mouth-watering 100% halal-certified wagyu beef sliders, if you’re not that into Cheetos. But then again, who isn’t?!

2. Beast Burger at Burger and Lobster

Next up is a beast of a burger that won’t be easy on your wallet, but totally worth it, we promise. If you’re a seafood and meat fan, we don’t see why you wouldn’t like a burger piled high with BOTH! The Beast at the reputed Burger and Lobster consists of a succulent beef patty, a fresh lobster tail, and brie, topped off with a bun, and of course, fries! The burger is also served with a couple of lobster claws, which just adds to its marvelousness. The combo may not seem like it may work, but we absolutely loved it and devoured it all!

3. Empire State Burger at Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smokehouse

On our quest to find some of Dubai’s best burgers, we stumbled upon Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smokehouse. Offering a plethora of BBQ dishes, we just couldn’t get enough of this restaurant! The whopping, aptly named, Empire State Burger at P&B may not be affordable, not something that you'd just grab on the go, but boy, did it get our taste buds tingling! Beef bacon, onion rings, pickles, cheddar cheese piled high and topped off with fried mozzarella sticks?! One word...YUM!

4. SmokeShack at Shake Shack

If you haven’t heard of Shake Shack, it’s time to crawl out from under that rock, now! :P From their humble beginnings as a food cart inside Madison Square Park in New York, Shake Shack has come a long way! With multiple locations and some of the best Halal burgers in Dubai, this popular chain gets our vote! You cannot go to Shake Shack and not try the drool-inducing SmokeShack, which is a juicy cheeseburger, covered in all-natural applewood smoked bacon, chopped cherry pepper, and their signature ShackSauce. And once you’ve eaten your way through that, end your meal with one of their creamy, frozen custards! If this doesn’t hit the spot, we don’t know what will!

5. Elevation Burger at Elevation Burger

US Chain Elevation Burger really does elevate Dubai’s burger game. Offering a wide selection of juicy burgers, all with organic, grass-fed, free-range beef patties, Elevation Burger really impressed us. We opted for the classic Elevation Burger which consists of not one, but two beef patties, and cheese, it managed to tick all the right boxes!

If you’re a bit of a daredevil when it comes to burgers, try out the Vertigo at Elevation Burger - consisting of up to ten beef patties, it is most certainly not for anyone trying to watch their waistline! Warning: Loose pants are a must!

6. Honey Bee at Moylo’s Burgers

Moylo’s, in our humble opinion, deserves a mention as one of the best burger joints in Dubai, and so it's no surprise that the menu here, although not huge, had us wanting to order pretty much everything! Consisting of a wagyu beef burger patty, smoked beef bacon and cheese, all coated in a delicious honey-mustard BBQ sauce and aioli, the Honey Bee had us planning our next visit before we were even done! We also gave in and ordered the Moylo’s Burger - which deserves a special mention here - it comes with Moylo’s signature sauce, and let me just say, we could not get enough of the burger and that secret sauce!

7. Cheeseburger at Five Guys

With around 1,500 locations worldwide, the well-known US burger chain Five Guys is a go-to for an All-American diner meal. We ordered a classic Cheeseburger with A1 Sauce and some veggies, with a side of freshly cut cajun-style fries, and I don’t think we could've picked any better! It was a combination of small things, done incredibly well, so Five Guys gets two thumbs up from us! The burgers here may not be gourmet, but we can most certainly see why the chain gained this much popularity in Dubai so quickly!
