    Nice burger & fries. Ordered sweet potato fries. So good. Service stank up the joint. Took way too long to get our burgers. Waiter needs some people skills.

    Restaurant set up bench style seating.

    I've been to the Ranelagh branch and to the city center branch a couple of times and I have never been disappointed. I can honestly say they make the best burgers I've ever had. I have taken the chicken (non-spicy) and the vegetarian burger with different topping and it was always very good. I've also tasted the lamb burger once and it was very good, the lamb was as tender as it should. I don't eat beef so I cannot confirm for the beef burgers.

    All the toppings choice I've taken were very good. My favorite one is the one with banana - it is so different than what is traditionally done but when you taste it it's awesomely good. The cheese toppings are worth it also.

    I like the lemonades, they are very good, and the restaurant has a good choice of beers as well. I have never tasted their wine.

    The fries are very tasty, especially the sweet potato fries.

    I personally prefer the Ranelagh branch that I find quieter than the city center one. The restaurant can be very loud at times which I do not appreciate. It is sometimes even difficult to have conversations with your friends because the music is way too loud.

    Tip for the new joiners: it seems expensive at first but the portion are huge. You can easily share the fries - you don't need 1 fry portion per person. I think 1 fry portion for 3 persons is good, and even then you will leave the restaurant you will feel full.

    Oh my god. These are the best burgers in Dublin. The selection of meat is fine, the quality is unquestionable and the toppings: Well... from the simple standards to goat cheese banana toppings - creativity rules. Go there to have a burger, especially if you come from a country where you only get Burgers from McDonalds.

    LOVE jo'burger. The vibe, food, music and staff are awesome. It is pricey though expect to pay €35 for two burgers and two chips... But I can promise you it's worth it. Keep an eye out for the one with the chilli fried banana. You will wonder how you will ever go back to a normal burger. Also the "deadly fries" change recipe on a weekly basis so bit of a roulette in terms of taste!

    A beef burger with goats cheese and carmelised banana?! Wrong you say? Or so so very right?

    This beast was absolutely right in many ways. I am a freak for the combination of weird flavours together, and have a current obsession with goat's cheese, so it suited me down to the ground. In fact I'd go so far as to say that anyone who tries it may think the same, no matter how skeptical they may be. The meat too was dense and excellent quality.

    Now for the bug bear. It's just too tall! More of a fan of UFO shape than a Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Jo' Burger just ain't structured right.

    The thing is, if it's that tall, you're never going to get the perfect bite each time. In fact, it's going to be a struggle to get two of the five or six ingredients in each time, with all the falling all over the place they're doing. What you need is a nice wide bun, it enables better dispersion of fillings, and prevents loss of the tasty stuff.

    I have been told however, that it is possible to get a burger in here in a tortilla wrap. Now that could be a solution!

    This place was just strange. Very weird atmosphere and music. I read an article online and this place was supposed to have one of the best burgers in the world... Not even close. The burger was good but definitely not the best. The atmosphere just made it awkward and not very enjoyable.

    Best meal I've had in Dublin (so far).

    I love the concept - pick your meat, pick your buns, pick your style.  I had a lamburger with mint and harrisa sauce, and it was incredibly delicious - especailly on a cold wet winter evening.

    I was really looking forward to this experience, however it left me with a "meh" feeling.  Firstly, I was there by myself on a week night and it took 1 hour and 10 mins for the meal.  The service was sloooow. and the place wasnt packed.
    ok, onto the food.
    I ordered the beef burger with the smoked applewood cheese, apples and Jo' relish. I also added the bacon.  
    I ordered the chips with a side of pesto Mayo.  for my drink I chose the lime ginger lemonade.

    The burger...well I had to take three bites before I even got to the meat.  I found the burger dry (95% fat free beef is NOT a good thing for a burger. If I was dieting, I wouldnt have added the cheese and bacon).  i found it flavorless as I was hoping it woudl have a chargrilled taste.
    The cheese didnt taste smoked and I'm not a fan of the sweet chutney like Jo' Relish.

    The chips were good as was the Lemonade. But,  I've had better burgers in Ireland.
    If you are going to be a burger joint, then you have to do a fabulous burger.

    When I usually write reviews, I tend to look for reasons on why the experience wasn't perfect, and why they didn't get 5 stars. However, at Jo 'Burger, I think my experience was near flawless.

    Burgers: Juicy, Tasty, Huge

    Fries: Just perfect, and large amount

    Lemonade: Homemade and just the perfect drink to go with your meal

    Service: It's not a fast food joint, and the burgers taste fresh, so it takes a little time to cook, but that should be expected.

    The seating area is small, and although we went for lunch, I can see it possibly getting crowded in the evenings. However, this is one place people should go, it's worth it. You get a lot of food for the price, and you'll leave feeling like you just got done eating at a buffet.

    Quite possibly one of the biggest burgers I have ever had. And I'm from America where portions are over the top huge. No one that I went with was able to finish the entire thing. That said, the burger was actually really nice.  I can't remember the name of the burger I had, but it was the one with bacon, brie and relish. The meat was very juicy and cooked perfectly and the toppings complemented it well. The bread was amazing, but so big...the thickest bun I have ever had on a burger.

    We also had the sweet potato fries and a special chili spiced fries with garlic mayo that weren't on the regular menu and they were both amazing.

    Oh Jo Burger. I am so full. What was I thinking having the lunch burger with cheese, fries and lemonade?! Can only type. Not move.
    Delicious. Delicious. I've had a craving for a Jo Burger for so long but none of my friends really like burgers that much. (Why are they my friends you ask!) And finally, another Canadian suggested this place for a business/casual meet up and there I was. In a flash.
    My eyes are bigger than my stomach. Had to say it. The burger itself is ginormous and I added cheese and with the mountain of lettuce and homemade relish, it was quite enough.
    My friend said I should order my own side of fries as he wasn't ready to share. That was just a big mistake. I struggled. I really did. And I nearly made it, but failed in the end.
    Why am I taking away a star after such a glorious praise of the food. The service was ok. The lemonade came after the food was served. I don't know. It wasn't that busy, so no reason why the waiter couldn't have asked how we were doing. We actually nearly left without paying the bill. Not intentionally mind you. But nearly.
    Good thing the waiter was ready to get our money! ;-)

    What do you do if you are having an epic week of deadlines, meetings and craziness?

    You eat half a cow that's what you do!

    Sometimes a girl needs a wad of red meat. I got the burger with apple cheese, apple slices that worked so well. The meat was pink in places just the way I like it.

    I prefer to eat out from here to be honest, as I can pig out in the comfort of my house and listen to my tunes etc. Also definitely go for the beef.

    I got the bush fries which where perfectly seasoned. I also ordered a cool ginger beer... This was all to go in a box that looked like what you put a cat in... Really impressive product design.

    Fail for forgetting my drink... Double fail on me for forgetting to check my order before leaving - learn from my stupidity...

    This was a pretty nice place I must say:

    -Calm and hip atmosphere,
    -Bench style communal seating,
    -No fuss easy waiters with recommendations,
    -Vegan friendly food options,
    -Decent and creative food,
    -Amazing delicious Lemonade!

    Seriously, go for the lemonade people!

    So, it's a cool place to go, and they know it. it's pricey, because they know that can charge it. Always seams to have clientele and such, so their business model has found it's happy equilibrium. Personally, I'd like it a few euros cheaper, hence why only four stars, but I'll admit I've paid the same for lesser food. Though...it is kinda hard to screw up a burger.

    They had croquets that I wanted to try, but I had to buy a full platter, I couldn't just try one. As such i ended up not ordering them after excessive negotiation. The guy was legitimately sorry I couldn't just try one to see if I liked them, so that's worth noting.

    I'll go here again I'm sure.

    I really don't understand the fuss about this place.....

    Crazy loud music in a burger place to the point where you can't have a conversation? Uncomfortable seats? I am not having a picnic in Glendalough! Seriously..........

    The food is nice enough and all but not amazeballs nor nothin'

    Overpriced too - up to €12.50 for some burgers and they have NO side???

    Staff have never been overly friendly either anytime I have been here, especially when the place is really busy. It's a real get in, eat and get out cos there are other people waiting kind of attitude they appear to have.

    I am generally not one to enjoy somewhere trying to be "too cool for school" and this place epitomises the saying.

    They really do concentrate far too much on the "cool" aspect of this place which grates on me. Can you tell?

    There are too many great things to say about this place so I'll just have to sum it up in the best three words I can think of to really define the essence of this place:

    This time I had a sweet potato burger with green thai curry sauce, coriander, and tons of chili. It was the size of my head and HOLY BAJEEZUS was it delish. I wish I could buy 30 of these burgers, spread them all over my bed, and roll around in ecstasy on top of them. I am serious. This scenario includes some of their spicy bbq ketchup sauce as well.

    Aaaaand, even though last time I told hubs we wouldn't order sides or fries because the portion is so huge, the specials board described pink peppercorn parm + coriander fries. So the gods deemed that I wouldn't be able to resist and I ordered them anyway. And I was served a small mountain of tasty fries covered in small crunchy peppercorns. And I declare that it was good. The fries have mentally been added to my burger-rolling fantasy, if only for the added texture...

    You know that a place is serving a proper burger if they ask you how you want it done. Nowadays with all the mad cow-bird-flu-monkey-fever fear mongering on the news all the time, most places won't even ask anymore and consequently cook the meat too much and ruin it.

    God bless you Jo, you and your bloody meat.

    There are so many styles of burgers and options that you have never heard of anywhere. I had the brie and bacon burger. Every style comes standard with lettuce, tomato and a great house mayo and the buns taste homemade. If you don't want beef you can have chicken or lamb and if you want to think that your saving animals that have already been killed anyway, there are two kinds of veggie burgers to choose from.

    The sides were very creative. The Sriracha fries with coriander mayo had my wife almost soiling herself with delight. I actually did.

    Even the salad that the lady next to me was eating looked massively meaty and delicious.

    OK, ok... I am a now a Jo' Burger convert!

    On this occasion I decided to throw caution to the wind and try the beef burger again and with that I went for the Mofolo burger on a tortilla wrap. OMG... a burger in a tortilla wrap?? Who knew.... well, obviously Jo did, but I didn't. It was perfect, ideal in fact for eating a burger as it held everything in.

    The Mofolo consisted of chipolte, pineapple, balsamic relish and rocket. And it really worked... but IMHO pineapple makes a lot of things better ;)

    We also went for the Onion rings and the Sweet Potato fries. Both really good and lots of them. Honestly you would only need one side between three people (three girls anyway).

    Again the service was a bit casual, but that's never gonna change...

    PS I am going to be back for lunch sometime soon, the chip butty on the lunch menu has caught my eye (",)

    I don't get it! everybody loves this place and I just don't know why!

    Maybe its because the veggie burger was just plain boring and to appreciate the place I would have to have one of their dead cow burgers, but surely if a veggie burger is on the menu it should be fit for serving to paying customers? It was dry, bland and really floury and no amount of sauce would cover those things.

    The music is awful and the trendy then thou staff can go and shite ans stick their lazy arse attitude up their jacksey!

    Plus, it is feckin expensive!

    Was happy to go back to Jo'Burger as my colleague always tells me these are the best burgers in Dublin and I haven't been for a while.
    Having a voucher at a great discount over the original price made it even more attractive.

    Arriving we were very happy that the place wasn't super-busy yet on a Saturday night, good we arrived early and got a seat right away.

    After asking how it works exactly with the vouchers there was a little disappointment as we could use them with any burger and the normal fries, but not the sweet potato fries I liked the last time - it was also not possible paying up. Even my crazy mathematical story that the "value" of the voucher doesn't add up with burger+fries remained unheard. I didn't want to make a fuzz after I just spilled my water - but a bit of leeway from the place in terms of 30c would have been appreciated a long way.

    We ordered our food and some of the crazy soft drinks they have (ginger beer and raspberry lemonade - delicious, but they come at a price of over 4 Euro for a soft-drink) and before our food arrived we were moved to another table so they could move a group with a wheelchair in our spot. That was ok, just the staff was speaking and moving so fast we could both hardly understand them. We waited maybe 15-20 mins for our burgers - the place was busy, so I guess this is ok, but we were starving.

    Anyway, finally the food arrived and it looked delicious. These burgers are BIG - and the salad is coming out on both sides. I had a Tladi with apples and beef and my gf had a bari with peach curry sauce and lamb. However, something is missing there, and I remembered I was slightly disappointed last time. All the ingredients weren't as flavourful as expected so what remained was basically a giant burger. Also the lamb patty of my gf's burger was much smaller than my beef patty so she had to go through a lot of bread and salad to even reach the meat. And even then she wasn't blown away. The fries were good homemade fries, but nothing special like the sweet potato fries or the rosemary fries from the competition. It's good that the meat etc is all organic, but something was missing from the flavour - they don't live up to what the menu suggests.

    So I'm not complaining here, I got a great deal for my money, but if I paid full price of 12.50 for a burger, and 4 Euro for fries and soft drinks each, I would have expected a bit more. I think Real Gourmet Burger in Dun Laoghaire has much more balanced flavours where everything fits together, the lamb burger there is still my favourite burger in Dublin. Jo'Burger is bigger and hipper, but I don't think the flavour is better than at the competition and prices are slightly higher.

    I've had 2 Jo' Burger experiences, one in and one take-out.

    My first was a take-out experience. Jo' Burger very kindly sponsored an event called 24theweb in November where 3 teams of web designers, developers and writers came together to create websites for charities in 24 hours.

    In total there was about 30 people involved and they fed us whatever we wanted from the huge menu. It was delicious, promptly delivered, great packaging and the orders were bang on - no mean feat for so many!

    My recent eat-in experience is more fresh in the mind which is a bit more useful for review writing :)

    I'm not a huge fan of burgers in general and think that the explosion of burger "restaurants" around town is sadly often a convenient way to make a quick buck on simple food.

    Thankfully I was proven that Jo' Burger is an exception to that rule. It was a late dinner so I opted for a lighter veggie option, one of 2 - chick pea, red pepper and coriander and topped it with fresh salsa and avocado. The other half went for the special burger and special fries or the day. His burger I can't recall but the fries were homemade with a wasabi spiked coleslaw, spring onion and sesame seeds.

    The burger was delicious and the fries were a revelation. I was completely over the moon with my pitcher of homemade lemonade which hit my very big thirsty spot while himself had a fancy craft beer.

    Pros:
    Fantastic creative, original menu with some great surprises like homemade lemonade (which can be spiked with something stronger should you choose), superb presentation and wonderfully fresh ingredients.

    Cons
    The music is loud (sorry to sound like a granny) and I was straining to hear my other half from across the table. It's a long table/bench type seating akin to Wagamamas so not the most comfy in the world especially if you're a bit wrecked.

    I feel like I can't comment on service as my other half is an acquaintance of the maître d' but things seemed to be fairly on the ball in there.

    Nice work guys n gals, keep it up!

    After seeing the reviews and the variety of burger styles online I had high hopes for Jo Burger. We headed over there on a Saturday afternoon last month to give it a try. Upon walking in the place had a great atmosphere and I liked the look of the tables and servingware. Our waitress quickly brought us waters and took our order. I went with the moraka beef burger with bacon and brie and my friend ordered the emdeni beef burger with mushrooms and garlic butter. Not knowing how big the burgers were we decided to split the sweet potato chips. After a while our food came out and the burgers were piled high with toppings. I'm definitely not complaining but it is a burger that might be best eaten with a fork! Once I dug in I realized that the meat was completely overcooked. I kept going in the hopes that I would eventually get a juicy bite or find some kind of flavor but the only flavor came from the bacon and the brie. It was in no way disgusting but I've had some delicious grass-fed beef burgers over the years and for 12 Euro a pop I expected something worthwhile at Jo. The only saving grace of the meal was the sweet potato chips but unfortunately that isn't enough of a reason to walk to Rathmines. I know I complained about a burger from a different place being too rare (90% pink) so I probably sound like I can't be pleased but I would take a juicy rare burger to this any day.

    This time I got the chickpea burger with flat mushrooms, their relish (if youre wonding what it is, its the red jar on the table), lettuce, onions and tomatos. I normally don't like chickpeas, but this was delicious! I liked it a lot more than the sweat potato one, which shocked me.

    The reason they lose a star is because of the onion rings....general thought of the table was that they needed to be cooked more and have more batter...half the time I came out with just an onion slice! The aeolie with it is delicious though....the onion rings were delicious regardless of how much they fell apart, but it was just so messy that I did not want to eat more of them (I didn't eat all day because I knew I was coming back here).

    Amazing burgers, amazing sides and amazing drinks.

    I had a pear burger with goats cheese and it was b-e-a-utiful. The buns are so fresh, they're actually more like baps than buns. Hugh portions, so make sure you're hungry and ready for a big feed, because it's a shame not being able to finish something so good.

    Sweet potato fries! Sweet potato fries! Sweet potato fries! Sweet potato fries!

    Home made rhubarb lemonade served in big jars, so refreshing and just the right amount of tart.

    The menus are quirky old annuals, like The Beano and Dandy, which is a cute nostalgic touch, and there are old kids toys everywhere, what's not to love?

    definitely one of the best burger places in town, Joburger is also the origin and only known habitat of the 'joburger eyes', a specific type of look that passes across one's face the first time they see a joburger in front of them. Half-incredulous, half-lust, all primal was a good way of describing the hiking society committee's face after our order came to us. everyone got different burgers, covering maybe half the menu, and everyone was super happy. I had the tladi, which was awesome. The fries seemed a bit spendy for what we got, but that might just be my american side coming through.

    The place is hella atmospheric, with low lighting and vintage-y furniture, mismatched  cutlery, lemonade served in reused jars and menus in old children's books.

    The beer and wine menu is pretty sick, but a bit spendy for a student on a budget. I've had the big ol' wine bottle of beer (Belgian) and the blueberry apple cider, which was crisp and refreshing (although it damn well better be for 7.25 a bottle :D)

    probably the most fun aspect of joburger is watching people's strategies for eating the massive slabs they order. uncompressed, the burgers stand at maybe 25 cm, depending on what variation you ordered. the first 2 minutes of the meal require some thought- do I remove the buns and eat the burger piece by piece? do I smash the whole thing together and hope the dinky little spike in the middle keeps it all together? do I make little baby burgers out of each bun and then watch it all fall out of my sandwich piece by piece? There is a definite science to eating a joburger, one which hasn't been perfected yet, at least in my circle of friends.

    Overall, a smashing good time, with a good menu and some sweet alcoholic beverages, I can only recommend joburger. They don't have a desert menu, which peeved some members of our party, but I don't think they would have finished a desert had they gotten one.

    personal recommendation: the tladi with emmentaler, fries, and a big aul lemonade to wash it all down.

    I went here, dead tired, stressed out with exams, still unpacked for my trip home for the holidays and ate a burger as big as my head. It was the perfect pick me up to make sure I die from said stress-tired-unpackedness I mentioned earlier. And it was a good head sized burger, I mean really good. However, not as good as their "I would be willing to punch a baby for those sweet potato fires" sweet potato fries. I think I may need to write epic poetry to those just to let them know the depth of my regard for them. And their filter coffee is strong enough to make a tired grad student find the will to live.
    Added bonus, they have a really great selection of veggie burgers which I am going to try out as soon as I get back to Dublin.

    Jo'Burger is fine. I wasn't disappointed with the food, but it's the type of sandwich that you a) pick into little pieces, missing the alchemy of food/sauce/bun or b) smash into an unrecognizable mush so that at least you get all the flavors at once.

    Their onion rings are more like onion straws. Their lemonade is more like lemon san pellegrino juice-soda.

    The overall ambiance is eclectic, with big mirrors, mystery not-quite-a-circuit-board art, and picnic tables/benches to sit on.

    I've been to several of the restaurants in this varied chain (crackbird, etc) and this is so far my least favorite.

    Jo'burger was the start of the burger-mania for me.  The original restaurant in Rathmines was where I discovered their funky restaurant with benches, beano annuals and games.  Not to mention delicious burgers.  

    I love the pimiville - avocado and salsa, or the chaiwelo - mango salsa and rocket.  Yum.  I  have them without the bun so that I get little relish and mayo tubs.  Also, I love the potato chips but I adore the corn on the cobs! Gorgeous.  

    It's trendy and funky, a little pricey, but you'll be absolutely stuffed.  Big thumbs up.

    One thing I'll give this place-their burgers are decent.
    The good burgers are completely over shadowed by how annoying this place is to be in.
    Has anyone ever arrived at a restaurant and thought, 'fantastic, they have communal seating'? Communal tables are one thing but the benches don't work, especially if you're in the middle-it's very hard to get in and out.( I don't know how the hipsters manage in their drain-pipes.)
    I know I sound very old but the music is way too loud(and crap).
    I found the atmosphere in the place is all very try hard. From the dudes sitting next to us in their tweed jackets playing cards and stroking their facial hair over their burgers to the staff that just seemed very uninterested with life in general.

    So my coworkers have a "burger friends" group that go around Dublin and try out all the burger joints. This is by far the best place.

    The menus are in children's books and the burgers are creative, huge, and delicious.

    I got the endemi - flat mushroom and garlic butter on jo' burger relish. The fries are also good. Good German beer too.

    Just back from Jo'Burger and am much fuller and had a great experience here. Sorry to disagree with you James but I though the place was great.

    Service was a little slow and it's a bit like a night club with the techno-techno tunes, but theres are my only two sticking points. The chicken burger I got was huge, well cooked and tasted great with a lovely char-grilled flavour and lots of seasoning.

    I was also very happy to see sweet potatoes or yam fries on the menu, haven't had these since I was in Canada last year. They didn't last long!

    Well situated in Rathmines just down from the village, with a lunch deal for €10 Mondays to Thursdays. I'll be back and looking forward to checking out the Blackrock branch.

    I tried Jo'Burger on the weekend and I am a massive fan! Might have had something to do with the copious litres of Guinness I'd imbibed beforehand, but I sure wolfed that burger down!

    They have a really extensive menu (maybe too extensive? Definitely too extensive for an alcohol-loaded, dreadfully-behaved 'I-just-want-a-cheeseburger' customer - ok ok I wasn't that bad, but you get the idea!)

    You can choose from such delights as peanut chilli sauce, bush peach curry sauce and blue cheese on your meat, chicken, fish or vegie burger. It's a burger lover's paradise, but an indecisive eater's hell. WAY too many options!!! I opted for a spicy chicken with fresh mango salsa and rocket. I'm not a spice wimp, but by gosh was that chicken spicy!! Salsa was great though :-)

    The bush fries are great, albeit a little small for the price (4 euro for a tiny little cup... I want MORE!!) And I must make a mention of the menus too... they are WAY cool... cartoon style!

    Oh, and just one more thing??? Most annoying website in the world. Try navigating that one. Actually don't. Just go there yourself and try a burger.

    Jo's is frequently lauded as the burger paradise in Dublin and they deserve all the praise they get. There's no need to rave about how cool the place looks or how awesome the extensive choose-your-own-style menu is. It's been covered so many times.

    There's one thing that has to be added to previous reviews though. I can't believe no-one has mentioned the fish burgers . When you crave a juicy burger, a fillet of cod  in a bun  is perhaps the last thing that comes to mind, but then you are missing out. The Piri fish burger, with red onion marmelade, rocket and relish, and sweet potatoes with garlic mayo on the side, is to die for. WOW! It's the best burger I've ever had and I urge you to try it. And the chips. Yum! I sometimes go here just for a portion of their delicious potatoes and a pint. If you need another reminder that no diner can ever overthrow Jo's from the top of the burger kingdom, stuff your stomach with this one.

    This funky burger bar is often packed to the rafters with people dying to try their organic delicious burgers.  Seating is cantina style on long tables so don't go if you're looking for privacy. There is a dj in the evenings and it gets pretty loud - if you want something more laidback, go during the day.

    They serve beef, lamb, chicken or veggie (two unusual and interesting types) burgers with a variety of interestingly named toppings - anything from bacon&egg to rocket&chutney, chipotle&avocado.

    The homemade buns are the size of houses and unless your appetite is huge, one side order will probably keep two people happy. The food is great, the atmosphere hip and happening and the wine list surprisingly cheap! So go check it out - just be prepared to queue!

    OK, I'd heard all about the praise for Jo'Burger but when I popped along a few weeks ago, I was a little underwhelmed. On the positive side, the beer was cold, the service was reasonably quick and  the burger was nice. On the negative side, the seating is a little tight but I understand the vibe they're going for and the need to get as many people in to a small space. The chips were ok but the music was my main gripe; it was way way way too loud-- I could barely keep up a conversation with the person across from me, so god help the bigger groups. Music selection wasn't bad but personally, I like to dictate when I damage my ear drums.
    Of course, this could be a sign I am getting old but I hope not.
    Staff are a little too cool for school but maybe I'm not cool enough anymore.
    God, all I wanted was a burger and chips and now I'm questioning my age and my coolness. This is what Jo'Burger did to me.
