If you love burgers – and you find yourself in beautiful Budapest – you’re going to want to make your way to Rock Burger Bar. Founder Zsigmond Szivos had a love for both rock music and burgers so he combined them into an outstanding spot that locals love. Burgers here are made with only the highest quality Hungarian beef and topped with homemade sauces – and as for the “rock” part of the experience, all the burgers are named after famous rock stars. For example, you can order the “Red Hot Chili Peppers,” that comes with house-made hot sauce and jalapenos for a spicy kick. Or, opt for the signature burger: the “Deep Purple“ with homemade onion jam and brie cheese. Burgers always come with excellent thick-cut French fries and delicious cabbage salad.

Svivos started off selling burgers at Lake Balaton three years ago and soon they became so popular that he opened another location in downtown Budapest and also at Lake Lupa. And all you need to do is taste what’s on offer to see why. Don’t fancy a beef burger? That’s OK, because you also have the option of duck, chicken, and vegetarian burgers with duck being a popular choice for locals. And if you have room at the end of your meal, dessert is not to be missed. What is it, you ask? A dessert burger, of course! This sweet treat is made with fresh fruits, Oreo cookies and Nutella and well wroth saving a bit of room for. Come for the amazing burgers, stay for the welcoming atmosphere, solid playlist of rock songs, and great beer.
