My love for burgers is inevitable. Where there's a good burger, I am there... Where there's a new place that serves burgers am the first to try... I can safely say that Brgr Co. takes you on a unique Burger experience...

As you enter Brgr Co. located in Sodeco, Achrafieh, you're automatically welcomed with a design that's very attractive. If you're slightly hungry or not at all... those hunger tweets in your stomach will start screaming for those burgers before you sit down - the overwhelming delicious smell of freshly cooked burgers from the open kitchen is truly something - especially for a burger lover like myself. The overall place has this effect that it's not brand new. I like it. It gives it that feeling of authenticity along with years of experience... My first burger was a discovery.

Clean and clear, meat and bun, no ketchup, no mayonnaise no additives, no sauce, no additional garnishes like the average burgers and yet it was more than mouthwatering. So juicy, so tasty so aromatic with a deep fresh and pure meat sensation. Try it with their shakes. It's something else. Some people say that its too oily and fatty and so they don't like, but that's what makes it so special in my opinion. Maybe not every week but you must try it. One downside, I think is that the place does not serve anything else but burgers. What if someone accompanying a friend or a lover to their favorite restaurant but doesn't eat meat or burgers for that matter. What would they do? I think they should reconsider and maybe add another choice to the menu. 

I like the place. I think the aim of Burger Co. is to be the best burger joint in town. It could be. The food is good, the atmosphere is nice and the staff is friendly and welcoming...
But I am interested in knowing is why is it that expensive? The meat is juicier, thicker, heavier and better than most burgers I have tried but would that justify a bill of 50,000LBP per person? The fries are not that special, their buns are not that different, they serve Pepsi like their main competitor, they are non smoking like their main competitor - so why do you think they are more expensive?
In all cases, Brgr Co. is my stop every six months: Reasons include price as well as the fact that your cholesterol level is in jeopardy.
If you didn't try it yet, do so the the soonest, it's a unique experience that cannot be compared in any way to other burger places around town.
