Updated 23 Aug 2021
Good burgers can be found on menus all around Uppsala, from street kiosks to gourmet restaurants, but a really great burger is hard to find. The hamburger jungle can be hard to navigate for both locals and visitors but whether you're in the mood for cheap and cheerful fast food or a posher burger, Thatsup is here to guide you to Uppsala's best hamburgers.
Tugg BurgersDragarbrunnsgatan 50, Centrum
Quality and authentic ingredients take centre stage at Tugg. The meat they use comes from selected farms and is freshly ground on site every day and the hamburger menu has something for all tastes. They also serve decadent milkshakes made from Lejonet & Björnan ice cream, along with delicious sides including coleslaw and sweet-potato fries.
Phil's BurgerVaksalagatan 30 A (Kvarnen), Centrum/Fålhagen
Popular burgers and sport
After establishing themselves at several locations in Stockholm, Phil's Burger opened up their Uppsala branch in spring 2016. They serve homemade burgers with their own special burger buns and coleslaw. Sports fan? They show all the big matches on big screens.
Kitchen & TableDragarbrunnsgatan 23, Centrum
Classic burgers at fusion restaurant
Despite their multicultural, Manhattan-inspired menu, Kitchen & Table serves up a surprisingly classic hamburger. Cheddar cheese and bacon make the burger extra satisfying and give it a luxurious boost without detracting too much from the main event.
Picnic Bar & RestaurantStationsgatan 4, Centrum/Fålhagen
Hamburgers that pack a punch
Radisson Blu Hotel's own restaurant is a fresh, elegant addition to the Uppsala restaurant scene. The menu consists of classic dishes with a sophisticated edge, and their hamburgers are no exception. Gruyere cheese and roasted garlic dressing make them unforgettable.
Trädgården SteakhouseHeidenstamsgatan 69, Centrum
Trädgården is often overlooked as it's on the outskirts of town, but it's definitely worth a visit. You'll find three hearty hamburgers on the menu - American Classic, Burger Blue and South Burger - and all three are worth venturing out of the city centre for.
American Steakhouse BurgersVaksala Fridhem 40, Centrum
From food truck to restaurant
American Steakhouse Burgers began as a food truck outside town serving high quality burgers. They've now moved into their own premises on Bolandsgatan, but still make burgers with the same passion and top-notch ingredients as before.
Terrassen Kök & BarDrottninggatan 1A, Centrum
Terrassen isn't often mentioned in connection with hamburgers, but that's a major oversight. Tucked away on the menu among the salmon and beef dishes, you'll find a classic cheese and bacon burger which you'll be very glad you ordered. They also have a halloumi burger if you'd rather go green.
