5 of the Best Burgers in Paris

If you’re looking for the best burgers in Paris and want to know the places to get them in the city of light then read on! Our guide has the low-down on the most amazing smash, chicken and vegan burgers in the city.

We love burgers and Paris has started to embrace them more and more. Go back 7 years and you would have seen the start of the burger & street food revolution in the city. New burger joints started popping up launched by Parisians who had lived abroad and saw a gap in the market. Fast-forward to today and the gourmet, quality burger market is bursting with incredible restaurants. So read on to discover Paris Eater’s favourite burger restaurants in the city.

Our Favourite Burgers in Paris France

Our list contains a mix of the best burgers in Paris. We’ve chosen a range of burger styles – smash, thick-patty, fried chicken and vegan & vegetarian friendly. There’s plenty of new spots popping up in Paris so this guide will be updated regularly.


Dumbo is without a doubt the most famous smash burger joint in the city and my personal favourite. Incredibly popular on social media for good reason, Dumbo pump out incredible yet simple smash burgers. Currently operating two spots with one in Pigalle and the second in the 10th arrondissement close to the Chateau d’Eau metro station. The menu is ultra simple – cheeseburger, vegetarian burger or fries (and 3 drinks). They offer majority take out but there is counter space if you want to eat in but note that it’s hard to get a seat during peak times.

Their burgers are the definition of the ‘whole is more than the sum of it’s parts’. Yes, it’s a real smash burger – their patties are smashed so this you see the epic, crispy edges barely holding together. For me, it’s textually perfect, the two dry-aged beef patties are mega crispy contrasting so nicely with the melty cheese, house sauce and hits of acidity from chopped onions and pickles. Their fries are great too although my only criticism would be their dipping sauce – mayo heavily laced with Dijon mustard. For the vegetarians, they also do a vegetarian burger.

Another great smash burger restaurant in Paris, Junk is definitely one to try out. Compared to Dumbo they have a lot more customisation and their menu is a lot bigger. They currently have one take-out restaurant in Paris although they do have a second delivery only kitchen as well. Like Dumbo, they do a great job at delivering flavour and texture without overdoing toppings and using genuinely good ingredients.

On the menu are the standard cheese smash burgers in different formats – from S to XXL. These sizes don’t refer to the diameter of the patties, it’s the amount of patties you get. The S version has 1 smashed patty whereas the XXL has an incredible 5 patties. I’d say anything over the L is overkill but if you’re hungry….! Aside from the standard cheese burgers, Junk also offer as seasonal burger (truffled smash at the time of writing) and a vegetarian burger. They also offer some lovely breaded fried chicken popcorn bites and their house fries are great.

One of the creators of the Parisian gourmet burger movement, PNY is still going strong today. I really like their burgers and they’re a very good option if you’re in the mood for thicker, juicer patties cooked medium-rare. Currently offering franchises, the chain has expanded all over France and has an incredible 8 locations in Paris. Their restaurants each have a fun, interesting theme and are designed very well. Other than the aesthetic, the only difference between locations is that each restaurant has their own ‘special’ burger.

Their menu is relatively simple with 8 different burgers on offer. Their buns are all the same – it’s just the toppings and protein that changes. I do like that they make good use of plenty of smoked bacon in their burgers and their house sauces are awesome. Their fried chicken burger is awesome and is glazed in hot sauce – just like in Nashville. Finally for vegetarians there are two options! There’s either a vegetarian patty or a breaded and fried portobello mushroom version.

Mangez et Cassez Vous

Mangez et Cassez Vous are an awesome chain of no frills, super cheap burgers. If you’re on a budget but still want a decent burger then this is the place for you. The name, meaning eat and leave in English does reflect the very quick service that you get. All their burgers are priced at at incredible €3.60 but unfortunately does seem to be rising frequently in-line with inflation. They currently have 4 restaurants in the city and note that some don’t have much or any seating at all.

On the burger side there’s around 6 options and are generally all very ‘French’ with different cheeses and sauces (French interpretations of different cuisines’ sauces). The toppings are generous, well balanced and all work well together. There’s no high end brioche bun here and it’s not a smash burger. Bread wise, it’s a simple white milk bun and the patty is a decent thickness.

  • Expect to queue briefly during peak hours

100% vegetarian and vegan burgers, Naked, located in the capital’s 6th arrondissement, offer some great smash burgers with a difference. A stone’s throw from the very nice Saint Germain des Prés area, the pink themed restaurant offer some very instangrammable but tasty burgers.

The menu at first glance appears like a regular, modern smash burger joint. There’s bacon cheese burgers and chicken nuggets all vegan. The patties are decent and have a very meaty texture to them. The ‘chicken nuggets’ are surprisingly good and honestly very believable. I’d definitely recommend trying their crispy sweet potato fries as well – they’re delicious.
