7 - Fume - Pier 7, Dubai Marina While you’ll love the atmosphere of this spot, their burgers are an awesome match, too.

For an extra treat, try the chocolate brownie dessert—sinful, but totally worth the few extra minutes in the gym. How much? This cheeseburger and fries will set you back AED 89.
6 - Claw BBQ Crabshack & Grill - Souk Al Bahar, Downtown Dubai If you’re looking for a classic American hamburger, come here. They use excellent quality beef, cooked how you like it, with lettuce, tomato and onion served on a lightly toasted bun. We got ours with extra American cheese, it can get messy so maybe bring a bib for this one. How much? The Classic Hamburger served with fries costs AED75.
5 - The Meat Co - Souk Madinat Jumeirah It may cost a few more dirhams than the other burgers on our list but we can guarantee you won’t be disappointed. You can’t go wrong with any of their gourmet burger options which are all 100% pure beef, seasoned, basted and flame-grilled. If you can’t decide which to choose, let us do the hard work for you: Go for the Wagyu Burger, our particular favourite. How much: Wagyu Burger with fries and onion rings: AED 120.
4 - Elevation Burger - SZR, Trade Centre Area Their soft, fresh buns and mouthwatering, juicy burgers are proof that Elevation Burger was going to make our list. Any fast food haters out there, you need to try one of these before you pass judgment. We love the Fiery Burger, which is made up of organic beef, two slices of American cheese, jalapeños and house sauce. How much? This burger costs AED 39, fries are separate but we still think it’s a pretty decent value.
3 - Belgian Beer Cafe - Souk Madinat Jumeirah The Belgian-style Cheeseburger here is definitely one of our favourites. It’s basically just beef and truffle mayonnaise - amazingly simple but the taste packs some serious punch. Choose any side to go with your burger, although we totally recommend the onion rings. How much? The Belgian-style Cheeseburger costs AED 85.
2 - Salt at Kite Beach, Umm Suqeim We came for the cool food truck setup but we stayed for the ridiculously good burgers. Choose one of their double wagyu burgers if you’re looking for an extra big feed. This is made up of wagyu beef, melted cheese and pickle slices, all served up on a buttered bun. YUM. How much? The Double Salt Burger costs AED 45.
1 - Jones the Grocer - SZR, Al Safa You’ll have to search long and hard for someone who has a bad thing to say about the Jones Wagyu Burger. Freshly minced and marinated wagyu, beef bacon, mixed leaf salad and cheese with Jones Bois Boudran sauce in a brioche bun. Add the caramelised onions and truffle mayonnaise and you’ll have yourself Dubai’s best burger. How much? Served with fries, the Jones Wagyu Burger will set you back AED 79.
