The food consumption habits in Pakistan have radically changed and fast food has become more and more popular and integrated into today’ lifestyle.

But the plethora of various burger joints in Karachi city now poses a unique problem: which one should you try? The stereotypical foodie from Karachi usually running on a budget does not want to spend a thousand rupees on a full combo meal, only to find that the food isn’t up to the mark. has come up with a list of the top 5 burger joints so if you want to enjoy a nice burger at home, you can use the following list as a guide:

1. Obeez Burgers

Obeez Burgers initially started as an exclusive delivery joint. What sets Obeez apart from other burger places is the sheer size of their burgers. The Mother of All Cheese Burger is easily the biggest burger in Karachi, with a 500gm patty (!). Obeez redefines the term “value for money”, with the average meal costing less than 500.

2. Vintage Bakeshop and Café 

Despite its short lifespan, Vintage has quickly risen to the top of the food industry. It is one of the most popular places in Karachi, offering a fine selection of sandwiches, burgers and steaks. Despite their gigantic size, the burgers from Vintage are brimming with taste. The Prime time marries the taste of fresh beef with a combination of onion rings and pepperoni, culminating in an explosion of tastes in your mouth.

3. Pantry

The only reason why this place is on the list is because of its Gouda Burger. From soups, salads to an exhaustive breakfast menu, there’s plenty to choose from Pantry’s menu. However, the Gouda Burger from Pantry is truly a class apart. While it may not be as huge, the perfect combination of Gouda, tomatoes, pickled onion and rocket makes for an excellent burger. The California Burger is another fantastic choice!

4. Grub

Grub has a fine selection of burgers and pizzas. The feather in the hat is the Grub Grand, a double patty beef burger that takes your taste buds on a joyful experience. Size-wise, the Grand is easily one of the biggest in the city. The bun to patty ratio is excellent, and their in-house sauce just amplifies the taste. The Grand may not be everyone’s cup of tea due to its size, but if you hold a true love for burgers in your heart, you have to try it once!

5. Gourmet Burger Company 

The Gourmet Burger Company, better known as GBC, is one of the most reliable places in Karachi. The place offers an exhaustive list of different burgers, pastas and starters. also offers an exclusive family deal with a 40% discount, with four burgers, a pasta and chicken wings.
