Monsieur Burger is a popular chain of two gourmet burger restaurants in the Medellín area with good American style burgers that are custom made.

The Monsieur Burger chain has two locations in El Poblado and Envigado. And many expats know about the old El Poblado location of Monsieur Burger, which was located on Calle 8A about two blocks from Parque Poblado.

This location in El Poblado was popular. However, this location on Calle 8A closed. And it moved about a week ago to a new location on Carrera 43D.

The unique thing about this burger place is you chose the bread, the meat, the cheese and toppings. So, the burgers are custom made.

The Burgers at Monsieur Burger

This is a gourmet burger restaurant that only has burgers on the menu. So, don’t go expecting to find anything else on the menu. But they do have chicken and falafel burgers available.

At Monsieur Burger, most of the burgers are made to order at customer request and you build the burger by phase.

  • Phase 1 – decide on bread – traditional, integral or rustic – and single beef (125 grams), double beef (250 grams), chicken, or chickpea falafel cooked to order. Also includes lettuce, onions and tomatoes. (10,000 pesos and add 4,000 pesos for double meat).
  • Phase 2 – decide on sauces: spicy Monsieur, Monsieur, Dijon, fine herbs or blue cheese (2,000 pesos for two sauces)
  • Phase 3 – decide on additions: cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, Gruyere cheese, bacon, jalapenos, sweet pickles or onions cooked in red wine and balsamic (2,000 pesos each)
  • Phase 4 – decide on accompaniments – French fries or salad (4,500 pesos each).

Also, they have a combo available, which is a burger with fries and drink for 16,900 pesos.

How to Get to Monsieur Burger

Monsieur Burger used to have a restaurant located a couple of blocks from Parque Poblado in El Poblado. But this location moved to Carrera 43D # 10-7 about a week ago. So, if you are familiar with Monsieur Burger’s first location on Calle 8A in El Poblado, this location is closed and has moved.

The Bottom Line – Monsieur Burger

Monsieur Burger is one of my favorite burger places in Medellín. This chain has very good American style burgers that are custom made with ingredients you select, which I like.

There is a lot of competition for gourmet burger places in Medellín. Several other burger places in Medellín like Chef BurgerBarbacoa Burger & BeerClassic Diner, Grill Station Burger and Jack & Roll also have good gourmet style burgers.

Furthermore, all these gourmet style burger restaurants tend to have much better burgers than you will find at the fast food places like Burger King or McDonalds.

The only downside of Monsieur Burger is that both locations are relatively small. So, they can get busy at night on Fridays and on the weekends. So, it may take some time to wait for a table and service may be slower than on less busy days.
