Hello Burgers & Beer is a popular gourmet burger restaurant in the Medellín area with good American style burgers that could be custom made. This restaurant used to be named Monsieur Burger but it rebranded in 2019 to Hello Burgers & Beer and has moved twice.
This used to be a chain of gourmet burger restaurants with two locations in El Poblado and Envigado but the Envigado location closed in mid-2019. A Medellin Guru reader notified us that the El Poblado location in Manila had closed and we confirmed this. But the restaurant moved and is now located east of Parque Poblado on Calle 8.
Also, many expats knew about the original 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 in December 2018 to Carrera 43D in the Manila barrio of El Poblado but this location closed in 2020 and moved to east of Parque Poblado.
The unique thing about this burger place was you can chose the bread, the meat, the cheese and toppings. So, the burgers could be custom made.

The Bottom Line – Hello Burgers & Beer is Closed
Hello Burgers & Beer was one of my favorite burger places in Medellín. This restaurant had very good American style burgers that can be 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 Burger, Barbacoa Burger & Beer, 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.
Hello Burgers & Beer was open at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in Colombia. However we confirmed this burger restaurant was closed in December 2020 based on a reader comment. And a nearby restaurant said it had closed several months ago.
