Fatty Dabs

The guys at Fatty Dabs Burger Shack, Amman’s premier American-style gourmet burger house, are considered by many as the finest practitioners of their meaty craft in the country. The menu consists of burgers, steaks, and more burgers, juicy, grilled, and with a range of exquisite toppings. Excellent meat quality and good value for money, meals come with fries, and they also serve salads, soft drinks and milkshakes.

Home to internationally respected meat specialists, Brisket barbecue restaurant should be at the top of any self-respecting burger-lover’s agenda. The restaurant, which wouldn’t look out of place in Texas, boasts an impressive range of meat dishes, from chicken wings, to ribs, to brisket itself (naturally). Succulent and cooked to perfection, after dining at Brisket you will forever salivate at the memory of their triumphant burgers. Served with truly excellent fries, words can’t do justice to the satisfaction derived from this gastronomic extravaganza.

2. Yaghnam Burger and Snack

Yaghnam Burger and Snack

A popular, home grown fast food joint, Yaghnam Burgers and Snacks offers customers the full range of burger-based meal deals. Located in the Jabal al-Weibdeh district, the menu contains all the usual suspects, from the classic beef burger to hot dogs, as well as some more imaginative options (such as their range of Mexican food), all served with fries and soft drinks.

3. Firefly Burger

Firefly Burger

Fun, inviting, and centrally located (Rainbow Street), Firefly Burger is a hit with burger-lovers young and old. The redbrick interior makes for a cosy setting in which to gorge yourself on Firefly’s greasy concoctions, although it’s often packed out and consequently a little rowdy. They offer a broad, often imaginative menu, the highlights of which are the Kamikaze Burger (two 150 gram beef burgers with chilli sauce) and the 220 gram Angus Burger. The fries are also reliably delicious, and the special ‘Firefly sauce’ adds an extra dimension of flavour that you won’t find elsewhere.

4. Overdoze Burgers

Overdoze Burgers

It’s hard to put your finger on just what makes the burgers at Overdoze so uniquely addictive. The succulence, the tenderness, the sauce, and the toppings all combine magically to make their meaty sandwiches irresistible to the human tongue. To add to the quirkiness of their colourful décor are a series of serious meat-eating challenges, the most daring of which requires the volunteer to devour a 2 kilogram beef burger in 45 minutes. The reward? A spot on their portraits of legends photo wall and 50 Jordanian Dollars in cash. Not for the faint-hearted.
