There are thousands of reasons to fall in love with Bangalore. One of them is the amazing food scene. The city is a meat lover's paradise too, with everything from steaks to a wide variety of kebabs on offer at virtually every corner. Speaking of meat, how can we not mention burgers? Nearly every steakhouse and pub has their own version of the burger—most of them big, juicy and tall. Beef, pork, lamb, chicken, fish or even vegetarian—burgers are pretty much a Bangalore staple and you've got to get yourself a bite... or a few!
Let's show you the way to some of the best places in town where you can grab a burger or enjoy a steak.
Connie's Restaurant & Steakhouse
When: 11am to 11pm
Lowdown: Connie's has been dishing out some amazing steaks and burgers, no matter what the time of day. Got morning munchies? How about trying their breakfast beef burger? They also have a bar, which is always handy when you need to wash down your burger with beer.
Portland Steakhouse & Cafe
When: 11:30am to 11pm
Where: MG Road

When: Noon to 3:30pm, 7pm to 10:45pm

Smoked Out Barbecue
When: Noon to 3pm, 7pm to 11pm
Lowdown: A favourite among Koramangala folks is Smoked Out Barbecue. Their open dining area, with grills at the back, makes it a very rustic yet cosy set up. Burgers, steaks and everything you wanted on a chilly night in Bangalore.
When: 11am to 11pm
Where: Vasanth Nagar
Lowdown: If you grew up in Bangalore or have spent a significant number of years in the city, you couldn't have missed eating at Millers 46. This iconic steakhouse dishes out mean burgers too. We're fans of their 46ers half pounder fillet burger.
The Grill House
When: Noon to 11pm
Lowdown: They claim to be akin to heaven for meat lovers and they aren't off the mark. Their burgers come with an international touch—take your pick from varieties such as Italian, Brazilian, Thai, Indian, Mexican and, of course, All American.
When: 11am to 11:30pm
Where: Infantry Road
Lowdown: If you're in Commercial Street, drop by Peppa Zzing and you will forget about shopping. A tiny, unassuming place, it serves the juiciest and meatiest burgers. They come with good old-fashioned potato chips.
When: 10:20am to 10:30pm
Lowdown: You can't do a "best burgers in town" list and not have Cafe Thulp on it. These guys reintroduced good burgers to Koramangala. Smoked pulled pork, bacon wrapped Philly steak, Vietnamese banh mi pork... these are just a few of our favourite things you'll find between the soft buns they serve.
