Burgers and french fries are really good. The menu/sets are more expensive than burger king or macdonald's.

This is maybe the kind of problem you get when you grow to big. This is now a "large" chain of restaurants in Switzerland. Cutting down costs drives to less quality food sadly. There are better burgers for the buck in Lausanne, would not recommend.

We both love to search for the best burger in every town we visited... So when in Lausanne, we tried Holy Cow.... We LOVE the juicy burger ... the perfect bun and the sauce! We wanted to come back for more but we had to travel to Geneva.... So far - personally : definitely Best Burger place

We stopped here for lunch and had "gourmet" burgers. The food was good but on the pricey side for a burger served in a basket lined with paper. The burgers are thick with lots of homestyle fries. If you enjoy hamburgers this is worth a stop.

Very overpriced for a burger even for switzerland. Burger was nice but again it was just meat and bread. Nothing special. Was looking forward to it as it was recommended by locals, but ended up leaving disapointed. Otherwise the staff was very nice and friendly and the deco is quite cool.

I have been several times at Holy Cow in Lausanne (the main restaurant) and had always good experiences. Therefore, with the same confidence I went to this other location in the city. I have to say that I was expecting the same quality and taste, but I was very disappointed with the burger I got served ! I don't understand... More

The veggie burgers are to die for! The service is very friendly, the burgers are delicious and the fries too! All their drinks are local. We live this place!

We went here because we were searching for some decent burgers in Lausanne and we found them. The burgers were tasty and the fries were nice too. The staff was relaxed and really funny, we appreciated that. The food pricing was mid -range for swiss food.

Great and delicious burgers with interesting flavors. I eat here regularly, the burgers are delicious with good quality ingredients, this is high-end fast food. It is very popular, and always busy. Beats the other burger competitors nearby absolutely hands down. Their burgers are not just boring buns with salad and a meat patty, they have home made sauces, goats cheese,... More

It is a perfect place to eat a nice burger with amazing potatoes and a drink for around 20 CHF. The choise of burgers is wide and now you can also have salad. I go there since a long time and I keep going back. If you chose the artisanal syrup you cam refill your glass as much as you... More
