Best burger in cologne. They use beef for all meals. You should try three cheese burger. Pomes and chili patatos were actually great.

A friend took us to Die Fette as he said they made the beat burgers in Germany. He was spot on. A very busy and small casual eatery. All 4 of us had different burgers and they were all fantastic. We are told that the beef is all local and prepared on site. They are cooked to individual taste and... More

Translated as big fat cow, this place truly carries the meaning. The burger you get is juicy and fat. So you cant take a bite out in the regular way. You need to use the cutlery. The place i agree is small but it is still worth the while. I loved the different types of burgers with different types of... More

You will never know what a great burger tastes like till you came here. The meat comes from local animals, there is a special buns-recipe and the homemade sauces are just terrific. Here you won't find any bric-a-brac but pure taste. You order at the counter and wait excitedly for your name to be screamed. The fact that is it... More

What can I say what hasn't been told already. This place is magic. Not the decor, which is good but not great...but you're not going there because of the decor or the color of the dishes....but for the Burgers (with a big 'B'). Those are epic. Every positive rating is true, that's all I can say. Small joint and you... More

Die Fette Kuh has a nice selection of different burgers that can be individualized with different ingredients and sizes of patties. Both of our burgers where delicious and well made with fresh ingredients. The fries are seemingly hand cut and while they were good they could have been better: They were on the small side and the lacked some salt.... More

Even though it is a small place and the queue was pretty long, it was still worth waiting. They have fancy burger with various styles and they seem to cook with abandon. The only negative point is, that they oversalted the patties. So bring plenty of time and give them a try.
