Finally got to try The Beef, and I wasn't impressed. 128517 I had high expectations for this burger because of the numerous praises from my colleagues + the high ratings here on |ooloo.

For 410 php, I could've spent that amount on 2 classic burgers from Army Navy with a drink and freedom fries. 128514

There's nothing special about the patty, except for the bun which I liked coz it's soft but that's basically it. The fries that came with it was also just okay, nothing spectacular. 128533

Will I try it again?

I think it'll be the first and the last. 128517

Another stall we tried at the Great |looloo Eatup last night was The Beef. I guess I'm one of the few who finds The Beef just ok. The beefiness factor was 101% but I found it too bland to my liking. I could have added it with a little more salt or (better) cheese although I was surprised at how super tender and juicy the beef patty was.

The bun was delightfully soft and pillowy to the bite.

When I looked at the price, I just went 128561128561128561

Hamburger with fries cost ₱370 while cheeseburger with fries cost ₱395. You can also order the burgers a la carte.

Nah, as a cheapskate I could have spent that amount on other great tasting burgers that do not cost as much as The Beef's burgers. 128513

I'm sorry that I do not know what is this burger called or how much it cost but one thing I know for sure is that it's the BEST burger I ever tasted so far! So yummmyyy!! Iyong moment na napapasabi ka ng "ang sarap" bawat kagat! I'm not kidding!

You were right about this Roegan T 128522

I love how flavorful the pattie and soft the bun is!

Found another reason why to go back at HITW!

Thanks for the treat |Looloo! 128525128523

We finally meet! Kayo pala! Now I know and Im not a believer.

I usually skip this as I can easily make a delicious burger at home. But, Hal-looloo-ween happened and I just had to finally try it.

Seriously delicious beef burger!!! it was so juicy. Loved how it used just salt and pepper to season the burger. Got mine with cheese on it. Burger was juicy.Yum, yum.

Will I try again? Yes!!!

Brioche buns, perfectly seasoned patty, and fresh veggies. The fries are excellent in its own right. Comes with ketchup and sour cream but there are other condiments avaible at the counter.

I haven’t had this in a while and the first bite is as memorable as the first one. Still the best burger in town for me.

Terrible photo but I just wanted to inhale my burger. Still the best one for me. Even though it's been several months since I last tried it, the taste still hasn't changed one bit!

Juicy and super flavorful (aka salty lol) patty and super soft buns. The fries are a bit crispier now than before, can still be improved IMO but I'm here for the burger so I'm not complaining about that.

The Beef will always be the reason for me to head to HITW!

128204128525 Cheeseburger with Fries @395PhP
Their fries are really good, you will be served with ketchup and sour cream.
We marveled as we saw the patties being cooked, the patty is thick and i really like it.

I have been wanting to try this place out for the longest time however I found their burgers a little too expensive. So last week at the #HalloolooweenParty , I decided to finally try them out! And it was a good decision indeed! The patty was juicy and well-seasoned! Yum! Writing this review, I'm suddenly craving for one bigla! 128055128069

It is THE BEEF!

Yup! It's the simplest burger I have ever eaten in my life and it is one of the best, if not THE best.
I've only eaten this once but it got me. The BEEF got me.
It is so rare for me to find a burger that is actually legit. When I say legit, it means that the patty is BEEF and nothing else.
At first bite, I thought 'okay.. it's a burger.'. And then i forgot about it for about 3 mins because I was tasting something from Bad Bird and then I went back and finished the burger.

Have you ever eaten something that gets tastier and better after every bite? That's how I would describe my experience. At the end, while I was trying to finish my bottle of beer, I just realized how good it was. It's so simple but eating it is one heck of an experience.

Best Burger!!! 💯 It's only my second time eating this but I swear, I still get so excited. 128518 I think reviews available online and the rating is already enough for you to know how good THE BEEF is and if it's worth the "medyong splurge" because medyo mahal siya. 128517

Basta, MASARAP SIYA. Soft tasty bun + Well seasoned beef patty. Simple and no arte! 128077🏼

Four items in the menu. Well actually two, burger and fries. If you fancy cheese you can have that for additional Php 30 plus 6% tax. Hole in the Wall charges you tax even if it is just a stall, without the real service of a dine in.

For Php 312 I just got the burger itself to test its real legitimacy. I also did not add any other dips that could alter what the real deal is. Good news, it is real beef! The downside was it was normal, nothing worth raving about. In fact, its patty was rather bland with some spikes of salty taste here and there. It was like they sprinkled salt on top of it prior to serving. I also find the burger too thin, which makes it more overpriced than it already is.

The Beef however has warm staff. And they do share some humor with their condiment station that states, “Leave the squeeze bottles here or we’ll call the cops”. Yes I love the discipline that echos to some of our lazy diners.

Have read rave reviews about this place so when we had the chance to pasyal at century city mall, suggested we check out hole in the wall. I know that their signature is simplicity (without all the 'bullcrap' - this is what's on their paper packaging) but man, I cannot understand the premium pricing. 395 for fries and a cheeseburger? Tapos yung cheeseburger and laman a slice of cheese, a slice of tomato, lettuce and onion. Simple nga but these ingredients do not amount to 325 which is the price for the burger. There's no explanation too what kind of beef it is etc so you would understand the pricing.
Taste-wise, it was ok. Reminded me of Malcolm's back in the day pero talaga, over priced for me. I can't help but compare it to burger geek, sorry. Sa BG, yung 385 mo you can get a b-Mac which has a double patty na. Fries are only 65.
Is it because of the location? They're not even paying for a full resto space since they are in a (glorified) food court.
Apologies talaga to those who love this place pero for me, 'almost' a rip-off 128542

Not much to say except, they still serve the best burgers in Manila for me. 1108811088110881108811088

And the service? Can't be beat! It doesn't matter how big HITW is or how far my table is - I can literally pick the corner most table and for some reason there's always a waitstaff eagerly refilling my water.

Their 127839 serving size got a little smaller but hey, less carbs for me???

Congratulating myself again because I finally got to try THE BEEF!!! 127881 So happy that after xx years, Ony and I were able to have dinner here. YAYY!!!! 128513

Hello, THE BEEF! Nice to finally meet you!!! 128521

Ever since they opened, a lot of people have been saying that this is the best burger in town. We've tried Burgers and Brewskies, Sweet Ecstasy, Lazy Bastard, 8 cuts, and Burger Geek and we all liked and enjoyed their burgers. Wendy's, Burger King, Army Navy, Chili's, and Friday's offer pretty good burgers, as well. We really are not picky when it comes to burgers. Just as long as they're yummy, we're good and happy.

We ordered the Cheeseburger with Fries combo. A bit pricey for 395 pesos + service charge. 127828127839

After around 10 minutes, our burgers are finally ready for pick up. Served neatly and nicely with fries, pickles, ketchup and white sauce (mayo?) on the side. They have a condiments area where you can either get mustard, ketchup or mayo. Didn't bothered getting anymore since the burger looked good and tasty on its own. Plus we already have ketchup and the white sauce.

After taking photos, I let Ony taste it first. Seeing his face 1285639786️, I got excited to try it too. One bite and wow, the burger was indeed good.

What makes The Beef different is it's "simplicity". It's not too complicated, just straight forward real good burger! It's either you want it with cheese or not. That simple! No other add ons or anything else.

It was yummy but I can't say of it's the best but it's one of the "better tasting" burgers. The bread was soft and tastes really good. The patty was well seasoned, it was meaty and juicy. The cheese was just enough but would be so much better if there were more (but I guess it's up to you if you want more cheese or not). I want my burger super cheesy so I might ask for extra cheese next time. 128155

Overall, it's worth the try and the calories. 128077🏼

The burger is good but not really in a "wow" level that will leave you wanting for more. I like that the cooking only takes about 5mins and that the burger itself is not oily. All in all, it was okay but a little too pricey for the taste. I think I'm the only one who prefers Burger King's 4cheese whopper over this. 128586

I always ignore this place in favor of others since: 1. 300 is kinda expensive for a burger here at PH. 2. I always had my weekend burger at salcedo market. 3. Other stalls here had more stomach filling varieties.

So when i was in a hurry for the suicide squad movie. Barely 30mins to order, i gave this one a chance. The order just took like 7 mins and they had a different take on burger. What seems like an ordinary burger was actually a perfect seasoned pattie except on some parts where it was abit salty. Maybe extra saltiness were added when it was being cooked but nonetheless it was good. 128522
