This is not a restaurant for a romantic dinner lasting several hours, but it is the place to be if you are looking for a place to eat before maybe a concert, football match or a night on the town. The burgers are greasy and delicious, and you are seated at long tables alongside strangers. On a busy night it... More

I went to Die Fette Kuh and was impressed that were able to cater for a gluten free vegan. Not many places can claim that. I really enjoyed the food from there.

We live close by and visited this place so many times in the past years but Die Fette Kuh has never disappointed us. For us by far the best burger in Cologne. Fresh and high quality ingredients, home made sauces (the best BBQ!!), handcut fries and patties on point. Dry aged beef for a little extra price. The place is... More

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
