DIY Burgers & Cheese Boom: Here’s Where You Can Get The Best Burgers In Chennai
The 90’s Café
The theme of the café is everything from the 90’s, which is what their walls are adorned with and the kind of music they play. Their burgers might not be 90’s themed, but they’re definitely interestingly named and depending on whether you’re a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian, there’s definitely something for everyone. Check out the Potter’s Cottage which has grilled paneer topped with bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, mayo, mustard, and cheese! Talk about deliciousness in a plate.
This Anna Nagar restaurant has a very expensive menu, featuring different kinds of food and a variety that you probably couldn’t find anywhere else. And we’re talking about breakfast options, hot dogs, and of course burgers. Their burgers are mostly non-vegetarian (they even have seafood burgers!), but they’ve got a vegetarian burger and an Egg Burger for just INR 100, so what are you waiting for?
Chennai folks know the history of BurgerMan and after shutting shop a few years ago, the burger joint is back, with a quirky themed restaurant in Besant Nagar. Their burgers are still fantastic and well thought out and they have great accompaniments and the option to double your burger if you’re in the mood. As you can imagine, they’ve got a pretty solid non-vegetarian selection of burgers, but their vegetarian section is just as robust. Try the Cheese Boom, it’s an explosion of cheese with every single bite and if you’re feeling adventurous, give the Bourbon Cottage Cheeseburger a try.
Chili’s American Grill & Bar
Any good American restaurant would have burgers, it’s kind of a staple. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this American chain has some really interesting burgers. The cuisine is Tex-Mex and they have different kinds of burgers, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Chili’s even has craft burgers that are served with housemade garlic dill pickles, home fries, and bottomless Coke! While most of the burgers might be non-vegetarian, you can choose to have a South Western vegetarian patty instead of a meat patty. The burger would still be absolutely amazing and we can guarantee that much.

The whole process makes you feel like you’re being able to make the burger you want! And they’ve got vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.
