Halmstad’s best burger shack

Is there anything as good as a simple burger? Here we’ve rounded up some of our favorite places with crusty buns, top-quality meat and chili sauces that’ll give you a real kick in your mouth.

Restaurants and pubs in Halmstad where the burger is the rock star and you get to go to a memorable concert you’ll never ever forget.

The Bull’s Pub

The Bull’s Pub (swe) External link, opens in new window. is an international pub and steakhouse with a jovial atmosphere, located in the old fire station on Lilla torg, where the outdoor cafés form a cluster and the pulse of the summer continues into late into the night. Everyone feels comfortable here, either in the open-air seating area or in the cozy atmosphere inside. Their menus are constantly being re-worked – so the selection changes frequently. However you will always find their delicious beef burgers on the menu, and that will never change. With their own special hamburger dressing and buns from Skånskan, Bull’s Cheeseburger is a classic favorite of many. Locals know why. Try it out yourself and you’ll see.
