Close to the main train station and metro, Holy Cow! does a nice selection of burgers for relatively cheap. A very nice burger with fries and a beer is about 25 CHF. Would easily recommend for anyone about the city center.

I visited the Lausanne Holy Cow in April 20017. The place is next to the Bel Air square, right in the city center! The place is clean and nice and with a great variety of burgers to offer! I had the Mexican burger with fries! It was the best I ever had in my life and believe me, I had... More

Great selection of gourmet burgers. Massive portions - you can have chips or salad (with or without the burger bun) as an accompaniment. Good prices, particularly for Lausanne. My friends and I came here time and time again when we lived in Lausanne. Always busy. Highly recommend the blue cheese burger!

Holycow has grown to be one of the most known burger places in Lausanne and in Vaud. For a very good price, you can get a huge burger, lots of fries and a drink. I've eaten many time here and I don't have any favorite burger, so I won't recommend any, but all of them are very good and tasty.... More

If looking for a good burger and fries in Lausanne, stop in to one of the Holy Cow locations. I've been to two locations and prefer the quiet off the beaten path feel of the Cheneau De Borg location. The burgers are good, but the fries are excellent. Top the meal off with a beer and you are set for... More

This place is tiny with very limited seating. However, the food is fab! Lovely thick burgers which were delicious. Reasonably priced

Burgers and french fries are really good. The menu/sets are more expensive than burger king or macdonald's.

This is maybe the kind of problem you get when you grow to big. This is now a "large" chain of restaurants in Switzerland. Cutting down costs drives to less quality food sadly. There are better burgers for the buck in Lausanne, would not recommend.

We both love to search for the best burger in every town we visited... So when in Lausanne, we tried Holy Cow.... We LOVE the juicy burger ... the perfect bun and the sauce! We wanted to come back for more but we had to travel to Geneva.... So far - personally : definitely Best Burger place

We stopped here for lunch and had "gourmet" burgers. The food was good but on the pricey side for a burger served in a basket lined with paper. The burgers are thick with lots of homestyle fries. If you enjoy hamburgers this is worth a stop.
