In recent years, more and more burger chains and places have sprung up and have taken up the fight against Burger King and McDonald's. But where do you get Denmark's best burger? It's almost a civil war in some of the larger cities of Denmark. The new burger restaurants have been successful and several of them have already expanded their territories. Some of them have even been named in international magazines. But who really makes the most delicious burgers if you ask the Danes? We have decided to find out which is why we need your help now!

Our intention is to make a list as well as a map of the best burger joints and restaurants - and ultimately find the best place to eat burgers (just as we did with the best ice cream parlors)!

Denmark's Best Citizens

Denmark's Best Burger

Every year we find and announce Denmark's Best Burger. This is done by a poll where you can vote for your local favorite via SMS. Along the way we also find the best places in the regions and the largest cities. The five regional winners, together with the five who received the most votes, advance to the final.

The poll for the best place in the cities is a part of the regional poll, which means that the number of votes in this poll is the same as in the regional poll. 

See the rules and terms for our polls as well as tips for nominees here


The timeline for the 2019-poll is ready:

  • Nomination: August 20 - August 25
  • Regional poll: August 26 12 PM - September 10 12 PM
  • Final: September 11 12 PM - September 18 12 PM

Below you can vote for your favorite. If this is not on the list you can also nominate it below.


The 10 finalists have been found! Vote for your favorite between September 11 12 PM and September 18 12 PM. You can use the same code as in the regional poll.

UPDATE 17/9 10.13 AM

An inattentive company in Sønderborg has, against our rules, created a Facebook competition to get people to vote for Lazy Dog. It's against the rules, but it's not Lazy Dog's fault.

To keep the poll clean of competitions, we have deducted Lazy Dog 229 votes, which is the number of participants in the competition on Facebook.

UPDATE 17/9 12:46 PM

We have received a lot of angry messages and have been made aware that our rules do not technically prohibit competitions made by others.

See our rules here

That is why we have returned the 229 votes to Lazy Dog and point out that anyone other than the nominees is allowed to create competitions and give awards until we can rectify this after the current poll. However, we hope that you will abstain from this and let it be about the best burgers and not the biggest awards.

We are sorry about the inconvenience.


Sunday, July 9, 2018 was the last day to vote for your favorite in our big poll on Denmark's Best Burger 2018. We should have announced the ultimate winner, but unfortunately, excitement was turned into frustration when the website got technical problems during the final sprint on Sunday evening. At this time, The Burger Shack in Aarhus and Mikuna, also from Aarhus, were very, very close.

The reason is due to a combination of the many of you who wanted to support your favorite on the finish line, but unfortunately also a lot of very strange traffic from abroad that we haven't experienced before. Our website can withstand a lot of traffic but not to the extent that was the case this Sunday night. This means that many of you went in vain and we truly apologize. On this note, we cannot identify one separate winner, but rather two:

The Burger Shack and Mikuna both got more than 3.300 votes. Congratulations!

3d place went to Pagoden in Ølgod, who got 1.505 votes. Congratulations!

In the months that the poll has been running, 35 burger joints have gotten the 250 votes that is required to get on our map of the best places in Denmark. That is why we also have to congratulate these 35 burger joints who is also worth a visit in 2018::

    The punishment you have given Lazy Dog is directly unreasonable. The conditions in Nova Data's competition are not that you have voted, but they mention that you should vote for Lazy Dog. To think that everyone who has commented on the announcement has voted to participate in the competition is unfair. They deserve no punishment for this.

  2. Lasse Nielsen

    Think Cafe Razz Middelfart is cheating. Many votes in such a short time, notice how things were going with the Funen vote. It is unrealistic to get so many votes in such a short time. Is there anyone from Opdag Denmark who has received a little extra bonus here recently? Wait until the end of the poll so you can see what I mean. If they can't reach the tops then I know nothing.

  3. Sarilarin Sülo

    The king of them all is Chicago Burger Odense 🙂
    Forget about the others.

  4. Cafe Big Chef Ringsted

    1. Lone Mikkelsen

      Whatever the outcome, Pagoda is and will become the country's best burger place & #8230; In the beer god

  5. Oliver hesseldal

    The Old Shop on Samsø makes a fantastic burger a little hidden gem

    1. Rikke - Discover Denmark

      Thanks for your contribution, Oliver! The Old Store has now been added to the list.

  6. Carsten

    Isn't that a very misleading investigation? The places that are centrally located in big cities will most often win as they have the highest traffic. Those who respond to these studies have probably tried a few places at most. The only real thing must be a blind test & #8230;

  7. Empty

    Of course, many voices came from abroad at the last minute. It was with the guarantee that the vegans just needed help. I bet 80% of the voices on mikuna have never eaten there.

    By the way, I don't understand what a Vegan restaurant does on a list like this one in the first place. A user contains meat!

  8. Mads Buchardt

    You are no better than the last burger you craved on the counter & #8230; STRAM UP THERE !!

  9. Elisa Frans

    Hey, can you see that Janes who is in the list of the top 35 is not on the map yet? Of course understand that you have had problems with the technique, but we have been at 250 for some time now & #8230; Thank you and hug from Ærø

    1. The editors

      Hi Elisa. Sorry for the wait! That Janes is on now.

  10. Jeanett Pietens

    We are still missing Gardenje, Gudmindrup Strand, 4573 Højby on the map

  11. Jane Frans

    Hello Discover Denmark! 🙂
    We are thrilled to be among the 35 best burger places in Denmark & #8211; but we haven't been put on the map?
    Please greet us at At Janes, Marstal, Ærø

    1. The editors

      Hi Jane! Sorry for the wait. You are on the map now 🙂

  12. Anne-Mette Hougaard Hansen

    Hi! Missing to see & #8220; normann's & #8221; in Hirtshals marked on the map ?? They also reached over 250 votes and are mentioned and congratulated among the other 35 locations?

  13. Daniel Alejandro

    It must be Mikuna in Aarhus! Even though I love meat burgers, this one can just as well!

  14. Andreas Gade Jensen

    Very clear Mikuna !!
    Can't they get one in Kbh soon?

  15. Ann Pedersen

    Obviously Mikuna in Åarhus!

  16. Helle K

    How can you close the poll 1 hour before midnight? ? It simply does not hold.
    It is then mega cheating.

  17. Monica Nielsen

    Hello Experience Denmark,
    It is 23:06 and I would like to vote but there is only one silly card and this endless list of comments & #8230; what happened to the mentioned list where you can vote until 24? Have been updating since last 10 minutes and the list remains pissed off. Super sorry and a little disappointing that something has gone wrong or that the vote is closed ahead of time.

  18. Mikkel

    Is there a reason MASH is not included? After all, have won a few burger awards.

  19. Ole Haahr Hansen

    The Pagoda & #8211; they are just the best

  20. Mehrdad

    The burger shack is just always delicious. No one is better!
