Everybody loves a good cheeseburger moment, but what about a moment that is so cheesy you won't even know whether you're about to devour a burger or a creature that's made out of cheese. In this listicle, we scoured the capital for burgers that are so cheesy they could potentially hurt you (in the best way possible tho). 

Pizza Burger from Caruso's // 6th of October, Nasr City, Rehab City, New Cairo

Legend has it than John D. Caruso was contemplating whether he should eat a pizza or burger when he was hit the realisation that there’s nothing stopping him from having both. The pizza burger is not a compromise, it is fully pizza and fully burger, pepperoni, cheese, pattie, dressing and all.

Melting Volcano from Daddy's Burger // Branches All Over Cairo

Daddy’s Burger seem to have taken ‘thinking outside the box’ too literally. Their burger comes with the cheese on the outside of the bun. We’re not quite sure how this concoction is meant to be eaten, just make sure to ask for extra napkins.

Philly CheeseSteak from Bohobun // New Cairo, Sheikh Zayed 

The Philly cheesesteak dates back to1930’s Philadelphia. Bohobun brought this American staple to Egyptian shores and for good reason. It’s hard to go wrong with thinly sliced steak, grilled onions, and peppers submerged in a pool of cheese.

Moo Burger from Ismail Pacha Burger // Nasr City, Heliopolis 

It seems a healthy serving of molten cheddar was not enough for Ismail Pacha Burger. Their Moo burger is topped off with two sticks of fried mozzarella and onion rings for good measure.

Ultimelt from Mince // Branches All Over Cairo


Mince’s Ultimelt holds more than initially meets the eye, this burger’s buns are actually two grilled cheese sandwiches.

Cheese Madness from Willy's Kitchen // Branches All Over Cairo


While many places serve burgers with cheese, Willy’s serve cheese with burger. Extending beyond the burger like Saturn’s marvelous rings, this burger has cheese to spare.

Cheese Jars Burger from MenCanta Burger // 6th of October

Mencanta is the only place on our list which doesn’t put cheese on their burgers. That’s because you get to do that yourself. Whether you prefer cheddar, mozzarella, or parmesan, help yourself to a jar of cheese and get messy.

Stuffed Buns from Lakma // Heliopolis

Resembling jelly donuts more than burgers, Lakma’s sandwiches are basically a beef patty baked with cheese into a bun, resulting in a smooth clean finish that’s hot and cheesy on the inside.
