1. I have eaten at Burger Ranch and it's much better than 99%
MEA   (05.11.10)
of American burger places. They have the smarts to offer actual ground meat and fresh veggies. During Pessah the Zion Square BK was empty, but across Jaffa Street the Burger Ranch place had a long line, so I went to check it out and had one of the best burgers of my life. I had to laugh. Israelis--beating them at their own game yet again.
2. I find it sad. Burger King R.I.P.

at least we left with McDonald's Burger King was good as McDonald's. both of which far better than Burger Ranch Burger Ranch has the presumption to demand excessive cost for a meal that is not even close to McDonald's quality. McDonald's offers meals that are cost less and better quality. then there is the wonder, why not buying Israeli made. cause Israelis traders, want to screw the customers, by selling goods that are are less qualitative for a price as it is best made. last time I bought from burger ranch. the buns did not look as in the picture. if anyone saw the film "Falling Down" will comprehend what I mean. there was a time when Burger Ranch was best. but with the new owner it deteriorated.
3. Good riddance

nasty plasticky junk food - won't be missed. Burgers Bar is the real deal - freshly prepared in front of you. Can't beat it!
4. Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce... (end)

5. Burgers Bar #1
6. Burger Ranch & Burger King
Josh ,   Boston, USA   (05.11.10)
High franchise fes for Burger King are probably the factor behind the Orgad brother's decision. The fact that Burger Ranch is already a successful brand can only enforce that decision.
7. What, you take the weapons, and not the burgers?
Cameron ,   USA   (05.11.10)
A 1000 curses upon y'all!
8. The King is dead, long live the King. At least they
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (05.11.10)
closed on Pesah. So, where does Burger Ranch get their halel beef?
9. real food
The Last Zionist ,   Eilat   (05.11.10)
In Eilat the "fast food" stores pocket the VAT and for the same price as a meal at one of them I can sit down and be served a real meal of real food at a restaurant.
10. Craaaap
BK's hamburgers are so good... I have never attempted to eat at burger ranch but now it seems I have no choice...
11. Make them "kosher"!!
Ram ,   London   (05.11.10)
12. I prefer couscous!

13. To each his own....
Malone ,   Hfx   (05.12.10)
I personally wouldn't eat at either BK or MacDonalds,never been to a Burger Ranch,so can't comment there.
14. burgers in relation to aliyah !
y-net web reader ,   Niles, IL, USA   (05.12.10)
...there should be an aliyah law that great burger joints are a must
15. Eat Blue and White
Mark ,   Jerusalem   (05.12.10)
What's the reason? They closed in Maale Adumim because it was over the so called green line, that's 40,000 people we are talking about B"H. My guess the change over is to do with the Arab Boycott. But in the end we win, one should only eat Blue and White. Next Big Mac will close their doors I pray Burger Bar take them over. Eat Kosher Eat Blue and White
16. Burger Ranch History
M.Davison ,   Ra'anana, Israel   (05.12.10)
Burger Ranch was established in 1970 on Ben-Yehuda Street in Tel Aviv, not far from the US Embassy by a South African oleh. Through hard work and persistance, the owner made it a franchise outfit with over 40 branches around the country by 1985, beating off the European "Wimpy" chain and "Wendy's" from the US for the market. The individual franchise owner had the option of running it Kosher or not, depending on his local market. The kosher branches open all around the country during Pessach with special "Kosher for Passover" buns approved by the Rabbinate. As far as I'm concerned, none of the burger chains (MacDonald's, BK or BR) can hold a candle to the old-style flat-grill burger joints that have cropped up in recent years (Burgers Bar, Black Burger, Agadir, etc.), where they invoke the nostalgia of a burger in a US diner back in the 1950s and 60s.
17. Make them vegetarian!
18. Shoko pie
foodlover ,   4eve   (05.12.10)
plz keep the shoko pie going
19. kosher?
debbie ,   nola   (05.14.10)
i haven't been to israel since 1970 so i am wondering what BK is like in Israel?Is it or is it not kosher?I thought McD etc were made to be kosher. Is this not the case?
20. Burger Ranch sauces.
Mike ,   Petach Tikva Israel   (05.14.10)
The Burger Ranch bbq,thousand islands and spanish sauces are what seperates the delicous flavor of the Burger Ranch burgers to all the rest of them.Keep them rolling guys.
21. "Burger Ranch Bull" is the preferred brand in Israel? Huh?..
Tahl ,   Ashdod   (05.14.10)
What kind of tasteless, clueless, provincial Israelis did they poll here? They certainly didn't ask for my and my family's opinion... Burger Ranch's burgers taste funny and plasticky, I could swear they use inferior meat. Whereas BK's whoppers are quality-controlled by the USDA, and taste like actual beef. BR's fries are even more horrific, so soggy and oily in comparison to McDonald's and BK's dry and lean fries. BR's chicken dishes are most definitely no competition to McDonald's yummy Chicken Select. I tried BR's "freshly cut salad" - it was actually very stale, and nothing but fresh. BR's ketchup and BBQ sauces are absolutely despicable, and taste like industrial preservatives. But the absolute worst of all, is BR's deserts... I wouldn't even feed my dog with the crap-tasting Tapu-pie or Choko-pie. The only thing I'll give BR credit for is their rather-tasty onion rings, unbelievably even better than BK's (McDonald's don't serve them). But all in all, BK and McDonald's are in a totally superior league than BR.
