Fast Food has taken over the Pakistani Food Industry by a Storm


Since the advent of international fast food chains like McDonald’s and KFC, more and more restaurants serving fast food are springing up because of the huge surge in demand. The most popular item remains the proverbial burger, and because of that, a lot of burger joints have emerged all over the country. The local ones don’t fall behind either in terms of taste, quality and variety. If we look at Lahore independently, many different restaurants have opened up. Whatever your taste preference or price range, you will find a burger that will match your needs. Apart from these regular burger joints, you will also see many roadside small burger shops serving not only the very famous Anda Shami burger but also other burgers with a Desi twist. So let us talk about some of the best burger joints in Lahore.

Howdy has maintained the quality of its food, so it is quite a favorite place when it comes to burgers. Their burgers are always very fresh and packed with tons of flavour. The beef burgers like Son of a Bun and Tickle Pickle are especially a delight. The entire experience just becomes even better with a side of crispy French fries.

Outpost BYOB
The idea behind BYOB or ‘build your own burger’ is to give the customer control over what goes into their burger. Customers can decide the kind of buns, sauces, seasoning, patties, and sides they want. These charcoal grilled burgers are indeed a treat for the taste buds.

Hardee’s opened up in Pakistan in 2009 and has been a favourite of many burger aficionados ever since. Its burgers are thick, succulent, and incredibly delectable. These charbroiled 100% beef burgers are one of the best in town. Add their famous curly fries to the sides, and you will have an unforgettable meal.

Johnny & Jugnu
This is one of those burger joints that not just offers an excellent taste, but also a very good value for money. It puts up a fierce competition for all the international fast food chains. Johnny & Jugnu is famous for their many different and flavoursome sauces. For all the spice lovers out there, the Atomic sauce and the Chipotle sauce will give that perfect fiery punch of flavour. For those who prefer mild flavours, the Greek sauce and the Mushroom sauce are the way to go.

Burger Hub
Imagine a massive burger with double beef or chicken patties topped with loads of melted cheddar and smothered in a delicious sauce. Its first bite alone is enough to give you a food-induced coma. This is what having a burger from Burger Hub is like.

Big Moe’s Diner
This is an authentic 1950’s style American diner, serving some of the best burgers, steaks, and sandwiches. All the burgers are very fulfilling and indeed a joy to devour.

Coming to the desi burger joints, there are hundreds of different options in Lahore alone. These burgers are very different from the traditional burgers you get to taste in these fancy fast food restaurants. They have a taste of their own. Some well-known small burger joints in Lahore are Liberty Burger, Rizwan Burger, and Lasani Burger and Biryani.

A change in lifestyle is quite evident from the eating habits of the population. Life has become fast-paced, and just like the inclination towards ‘fast food’, people are leaning towards more convenience. So for instance, if dining-out was common before, now ordering-in is preferred. These changing trends have opened up avenues for delivery companies like, as people find it more convenient to order the food from the restaurant of their choice to the comfort of their home.
