The next stop on the journey to find Frankfurt’s best burger takes us to Eschenheimer Turm (more commonly known as “Tower Bar”). Just north of Hauptwache, it’s a mainly outdoor restaurant and bar with a tower that looks like a princess would be living at the top of it. Alas, there are nothing but toilets up there (that are very difficult to get to when drunk…)
The “Tower Burger” here is pretty famous but after a few menu reshuffles in the past year, it seems that this is no longer available, though there is an “Eschenheimer Burger”, seen above.
I didn’t have a burger myself (the salads here are pretty awesome) but I’m told that they were “ok”. It’s certainly not a posh burger and the buns and chips look like they’ve just been heated up from the freezer, but apparently the beef was pretty tasty. At just under 8 euros, it’s probably mid range on the Frankfurt burger market.
What I was really interested in, however was of course the homemade lemonade. This was on special promotion and was really refreshing. A little on the sharp side, though it went down very nicely. On the lemonade chart, I’d put it a little to the south of the lemonade from Yours Australian bar, which currently has the number 1 spot.
You can find Tower Bar at Eschenheimer Tor 45, Direkt im Eschenheimer Turm, 60318 Frankfurt am Main.
