I have only ever ordered food through Deliveroo, so haven't actually been into the restaurant. We have ordered a few times now and they do very good burgers and have lots of vegetarian options too!

Rue Merciere is arguably the most touristic version of Lyon gastronomy you can imagine. Although it would take weeks to review all the real and fake bouchons and multinational foods on offer in this area, King Marcel has the advantage of offering a simple proposition...More

The burger itself was good and made to point perfect. But my experience in the restaurant about the hygienic situation was horrible. The burgers are served on little tablets, covered with a paper napkin. They are already prepared on the counter for the next costumer....More

Even if both burgers I took were tasty enough, I need to highlight that it was the most dirty burger restaurant I've ever been. I speak only for the kitchen/grill and not the sitting area. Especially the two guys who were involved on grilling and...More

We're happy you 've appreciated the taste of our burgers. Regarding your other remark I'me sorry but it's IMPOSSIBLE to use plastic gloves when you work at the grill and the fryer : they would melt !!!!! Thus your appreciation (and title ) are unfair!...More

This is the best burger we had in France. The quality of meat is exceptional. Overall, highly recommend it if you are in Lyon and looking for fast bite with high quality burgers.. Friendly waiters also.
