“Good! ”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

I was staying in a hotel near by and was really hungry. It was late at night and everything was closed, but there it was Holly Cow! to save me. The cashier was extremely nice, she was patient with me as I was deciding what to order. I took my order to the hotel and really liked it. Specially the fries. I think they don't have milkshakes though.

“Best burger I've ever eaten!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

I love burgers, really. This was the best one I've ever eaten in my life! It was so meaty, cheese was perfect, bun perfect and they served it just as I liked, with no salad, mayo or other sauces. Service was swift and friendly, price was ok an their own branded beer was lovely too. Would 100% recommend it!

“Best burgers around”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We've been to Holy Cow! a couple of times and have not been disappointed. They have a terrific variety of burgers, including chicken and vegetarian burgers (for people like me!) with some very interesting ingredient combinations. The prices are high (especially if you compare these burgers to those at McDonald's, but my recommendations is...don't) but Geneva prices are generally high, so they are not out of line with what you find elsewhere in the city, costwise. Portions are very generous (almost impossible to finish) and include very good fries. The place is very casual, with benches and no special effort put into a great atmosphere, but somehow this is just the right atmosphere for Holy Cow! Service is quick and friendly -- no complaints at all.
