They have, arguably, the best burgers in Daegu, and for much less than other, comparable, restaurants charge. The prices range from 6,500 for their signature “Boogie Burger,” that comes with lettuce, tomato, and cheese, to 11, 500 won for the “Greedy Burger,” which has lettuce, tomatoes, grilled onions, bacon, egg, jalapenos, relish, two kinds of cheese, and two burger patties! Boogie Burger has tons of signature burgers to choose from, so there’s something for every taste. And if you feel like your burger is still missing something, there are plenty of toppings you can ask to have added to it. A burger set comes with a generous portion of French fries, Cajun or regular, and a soda or Tropicana sparkling juice. The menu is written in English, so it’s completely accessible to foreigners who don’t speak much Korean.
If burgers aren’t enough to make you feel like you’re at home, maybe Boogie Burger’s side dishes will do the trick. You can order cheese fries or onion rings to go with your burger, but what’s most impressive is that Boogie Burger has a side of mac n’ cheese on their menu! Unfortunately, mac n’ cheese is a rarity here in Korea, so it’s good to see a restaurant selling this comfort food.
Boogie Burger is a very small restaurant in the heart of downtown. Go straight out of banwoldang station exit 10. Take your first left down a small alley with another burger restaurant on the corner. At the end of the alley, take a right and then your first left. You’ll pass Traveler’s Bar and Grill and the Lazy Diner (two other great places to get some Western food) on your left. Turn left down the second adjacent street, and you’ll see Boogie Burger on your left. The exterior of the restaurant is painted black, and the name is written in orange lettering. The inside of the restaurant is decorated with Sam Adams boxes and has a very relaxed vibe.
If you need a taste of home, Boogie Burger is all you need. Check it out on your next trip downtown.
