Ask any burger lover in Tokyo which are their favorite burger joints in the city, and Fire House is likely to be in that list. They have been in business in Hongo 3-Chome since 1996, and their continued success have led to a second delivery shop around the Shinbashi area. Fire House has quite an extensive menu. What makes Fire House burgers so good? Attention to detail, passion and careful sandwich construction. Each sandwich is balanced, the burger masters at Fire House have chosen not to give in to the temptation of going overboard with too many toppings unlike many other establishments.
It is common to find awesome looking burgers with a ton of toppings, yet the whole thing falls apart after a couple of bites. Nope, this isn’t a problem you’ll find at Fire House except for their “Mad Burger”, which is a 3 patty burger with a fried egg and cheese chilli. Good luck trying to keep that in one piece!
My recommendation? Go for the classic Bacon Cheeseburger. The apple burger and mozzarella mushroom burgers are standout items as well. The mad burger is very delicious but you probably shouldn’t order that unless you have a big appetite. All burgers come with several fried potato wedges and fried breaded onion rings.
Their menu is quite extensive, offering other items such as hot dogs, chilli, sandwiches and a long list of beverages. The thick creamy milk shakes are worth ordering as well.
