Review: Black Tap Craft Burgers and Shakes, Dubai

We all need to make time for burgers and shakes once in a while!

I discovered Black Tap just recently when I was scrolling down my Instagram feed and couldn’t help but drool over all the yummy-licious pictures I saw. (I’m very proud of the fact that I’m a major foodie!)

Black Tap is an American chain of restaurants, from New York. The brain child of Chef  Joe Isidori. It offers the best New York style burgers, fries, wings, craft beers, mason jar cocktails, salads, sides, and of course their world famous Crazy Shakes!

Black Tap Dubai

Located at Jumeirah Al Naseem (Madinat Jumeirah), Black Tap is probably one of the coolest Burger Joints I’ve seen in Dubai. The ambience is really good, loved the music 🎶 and of course the food was to die for!

Food Quality

I took my 3-year old with me and we ordered the Sweet N’ Salty and Cotton Candy Shakes, along with Black Tap Wings and The All American Burger. The shakes were out of this world!! My son and I thoroughly enjoyed them. The wings were fresh and tasted divine, loved the Spicy Korean BBQ Sauce on top. The burger was equally amazing, but unfortunately we were super stuffed by the time they were served, So we decided to bring ’em home!


I feel like I’ve had the worst luck lately with service here in Dubai, Black Tap is pretty awesome but the service wasn’t as good. Literally had to call for someone three times before the eventually entertained us.

Black Tap is definitely worth trying! If you have sweet tooth and lovvve cotton candy and thick chocolate shakes, then you definitely need to head down now. I honestly can’t wait to go back.

Overall Rating: 4.1/5
