The highlight of all of their offerings is the rice burger, which essentially replaces the bun with rice that's been formed into discs. The result is a delicious new take on the burger concept, with a range of available alternatives to the standard meat patty as well. You can get it with pork, fish, vegetables, etc. inside. The only drawback with this is that it tends to fall apart halfway through.
An unexpected aspect of the place is that they have a range of coffee and tea beverages on offer that tend to be quite good in general. One interesting-looking thing I never tried was the green tea latte. I'll be certain to check it out next time I go though.
Finally, onion ring fans will be glad to hear about the oni-pote side, which is a combination of onion rings and fries.
Remember, when specifying size in Japan, there's generally an S, M, and L size, which are read as the letters pronounced in Japanese. Thus, you would say esu, emu, and eru respectively. Don't worry if you forget this - saying "small" or "large" is usually equally as understandable.

The menu at Mos Burger has a fairly pedestrian selection of western fast food items. Hamburgers with various toppings, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, salads, soups, fries, onion rings, chicken nuggets, soft drinks and pies can all be found at the Mos. The fast-food prices are fairly typical, so you will not spend a fortune ordering food here.
One time I ordered a "rice burger" that contained beef slices laced with tangy soy sauce. The beef and a slip of lettuce are piled between two formed rice patties (are they toasted?), which are supposed to be the equivalent of a bun. It is a nice concept, and the flavor is not bad, but the idea does not quite work because the rice patty just cannot hold together long enough to support the meat. Surely you have had that frustrating feeling when the hot dog breaks through the seam of the bun? It is basically the same story here. Ask for a fork, or order one of the standard sandwiches with an actual bun.
