Top 10 Best Burgers in Barcelona
Spaniards love burgers, and Barcelona is dripping in burger joins to climb into after a long day of touring the city.
These are 10 spots that I frequent throughout the year. All of them are distinctly unique and bring something different to the table, so it really depends on what you’re craving and the vibe you’re in the mood for. Read on!
1. Timesburg Poblenou in Barcelona
If you’ve not already seen these burgers on Instagram, you’re following the wrong Spanish food bloggers.
Timesburg has taken over Barcelona, with 8 branches throughout the city. This one in Poblenou is the most vibey, and they have extensive veggie options.
Trust Timesburg to have attempted a foie gras burger, and perfected it.
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 1pm to 10:30pm
ADDRESS: Carrer de Pujades, 168, 08005 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Llacuna
2. Bar Centro in Barcelona
In the mood for a juicy burger and ice cold beer? Bar Centro is the spot. There aren’t many vegetarian options here, but meat eaters will be charmed by the delectable menu.
Get the patatas bravas as a side, and don’t be shy in trying as many of the craft beers as you can stomach. This spot is a short walk from Barcelona’s Arc de Triomf, and the Ciutadella Park.
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 1pm to 4pm // 7pm to 9:30pm
ADDRESS: Carrer de Casp, 55, 08010 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Girona
3. Pim Pam Burger in Barcelona
Pim Pam Burger has been here in the el Born district since 2006. They have a no nonsense approach to burger making, as well as an understated pallet in terms of flavor.
These are American burgers like you see them in the movies: thick patties, sliced tomato, lettuce and onion. Cheese is optional, as are pickles and other more unique forms of garnish.
The fries are nothing special, and I find the burgers filling enough without them.
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 1pm to 11pm
ADDRESS: Carrer del Sabateret, 4, 08003 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Barceloneta
4. Anauco in Barcelona
You’ll find Anauco burger joints all over Barcelona, but I most enjoy this one near to the Sagrada Familia.
At Anauco it’s all about quality and fresh ingredients. Their meat is locally sourced and much tastier than most European beef in this class range. This is one spot where I would absolutely recommend getting the fries!
There are other meals, such as nachos, steaks and desserts for anyone who isn’t eating burgers tonight.
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 12:30pm to 4pm // 7:30pm to 10:30pm
ADDRESS: Carrer de València, 428, 08013 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Monumental
5. Bacoa Burger Ferran in Barcelona
Bacoa made burgers so good that they not only spread across Barcelona, but throughout greater Spain. You must eat here at least once whilst in the country — I’m almost certain I can fondly remember every burger I’ve ever eaten here.
Whatever you order, be sure to get the truffle mayo added to the bun. Admittedly, Bacoa’s fries aren’t worth the stomach space, but the burgers are worth every penny.
They have vegan options, too!
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 12:30pm to 9pm
ADDRESS: Carrer de Ferran, 10, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Drassanes
6. 99% Moto Bar in Barcelona
I stumbled into this Moto Bar one evening totally unplanned. To my delight they made one of the tastiest burgers in this part of the city; if you’re ever in the deep south of Barcelona, look them up!
I wouldn’t recommend Moto Bar for vegetarian food; this is a meat eaters den, you’re lucky to get garnish on your roll!
Hours: Monday TO Saturday — 10am to 2am
ADDRESS: Carrer de Joan Güell, 207, 08028 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Les Corts
7. Big Al’s – Real American Burgers in Barcelona
Back in the CBD, Big Al’s is all American dining with meals that you’ll break a sweat trying to finish.
Their curly fries are enough to justify a visit, but throw in a classic burger and shake, and you’ve got something very special in front of you.
Big Al’s also offers a range of in house beers to accompany your meal.
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 1pm to 4pm // 8pm to 12am
ADDRESS: Carrer de Còrsega, 178, 08036 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Urgell
8. Mamy Ildy in Barcelona
Just a short walk from Big Al’s is Mamy Ildy; a hamburger restaurant with diner-style appeal.
The burgers are delicious, and stacked up high. They also offer the best gluten free buns in Barcelona, which is worth noting if you don’t usually eat regular bread.
Vegans have the option of a seitan patty.
Hours: Tuesday TO Saturday — 1pm to 12am
ADDRESS: Carrer de Floridablanca, 148, 08011 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Urgell
9. Makamaka in Barcelona
There aren’t many burgers near Barceloneta beach that have impressed me to the point of wanting to recommend them to others, but Makamaka is a spot worth noting!
The burgers are chunky and soft, as well as crunchy in all the right places. Vegetarians can get some great meals here, and there are wraps and salads for those who aren’t in the burger mood.
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 1pm to 9:30pm
ADDRESS: Passeig de Joan de Borbó, 76, 08039 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Barceloneta
10. TGB in Barcelona
TGB stands for The Good Burger, and there are numerous joints across Barcelona city.
Beer and burgers flow like water once you enter though these doors. Again, the truffle option is not to be missed!
On Thursdays you can get two burgers for just €4.
