Barcelona is well in on this trend, and finger-licking, mouth-watering burger bars can be found all over the city.
From classic burgers to burgers topped with blueberries and brie, there’s a taste for everyone. So to help you figure out where to get the best hamburguesa in the Catalan capital, here are our top 6 burger joints in Barcelona.
1. b Burger Barcelona
This hidden gem in Barcelona might easily offer the best burger in town. Their creative burgers are made to perfection every time. You could try the b-Bronx, a burger topped with bacon and a fried egg or the b-Dali, topped with foie gras.
A burger wouldn’t be complete without a side of fries, but instead of the long, thin potatoes we’re used to, b Burger serves the Spanish equivalent: patatas bravas topped with their own homemade spicy sauce.
To wash it all down you can choose from the selection of locally-brewed beers at this top Barcelona burger bar. Get there early because it’s a local hangout that fills up quickly.

We recommend the seasonal burger made with local fresh produce. You could also try the La Bacoa burger, a classic topped with cheddar, bacon, pickles, and their very own spicy mustard.
