Hamburguesería La Central is one of the most popular hamburger restaurants in the city. Located in the heart of the city on Via Laietana, they consider their burgers be the very best you’ll find in Barcelona.

Each gourmet burger on the menu is 100% homemade, served on white or wholewheat buns that are baked fresh daily. The burgers, made with the freshest local ingredients straight from the market, are cooked one at a time on the grill. The meat is organic 100% Black Angus beef from the Pyrenees and makes their burgers some of the highest quality in the city. In addition to the classic beef burgers, they also offer chicken, vegetarian, and vegan options as well. With no additives or preservatives, you can feel good about your burger choice at La Central.

With far more on the menu than the standard hamburgers and cheeseburgers with lettuce and tomato, La Central offers a wide selection of unique artisan burgers. Choose from options like the “Criolla” made with provolone, chimichurri, and house mayonnaise, the spicy “Bristol” burger with lettuce, tomato, smoked bacon, and spicy chutney, or the “Oriental” with wakame, onion, cucumber, toasted sesame seeds, teriyaki sauce, and house wasabi mayo.

Their house special, the “La Central” burger, comes with lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, pickles, smoked bacon, fried brie, homemade potato chips, and their sundried tomato house mayo. Whatever your choice, you can’t go wrong at La Central. To complete your meal, they also offer sides like rustic fries, spicy bravas potatoes, or a house salad. They even make their very own La Central craft beer that complements their burgers perfectly.
