Spanish food is good and all, but sometimes you just need to sink your teeth into a big juicy burger. Whether it’s an American classic cheeseburger, or something with a twist, a burger is almost always a good idea! If you’re looking for the best burgers in Madrid then look no further. Continue reading below for our top picks!
Once you’ve tried all the amazing burgers in Madrid, make sure you check out even more articles about Madrid’s delicious food & drink options!
1. Goiko Grill
We are in love with Goiko Grill and its hamburgers. No one had revolutionized the hamburgers´ world as much as them when they first arrived, always full! The only bad thing about Goiko Grill is that it gives us the feeling that not all restaurants are the same, there are some awesome ones and others not as cool. In any case, we stay with their “Kevin Bacon”, a savage combination of meat and bacon that leaves you baffled every time!
2. New York Burger
You just HAVE to go to this place: New York Burger. Rich in delicious, smokey flavours, all named after famous NYC areas – this place is a true American dream. You can choose from 16 amazing burger options and six possible sides, with one included in the price. They even offer more famous American dishes (sandwiches, ribs & co.) and also if you’re vegetarian, you can get happy here. You can currently enjoy New York Burger in five different places in Madrid (even though it feels like you will also pay New York City every time a quick visit).
3. Steak Burger
If it has “burger” in the name it’s got to be good, right? Steak Burger is a popular restaurant chain that offers great quality, artisan style burgers in a modern yet comfortable location. You can even try their specialty – a 200 gram piece of meat that has been aged for 45 days!
4. Alfredo’s Barbacoa
Considered the best in Madrid by many, these are some 160gr or 250gr very famous hamburgers (available in double size) grilled in an American style with little bread and lots of meat! The price per hamburger is about 10€. Alfredo’s Barbaco has three locations in Madrid and it is better to book in advance. Also, if you are celiac, there are great options for you at the Conde de Aranda 4 location!
5. Burger Joint
When looking for the best burger joint, you, of course, need to go to – Burger Joint. This amazing place in the Chamberi district offers some really incredible combinations. Burger Joint uses the freshest ingredients from local businesses and even its sourdough bread is homemade. Top tip: if you consider eating before 5pm, get the “Menu Medio Día”. For only 13€ you can get a combo of a burger, fries, a drink and a brownie.
6. O’hara’s Irish Pub & Restaurant
O’hara’s (Vía de las Dos Castillas 23, Pozuelo de Alarcón, Madrid) has all the main qualities of a great Irish tavern. It counts with 52 brands of national and international beers, gins menu, cocktails and special coffees. Never forgetting its great variety of spectacular hamburgers, of course! When the quality is maximum in hamburgers, the classics never fail. That’s why we recommend that you try the Classic Hamburger and, in addition, you can accompany it with the famous O’hara’s fries or the delicious onion rings. You can even enjoy 8 giant screens to see all kinds of sports!
7. Mad Restaurants
There are two other very “mad” places, worth checking out: Mad Cafe & Mad Grill. Mad Cafe is actually one of the first hamburger restaurants in the city, already making burgers for ten years. Mad Grill has two locations in Madrid, one in the Alonso Martinez district and one in Cuzco. All their signature burgers are homemade – also their craft beers. Inspired by the true American cuisine, you can get a burger plus a side for somewhere in between 9 – 12.50€.
Revoltosa (Plaza del Rey, 4 and Calle del Prado, 4) is a tavern popular amongst locals, whom had already fell in love with its hamburger «Castiza». This year though, they keep surprising its public with «La Chulapa»: it is a 100% beef hamburger with ‘Idiazabal’ cheese, bacon, crispy onion, old-fashioned mustard and tomato jam. You can try it for only 10€ in both its stores which, fyi, have received several awards!

La H es muda can’t be missing on your list. From classic – to fancy, here you can get it all. Definitely a must-try though isn’t a burger, but their extremely delicious Tequenos (a fried breaded cheese stick). Also their monthly burger always knocks us out of our socks.

On the menu you can find a variety of delicious & original hamburgers, which you can pair with dozens of different beers.
15. Frankie Burgers
Just within a short time, Frankie Burgers became well-known. Great quality, freshly produced and unbelievably tasty. We heard that especially the Super Frankie Cheese Bacon Burger (with beef, double cheese, double bacon and the infamous Frankie salsa) is a must try! Frankie Burgers is located on Calle de Ponzano 46 in the Rios Rosas district, but if you rather prefer a good burger on your couch, you can also easily order it to your door with Glovo or UberEats.
This restaurant will make you feel like you’re at home. Not only because of the amazing menu on offer, but also because both locations of FreaksBurger just look like incredibly stylish & cozy living rooms. Sounds good to you?

We don’t have anything else to add, Freaks Burger is located at Calle de Gabriel Lobo 20 & Calle de Sta. Teresa 12.
