To celebrate World Hamburger Day (yes, it really exists) here is The Local's pick of some of the best burgers in Madrid.


Sometimes only a burger will do. The satisfying combination of meat wrapped in a freshly baked bun with a myriad combination of sides and toppings is one of the world’s most popular dishes and Madrid has recently welcomed a host of new gourmet burger bars. 

Here’s The Local’s pick of Madrid’s best burger joints.
