The burgers here are very good, they have alot of beef, a few chicken and some veg burgers. I had a bbq burger and it was beautiful, the chips were crunchy as a nice bonus. Will definitely be back!

We have eaten in Al’s in Sitges many times, we tried the Barcelona branch and whilst the food was ok, the place was dirty and the service poor. Dirty tables, dust and dirt on the ledges, ask for one burger medium and the other well...More

Didn’t expect to find a decent burger in Barcelona. Had the Big Al with curly fries. Very tasty and filling Also a nice range on local beers. Recommend the Triangle is you like an IPA with a citrus twist

Great choice of fillings to suit all tastes. Really great flavour & good quality ingredients. The brioche buns were really light & didn't fall apart. The curly fries had tonnes of flavour & were nice and crunchy.

Possibly one of the best burgers in Barcelona! We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meat: fresh and tasty (local meat too). The bread was also amazing. Not a huge range of options but still a good one. Though the place was almost...More

Called in to Big Al’s after checking on trip advisor for local restaurants in the area we were staying in Barcelona. Mega friendly staff, and the food was great. Probably one of the best burgers I’ve ever eaten. The size of these things are huge....More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

Authentic American burgers and friendly American service you won't find anywhere else in Barcelona. Big Al's offers dozens of big, juicy burgers made from freshly-ground, locally-sourced beef served on just-baked brioche buns. We also serve vegan and vegetarian burgers, homemade American desserts, and great starters like pulled pork nachos, our famous OMG chicken wings, and a salad (if you insist). We're also big on beer! We have 12 rotating taps of locally-produced craft beer and our friendly staff will be glad to make suggestions for pairing with the burger of your choice. Please note we don't take reservations, so it's best to arrive early on the weekends to avoid a queue. Come on in, say hi, and try what might be the best burger you've ever had.
