The burger revolution has arrived to Buenos Aires and the amount of places to eat burgers in the city is increasing every day. There are now plenty of places where you can eat burgers made of argentinian prime meat. I have taken the arduous task of trying different burgers offered in Buenos Aires and this is the list of my favorites. The list will grow, as I have some places still on my list.

Located in the heart of Palermo SoHo, this place is definitely one of my favorites. Burgers and fries are excellent but I also love the grunge vibes of the place, inspired New York’s Burger Joint. My favorite: the American, because bacon + BBQ = heaven
Price: AR$160 Burger + fries + soft drink. AR$180 combo with beer.
Located in Núñez neighborhood, these burgers have a special taste because they are made 100% with “bife de chorizo”, a special meat cut in Argentina. The atmosphere is super friendly, a small bar with hipster vibes with communal tables.
Price: AR$130 burger + fries. AR$190 combo with craft beer
This burger was awarded the Best Burger in BA in 2017. Certainly it is very tasty and the place has a very cool environment. Fries are delicious and abundant. There is also a cocktail bar and a big variety of sauces and dressings. Try the mayo with garlic! Since the place won the award in 2017, it is really popular and crowded.
Price: AR$210-270 burger + fries.
A classic bur gourmet style burger. “La clásica” (tomato, lettuce, cheddar cheese, bacon, cucumber, caramelized onions) can’t fail. Best thing? It opens until 7 a.m. Beer is sold too. They have locations in downtown, San Telmo and Palermo.
Price: AR$90 – AR$130 burger only. Great promos at noon.
Tierra de Nadie
One of the most acclaimed burgers in B.A. They have recommended me this places so many times I needed to go and I managed to enter the place the third time I tried. It is extremely popular and the place is really small. But it was worth the wait, the burgers are delicious! 200 gr of premium meat and artisan bread. There are many options to choose from, even stuffed burgers. Luckily they will open a new and bigger location soon.
Price: AR$160 and AR$188 burger + fries
A burger laboratory inspired in the popular Breaking Bad series. Burgers are super original, with lots of ingredients, sauces and even a BBQ ribs burger!. Don’t leave without trying the ketchup with curry. It became so popular there are two locations now and are planning on opening more.
Price: AR$130-200 burger + fries
Burgers inspired by the barrios (neighborhoods) of Buenos Aires, every Burger is named by one. The bread bun is amazing, excellent meat and a nice combination of ingredients. They already have 9 locations! Every month there is “Burger of the month” with a new neighborhood.
Price: AR$100-$130 burger only
Hidden in the beautiful Dellepiane passage in Buenos Aires downtown, this burger joint has the perfect environment, with small tables on the sidewalk next to the historic pavement. Delicious burgers, craft beer, and a unique location. Try the Dellepiane sauce!
Price: $130-$210 hamburger + French fries.
Bulls BBQ & Smoke House
I’m going to make a special mention for the pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw from Bulls BBQ because it is the best in Buenos Aires! The burgers are delicious too, but of course what stands out most is the quality of the BBQ sauce. A small place with nice atmosphere in the neighborhood of Palermo.
Price: AR$160 pulled pork sandwich + chips
Burgers on my pending list: La Birra, 180 Burger, The Burguer Company, Holy Burgirls, Pony Line and Paris Burguer.
