Top 10 Best Burgers in Malaga
Compiling the list of the best burgers in Malaga is not an easy task, due to the number of places that have specialized in this type of food and the enormous competition between them, but I think I have achieved it, offering descriptions, details, menu and comments. from each of these restaurants.
Recently, the famous Malaga youtuber Esttik has made a hamburger route around the city and has made his list, with his comments and personal experience, so I have decided to join the best of his analysis, with other hamburger restaurants in Malaga that are not in his video, which I leave at the end of the article.
This article will be updated as we try all the hamburgers in Malaga, although we have already tried the vast majority.
To better organize the article, I have separated the best hamburger restaurants in Malaga by areas or neighbourhoods. And I would like to point out that the trend of smash burgers is already arriving in Malaga and we already have several places that either offer it as an option or have special smash burgers.
Best burgers in Malaga Center.
Some of the best burger restaurants in the city are concentrated in downtown Malaga, and the distance between them allows us to walk within a radius of 15-20 minutes.
La Calle Burger Malaga Centro.
One of the reference hamburger restaurants in Malaga, which with a franchise system already has 6 premises in Malaga capital and several in Andalusian provinces (Granada, Seville, Cadiz).
They are characterized by the use of different cuts in the hamburgers such as the vacuum, the entrails or the entrecote. They also have chicken, pork and 2 vegan options.
Their burgers are with few ingredients, where they try to make the product prevail. The bread is from Juanito Baker.
- Tasted Burger: original entrails.

Its special Josper touch (combination between a grill and an oven in a single machine) gives a unique touch to its meat for hamburgers, which are minced daily, kneaded by hand avoiding presses
On the menu they have almost 20 types of hamburgers (10 normal, 3 stuffed and 5 smash burgers), with a choice between black angus meat or free-range chicken. The bread is again from Juanito Baker, as in almost all.

However, I have to say that I have visited it on 3 occasions and it has not thrilled me on any of them.

Best burgers in Malaga – Teatinos area.
Teatinos area has become a reference in terms of gourmet burgers in Malaga with 4 places on our list of the best burgers in Malaga.
One of the best things about the hamburger restaurants in Teatinos is that they all have an outdoor terrace.
Nomads Burguer Company Teatinos.
With 2 locations in Malaga capital, Nómadas is the perfect option to eat a good, nice and cheap hamburger.
They are hamburgers without great artifice, but rich in flavor and good in quantity. The meat is certified fresh Galician beef.
My favorite burger at Nómadas is the aliñá, although the dirty bastard is also very tasty.
It has 18 hamburgers on the menu, with chicken, vegetable or salmon options.
Tundra Fusión Burguer.
Another of the reference hamburger restaurants in Teatinos. Founded by Sergio Jimenez and Luis Bandera, both chefs by profession, trained at the prestigious La Consula catering school.
Their hamburgers are giving the city a lot to talk about, despite the fact that on my two visits they have not moved me.
It has an extensive menu with 12 meat burgers, one fish burger and two vegan options. Its artisanal brioche bread stands out.
- Tasted Burger: London Bacon.
- Artisan brioche bread, our matured beef, cheddar, cheddar and beer cream, caramelized onion, bacon and old-fashioned mustard mayonnaise.
- Points to improve: meat, it is said matured, and it does not seem to be.
- Note: 6.5/10.
After the success of their premises in Algeciras, they have opened an office in Teatinos and it is being a complete success. The madness associated with hamburgers has reached Malaga.
We can say that it is a hamburger place with a show inside, but that does not overshadow the quality of its products, where you can eat some of the best hamburgers in Malaga.
Their menu is another crazy thing, with dozens of hamburger options, you can even make your own combination.
For a first time, it is worth going inside and seeing the show associated with each product, but for a second visit and enjoying the hamburgers, it is better on the outside terrace.
- Burger tested: Grome
- 200 g of minced beef, mixed with fresh onion, mozzarella and oregano, smoked white cheddar cheese, pickles, Gromenaüer by Campea sauce & dry tomato seed bread.
