Probably the most OG burger place in the city, Burger Joint is a stalwart on the Buenos Aires burger scene. These tasty patties are served with crispy fries and there are a host of sauces on hand to pimp your combo. They also have sangria and craft beer on tap, and are so popular that they recently extended their premises out the back, meaning you can now eat on the patio, on the curb out the front or in the graffitied interior that recalls the joint’s New York inspiration. Our tip: get the Mexican burger.

Never one to be left off a best-of Buenos Aires list, NOLA is where it’s at when it comes to fried chicken burgers. A welcome break from the red meat feast, this New Orleans hipster hangout does the best chicken burgers in town. Crunchy breasts on a bed of lettuce and a homemade bun can be slathered in NOLA’s tasty and spicy sauces, while if you’re not in the mood for bread, the chicken nuggets or the gumbo will take you right back to the south. Be sure to go for happy hour to cut down on your beer expenditure, as you’ll definitely be here for a while.

If we’re going to put one burger chain on the list, it’s got to be Mi Barrio Hamburgesería. The standard of franchise and burger chain sandwiches can vary wildly in Argentina, but Mi Barrio is pretty dependable, and they deliver. With seven locations in the capital alone and one in Mendoza, Mi Barrio really is taking over your barrio with its burgers. If you’re feeling brave, give your insides a test and order the double patty burger.
