For many visiting Barcelona, there is sometimes not enough time in the day to do and see everything. However, you can try! You may prefer to have a quick lunch and, therefore, Fast Food in Barcelona can be a great alternative.

Pans & Company
The two chains Pans & Company and Bocatta offer a range of hot and cold sandwiches. They are located all over the city and you can easily find them in the centre. They are great if you are in a rush and want something cheap but tasty and filling.
This fantastic fast food restaurant first opened in 1991 and has since then spread to several locations all over Spain. The quality of their food is consistently good, the service is fast and the prices are very fair. The Pans & Company menu includes salads and sandwiches, with succulent ingredients, such as British bacon, roast beef, Breton sausage and chicken breast. They also have a nice selection of sides, including french fries, the local favorite patatas bravas, chicken nuggets and onion rings.

It´s the perfect place, if you´re in the mood for a cone of something crispy. Their menu offers 3 different sizes, ranging in price between 2.50€ to 5.90€. You will also have the option to choose from several spectacular, home-made sauces – everything from the traditional ketchup or mayonnaise to Greek yoghurt, garlicky aioli and brava sauce. If you´re extra-hungry, you can also add some toppings like chili con carne, bacon, Roquefort cheese and caramelized onions. Sound divine? That´s because it is!
So head on over and get yourself a portion of salty, crunchy and delicious fritas. We promise you won´t be disappointed!

And then there´s the most emblematic centerpiece of a classic fast-food meal, the juicy burger. But just because it´s fast-food doesn´t mean it has to be dripping in grease, with the meat of questionable quality. At Bacoa you will find some of the most delicious fast-food burgers in the city, freshly grilled and served up with some fantastically crunchy and delicious french fries on the side. The meat used to make Bacoa´s burgers is organic and can be traced back to certified Spanish farms. They offer a wide variety of options, including the traditional beef burger, along with vegan and vegetarian burgers, even chicken burgers. For that one a gluten–free diet, they also offer burgers as salads, without the bread. As you arrive, simply tick off the type of signature burger you want or custom-select your toppings. Our personal favorite is the Swiss Burger, with a layer of potato rösti and Gruyere cheese.
Bacoa has several locations in Barcelona, but perhaps the most popular one is near Plaça de Universitat, where hoards of hungry college students flock to the burger joint to satisfy their hunger. If you´d like to find an apartment in this area, perhaps check out this fabulous Apartment Plaça Catalunya.
