Best Fast Food Restaurants in Barcelona
While Barcelona has plenty of fabulous markets full of fresh and colourful produce to prepare at home, sometimes all you really need is something quick and cheap. And while we highly encourage you to take advantage of the wealth of fresh seafood, world-class cheeses and hams, we also understand that sometimes a plain burger with a side of fries hits the spot best. Whether you’re craving a slice of pizza, gooey mozzarella sticks, chicken nuggets or a hot dog, Barcelona has a wide range of options when it comes to fast-food, and we’re not talking about McDonald’s or KFC… We have rounded up the 3 Best Fast Food Restaurants in Barcelona.

The meat used to make Bacoa’s burgers is organic and can be traced back to certified Spanish farms.
