The Burgers at the Burger Company

The Burgers at the Burger Company

The Burger Company has the personality of a chain fast-food restaurant with a bit more class and much better burgers. Ollie O prefers this less “Bohemian” ambiance to the disarray at nearby Burger Joint.

The Burgers at Brooklyn – Palermo Soho – Buenos Aires

The Burgers at Brooklyn – Palermo Soho – Buenos Aires

The Burgers at Brooklyn (which is more bar than restaurant) were slightly better than average. The “cheddar” is really an oozing sauce, not really cheese. This restaurant barely rates mentioning. There are better choices for burgers in the neighborhood.

The Burgers at Loreto Garden Bar – Colegiales – Buenos Aires

The Burgers at Loreto Garden Bar – Colegiales – Buenos Aires

At first glance this place looks like one of those salad-centric, sandwiches with arugula on multi-grain bread kind of places. Not somewhere you’d go for a burger. But truth is they produce a pretty good burger. As usual, the meat was not quite juicy enough and the grind was a little too fine making it a little “chewy”. But seasoning was good.

The Burgers at Kansas – Palermo – Buenos Aires

The Burgers at Kansas – Palermo – Buenos Aires

Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Casual Dining . Sandwiches-Salads . Cost: . The cheeseburger at Kansas is barely better than average and pretty pricey too. Service could have been better as well.

The Burgers at Mad Bar – Belgrano – Buenos Aires

The Burgers at Mad Bar – Belgrano – Buenos Aires

If you’re way out in Belgrano, Palermo Hollywood or Las Cañitas and don’t want to make take the long ride down to the Hard Rock then Mad Dog is the next best thing … possibly even better. Slightly better than average burgers. Really good fries and onion rings

The Burgers at The Burger Joint – Palermo Soho – Buenos Aires

The Burgers at The Burger Joint – Palermo Soho – Buenos Aires

Best burger in Palermo Soho but nowhere close to being the best in the city despite lots of press that says so. Fries were limp and greasy. Clearly overrated. Popular with students and pot-smoking musicians due to counter-culture decor and atmosphere. Personally … I wasn’t impressed.

The Burgers at Trixie – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

The Burgers at Trixie – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

The 50’s diner decor in this restaurant is a bit cliche but this genre seems to be all the rage in Latin America. Breakfast is a bit lacking but at least they have eggs. The burgers are among the best in town. You can even have a burger topped with chili.
