5 Best Burger Joints in Bogota
Since 2017, Bogota is home of a contest that allows everyone to choose the best burgers in the city. The contest is called “Burger Master” and, in its first year, it was a success. The people of Bogota not only enjoyed hundreds of hamburgers at a lower price, but they also chose the five best burger joints in Bogota. When you visit this city, in addition to trying all the typical food, you can’t miss any of the hamburgers.
People said it has the best burger in Bogota. The restaurant is located in the sector of Usaquen and it is known for the burger of three cuts of beef with bread of “papa criolla”. Its style, more than a fast food service or street food, is gourmet. The quality of their dishes is proof of that. Despite serving hamburgers, its ingredients and preparation are, according to Bicono’s chef, of a modern bistro. When you go to Bicono, you have to be prepared to wait a while in line. Since they were rated as the best burger in the city, they are full at all times.
HACHE de Hamburguesa
It has the second best burger in Bogota. HACHE de Hamburguesa -also located in the Usaquen neighborhood- has an incredible variety of hamburgers and juices. If you’re craving for something different, you can even try a plate of chili or macaroni and cheese. One of their best burgers is a harmonious blend of 150 grams of meat, cheese, sauces, bacon, crispy onion and onion compote. If you want to try another one, we recommend the Iberian (pasta of olives and roasted garlic, Manchego cheese, Iberian ham and sangria reduction) and “La Chingona” (green and sweet-sour sauce of green tomatoes, onion and cilantro, tortilla chips, fresh cheese, jalapeño and red onion).
It has the third best burger in Bogota. Although their specialty is the “Chorilongos” -a type of hot dog with chorizo, handmade sausages, beans and all kinds of sauces-, their two burgers are delicious. One is the “Hamburguesonga”: grilled meat and tri-tip, cheese, bacon, pickles and homemade mustard. The other one is the “Tia Berta”: with the same type of meat, tomato, onion, and a mixture of green and purple lettuce. We recommend you to stop by this small restaurant in Chapinero and take a bite.
The fourth in our list is Gratin Burger, a restaurant with four locations in Bogota: Cedritos, Chico, Chapinero and Quinta Camacho. Most restaurants think about how to innovate in their burgers and Gratin Burger found a way to do it: cheese gratin on bread. As simple as that! Imagine a delicious piece of meat, a few pieces of bacon, a slice of onion and Buffalo sauce with a little bit of spice, all inside two buns of brioche bread sealed in butter and cheese gratin. Go through any of its four venues and enjoy the gratinated burger.
And it is the last place among the best burgers in Bogota. La Xarcuteria is a restaurant where the care for the ingredients is the greatest. Every day, the cooks of La Xarcuteria grind the meat they’ll use in each burger. They do not use frozen meat. Their best burger has 140 grams of ground beef, artisan brioche bread, onion, homemade aioli, lettuce, pickles, fresh tomato slices, slices of cheddar cheese and homemade bacon. We recommend that you visit one of its two venues on Calle 93 and Calle 85 to finish your burger route in Bogota!
