we ♥ burgers.

The hamburger is without question the quintessential American dish. It's our comfort food, our go-to lunch when we're in a hurry; It can be our highest cuisine and our most lowly snack. The hamburger defines us to much of the rest of the world and is one of our most visible cultural exports. It's also really, really hard to find a good one in Europe. 

We opened Big Al's American Kitchen five years ago to craft real American burgers and show our neighbors just how good a burger can be. The result has surprised and delighted more than 300,000 diners from all parts of the globe. 

“the best burger in spain.”
