The American import par excellence has undergone a huge transformation in recent years. So when you need to refuel during your busy days among all the things to do in Madrid, don't settle for global fast food joints or giant themed restaurants casting shadows on Gran Vía in your quest for a great burger. Our hunt for perfect patties and fantastic fries turned up more than just those or snooty gourmet versions of the American classic (though a few of them as well). The obsession with fine ingredients that has gripped burger-makers in New York and London for the last few years has caught on in the Spanish capital too, with happy results: our list of the best burgers in Madrid (and where to get them) includes 1950s-style American diners, signature restaurant versions, and even experiments with (gulp!) zebra, proving that Spanish versions of US cuisines are much more than just a load of old 'carne picada'.
