Voted best burger in North Carolina and I can see why!

I was shopping in Mooresville between Christmas and New Year’s and to tell you the truth, I was hungry! I was at Merino Mill and decided to stop into The Barcelona for a quick lunch. It was, literally the best burger I’ve eaten in a long time, if ever!

Barcelona Burger and Beer Garden at Merino Mill, 500 S. Main Street, Mooresville, NC

Ordering is simple

You can pre-order online or off the menu when you arrive. I was lucky to be first in line when I was there, but whether you are first or fifth, the line moves quickly. (I LOVE their burgers, and I’ve been there many times.)


Decorated with a soccer theme and brilliantly colored artwork, The Barcelona has comfortable open seating.

The Madrid Burger

I ordered my favorite burger which comes with American cheese, caramelized onion, roasted tomato, and spicy pepper sauce (really, just enough spice to keep it delicious, but not too much). Of course, I wanted the golden crispy, yummy classic fries with it, but you can also order sweet potato fries (crispy, sweet deliciousness), truffle fries (exotic, marvelous deliciousness), baked mac & cheese (sorry, I’m sure it’s wonderful with their rotisserie chicken–but I always order a burger!!), roasted veggies (absolutely wonderful especially when dipped in the Madrid sauce), a side salad or chicken soup.

Go ahead, take a fry! I know you want one! The other thing you will need is napkins because this is one of the juiciest, yummiest, burgers you will eat. And don’t worry, there are plenty of napkins on the tables.

Beer, wine or soft drinks – choose from a great selection

There is a great selection of drinks both non-alcoholic and alcoholic. Kombucha is a fizzy, fermented, non-alcoholic treat.

You MUST save room for dessert

Just look at these choices!

At lunch or dinner, it’s a great place to eat!

There is a reason Mona Lisa is smiling, she just ate a Barcelona burger!!
Great advice, I highly recommend you try it!
