The Barcelona Burger & Beer Garden, a popular restaurant that’s won widespread praise in the Charlotte area, is now open in Winston-Salem.
The restaurant is located in Innovation Quarter’s Bailey South at the corner of Patterson Avenue and Fourth Street. Hours are 11:30 am to 9 pm daily.
The Barcelona Burger & Beer Garden serves the best cheeseburger in North Carolina, according to MSN.com . “The Barcelona Classic keeps it simple with a thin, charred beef patty, American cheese, salad, pickles, house sauce and a warm, soft bun,” MSN.com wrote. Sides include mac and cheese, roasted veggies, and classic, sweet potato or truffle fries.
The new restaurant will seat about 150 diners, with additional patio seating. Diners can see their meals being prepared in the open kitchen. Meals will also be available for take-out.
Burgers feature fresh prime Angus beef with no additives, seasoned with a custom blend of sea salt and all natural spices. The veggie burger blends black beans, quinoa, and walnuts topped with cheese, onion, lettuce, roasted tomato, and house sauce on a whole wheat bun. Gluten free buns are available, and customers can request an individually sealed bun to avoid cross contamination.
Other entrees include rotisserie chicken available by the quarter, half or whole. A popular side dish is the Kale Berry Salad with strawberries, blueberries, sunflower seeds, and pineapple vinaigrette. Try house-made cannoli or a delicious slice of cake for dessert, and look for regional beers on tap to come.
The first Barcelona Burger opened in 2017 at Merino Mill on Main Street in Mooresville, N.C. The Barcelona Burger has won the Normy Award for best burger from the readers of The Mooresville Citizen every year since the restaurant opened.
Why that name? "Barcelona is my favorite city - full of life, happiness and good food," says owner Michal Bay. "I chose Barcelona because of all the good memories. You wouldn't necessarily associate the city with great burgers, but I've had many there with friends."
Bay is known for his community involvement. The Barcelona Burger and its sister restaurant in Mooresville, Aliño Pizzeria, partnered with their diners to donate more than $71,000 to World Central Kitchen, providing meals to Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war. During the COVID-19 pandemic, The Barcelona Burger provided complimentary meals to nearly 2,000 healthcare workers, teachers, day care workers, and other COVID heroes in the Mooresville area.
The street address of The Barcelona Burger & Beer Garden is 450 N Patterson Ave, Unit 100 in Winston-Salem.
