La Burger Bar (aka The BGR Burgers) is a gourmet burger restaurant located in Envigado near Medellín, which is very popular with good burgers.

I have a friend living near Parque Envigado and I have been to the restaurant several times. This restaurant originally opened in 2014. And it appears to have used two names: La Burger Bar and The BGR Burgers. When it first opened it was a smaller restaurant but expanded to add more space.

La Burger Bar (The BGR Burgers) has some very good burgers and it has 17 different burgers on the menu. But you can also choose additional toppings or remove toppings. So, the burgers can be custom made.
