Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions. I’m always looking for ‘off the beaten track’ hidden gems that have amazing hamburgers.

I update my burger experience regularly, so come back often to find (and see) the greatest hamburgers in Vancouver!

Milestones – American Burger

Milestones burgerMilestones

Well, I haven’t had a burger in a while and its been 8 hours since my last meal. I had some time to kill and I was hungry, so I decided to try Milestones. I had the Milestone’s Beef Burger with the ‘American’ inspired toppings – that is double smoked bacon and cheddar. The burger is described as coming with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle on a toasted sesame seed bun. I added their avocado salsa for an extra $1.99 – that was not worth it – I would rather have plain fresh avocado.

When I got the burger, it looked amazing – the beef was thick and juicy and the bacon was overflowing ! The taste was great and I actually thought to myself, where’s the bun? – this is not a bad thing. The burger filled me and satisfied me very much. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back. The only negative I would say is that I think they butter the buns prior to toasting – as many places do. I personally find this overdoes the grease factor – I mean, we already have the burger grease and the mayo – we don’t need anymore. But that was a minor issue – wouldn’t stop me from going back in a heartbeat – And of course – I could have asked for no butter on the bun, as I usually do ! – My fault there !

    Point Pub – Point Burger

    The Point Burger2524 St Johns Street, Port Moody, BC.

    Today, I went to the Point Pub with a 2 for 1 coupon, only to find out that we could not use the coupon for burgers – what a drag.
    Anyways, the burger arrived, looked quite good – it was open and had lettuce, tomato, red onion and a pickle. I added bacon for an extra $2.00 (twice as much as most places charge). At first, the burger tasted good, but as I went on the sauce overtook the burger and made it just so-so. Overall, not a terrible burger – one of the better pub burgers I have had, but I haven’t had too many. The burger is a house made 1/2 pounder and you can tell – The burger is not round at all ! – which isnt a bad thing. Nice to see places making their own burgers.

      Moxie’s Classic Grill – Classic Beef Burger

      Moxie's BurgerDecided to try out Moxie’s Burger today. The description on the menu is “all our beef burgers are served on a toasted kaiser & topped with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles & grainy dijon burger sauce” I asked for avocado and I got it ! The burger was pretty good – not too greasy, not too dry. Overall, this is fairly average – nothing to go crazy about, but also good enough for a second time. Price below includes cheese and bacon added for $0.99 each.

        Morgan’s Bistro – Angus Burger

        CIMG0073CIMG0075

        Well, I decided to spend the day in Harrison Hot Springs and when I was hungry, I walked by this nice little restaurant. Of course, I had to try their burger ! I had their Angus Burger, which has tomato, lettuce, pickles, cheddar, bacon, caramelized onions and a chipotle mayo. I asked for fresh avocado and the server said, sure if we have it. I can tell you now, that they didn’t have it or they forgot. Anyways, the burger was very good, nice and juicy. I thought it tasted great; however, I wasn’t impressed with the amount of butter slathered on the bread – I actually didn’t finish the bread, because it was so greasy ! If I was to make further recommendations, I would say use romaine lettuce and one extra strip of bacon. Otherwise, this was an outstanding burger. If I had it again (which I would), I would just asked for an un-buttered bun.

          ABC Country Restaurant – Swiss, Bacon & Avocado Burger

          ABC BurgerCIMG0070

          Someone suggested to me that I try out one of ABC’s new burgers. They seem to be promoting their burgers quite a bit in the media. So, today, I looked over their selection of burgers and decided on the Swiss, Bacon & Avocado Burger, but I asked for cheddar instead of swiss. This burger is described as “A grilled soft pretzel bun, burger sauce, beef patty, Canadian natural Swiss cheese, two slices of grilled smoked bacon, and fresh avocado” It also has tomato, romaine lettuce and a mayo/relish sauce. The burger patty is flame grilled, so it has that great flavour, that you can’t get from the flat top. The burger was presented very nicely and tasted pretty good. Even though the patty was flame-grilled, it was kinda of small. I would have liked to have seen a larger patty. Overall, this is a pretty good burger, especially considering it is from a family restaurant.

            Bridges Restaurant – Bridges Classic Burger

            Bridges Restaurant burgerBridges Restaurant

            After a nice kayaking adventure in False Creek, we decided to go to Bridges Restaurant. I had the “Bridges Classic Burger”, which is described simply as “cheddar cheese, bacon, fries” I asked for fresh avocado, but unfortunately, they only had guacamole. At this price ($17.00) I was expecting something over the top. When the burger came, it looked fine – It was presented in a closed fashion and had tomato, iceberg lettuce, white onions and a mystery sauce that looked like it was splatted on the top half of the bun – it looked like 1000 Island, but had a spicy kick to it – actually, it wasn’t too bad. Overall the burger was quite tasty, but the patty was nothing special. At this price, you must go with a prime rib patty or something special. Also, I’m tired of ordering fairly expensive burgers served with iceberg lettuce – I feel that premium burgers should have better lettuce, such as romaine. I think, at this location, you’re paying extra just for the scenery.

              Romer’s Burger Bar – Standard Burger with Bacon and Cheese

              RomersCIMG0417

              There’s a nice little burger joint in Kitsilano and its called Romers. Romers is a cozy restaurant with nice ambience and its located on busy 4th Avenue, one block west of Burrard Street. Today, I had the Standard burger which is described as “All-natural beef, vine-ripened tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, onion, pickles, R sauce” The R sauce is similar to 1000 Island dressing. I asked for this burger with bacon and cheese and avocado – Unfortunately, they forgot the avocado ! The R sauce didn’t do too much for me; I would prefer a more bolder taste. The bacon was curly and dry – I want my bacon flat and glistening !! The bun was pretty good – it held together fine and tasted okay. The patty was decent – not a whole lot of flavour. Overall, the burger was just okay in my opinion – nothing to write home about. One thing I would like to say is that the servers were very nice and the decor in the restaurant is nice. They have some pretty nifty burger concoctions on their website, so if any of those strike your fancy, check it out – It just may be YOUR favourite burger !

                Mr. Mikes – Bacon MikeBurger

                Mr. MikesMr Mikes Chilliwack #9976

                Mr. Mikes was the place to go tonight. They were promoting their burger at a local event (I didnt try it there), so I decided to try it in the restaurant. I had the Bacon Mikeburger. Mikeburgers are described as: “grilled over an open flame, served on our famous toasted garlic French loaf with Mikes special sauce and fries. All dressed or straight up – it’s the burger that won the west” The burger tasted pretty good; however, look at the size of those onions !! – I took them off – I think they would have ruined the flavour of the burger. I didn’t find that the special sauce did much for the burger – just not the right flavour for me. And the french loaf that’s its served on is unique, but a little too much bread for me. Overall the taste was alright, but I’m not crazy about this burger.

                  Wendy’s – Double Cheese Burger

                  Wendy'swendys_dc

                  Today, I decided to have one of Wendy’s old fashioned burgers – the Double Cheese to be exact. I added bacon for an extra $0.90. It comes with two 1/4 pound patties, processed cheese, iceberg lettuce, onions, tomato and pickles. For a fast food burger it was just fine – it satisfied my temporary grease and salt cravings (I haven’t had a burger in 3 weeks !!). But this burger does not compare with most restaurant burgers, and specialty burger joints.

                    White Spot – Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger

                    White spot burgerwhitespot

                    I’ve been to White Spot many times, and now I have finally had a burger from their “bigger burger” selection. I had the Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger, which is described as a 6 oz., 100% pure beef patty with hickory smoked bacon, aged cheddar cheese, lettuce & tomato with the famous Triple “O” sauce. I asked them to be easy on the sauce. The burger came closed, looked really nice and had a plain jane bun, but that’s fine with me. The burger wasn’t overly greasy, but still had some great flavour. The bacon was done perfectly – not over cooked or burnt as sometimes happens. Overall, I was quite satisfied with this burger.
