Gillnetter Pub – Pitt Burger

007I had a groupon for this pub so I decided to go out today to try their burger. When it came, I  asked, “who stabbed my burger” But thee knife if just there to hold everything together. The burger is described as “6oz charbroiled prime rib patty, topped with cheddar cheese & bacon, served with  mayo and our special sauce”
When I took my first bite, I could tell immediately that it was was cooked over a flame — I love that flavour. The burger was big and tasted great. I’d go back. The burger cost $11.95, so it sneaks in the cheapest category. !

Stackhouse Burger Bar – Stackhouse Burger

Stackhouse BurgerIMG_5095

I had some extra time for lunch today, so I decided to try Stackhouse Burger Bar. I heard it was getting some good reviews, so I just had to try it. I had the Stackhouse Burger, which is described as “6.5 oz local prime rib patty with pancetta, portabellini, Guinness cheddar, chipotle aioli and butter lettuce served on a brioche bun” I had their lunch special (from 11-3 pm) – the burger only cost $10 and it comes with fries or salad. This burger delivered on every level – it was cooked and seasoned perfectly, the pancetta was great and the bun was great. It just tasted great ! Not many places serve prime rib burgers, so this was a treat. They also have a Kobe burger that I must try !! Even at the full price of $15 this burger is a big winner, but at $10 it is out of this world – one of the best values in the city ! I’ll be back for sure !

Red Robin – Guacamole Bacon Burger

Red RobinIMG_4251

I’ve been to Red Robin many times, but not since I started this blog. They advertise as Canada’s Gourmet Burger Restaurant. T o tell you the truth, I’ve never had a bad burger here – They just know how to make a good burger. This time was no exception. I had the Guacamole Bacon Burger, which is described as having: zesty guacamole and thick sliced applewood smoked bacon topped with melted Swiss cheese, red onions, lettuce, tomatoes & mayo. Not much to say here – The burger was cooked fast, tasted great and I’ll come back ! The price was around $11.50 before tax.

Cannibal Cafe – American Classic Burger

Cannibal Cafe

There’s a new burger joint on Commercial Drive (1818) and its name is the Cannibal Cafe and they serve beef, not human, so its safe. I had their American Classic Burger, which comprises of a 6 oz house-made burger (or 2-3 oz patties if you prefer), with American cheese (processed), tomato, onion, iceberg lettuce, house ketchup, stone-ground mustard and mayo. I substituted for real cheddar cheese and added bacon and avocado for an extra $1 each. NOTE, with the additions, the price goes into the next category. As the meat is ground in house, you have the option to have it done to your preference – I had mine done medium – In retrospect, I should have have it med well, as I didn’t really like the blood dripping in the bun. Overall, the burger was very good, perfectly cooked and well presented. Bottom line… sure, I’d go back here again !

Five Guys Burgers and Fries – Bacon Cheese Burger

Five Guys BurgerFive Guys

Ive been wanting to try this place out for a while now. They opened up a restaurant in Freemont Village in Port Coquitlam so I decided to take the plunge. When entering the restaurant, someone yells “DOOR”. You then have the option of a hamburger, cheeseburger or bacon cheeseburger and there are about 15 free toppings to choose from. The burger was great – very tasty – not too greasy. I will definitely be going back here !

And, from now on, I won’t be ranking my burgers – I’ll just say whether I’ll go back or not.

Tomahawk Restaurant – Chief Dominic Charlie Burger

Tomahawk BurgerTomahawk Restaurant

After watching some Vancouver Open Tennis Action up at Hollyburn, I decided to try this place, which has been on the radar for some time. They have a wide selection of burgers on their menu and I decided to go for the Chief Dominic Charlie Burger, which is described as “Lettuce, organic ground beef patty, grilled Yukon-style bacon, aged cheddar cheese, tomato and Tomahawk special sauce. I wasn’t too impressed with the burger – the taste just wasn’t there for me. It didn’t seem like the commanding burger the description set it out to be – just seemed kind of small, not much to it. The special sauce wasn’t anything special. Bottom line is I wouldn’t go back. I guess in my haste, I forgot to remember the price, so I don’t have that info !

Splitz – Legendary Splitz Burger – Double Stacker

Double Stacker Burgersplitz10-003-1024x682

Was referred to this place by another hamburger joint. Must say, I was hungry and it was a long time since I had a burger, so I had their double stacker – that’s 2/3 pound – that’s 10 2/3 ounces !! This burger was great – they use shredded cheese like another place I’ve been to and it really brings out the cheese flavour – makes sense – more surface area, more flavour. I couldn’t believe I ate the whole thing – it was really good. I wasn’t hungry for another 10 hours ! I would go back here any day and recommend it for anyone who likes burgers. I can’t remember the price for the burger alone, but with the extra cost for cheese, bacon, fries and a drink, the whole thing cost $16.74 – Can’t compare this with my other prices listed, as this was a double stacker and came with fries and a drink – The cost before all the extras is just in line with most burger joints. The photo doesn’t give the burger justice – must have had bad lighting !

Burger55 – Classic Beef Burger

Burger 55 BurgerBurger 55

Well, I had a recent trip to the great town of Penticton and before going I researched to find a great burger place. What I came up with was Burger55. This little restaurant, which has been in business for about two years, delivers some serious food. To say the least, I was not disappointed. Upon entry, you grab a clipboard and design your own burger. I had mine with an Angus Burger, tomato, lettuce, pickle, banana peppers, Canadian Back Bacon, aged cheddar cheese, the 55 Signature spread all on a cracked wheat bun. The burger was cooked to order and all the ingredients were fresh. Oh my gawd – I sunk my teeth into this beauty and enjoyed every bite – it tasted so good. I can’t wait to come back ! This burger would stand up to almost anything I’ve had before.

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.

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


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 !
