You may have read my post on Re:Grub burger bar here, but at that time I hadn’t actually tried the food. I knew about it’s mission and I was excited…but for what, I wasn’t yet sure.
Since then, I’ve attended and got down to business. And Cole – well, he can’t stay away.
We met up after work one evening and headed in to check it out. Picking up a menu, we looked through the ten or so options, debating over which ones we should choose first. During this search, we never once said – ew, that doesn’t sound good…
In the end, we settled on a batch of house-cooked fries, the Eureka burger, and the Clubhouse. I wasn’t totally feeling like a burger, so the option to have a turkey burger really seemed to excite me at the moment.
We grabbed a spot in the sun and sipped on our cool orange cream soda while we waited for our orders.
House made brioche buns that were incredibly soft. Lean house-ground meat patties dripping with juice. Fresh vegetables that crunch when you take a bite. And cheese – warm and melting down the sides.
These guys require two hands.
The patties are incredibly fresh and tender. You can really tell that the ingredients are local and house made. Cole has been telling everyone that they’re the best burgers in town – and that’s saying something.
We didn’t pick a milkshake this time, but I have a feeling the peanut butter or the nanaimo bar are going to become quick faves.
The experience was great and the service was friendly. The prices are a little high (about $14 for a burger, $3 for a regular fry) but honestly, what do you expect when everything is made in-house. Besides, a lot of toppings that would normally cost you extra (fried onions, guac, avocado, cheese, bacon) are already included. In my mind, the burgers are worth the price – and honestly, big enough for two – with a big batch of fries on the side.
These burgers are works of art and definitely truly fit the category of gourmet. Pop on by and support the local business. It’s tucked in on 11th Ave – perfect for a downtown working lunch. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather spend another $3 here then end up with some crappy food court lunch that leaves me hungry an hour later.
Hit it up and let me know what you think? Best burger in town?
