Red Robin has some burgers to boot, I'm sick and tired of Montana's popping up in Calgary. Enough of the redneck schtick, give me some damn burgers.

There's 4 Red Robin's in Edmonton for christ sakes, you think this city would have at least one.

But no, Montana's and Swiss Chalet are upper class in this joint.

Whenever I'm in Vancouver, I always hit up Red Robin for a burger...maybe I should try some of the options on this board next time I hit up there.

Just got one from the Granville Island Market....

Not bad. Very fresh, very well seasoned. Not a bad size for the price at all.

The real draw to this place though has to be the fries. They are the first fries i've had that have tasted fine without any ketchup or dip.

Agreed, Tomahawk is unbelievable. Also I don't think people realize Save-On Meats on East Hastings has a Deli in the back that makes in my opinion, one of the best burgers in town.

Worth trying

Yeah honestly between Market Grille and Cactus Club Mini-Burgers which are both within 15 minutes from me, i'm not sure why i'd go anywhere else.

Unless Moderne is like amazing compared to Market Grille.

Another Vancouver classic. Been there forever, and is not going to be there much longer.

Pictures of fast food burgers will excite you. They aren't actually food but you can admire them.

Vera's on Davie is the best Vera's I've been too and is consistently an excellent burger. Their fries aren't great though.

Because $12 for 3 miniburgers that aren't even close to a meal is a rip off? They do taste good though.

Well it's not like everything else on the Cactus club menu is reasonable pricing.

Speaking of which. I haven't had an Earls burger in a LONG time. Anyone have any info on that?

One thing I wish though was that Market Grille had a double burger. Fries are the best though, so i'm definitely going back whenever I can.

Its a bit overpriced for sure. But they are so damn good. Their relish is amazing.

I asked for it once and they delivered. Although I did used to work down there and they knew me pretty well.

This thread needs to be stickied so I can find it when I go back to Vancouver.
