Where to find the best burgers in Vancouver

Sep 18 2019, 9:32 am

Nothing hits the spot like a juicy, perfectly-topped, fresh-off-the-grill burger, so it’s a good thing Vancouver’s selection of this classic comfort food is absolutely out of this world.

From high-end beef patties at Hawksworth to the glorious $2.89 Wakwak Burger from our favourite Granville Street food truck, whether it’s breakfast, classic cheese, or covered in¬†bacon, Vancouver has¬†every kind of¬†burger you could¬†dream of.

Here are some of the best burgers you need to try in Vancouver.

Recently this Vancouver favourite¬†left The American, but, you can still get the goods via Uber Eats and Door Dash. We’ll definitely be ordering the 45-day aged fresh-ground beef patty topped with special sauce, lettuce, tomato, and pickles sandwiched between a bun lightly-browned with butter.

Wakwak Burger food truck

Whatever your thoughts on Wakwak, you can’t deny that the $2.85 price tag for a burger from this food truck is anything less than extraordinary. It may be simple, but the patty is juicy, the lettuce is crispy, and the bun is soft. If that’s not a recipe for a solid street burger, we don’t know what is.
