Burger mania: Hundreds line up for CaliBurger's opening day

Jun 6 2016, 11:40 pm

You may have noticed a huge line up outside 830 Thurlow Street over the weekend. That’s because Vancouver’s first CaliBurger opened its doors for business.

Burger hungry Vancouverites turned out in their droves for the In-N-Out clone’s grand opening, lining up outside (for an hour and a half at times) desperate to get their hands on one of the chain’s California-style burgers.

Drawing such an impressive crowd, CaliBurger’s line up stretched all the way down the block to Robson Street and around.

The US-based chain is best known for its fresh beef burgers (think juicy patties sandwiched between glossy buns), chicken sandwiches, hand-cut fries, and hand-spun shakes, which can be ordered virgin, spiked with bourbon, rum, or Bailey’s, and/or with a shot of Stumptown Nitro Cold Brew coffee on tap.

Let’s see..
