I really want a burger. That’s the article.
When it comes to burgers in Vancouver (not counting mom-and-pop shops and the like), there’s a surprising amount of options. And yes, before you wonder, chicken sandwiches count as burgers. But, there are a ton of burgers. What are the best ones in the city?
I’m more focusing on big brands like McDonald’s, Triple O’s, A&W, and the like, because it’s common around the place and it’s probably going to be the next restaurant you’ll eat at. So, why don’t we go down a little introspective tour on different burger places and my personal opinions on them because I’m hungry and I need to pick myself up from this tired world.
Let’s start with McDonald’s, a place that needs no introduction. The Big Mac or a Quarter Pounder are undeniable, offering a familiar and comforting taste that has stood the test of time. The iconic sesame seed bun, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, It’s a classic for a reason, a reliable choice but basic choice.
Then there’s Triple O’s, Vancouver’s In-And-Out, as I say. Known for its Triple “O” sauce and signature burgers, this local gem adds a touch of West Coast flavor to the traditional fast-food fare. But, it’s expensive and frankly, Triple-O’s is more higher-end than a McDouble.
And let’s not forget A&W. The use of 100% Canadian beef and commitment to quality give A&W a distinctive edge. The Teen Burger, with its classic toppings and A&W’s signature seasoning, offers a taste that’s both nostalgic and refreshingly modern. But once again, it’s expensive.
Honestly, whatever burger you choose is your choice and frankly, I am no longer hungry for a burger after writing this article. Maybe I’ll get another one later on, but there are a lot of choices for burgers in the city. Whether it be McDonald’s or A&W or Triple O’s, there’s no denying that a good burger can heal the body and the soul. Maybe not the body, but you know what I mean.
