Los Compadres4280 Hastings, Burnaby
¬°Gran valor!
Submitted Thursday, March 4, 2010 - 2:35pm [Dine in]

Gigantic, delicious burrito for nine dollars. Excellent value.

Make no mistake, this is a no-frills, no-strings kind of joint. The guy behind the counter is covered in tattoos and the menu seems like it's in a constant state of flux (at urbanspoon.com they don't have burritos listed, in the restaurant they offer them...whatever), but the quality and price of the food can't be beat. Honestly, do yourself a favour and get takeout one day for lunch or dinner and prepare to be impressed.

Burgers Etc. BBQ House4091 Hastings St., Burnaby

Outweighs the likes of Veras (sloppy), Hamburger Mary's (jack of all trades, master of none) and Moderne Burger (spendy).

The BBQ options really set it apart from the rest. Pulled pork sandwich is on par with what you'd get at Memphis Blues, while the beef dip might be the best bang-for-your-buck going.

They've done a nice job of turning an otherwise tiny, uncomfortable space into something decent; good place to watch a game (caught the Canucks-Stars a while back) and they're starting to get a better variety of beer in there, which is always key.

Bombay Bhel4266 Hastings St., Burnaby
More quality to the Heights...
Submitted Thursday, May 8, 2008 - 5:42pm [Dine in]

The Burnaby Heights area is now home to several really solid eateries, with an emphasis on variety. Fine dining at Pear Tree, BBQ at Burgers Etc, copious amounts of Italian at Anton's...and lest we forget Bombay Bhel.

It's a very good restaurant and I'm thankful the franchise branched out of Ontario (they've got five of them back East, I believe the Burnaby location is the first one out West). Having eaten here several times, we've always had great meals, regardless of how "authentic" the food either is or isn't. If the meals taste great and the service matches, why split hairs about how authentic the recepies and preparation are? Anyways...

One of the more underrated aspects is that you can zip by a massive lineup of Anton's customers and get seated almost immediately at Bhel. This isn't to say it's not busy - every time we've gone they've been close to capacity - but the dining room is quite spacious and you don't feel like you're sitting in your neighbor's lap. All in all, a great place to eat. We'll be back for sure.
