I saw an ad for this place in our local newspaper, the Burnaby Now, about their burger eating contest for charity, so I thought I'd stop in as I live in the neighbourhood. I never knew that they were even there! I guess I never have reason to go west of Gilmore (until now). To my surprise, they've been there for almost 3 years now. The place smelled sooooo yummy when we walked in.
Their name describes it all - Burgers Etc. The "Etc." being their BBQ. While I was deciding what to order, I saw all the different plates of food go out to the other tables and it all looked good. The burgers are humungus! They had all types of meat - brisket, pulled pork, chicken, ribs, sausage, wings ... I couldn't decide. Apparently, they are best known for their burgers, so I went with that and my 3 friends went with the beef dip, the chicken burger and the brisket sandwich. We also ordered the pulled pork sandwich to round out the taste-testing frenzy.
If you can believe it, there wasn't one clear winner. Everybody had their own favorite (mine being the beef dip - I wish I had ordered one for myself! - next time). We all agreed that the burger and pulled pork were on the top of the list though.
As for others that diss this place and compare it to other BBQ restaurants - stop being such haters. These people make great food, and if they don't make it EXACTLY like the others - good for them - they`re not following the rest. Obviously, they`re doing their own thing and it`s working for them. Keep it up Burgers Etc., I like everything that you serve. We`ll all be back again (and again!)
