Home of the legendary Pit Night on Wednesdays, The Pit continues to be the number one bar on campus and feature student friendly pricing.
Food: I always order the plain hamburger. Even though it just comes with mayo and some special sauce, it's AMAZING. I don't know what they put in it, but the patty is just amazingly flavourful and juicy.
Service: Quick. They give you a receipt with a number on it, and call you when your burger is up. Usually takes no more than 5 minutes at most.
Value: The plain hamburger is $3. It's decent.
Ambiance: It's the SUB...
I went to UBC in the mid-80s, and had food and beer at The Pit on occasion. I liked it. I just went back there recently, more than 25 years later. Holy Shyte, it's the same! How cool. Same food (more or less), a college-age kid working the grill and fryer - which is in exactly the same place, by the way - same low-priced beer, same atmosphere. What a nostalgic wallop, in a totally good way. If you would like to try a burger, fries, and a beer in an Vancouver time warp institution, come here. And be sure to - before or after - explore the UBC campus while you're here...there's a lot to do and see.
I used to go here all the time when I was at UBC. Now I only get around there once and a while. The prices havent changed much in 15 years !
Still, the burger of the day and fries is $4.95. Can't beat that ! And the fries are hot and tasty.
Its very dark and at times can be noisy, but still, this is a great place for a burger !
This burger bar ... is a big grill kitchen behind a small counter service window.
