Don't let the cheap-looking atmosphere stop you from enjoying the excellent food at the Burger Inn. Located on fashionable Fourth Street, its colorful murals and the smell of vinegar mixed with grilled beef lure diners in to sample the incredible burgers. This restaurant uses only premium meat—bison, turkey, ostrich and beef—in order to make a superior burger. Every burger is grilled, then garnished with fresh lettuce, onion and tomato and served on a thick bun. This down-home restaurant mainly does take-out, but there are a half-dozen tables inside for diners who don't want to eat on the run. A burger costs anywhere from CAD 2-7, depending on the type and quality of burger.
The place is kinda tacky but that sort of builds on the whole middle street burger stall atmosphere. I actually brought the burger and ate it sitting on the porch outside and it was fantastic!
Recommended for anyone who wants to dearly get away form the typical dark-room heavy-tipped restaurants and wants to enjoy the actual food in the wildest possible manner imaginable!!!
p.s. you should be comfortable with significantly large chunks of your burger rolling down your shirt :D
I have not been to burger inn for over a year now. Last time I was there the cook dropped my burger on the floor and put it back on the grill. I know because I saw him do it. I was a very loyal customer and he new me .. I can't believe he would do that. Any wya I asked him if he did drop it and he said no. When I told him I saw him he asked if he could make me a new burger. I think he should have done that in the first place.
Any way I hope your experiance is better than mine
After hearing through the grapevine that Burger Inn was selling Kobe Beef burgers, I just had to try it out.
Sure, paying $15 for a burger seemed outrageous and sure, turning Kobe beef into a burger made as much sense as an angus beef meatball but what the heck, it was Kobe beef right ?
So how was it ? It was ok. It was like eating a tender burger. Not much in terms of flavour but one can only expect so much from a frozen patty. The order taker recommended that I eat the burger with no condiments and although that made sense (since I didn't want to pay $15+ to taste ketchup or mustard), it made the burger experience kind of boring.
Will I go back ? Well, one thing is for sure. I won't be going back for the kobe burger alone. I suppose I could return for just a "regular" burger but then again, there are dozens of other places I could go for a regular burer... like Pete's Drive Inn.
