Fatburger is an American burger franchise that’s been around since 1952. They came to Vancouver in 2005. It now has over 10 locations in BC alone.
So what makes these burgers so tasty?
For one, they’re cooked to order from fresh, never frozen beef. The patties are a nice size too, and juicy. They don’t call it Fatburger for nothing – the burgers are well, fat. Their soft drinks are refillable and so is their lemonade, which is very good.
They serve milkshakes, fries and onion rings, the place has a nice diner feel to it. They also have a liquor license, so you can have a beer with your burger. This isn’t gourmet burgers. This isn’t a fancy burger joint. It’s simply fast food done right. And that’s part of their charm – there’s nothing pretentious about the place. The restaurant has booth seating and counter service. They bring your food to you once you’ve ordered.
Their burgers range in size from S (baby fat) to XXXL (triple king). For me, I find the M (fat burger) is more than enough! Most burgers come with lettuce, tomato, relish, mustard, and ketchup. For a bit extra you can add bacon, cheese, chili and even an egg. I never understood the egg on a burger thing, but hey, it’s good to have options! A regular burger combo (burger, fries and a soft drink) will set you back about $10. It’s not dirt cheap, but it’s definitely better quality than regular fast food joints.
I like the Dunsmuir location because it’s so close to Rogers Arena. The place is packed every game day with Canucks fans. Great place to grab a quick snack before the game.
