Wolfgang Burger Fridays – The Burger Blog

Every Friday at 12 noon the office staff at Wolfgang is meeting at a specified burger joint to evaluate a burger with cheese. The evaluation is easy. On a rating of 1 to 10, how would you rate the burger? We will be reporting our findings at You can checkout the rules on the “Rules Page” of the Blog. You can join us at any Wolfgang Burger Friday and make your opinion count!

First up on our burger adventure was Burgers Etc. A relatively new burger joint on Hastings in Burnaby with a burger voted “Best Burger in the Lower Mainland” by CTV news.

As it was our first place we probably made a few mistakes (no problem with going back to re-assess at a later date), notably showing up at lunch time trying to find seats for 7 people all in one place. As it was a fairly small place we had to split the group up. That being said I think we were pretty consistent for being seated at different tables. No group-thing phenomenon (or double group-think…hmm…)

We all ordered the Chargrilled Burger with cheddar cheese. Overall it was a good burger and everyone agreed on that. I tend to be a harsh critic so my rankings will consistently be lower than the average – good thing we’re not judging figure skating and throwing out the top and bottom marks or mine would probably never count. If I am asked to rank a burger 10 will have to be the BEST burger I have EVER eaten and a 5 would be an average good burger. (I’ll defend my ranking, I think there should be a distinct difference between each number, not all burgers can get 7’s!)

Some of the good feedback on the burger:
Good Bun, the proportions were good, size of the meat to bun ratio was good, the vegetables were crisp, and it had a good char on it.

Some of the bad feedback on the burger:
Not a great bun, the onion was overly powerful, needed more grease or a greasy aspect, the burger was too flat and wide (needed to be thicker and smaller), the tomatoes were tasteless and the meat was really nothing more than just meat (ie: not really seasoned in any way, not spicy or spiced)

So some conflicting reviews. Basically it was a pretty good burger. Had I been allowed to SMOTHER it with onions and mushrooms and cheese it would probably have received a higher rating from me.

So overall, with all 7 of us there, Burgers Etc. got a 7.14/10 rating from us. Pretty darn good burger.

And I know were not rating sides here but the Macaroni salad was pretty awesome.
