Vancouver Cheap Eats: Top 5 burgers for under $5

By Vancity Buzz Staff | 8:31 am PST, Fri November 9, 2012 | Speak Up

They come in all shapes and sizes. Fast or slow, grilled or flat top. Single, double, and (for the very brave and hungry) triple. But no matter how you dress, mess, or caress it, there’ s no greater feeling than sinking your teeth into a big ol’ burger. Sometimes it is exactly what the taste buds ordered, and the only thing to silence that grumbling stomach of yours. While we know there are a ton of fast food joints where you can easily score some patties for a few bucks, there are some folks around town that offer up these grilled goodies with their own unique twist.

Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow have compiled a handful of Vancouverites who proudly boast these succulent burgers on their menu. The best part? It won’t cost you the farm.

Wally’s Burgers

Wally is one awesome guy. He has not one, not two, but three burgers for four dollars and under. Choose from Wally’s deluxe, the Wally, or the Meatless burger, which pairs a fried egg with the usual burger fixin’s.

Splitz Grill

Splitz

With $3.99 lentil and beef burgers served Monday to Friday from 11:30am to 4pm, veggies and carnivores will be tweeting #getsplitzed on the regular.

The Famous Warehouse

Clearly they call this place Famous for a reason. Everything on the menu is 4.95. Translation: it is Chowmenow’s mecca, heaven, and home away from home. And if you didn’t think it could get any better, this isn’t the only place that’s offering the cheap eat love. The owners have also added two more locations: The Dime and The Hastings Warehouse.

Bronco Belle Texas BBQ

Bronco Belle Texas

Naturally a place called Bronco Belle Texas BBQ located in a food court will serve up wild boar and kangaroo burgers. Hmm, not really your thing? Not to worry, you can nosh on a quarter pound burger for $4.95 at two their two locations; one in Harbour Center Downtown and the other in Brentwood Mall.

Triple O’s

Original Burger

We couldn’t compile the best burgers for under five bucks without including a Canadian institution. Forget TGIF, soon you’ll be cheering for TGIT! Every Tuesday you can order their original burger for $3.33.

How do you like to dress your buns (ahem, with a burger we mean)? Tweet us or tell us on Facebook! Better yet, get up in our grill and tell the Chow community.

    Do you know if any of these are gluten free?

    Try the WallFlower – great gluten free options (2420 Main Street). Foundation (just across the street) is another worthwhile option.
