We were back in Penticton and visited this past weekend. I want to preface this review with the fact that we are terrible at raising food issues with the staff at the time. Our burger patties were dry and over cooked and the burgers were very salty. The fries were also very salty. Maybe no salt or low salt would... More

had gluten free bun with bison. Burger was very dry and didn't have much sauce on it. Bun was dry. The bison patty was tasty though.

Heard great things about the place, went while traveling through Penticton and would say average at best. Burger was dry and they were out of there house burger 55 bun and it wasn't busy and just the beginning of lunch. Not overally impressed not a must stop at if passing through again.

Chris and his team had been slaving away for a few years in that shoebox sized building, steaming hot in the summer, mildly comfortable (due to the big, hot grill) in the winter, that gained them a reputation of great, who-thought-of-putting-this-in-a-burger burger joint and stellar service. Sure you had to wait. But you knew that what you were going to... More

This place was just ok, and for the price it was way too much to eat here. I can see how this place appeals to people, but the burgers are just average and overpriced.

If you like spending $17 for a burger and small fries, waiting one hour in a loud, busy place, only to receive a burnt price of crap-then this is the place for you!! Don't bother! Gross, burned, dry, flavorless. We ordered the special of the day. It was not "special". Got a refund and left hungry.

Have eaten Burger 55's burgers many times but this is my first visit to their new larger setup right beside to where they used to be. I like the feel of the place, the "street food" vibe has been maintained and there is lots of room to sit and eat, I really like the wide openness of the space seems... More

Was hoping for something special. You choose your burger or a few of the predesigned choices. So, that said the patty is fairly common, but has a nice flavor. The rootbeer is not worth the big ticket price. It's locally brewed and has a unique cinnamon flavor. Didn't go over well with my kids. For $3 a bottle us exist... More
