group of 10 - 2 burgers burnt - not just charred - and one didn't get the avocado for which we paid $.75

We had heard a lot about this place so tried it. Burger was good but we expected more. We will try again next year . Atmosphere is relaxed and fun.

We have eaten at Burger 55 many times at their old location, and were always happy with our meals. Today we took our family for burgers and were very disappointed. The meat was dry and rather charred, so we had to send one back and the fries were cold and over cooked, again resulting in us taking them back. The... More

You can build your own burger - whatever topping you like (some were additional cost). Meat was juicy and fat - toppings generous and fresh. Ate it with a lovely cold draft on tap. Very satisfying.

I was attracted by them being featured on "You gotta eat here" and there's no doubt that it's been huge for their business. There's no table service at all. You pick up a checklist type board, check off your wants, hand it to the cashier and come get your burger when called. There's a very helpful sign when you arrive... More

I researched places to eat before we went to Penticton and this place came up. Lots of hype, place was cool, ordering process was interesting. You basically grab a clipboard with a checklist and mark off everything you want on your burger. Lots of choices, the burger itself was nothing to write home about. Just average, I was actually a...

We've been to Burger 55 three times since they opened to check out supposed deals and have left every time empty handed as we just can't swallow being screwed over with such exorbitantly high prices for a burger & fries. I've commented to them multiple times on Facebook with no reply hence the "poor" service rating. They seem to be... More

Really neat burger joint located in a renovated garage off the main street. If you have trouble making decisions this could get complicated for you, but no worries they have some burger options pre-planned for you. I had the "diner burger" because I was not prepared for the amount of choices but was very happy with my choice! A lunch... More

We go every summer. Everyone likes the build your own burger. Some people claim its expensive. Burgers shakes and rings for four was around $70, which is up there but better than a $24 downtown Calgary restaurant burger and 10x better than a fast food restaurant.

Prompted by the Food Network show....You Gotta Eat Here", we decided to stop by and we were not disappointed. If you like Fatburger, than you will love this place. Awesome burgers with homemade fries...both personally tailored by you. I must stop while in Penticton.
