Friendly Staff & Great Food

The staff were kind and friendly. The French onion soup and cheddar biscuits were delicious. Enjoyed having dinner outside on the patio area. The restaurant provides a warm blanket for cold night. If you're looking for comfort food, this is the location. Would recommend.

My usual is the Sunset Corn Chicken Chowder with biscuits (always have to have them), but today I tried the Butter Chicken. Very good with plenty of chunks of potatoes and chicken in a semi-thick sauce garnished with cilantro. Enough leftover for another lunch. This restaurant often has lineups, but when I'm alone I often get a seat at the... More

Small neighbourhood restaurant with really, REALLY satisfying food. Another reviewer has mentioned the baked French Onion Soup, and they're right: it's delicious and a light meal all by itself. Our whole party each ordered something different, and the whole thing degenerated into a round of "you have GOT to try a forkful of this!" The entree portions are very generous,... More

Food is good, portions are large, you don't ever feel that you are getting ripped off. Also the service is really good. The hostesses are friendly, the servers are friendly. There is one server who wasn't our server, she had an incredible laugh that had the whole restaurant amused. I haven't been there in a while, I wonder if she... More

Our last night in Vancouver included dinner and a beer at Burgoo. This small eclectic establishment offered us fine sandwiches and fresh, tasty salads. There was a fast 5 minute wait for a seat inside and we were surprised at how well the wait staff saw to our every need. Very fast and efficient service - so unexpected and appreciated.... More

Dined with a friend. Just missed the massive line up for dinner on a Tuesday so this place is popular. I had the wild salmon salad which was a but pricey for the tiny portion of salmon (was partly shredded/mixed into the greens which was not the best idea), but still enjoyed it. Friend seemed to enjoy her meal. Nice... More

Great chain. This one has a patio (don't know if they all do?). Their cherizo, cheese, pepper sandwich on chiabatta bread should be called: the OMG sandwich...insanely flavourful.

Always a line-up so we don't go often but we opted for inside, out of the sun today so no wait at all. Excellent lunches! Had the shrimp salad baguette with spinach salad and the salmon salad. Everything about it was excellent. Had to ask where they get their baguettes - perfection! Good size portions, everything fresh - and excellent... More

A cozy restaurant with great comfort food, Burgoo is one of my favorites. Multiple vegetarian options available. Small restaurant & it fills fast, so I advise arriving early or calling ahead.
