Quality Dining/Drinking!

Great lunch, with good vegetarian options and a good, reasonably priced drink menu, which unfortunately I didn't have time to fully enjoy!

We had lunch at Burgoo after walking down to the market at Lonsdale Quay. The soup and salad combination is a bargain, with plenty of variation on the menu, a lot of healthy options if that's your thing and excellent, fresh ingredients. There's not much point in writing any more. Go!

Two visits to Burgoo produced two great meals. The service was responsive and the food was excellent. Sandwiches and salads as well as Bistro entrees plus yummy desserts were the fare for us and it worked. Ambience is one of relaxed wood with both tables near the front and booths at the back. Good beer selection. I would recommend this... More

I don't give a 5 often, and we were fully prepared to come back, which we rarely do on vacay. First, the food: I couldn't have been happier with my Kentucky Burgoo (the state dish of Kentucky, I've since learned, based on BBQ and stew). So different, so many ingredients, so darned tasty. The Wife had the salmon salad -... More

Burgoo is on my list of must do's when I happen to be in North Vancouver. I love their comfort food. Never disappointed!

My wife and I stopped in for a quick meal after arriving in North Van. I had mushroom soup and salad, and she had the avocado starter. Service was good, and the salad was good. Her starter was just okay and my soup was a bit on the runny side. Overall, nothing stands out, but reasonable in price.

I wouldn't even call it fondue. It's more of a heavy on the cream white sauce with lumps. The waitress assured us the lumps were cheese but they didn't taste of cheese. Not much favour, didn't taste like cheese or wine just a lot of heavy cream. I think they have found that cream is cheaper than cheese or wine.

Ate here twice on a recent trip. Read about their fondue and it lived up to the hype. The soups were incredible, accompanied by the wonderful grilled cheese. Cheerful friendly staff.

Honestly, just once I'd be interested in something not being perfect to contrast. The drinks, atmosphere and food always exceed our expectations. There's a reason we go back often. I'd recommend... well everything. But the Burgoo with biscuits is still my favourite. Pair it with bourbon, or an Old Fashion and you can't go wrong. Only complaint is we are... More

I enjoy Burgoo's ambiance but I never seem to steer away from their grilled cheese sandwich. It is rich and gooey but also so good. Whether it is lunch or dinner, I find it is a good busy place.
