This restaurant is different, that what makes it good. The Fondue is excellent, good for sharing, melt in you mouth, sinfully delicious goodness. The rest of the menu has dishes from around the world, I love them all. There something for every taste.

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.

Lovely little restaurant with a warm friendly ambience. Became our favorite during out nine day stay in Lonsdale. Ate there 3 times and had a great taste experience each time for a good price.
