Bit pricey for just sandwichs and soup. But its worth for 1st timer. 17$ for soup and sandwich isn't the cheapest meal. I had the crab bisque anddos diabalo. Brie foundue was good

I'm not sure how to categorize this restaurant but it has good food. We were there when it opened at 11:00 AM for brunch. We started on the patio but for us - mostly seniors- the traffic was too noisy for easy conversation. After they moved us indoors it was much better but at times still a distraction. Although we...

As a regular of this Burgoo and its other Vancouver locations, I have to admit this Main St location is my favorite. Excellent location, easy parking, large patio, and the friendly service I've come to expect. Everyone will tell you to wait the 25 minutes for the custom made to order mac'ncheese. And they are right. You just gotta have... More

Nice little spot. Offer a wide range of options, all looked good. I had the brie fondue which was served with bread, apple and grapes and a kale and quinoa salad. The fondue was delicious! Could almost drink it. The apple and grapes I was hesitant about with cheese, I've never had that combo before but it was delicious. The... More

When in Vancouver visiting Kissing Crows Bicycles on Main Street, my family always has lunch at Burgoo. Known for its tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, I always order Burgoo, a stew made from slow cooked lamb, smoked ham and beef with okra, lima beans, corn, tomato, with a dash of molasses. The homemade biscuits are the accompaniment. Thick, tasty,... More

The food here is well prepared and I would recommend the grilled cheese which has cheese not only inside it, but outside it. The waitstaff are friendly without being intrusive and the atmosphere is very relaxing.

Now contrasting my Torafuku experience was the very easy welcoming service at Burgoo. In the past I've had some pretty uneven receptions here but their staff was uniformly great on this occasion and their food awesome. Love their grilled cheese and tomato soup. My son's raved on his crab bisque. What's it take to enjoy a meal out? Food is... More

Neighborhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
