We were staying a block away. We tried English pub but they had a sign saying "No Minors" so we left. We stumbled upon Big Wheel Burger. Burgers were great, Cajun fries were good if you like spices. Good service. Not big inside and nothing...More

A great burger joint in Cook Street Village. We've dined here a number of times and it is consistently good - burgers, fries and shakes all delicious. Keep an eye out for their specials, some interesting combos pop up!

We ate here because we found ourselves in the area with no other choices along our foot journey. But it was busy and we decided why not. The burgers were very good and the fries were excellent! The place is pretty cramped and very noisy,...More

Burgers and fries were good. Place is small and rather loud. You place your order and pick it up from a window. Seems to be a popular place for locals...several families with young children...hence more noise and food spilled etc. Would take food out if...More

I've visited a lot of burger places around the country and this is one of the best. They have their classics plus always offer something new to try if you feel like something different. Feeling good about everything being compostable is nice bonus too.

Big wheel is possibly my favorite burger spot on the island due to their reasonable prices, environmental awareness (everything from the drink containers to burger wrappers can be composted) and friendly atmosphere. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quick...More

I've been to both Big Wheel Burger locations here in Victoria. Both are equal in very good hamburgers. They grind their beef fresh daily. The bun is perfect too. I always go for the double with no cheese. I want the taste and you don't...More

Had a fabulous burger fresh off the grill! These are made with fresh meat and cooked just right. Try either the Cajun or garlic fries on the side.

It is a great simple burger with that old school feel. It makes you feel like you should be on a date in a drive in.

Big Wheel Burger was founded on the idea that FAST food didn’t have to mean JUNK food. We have taken inspiration from the classic American cheeseburger and re-created it using quality, fresh ingredients. Our burgers are ground in-house every day using hormone-free, range-fed, AAA beef, brought to you with fast, friendly service. We source locally from Island Farms, local breweries & Island Bakery. Big Wheel Burger is quintessential local eating. We’ve put thought into every step, from what we serve our customers, to how we run our shops (we have three locations in Victoria) and how we impact the environment and local communities. Already a low carbon operation, Big Wheel Burger is proud to be Canada’s first carbon neutral fast food restaurant, having chosen to offset our remaining emissions!
