Tomahawk Barbeque, North Vancouver, BC. Canada

From the Menu:
We only buy and serve 100% premium certified ORGANIC ground beef from The Blue Goose Cattle Company! That means they ensure:
• No growth-hormones or antibiotics are ever administered to the herd.

• The animals are free to range and graze on organic pastures.

• The cattle receive a finishing feed of 100% organically grown grains.

I had the SKOOKUM CHIEF BURGER, Onions, lettuce, organic ground beef patty, Yukon bacon, egg, aged cheddar cheese, wiener, tomato, and Tomahawk special sauce. Pretty much everything and the kitchen sink.

I did not enjoy this burger. Very disappointing. I had high hopes for this place, winner of top burger in North Vancouver by the North Shore New Readers many years running. What do they see that I don’t?

The patty (kudo’s on the premium certified organic beef) was tiny, burnt and tasteless. It got totally lost in al the other stuff. I’m not against other stuff and huge packed burgers but the patty has to come through. Not be overpowered by everything else between the buns. I can still taste the weiner. Not necessarily a bad thing except that I had a hamburger and not a hotdog. Was there cheese in my burger? I don’t remember. I should not be asking myself these questions. It is with much disappointment that I give the Skookum Chief burger a 5.5/10. And its only this high because they have gone out of their way getting the good organic beef.
The Tomahawk does not serve liquor. Enjoy the art shot of the pop.

  1. Didn't you order the patty medium rare?

  2. i don't remember it's been so long ago. So many good reviews for this place and i didn't like it.
    I'm going to have to go back for a re-do soon.
