Burger Heaven, New Westminster, BC Canada

The vine covered patio in the front speaks volumes. I’m fairly certain that in a previous incarnation the building that houses Burger Heaven used to be a tacky Greek Restaurant. The restaurant can be comfortably filled under “Dive” and that’s not necessarily a bad thing, just ask my good friend Guy Fieri of Food Networks, “Dinners Drive-ins and Dives”. The place is a throw back, pre 50’s wooden construction, dingy, dark interior. The walls are plastered with snapshots of clientele enjoying their burgers. Newspaper reviews and reward certificates also compete for wall space. I have to agree with the awards, Burger Heaven makes a pretty dam good burger, although I stayed away for the 10 stacker, something called Ernie’s Mile High, this baby has it all!! Two and a half pounds of meat, 8 patties high topped with THE WORKS! Cheddar, mozzarella, mushrooms, bacon and our special sauce.

I had the BBQ Bacon Cheese Burger a solid 8/10. Everything in this burger works together to a better than the sum of its parts type of thing. The soft white Keizer bun was supremely good and the BBQ sauce added a smoky sweet something something. The weakest link in the burger was the patty itself, thin and overcooked. Everything else stepped up to the plate and made up for the patty but just imagine if the patty was a perfectly grilled pink in the middle 8 plus ounces of triple A certified Canadian beef! This is just my humble advice, free of charge. Maybe I should become a burger consultant, hmm.

This little burger dive, at the foot of 10th St in New Westminster, makes a really good burger, definitely check them out.
