Burgoo never fails to impress. Don't know where to start...from macaroni & cheese to jambalaya, from soups and salads to all the sandwiches....everything is amazing.

I have no idea why I never heard of Burgoo - I love comfort food! I went with some colleagues for lunch and fell in love immediately. Great menu with a good selection of soups, salads and sandwiches as well as some other classic comfort food. The first time I went I had the feature soup which was a seafood... More

Love this place, the menu is listed by origin, I guess that's how to describe it. Loved the Guacamole appetizer and the olives with drinks, lotsa cooklolives in there. I had the Pot Pie and it was so good, had a bite of the Cuban Sandwich and it was very tasty indeed, I would get that next time. I also... More

They have an amazing menu. One of my favourites is the Grilled cheese. It is the best I have ever tasted and I understand they are very well know for that. Their soups are amazing as well. My favourite is the Chicken and Corn soup. You have to try this restaurant.

I eat at Burgoo every single time I visit Vancouver. Such amazing food options for all tastes! The mushroom soup is to die for. Last time I ate two full bowls in one sitting. Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for extremely tasty comfort food.

This is my second review of the Burgoo Bistro restaurants. I've been to all of the Vancouver locations and overall I'm a fan. The food is very good and definitely comfort food-style. The beer choice is also decent. I've more recently become a fan of the breakfasts as well. My only issue comes down to pricing. There is no way... More

Our quest for the best nachos and beer in Vancouver took us to Burgoo's on 4'th today. We sampled the seasonal ale and ordered a plate of chicken nachos. The nachos are mixed with the chicken, which won't work for vegetarians, but we went for it anyway. What arrived was a little cast iron skillet of chicken nachos, just enough... More

We visited on a busy Saturday evening, but they soon found us a table for 5. The strawberry lemonade was refreshing and full of flavour. The biscuits were amazing and I would have just eaten those they were so good. The butter chicken was not as authentic as it should have been but was still good. Despite it being very... More

The atmosphere was nice, popped in with no reservations on a Saturday late afternoon and they seated six of us right away. Service was good throughout, we were pretty slow to order and they kept coming back, our drinks and food came pretty quickly. Food was mostly good (my daughter didn't like the mac & more, a little dry), but... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
