Stackhouse Burger Bar: Mouthwatering Burgers

Foodology October 12, 2011 Downtown, Sandwich, Three Beakers


Before AndyEatsAlot departed back to Montreal, I had dinner with him and Gmoney at Stackhouse Burger Bar. They are known for their delicious burgers! Since Andy was about to leave, it seemed fitting that we meet up and just do what we love – eat!

The interior is not too bad looking and it is filled with natural light since the whole front of the restaurant was made of glass.

All the delicious burgers come out from here! You can even look to see what the cooks are doing!

Stackhouse Burger ($15) has a 6.5 oz local prime rib patty with pancetta, portabellini, Guinness cheddar, chipotle aioli and butter lettuce served on a brioche bun.

This is probably one of the most popular burgers since it’s named after the restaurant.

Fries are russet potatoes fried and seasoned to perfection with fleur de sel, served with your choice of aioli. Fries comes with the burger or you can substitute it for something else like salad or onion rings.

Portabellini Burger ($14) has 6.5 oz local prime rib patty with portabellini, Guinness cheddar, chipotle aioli and butter lettuce served on a brioche bun.

Ahi Tuna Burger ($16) has a 5 oz Ahi tuna steak with miso aioli, watercress and creamy avocado. Topped with fried onions, served on a brioche bun.

I know, I should have gotten a beef burger like the others, but once I see the word “tuna”, I kinda had to gravitate towards it. The ahi tuna is lightly seared on the outside. It tasted alright, but it wasn’t the most amazing ahi tuna burger I have had. If you are a true burger fan, might as well stick with the other meaty burgers.

Fried Pickles with truffle dip it’s not on the menu, but they have it if you ask them. I added this to my meal and I think it was a few bucks more. I’ve heard much of the deep fried pickles, but I was super unsure how it would taste. I love pickles on its own! After eating it fried, I thought it was good for the first piece but then it got kinda boring. I really wish the pieces of the pickles were thicker rather than the thin ones. It’s probably because I love pickles just the way they are.

Overall, Stackhouse Burger Bar has good burgers, but it can get a bit pricey if you want a drink and upgraded sides.

Words of Wisdom:

  • May need reservations for peak hours
  • Good burgers – Stackhouse Burger!
  • Slightly Pricey
  • Closest Skytrain: Granville (a bit of a walk…probably need to bus if you are lazy)

  • Fried pickles?! Never heard of such thing, I was just in the neighbourhood…should have got some to go. I bet they would be delicious in a burger.
