It can be different every time you go to a place. Sometimes good and sometimes meh.

Wings on Hwy33 in Rutland has a good burger as does A&W most of the time. DQ as well.

McD's in the Mission is poor and can never get an order right.

Fatburger can be good too.

Best burgers I’ve ever had was on my own bbq and from my kitchen, to hell with burger joints.

Went to Five Guys once when it first opened and we never went back. We do go to Burger Baron in Rutland still. Can't beat their mushroom burger or the amount of fries you get there. The market is loaded with burger places, have to have a certain niche to get people in.

I liked Five Guys but haven't eaten there in years. Have never understood the appeal of Burger Baron - always thought their burgers seemed like they were made from the cheapest possible ingredients. Bin Four Burger Lounge makes the best burgers I've ever had.

Sent an e-mail to Five Guys asking about the Westbank location and if they were considering opening another location in either Westbank or Kelowna. This is the response I got this morning.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding our West Bank location. We are looking for a location in Kelowna. Hoping that we are able to open next summer.

Thank you.

Looks like there's some hope then. I did think that for a first outlet in the area the location they chose was bad.

There's a place in the food court down at Bellis Fair mall in Bellingham called "Two Guys Burgers" - don't recommend it [icon_lol2.gif]
