My wife and I happened across Max’s Burgers on 8th Ave the other day, and we’re glad we did! What attracted us first was the phrase “bacon marmalade” that was mentioned on the menu board outside. Bacon marmalade??
We ordered the British Columbian burger to share. This has an AA Alberta chuck patty, bacon marmalade, applewood smoked bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion and sauce on a house-baked brioche bun.
Everything about this burger was delicious – the meat was tender and tasty, the bun soft and fresh, the bacon marmalade and Big Max sauce adding some depth of flavour not often found in a burger. The hand-cut fries were pretty darn good too!
We decided to indulge in one of the personal sized cakes each for dessert. I opted for a Black Forest Cake and my wife chose the Carrot Cake.
The cakes were awesome – fresh, delicious, and just the right size.
The manager, Travis, came and spoke to us as he recognized us from a previous place he worked. He ended up giving us a guided tour of the massive production bakery that operates underneath the restaurant – no wonder their buns and cakes are so awesome!
Although I wasn’t in the mood for a bier this particular evening, I did note that they have a selection of BC craft brews available from R & B and Russel.
