As I entered Cambie Village’s brand new burger joint I couldn’t help but wonder if the bleach blond Food Network star had contributed to its business plan. With rock ‘n roll playing and a $55 burger on the menu, it was right up his alley. Of course, there was a line-up out the door.
Max’s Burgers — the brainchild of Chef Connor Butler and Redpath Foods — offers an over-the-top menu that will leave gluttons tingling with excitement.
Enhance your sandwich with chili, bacon marmalade, or Hollandaise, spring for a mix of sides instead of one with Max’s Triple Bypass (yams, Kennebec fries and onion rings fried in beef tallow), and wash it all down with a Stout and Fudge adult shake.
The British Columbia Burger, with its buttery house-baked brioche bun, Applewood smoked bacon, semi-sweet bacon marmalade, and thick slice of cheddar, was downright delicious…one might say burger heaven. You must try this for yourself.
