Launched in 2012, the annual event has brought burger lovers together in numerous Canadian cities since 2017, when the fest expanded to include Montreal, Quebec City, Cornwall, Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon and, Vancouver.
Metro Vancouverites have a few places they can head to in order to sink their teeth into some pretty epic meaty and cheesy creations as part of the 2019 Le Burger Week.
Diners are encouraged to eat and vote for their favourites.
Here are the participating restaurants and their Le Burger Week creations:
Bells and Whistles: Duke Caboom
The ‘Duke Caboom’ is a true Canadian daredevil: it features a cheese curd-stuffed patty topped with a bacon weave, lettuce, tomato, pickle, onion ring and thyme-roasted mushrooms with maple and cheddar mayo.
Address: 3296 Fraser St, Vancouver
Bin 4 Burger Lounge: Do You Smell What The Rock is Cooking?
63 Acres Premium BC beef, caramelized onions, fontina cheese, crispy onions, chipotle sauce, butter lettuce, tomato, garlic aioli.

The Canadian Brewhouse – Richmond: Peppercorn Delight
A spicy peppercorn burger smothered with tangy goat cheese, arugula, tomatoes, red onions and our creamy, dreamy garlic sauce. All served on a delightful brioche bun.
Address: 4755 Mcclelland Road, Unit 1305, Richmond
CAVU kitchen bar: Le Big Mac N’ Cheese Burger
As with all things CAVU, the “Le Big Mac N Cheese”, is a playful albeit intimidating twist on a classic. Who doesn’t love mac n cheese? Who doesn’t love a burger? Who wouldn’t love a burger where the mac n cheese is the bun?! Careful, it’s a big one though. Mind blown… ‘nuff said.
Address: 5911 Minoru Blvd, Richmond

Four-ounce beef patty, two slices of American cheese, mushrooms, chopped onions, pickled jalapenos, mayonnaise, and house made pickles.
Address: 151 E Broadway, Vancouver
