...& here's the Pig/Zambri's place:

Bigwheel Burger to offer retro fare in Cook Street Village

With connections to Zambri's, Pig, this is no fast-food joint, owners say

By Andrew A. Duffy, Times Colonist July 23, 2011

A Bigwheel will be rolling into town this fall as the combined forces of Zambri's restaurant and Pig BBQ open the city's newest burger joint in Cook Street Village.

Bigwheel Burger will open its doors in November in what was once a laundromat at 341 Cook St.



McNeil said they went to burger joints all over the U.S. to find the right kind of style and feel for their restaurant and found some inspiration in the Shake Shack in New York.

"We will be freshly grinding the meat every day, using triple A organic cuts and simple, good, local ingredients," he said, noting they also intend to offer value by providing a burger, fries and a shake for $12.

"Basically this will be a throwback," he said. "We want to keep this simple, good, healthy and affordable."

The menu will offer a few variations of their burger, a veggie burger, fries, poutine, salads, shakes and homemade cookies for ice cream sandwiches. It will be licensed to sell beer and wine.

It's a very simple menu. But won't people want more choice eventually?

$7 for a kids meal is not bad at all - what are you comparing it to?

Pretty sure this place is built to franchise - who wants in?

A Happy Meal is $5.49, nowadays. I think the $1.51 is worth the difference - plus, they even have a toy! Shame about no onion rings, though.

In and Out Burger gets by with Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Double burger, fries, for their total menu, and they are one of the most popular fast food restraunts anywhere. Rated number 1 by Consumer Reports and me.:D

Apparently people don't require more choice than that cause the places are crowded all day every day.
Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

The grill is what will separate a big wheel burger from any other burger in Victoria. You can all expect great things off of that beautiful piece of equipment.
