/\.....sounds like it'll be worth at least one visit. Not at all a fan of Bin4, on any level, so I'm thinking it would be difficult for B-W to be any worse.

Bin4 and Big Wheel are very different burgers, the former being a restaurant-style massive burger and the latter a high-end fast-food burger. Both have very unique tastes and the presentation style is very different. I'm certainly a fan!

I've found recently that Bin 4 burgers have gotten quite a bit smaller...they're more restaurant style classy fusion burger now. The Pink Bicycle is definitely the king of the restaurant-style massive burger these days. Those things are YUGE. Fatburger has a pretty good burger size too. This coming from someone who frequents our fair city's burger joints on a regular basis.

I would pick Big Wheel and Pink Bicycle over Bin4 any day. My last burger at Bin4 was dry and flavourless. I don't care how many fancy toppings are on my burger, the kitchen shoudl know how to cook the burger patty properly.

"Same". In addition I don't like a dining experience where I have to yell at the person directly sitting across from me as I've done on each of the 3 occasions I've been to the B4 location off Cloverdale. Also I wasn't impressed with the fries (twice undercooked) and, to my mind, their relatively limited appy menu......

Our family has been to the Big Wheel burger place in Saanich quite a few times now and we love it. The food is excellent. The restaurant is bright and clean and even when every table is full, you are still able to chat with your family without having to shout in order to be heard. Highly recommend.

Cool, given that I just tried Johnny Rockets, twice, I am in a burger frame of mind.  Especially since the BBQ buy/don't buy debate is still raging in my house. I can have my blood work done next door then get a burger :) Especially since my naturopath of all people told me to eat more "flesh".  Didn't say anything about fries but that is a given...
