It doesn’t look like much. A tiny stand-alone shop with a few picnic tables outside for seating and a laissez-faire approach to parking, Penticton’s Burger 55 is a little underwhelming at first sight. Step inside, though, and you’ll find yourself reminded of that old adage “Never judge a book by its cover.”
Grab a clipboard and be prepared to make some serious choices. Choose your patty. Choose your bun. Cheese. Sauces. Premium sauces. Toppings. PREMIUM TOPPINGS. I’ve never felt so in control of my life before.
I wanted to take a picture of my masterpiece of a burger (there was definitely guacamole involved), but I had one bite and couldn’t stop. I recommend getting a side of the absolute best onion rings you’ll ever have in your life, and some Anarchist Amber Ale to wash it all down.
And, bonus, the soundtrack they had going on was pretty incredible. Some old Ludacris to go with my meal? Yeah, okay.
