Cactus Club, Coquitlam BC Canada Sliders

Cactus Club in Coquitlam for a casual dinner with family, the place is packed, 30 minutes for a table.

I feel like ordering a hamburger (sometimes that happens) but I don't want to order the Fennie Burger. Not that it’s a bad burger it’s actually pretty good. You can read my review here from the last visit.

It’s just not outstanding and I kind of feel a "been there done that" kinda thing. In case you are wondering a burger has to rate at least a 9/10 for me to get excited about repeat orders.

And that's a bit of a pet peeve for me for many of these chain restaurants, their menus become a bit stale at least on the burger side. They should consider having a monthly or seasonal burger, something different. It’s been almost a year since my last burger at Cactus Club and it’s the same old thing.

Change it up a little. Hey, it works for McDonalds.

So I ordered the burger sliders. Not bad, pretty good actually, 8/10. I find that sliders for the most part because they don't include all the usual accouterments that come with burgers are more about the flavour of the beef. More of a pure burger burger and here it works the beef really comes through and the sliders are quite pleasant.

But I won't be ordering them again. Ok, maybe I will if I’m with a group of people and we order a bunch of appies to share.

But please Cactus Club add some new burgers on the menu for me.

Glo Restaurant and Lounge. Victoria BC

Burger killed by heat lamp.

My pickle was dry and limp.

It’s a shame really because the rest of the burger was really really good, great potential, especially the sauce, loved it but couldn't really crack the code on its ingredients, sweat creamy cheezyish, its driving me crazy I just can't get it. But it was good. The patty was big and juicy, fresh but not ground in house, nice touch on the oven dried tomatoes, together soft and melty, I give the burger and easy 8/10 even with the heat lamp crisping.

Imagine what it could have been. Stay away from the artificial radiation (the place is called Glo, right? Never mind) and there is a winnner burger here.

The Glo Lamb burger is good as well check it out here.
