A $23, 2 pound burger?
Yes, it is possible to get a burger that big at Texx Big Burger in Surrey! My friend David Dyer does Social Media Management for Texx so when I saw a post from David on Facebook, I had to find out more! This weekend, I was already in Surrey for a “Rock Your Financial Plan” Workshop so I thought I might as well try out this famous Burger Shop on my way home. I had no idea how popular this place was. It was a Saturday evening at 6 pm and literally every table was taken with a big line-up of people waiting to get their burger. WOW! This was one of the Best Burger Shops in the Vancouver area – it had taken me a few years to find out about it!
After seeing their signature Giant Burger and pictures of people trying it, I knew I had to give it a taste. However, there was no way I was going to be able to finish a 2 lb burger by myself. So, luckily, Dave and I were able to split the burger in half. Even then, it was super filling and there were so many fries that Dave ended up taking the bag home. This place goes all out…with the burger, with fries, with the bottomless pop, with super customer service, with everything! One of the cool things I liked about Texx Burger is that you get a sheet of paper as you order where you mark what condiments and ingredients you want in your burger. It’s tailor made to your taste right before your eyes. Best of all, it’s “healthy” (as far as burgers go) since there are no additives or preservatives.
There is even a Texx Giant Burger Challenge where if you beat the current record of 8 minutes and 54 seconds, you can get your money back, win an extra $200, and get a free Texx Burger. There are dozens of pictures of different people trying out the challenge on the walls of the Burger Shop. I would love to see a video of the record holder! I couldn’t even finish half of the burger that I split with Dave in that time frame! Perhaps, I should try it after fasting for a few days and coming to the shop super hungry! The owner and operator Peter Petrean has created a unique taste sensation in the heart of Surrey that has people flocking to this quintessential burger shop to see what all the fuss is about. Will you be next?
Here’s a video of me trying my first ever Texx Burger:
