A Look Inside Vancouver’s Very First CaliBurger

Known as In-N-Out Burger’s doppelganger, CaliBurger is creating quite the hype among Vancouverites.

The California-style burger chain will finally open its doors to the public at 11am on Friday, June 3rd. The restaurant is located in the heart of the Robson Street shopping district, at 830 Thurlow Street.

In celebration of opening day—the first 100 people in line will be eligible to win one of two “gold cards” which would entitle each winner to enjoy one free combo every day for a year.

“I’m excited to be opening Western Canada’s first CaliBurger location in my hometown,” says Vancouver franchisee Reyaz A. Kassamali of the 2200+ square-foot location. “Not only will we be giving the city a better burger, I personally look forward to giving back to the community I grew up in through local charitable partnerships.”

Here’s a sneak preview of what to expect at Vancouver’s first CaliBurger location.




The menu offers fresh (never frozen) burgers, chicken sandwiches, hand-cut fries and milkshakes that can be spiked with bourbon, rum or Bailey’s. Select beer is available on tap, including Red Truck Brewery.


Their mouth-watering burgers include the Cali Chicken Sandwich, the Chipotle BBQ Chicken Sandwich with bacon, the classic Cali Double Burger and the Cali Portobello Mushroom Burger, as a vegetarian option.


Choose between regular fries or Cali-style fries (smothered in melted cheese, grilled sweet onions and their signature sauce).


For entertainment, there’s an interactive 9-foot video wall to play Minecraft and other games.
