Vera's Burger Shack is a local business that claims to serve honest bergers and boasts about the quality of its meat. I like the idea that every night there is a different feature and I can customize my burger. Often I order a grilled/blackened Chicken Breast Burger and can also vouch for the Turkey Club. I am also fond of... More

I stopped in on my way home and grabbed a burger here. It took a while because they custom cook to orders. It really was an outstanding burger. They are licenced, so toy can grab a beer with your meal.

If you are visiting Kitsilano Beach and are hungry, walk a few blocks down to Vera's Burger Shack for a great burger. We were blown away by the flavor of this beef burger. Single patty is the perfect size. Not too big and easy to keep the topping on while eating. The fries are nicely browned and have a crunch.... More

I went with my husband and cousin who are omni, I am vegan and I like to find places who can cater for all. I asked if the veggie burger was vegan, the boy on the till said he didn't know. I asked if he could find out. He called the "chef" over and I asked again, "no" he said.... More

I've lived 2 blocks from Vera's on Cornwall Ave for 19 years, this is a local, family grown biz with 4 or 5 outlets from a single burger joint in West Van. They definitely have the best tasting ground beef I've had in Vancouver. There are a dozen different specialty burgers plus fries, pop, beer, and recently bought out a... More

I ordered the blackened chicken with fries. It took longer than I wanted to wait and was kind of expensive, but I have to admit it was definitely delicious.

Good reputation. Service was great. Food was ok. We took our food down to Kits Beach and had a picnic on a cool, sunny day. Yummy fries. Tacos were alright. Our friend had a burger that was very good.

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
