Glo Euro-Pub and Grill — 104 - 2940 Jutland Road (Gorge Waterway) — (250) 385-5643 —

Prime Rib Burger

Here's the question you have to ask yourself about Glo: is this a chain restaurant or not? Glo is part of the Glo restaurant group; a group that includes itself and the two Med-Grills in town. All three restaurants have almost carbon copy menus... but Glo has a different name and a slightly different vibe that comes from being on the water.

If Glo is a chain, it's pulled off one hell of a coup. It's somehow created a chain-burger that stomps all over the stand-alone competition.

The Prime Rib Burger is simply incredible. The juicy 10oz patty, coupled with a killer red pepper aioli, stress the bun to just the right level: messy enough to let you know you're having a good time, but never getting to a level where you break through the bun.

Sauteed onions and mushrooms balancing on top of a healthy dose of bacon and cheese make for a topping medley that's as tantalizing as the nubile waitresses.

Glo's Prime Rib burger is the kind of burger that not even a small-stomached senior could bare to share. It's truly unbelievable that the Glo restaurant chain has managed to create such a superior product. This is the burger that Cactus Club's "the burger" wishes it was.

VERDICT: Quite possibly the best burger in Victoria, at a price that's rather reasonable.

The Buffalo Burger from Glo with the mango relish and red pepper aioli is my favorite in town.

Dig it.
