Beacon Hill Drive-In | 126 Douglas Street | 250•385•7521

Cheeseburger
$5


This is not the worst burger in Victoria. Despite what Victoria Burger Blog Facebook Group Members may say; this doesn't even come close to some of the other burger shit-storms swirling around various south-island kitchens.

I will agree this burger is boring. There is no denying the fact that this burger holds nothing in the way of pleasing flavour, and goes nowhere towards killing cravings. This is not enough to make it the worst burger in Victoria though. There is a difference between boring and blindingly, infuriatingly bad. I will concede that, unlike in other units, the mustard/onion and American cheese mix can't save the Beacon Hill Burger from its descent into a maelstrom of meh—but its blandness doesn't inspire vegetarianism, or anything similarly terrifying.

Consider yourself lucky if this is the worst burger you've ever had in Victoria.

VERDICT: Yah it sucks, but you could do a lot worse.

Damn, DK...... that looks god-awfull.

That place is a little tourist trap accross from the park, ice cream is like 900 % mark-up, probably the same for what looks like a frozen disk between the bun on that "burger".

Where is the worst burger then?

This brings back memories. Back in the 60/70s my dad used to work near this place. When he had to work unplanned overtime, he got a meal allowance and Beacon Hill drive was one of the places he went. He never offered to take mom and me to it even though we often drove by and it looked good to me. Suggestion: always include a store front photo when posting!

Greetings folk bloggers!
I totally love eating hamburgers! They have such an awesomely delicious taste which takes me to a far far away land full of nice flavors.
I think I should give this piece a try in order to realize by my own self if it really worths or not. Anyway, congratulations for your pretty well designed and written column, it is so tasty too!
