Crossroads Bar and Grill | Colwood, B.C. | 1889 Island Highway | 250.478.1311 | www.crossroadsbarandgrill.ca

Beer Cheese Burger
$11
Stout Onions add $1.50
Bacon add $2



Let's put beer in everything cause beer is good and then we'll be unique: thus seems to be the philosophy at Crossroads. Although they appear to be trying to rise out of the pit of mediocrity that is CRD pub food, this burger is pretty banal.

Although not as bad as the Lilliputian wrapped in the fist of Gulliver style bun:burger ratio at Bo's; there are still some problems here. Whole wheat buns generally suck balls, and such is the case at Crossroads. The bun in this package is dry, boring, and adds nothing to this package. The flame-grilled patty (seasoned with garlic, pepper, and diced sweet onions) is alright, but there just really isn't anything in this package to properly support it.

The Beacon IPA Beer Cheese, and the Farmhand Ale BBQ Sauce are alright, but aren't anything to write home about. More importantly, they really don't go very far towards enhancing the overall cohesion and flavour of the unit. As for the stout onions and bacon... they pretty much just get lost under that crappy bun, effectively muting their impact on the package. Snooooooozeeeeeeefest.

VERDICT: Crossroads appears to at least be trying to look like they are doing something interesting, but the reality is this one's a bit of a bore.

BBQ sauce has no place on a burger as a condiment.

the burger was boring, dry meat in a drier bun... rather go to wendy's than waste money on this junk...

Thankfully, the buns have recently been changed at the Cross Roads. A nice improvement.
