Readers' Choice Award Winner: Bin 4 Burger Lounge

WINNER Reader’s Choice Best Burgers


Bin 4 Burger Lounge opened their first location in November 2011 at 180-911 Yates Street in Downtown Victoria.


Bin 4 Burger Lounge contemporizes the classic burger, making it gourmet with fresh, ingredients, toppings and sides. Burgers are no longer only about the beef. They’re about what you put on it, in it, next to it and what you wash it down with.


Enjoy a cold pint from a local craft brewery, savour a glass of vino from the feature wine list, and try one of our refreshing cocktails made with fresh squeezed juices and house-made syrups.


Bin 4 is locally owned and operated, with a menu that features fresh, local ingredients, house-made sauces and ethically raised, hormone-free meats.


We choose to support local whenever possible, whether it’s the buns or the coffee. Playing with a diverse range of flavour combinations and with a focus on freshness, taste and quality, Bin 4 aims to modernize the ever-so-popular burger. Catering to all ages and tastes, the menu extends beyond burgers and even incorporates gluten-free and vegetarian options.


Bin 4 began with three burger-lovers and friends who envisioned a new kind of restaurant – a burger joint serving only the classic gastronomic icon – with a gourmet touch.
