One burger reigns supreme over the community


Seven great burgers, seven unique creations, but ultimately only one trophy.
The bigger better burger challenge was held for the first time in 11 years and just like the first time all those years ago, the competition was fierce. Ultimately however, it came down to the same result.
In what was the tightest race yet, Good Thymes walked away yet again with bragging rights as having the best burger in the community. Earning the initial top honours 11 years ago with the Ram Burger, this years’ creation the Sage Burger won what was a narrow race for the best burger out there.
It was such a narrow race in fact that the judges spent plenty of time debating the merits of each burger and finally agreed that while the Sage Burger was the best, this competition was worthy of naming a top three.
Coming in second was Taavi’s Grill with their Taavi’s DD Burger and rounding out the top three was the Angry Niska Burger from the Kikiwak Inn.
“It was a great competition and it was nice to see so many restaurants step up to the plate and put forward such great creations,” said judge Trent Allen of the Opasquia Times who, along with Mark Behrens of 102.9 FM CJAR, tasted all seven burgers in the challenge. “It was truly a hard competition to judge and each burger that came out seemed to be better or more unique or creative than the last. It was fascinating to see the variety of burgers offered up.”
Those burgers included a grilled cheese burger, ones topped with items like deep fried onions and pickles, some that were the size of your dinner plate and other which relied more on quality than quantity with bountiful flavours. It ultimately was a great challenge and one which many burgers stepped up to the challenge on building a better burger. Here’s hoping these burgers remain on the menu for years to come, much like how that Ram Burger is still available at Good Thymes even today.
