PEI Burger Love 2016 - All Over

Another successful Burger Love month in the books. This year I managed to sample 20 of the 73 burgers available. I know that seems like a lot (and it is), I justify it to myself by saying that most were shared with my wife and several were split 4 ways with friends.

All the stats are now in and for Burger Love 2016 there were a total of 163,170 burgers sold (145k last year), that's over $2.2 million in burger sales in just 30 days. The winner this year, based on fan voting, was the Brick-Inator from the Brickhouse.

Unfortunately I didn't get to try that one as the Brickhouse was basically fully booked for the last 2 weeks of the month, luckily with the win it will be on their menu for the rest of the year.


Here are my rankings, please take with a grain of salt. I like bacon, cheese and BBQ and not a big fan of "spice" so my rankings reflect my personal taste. Feel free to click on the burger name to read my review. I'd be interested to hear what your opinion is on some of these burgers.

Kudos to all of the restaurants that participated and to the Burger Love team for doing such a great job of promoting all month. Looking forward to Porktoberfest in October and Burger Love again next spring.
