I was out for a walk and came across this small restaurant while visiting Vancouver and enjoyed a great burger and fries. There are specials from Monday to Friday and the special for Wednesday that I enjoyed was the BBQ burger--single patty, white cheddar cheese, crispy bacon, fried onions and BBQ sauce. So tasty! The fries were just the way... More

You can go to the 'boutique burger joints', like Roamers... but if you just want a really good burger, at a decent price, then there's no place better than Vera's. The best part is; there are multiple locations, all over the Lower Mainland, so they are easy to find.

I've been a burger guy my entire life. In our two years in Vancouver Vera's on Main is our go-to burger place. The choices of add-ons provides great variety, the burgers aren't too big or too small, and the fries are so good they often disappear before I have my first burger bite. The place is Main Street cheap-and-cheerful and... More

This was one of those random, "happy I stumbled across it" kind of discoveries. These burgers are quite possibly the greatest burgers I have ever had anywhere, and that's counting a LOT of burgers. Huge, greasy, sloppy, stacked towers of deliciousness made from FRESH marinated beef..... YUMM! I've dreamed of these burgers ever since. Can you open a franchise in... More

I don't eat a lot of burgers but this place seem to be the spot to have one when you do. I was impressed by it all.

I ordered a burger,... More

Saw the reviews and thought we would give them a try. Not disappointed. Wife had the Vera burger, good size patty and we'll done, she was happy with it. I had the Philly Cheese Steak with the 1/2 and 1/2. Philly was extremely tender and we'll done, portion was generous. Fries were mediocre, onion rings OK. Would definitely go back.... More

The only reason why I gave this place a second shot was because I was starving and already wasted 25 minutes for food at rice tales that they never made. I travel often thru vancouver airport and I always see the same staff at Vera's. This time was no different. The cashier never smiles, has a tough time expressing herself... More

Neighbourhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
