Big Burger World – Canon City

After having a very exciting experience around the Royal Gorge and the Arkansas river area I was getting pretty hungry. A Ranger that I ran into mentioned Big Burger World and I was sold almost immediately.

Big Burger World is a stand style of restaurant where you walk up to the window and place an order and then can eat at some of the picnic tables around. Big Burger kind of gave that 50’s hamburger stand vibe that you see in the movies. A lot of people were there and enjoying lunch when I pulled up and there was a great energy with folks sitting around picnic tables and enjoying some good food. I took the below picture after I finished eating so I guess I cleared the place out but it was worth it!

The Food

Now to the important part…the Food. So what else would I order at Big Burger World than a burger. However, there is a a large assortment of items on the menu. I really had no idea what to expect when I ordered. After all, big can be a relative term I guess.

I ordered the “Big Dave” Burger. The clerk asked if I wanted everything on it and I said yes. I really didn’t have much more information to go on other than that. Then the burger came out. It was big.

The Big Dave burger was an enormous burger that was as big as my outstretched hand.  It is the biggest burger at Big Burger World

I don’t know if the above picture did this burger enough justice so below are a couple of pictures for reference. Picture one is the burger next to a full sized ketchup packet and two is showing that the bun is bigger than my outstretched hand.

This burger was pretty amazing and it wasn’t just the size. The Big Dave has two half pound patties leading to a full pound of beef on a toasted bun. This was one of the better ones I had tasted. The seasoning on the burger was tremendous and it almost had a charcoal grill flavor. I was really impressed that it wasn’t just a gimmicky large burger but it actually was cooked really well and tasted delicious.

I would like to say I could finish the entire thing but I definitely could not. A third of this colossal sandwich was all I could manage! It was so good though and I ended up getting a couple more meals out of it. I highly recommend the Big Burger World if you ever find yourself down in Canon City.

Big Burger World is located at 1205 S. 9th St. in Canon City. It is just about a half mile off of the main road that takes you through the downtown area. There are some outdoor picnic style tables to eat at while there but no indoor dining.
