Giveaway: Enter to win free 50/50 burgers at White Spot

White Spot 50 50 Burger - Hawaiian Burger - Edmonton Restaurants

Edmontonians love their burgers and I feel like in recent years there’s been an influx in higher-end burger chains in the city. Well, when I say higher-end, don’t get me wrong, it’s not fine dining and still very reminiscent of a fast food burger joint, but places like Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Smashburger or Fatburger were definitely meant to be a more attractive, more burger-focused, definitely more hip option than say a Burger King or McDonalds.

I had no idea there was a new(ish) restaurant in Edmonton called White Spot – that also specializes in burgers until they recently reached out and asked me if I’d be interested in doing a burger giveaway for readers.

White Spot originated in B.C. back in 1928 but now has locations in Edmonton, Calgary, and Leduc. It’s apparently Canada’s longest-running restaurant chain now in its 87th year! (How have I never heard of it?) And they would likely be more in line with burger-focused actual sit-down casual restaurants like Soda Jerks, Delux Burger, Red Robins, etc. Very family-friendly/family-oriented.

In Edmonton, the White Spot is located at the Four Points Sheraton on 10010 12 Avenue (far south). The Leduc location is not too far off – at 5230 50 Ave.

I haven’t tried White Spot yet (it’s been so busy this month) but I’m planning to get down there before October 11 to try their new 50/50 burgers and I hope you’ll try them too (for free) by entering my giveaway! White Spot has developed three new 50/50 Burgers that are running as specials Sept. 8 – Oct. 11. A 50/50 Burger is a burger patty that “combines the best of both worlds” (really though) – it’s half beef and half double-smoked bacon. Droooools.

Their three new specials are the Classic Diner 50/50 Burger – which is described as a new twist on an old favourite with caramelized onions, cheese & Dijon mayo. ($13.99)

White Spot 50 50 Burger - PBJ Burger - Edmonton Restaurants

And the Hawaiian 50/50 Burger – where you’re encouraged to go tropical with candied bacon, savoury bacon jam, tangy fresh pineapple, lettuce & red onion. ($15.49)

I think it’s a nice opportunity to introduce yourself to this fairly unheard of in Edmonton restaurant while trying out a cool 50/50 burger concept (I’ve never had a half this and half that patty before period, so I’m looking forward to this!)

I’m giving away two sets of two certificates for free 50/50 burgers (so I will select two winners, who will each get 2 certificates so you can go with a friend!) (The certificate says limit one coupon per visit but I’ve been told that you can use more than one coupon for the visit if you win!)

    Have never been to the White Spot. But the burger looks delish!

  • russell

    Whitest is alberta has always been a disappointment in the past….. but it has been a few years. It’s always a staple for me in BC though. Maybe this is a good chance to give them a new try! Thanks Linda

  • Robert O'Keefe

    The hawaiian one sounds incredible! That’s my choice!

  • Wildsau

    Obviously the PBBJ one is the winner. Peanut butter AND bacon? That’s a complete meal right there.

  • Alex L

    The PBBJ burger looks intriguing.

  • Violet P

    Would love to try the Hawaiian 50/50 Burger so enjoy sweetness of the pineapple

  • Patti

    I have never been to the one here, but often in BC. Kind of Denny’s meets Moxies. I am torn between the PBBJ and Hawaiian though. They both look delish!

  • I just love the @brownbuttercafe! 💛💛💛 Pictured 📸 is their Sunny Day bowl with runny egg (🙌🏻), potato, kale, tomatoes avocado, cucumbers and yogurt. My favourite bowl here though is the Crispy Chicken on rice. 🤤 And today I also tried their housemade kettle chips and bacon jalapeño “mak & cheese” which were both soooo good (and so affordable at $2 and $2.75 each). THE BEST!
Also the best? You guys, for your very kind and supportive comments about my Big. Life. Update on the previous post. THANK YOU! 💛💛💛

  • BIG LIFE UPDATE! 🥳
As some of you know, I’ve been on a personal leave from my work as a Digital Strategist at marketing & comms agency @calderbateman @zgm_marketing since January as @mikethyking & I explored whether some time off would help our #UnexplainedInfertility & journey to have a baby. 👶🏻 (It hasn’t. 😞 But we are still hopeful 🤞🏻)
My leave ends this month and I’ve decided I will not be returning to the agency, and will instead go full-time with my blog & personal social media + my own freelance social media strategy & consulting business! 🎉
Going out on my own is something I’ve wanted to do for many, many years. It’s something I thought I would do naturally after taking a maternity leave but that timeline kept getting pushed because I’ve never been able to get pregnant. The leave was just what I needed to reassess and make the decision to finally be my own boss!
I’m so grateful for the time I was able to take off from full-time agency work (though I am aware I was still pretty busy with personal projects 😅 lol). I’m also truly grateful for an employer that was kind & understanding enough to give me personal time off. 💗 I’ll miss working with the talented team, but am so excited for this next step in my life! 🙌🏻
Over the next few months I’ll be updating my blog with a new look & feel + better categorization, putting out (hopefully lol) even better & more useful content for followers & readers, getting some presence up for my new business & throwing myself into organizing @yegcatfest! 😸
I’m also taking new social media strategy, consulting & training clients and am so grateful for all who have been referring clients my way already (unsolicited, which I’m pretty excited about now that I am soliciting lol). 🎉
Thanks to my incredibly supportive husband & best friend @mikethyking. 💗 And thanks to all of YOU for following and engaging with me. 🙏🏻 I feel so lucky & happy that I’ve been able to turn my longtime hobby (social media 🤓) into a career, in such different ways, and now based at home with my furkids 🐶🐶🐱🐱 Read my full update at the link in my bio!

  • Ugh. I LOVE Korean food and this was a good one. 😍 In between #JasperPJParty & mountain adventures, we checked out the Kimchi House in the town of Jasper this weekend. This japchae glass noodle dish with beef was delicious! Along with their bulgogi and army stew (budae jjigae). (The stew broth was so good and extra spicy. But why is there never enough broth? lol) I was sad the Kimchi House didn’t serve banchan (side dishes typically provided with a Korean meal) but was happy with the rest of the meal! 🤤 #lindorktravels

  • Ahhh it was two years ago this weekend that I got a photo at this iconic Instagrammable #PaulSmithPinkWall 💕 in Los Angeles, California and shortly after I started making Instagrammable Wall Guides to cities, organizing wall photo walks, and searching for these walls wherever I travel. 😍💗 This is still one of my favourite walls and I wish more buildings were painted bright, uninterrupted colours like this it makes me immensely happy. 💕 #InstagrammableWalls #Instagrammable #IGwallsofLA #lindorktravels

  • So thrilled to have found @banhcuonyeg through Instagram! 🤤 Bánh cuốn is a delicious Vietnamese steamed rice roll filled with ground pork, mushrooms and shallots. It’s one of my dad’s favourite Vietnamese dishes and something I used to eat a lot with him! When I found out the Khau family was offering made-to-order, fresh bánh cuốn for pick-up in North Edmonton, I *had* to try! 😄 They’re so good! And bring back great memories. 😍 @banhcuonyeg is charging $6 for a dozen rolls (one order). This week I got four orders and have been having some for breakfast, lunch and dinner! 😂🤤 My parents were so happy with the flavour and quality of the rolls (they hold up really well!) that they got the Khau phone number to make their own future orders (they’re not on Instagram lol) 💕 Also it’s always wise to have a bánh cuốn maker on speed dial lol. The rolls are best with Vietnamese ham (cha) but you need to get that separately.
VIETNAMESE FOOD IS THE BEST. ☺️
