Summer is great for a lot of reasons – the sunshine, vacations, all the Edmonton festivals, that patio life.
I also love it because restaurants typically release special summer menu items!
Boston Pizza invited Mike and I down to try some of their new Summer Menu items and is giving me two $50 gift cards to giveaway for readers so you can try the items too.
Read on and enter the giveaway below!
Mike and I don’t visit Boston Pizza too often – though I’m a big fan of their cactus cut chips and their boneless wings so when we visit, that’s typically what we order. We also love to visit with our niece and nephew because the BP’s kids menu is so great.
For this dinner, we invited the kids and their parents to join us!
They love Boston Pizza (it is really great for families) and that night (at the Windermere location) it looked like all the families in the neighbourhood were there too.
The Boston Pizza Summer Menu is themed around the idea of an “All-Star Line-Up” with “All-Star Food.”
On the starting line-up (see the sportsy reference I used there? ;)) is the new MVB – Most Valuable Burger. The MVB is simple but delicious, featuring 100% Canadian all-beef patty, salt, pepper, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, and BP’s signature cactus dip sauce between a brioche bun ($14.99).
Add bacon for just a $1 (Mike did!)
They’ve also got some new summer drinks including a Watermelon Sangria and three flavours of new ‘Handcrafted Quenchers’ (non-alcoholic). I had the Black Raspberry Quencher and thought it was fantastic (try to ask for extra raspberries! lol). The quenchers use all natural flavours (no added sugars) so they’re a healthier alternative to sugary sodas.
They’re also perfect for the patio! (though that night we were inside lol).
Mike ordered The MVB with Caesar Salad and really liked his burger.
It doesn’t look like much but it packs a punch of flavour.
The Canadian beef patty is delicious, and Mike also loved the cactus dip (which we typically love with our order of the Cactus Cut chips!)
I ordered the Pepperoni and Bacon Pizza Burger, which is basically a beef patty wrapped in a pepperoni pizza, stuffed with bacon, mozzarella, and pizza sauce, topped with more pepperoni and mozzarella, and then baked and garnished with lettuce, tomato, and a pickle.
It’s super meaty and perfect for pizza lovers.
The tomato, lettuce and pickle are kind of a funny afterthought because this ‘burger’ really is all about the meat, lol.
Another Summer Menu item is BP’s Dessert Burger!
The Dessert Burger is basically a dessert slider, with chocolate ganache and vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce drizzled between a warm bun.
Mike describes the Dessert Burger like a waffle/pancake ice cream sandwich.
Along with these items we tried, the new Summer Menu also has some lighter fare like an Asian Shrimp Salad, BP’s House Chicken Salad or Shrimp or Chicken Tacos.
Needless to say, with all the burger options on the new Summer Menu items, plus the usual kids menu, cactus cut chips, and boneless wings, there’s something for everyone (particularly families) at Boston Pizza!
I had a great dinner with my niece, nephew, and brother & sister-in-law, and I hope you to treat you and your family for a dinner out trying BP’s Summer Menu too!

Always struggle to decide between Burger or Pizza – so the Pepperoni and Bacon Pizza burger eliminates that dilemma. My 12 yr old son Evan, loves perogies so the Spicy Perogy Burger would definitely be his choice. NOW….We cannot leave without (2) Dessert Burgers…..then I am sure a summer NAP….Thanks for the great giveaway and also a preview of BP’s summer menus.

The Asian Shrimp Salad is summer on a plate! So many crisp, fresh ingredients combined the taste of ginger & topped with asian noodles for texture… it’s just a dish of sunshine!
