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)
The PBBJ 50/50 Burger – which features crunchy peanut butter, savoury bacon jam, pickled jalapeños, lettuce & tomato. ($14.99)
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!)
