I was off to try a relatively-new grilled burger resto. First off, I prefer grilled burgers than the usual ones. So trying “Big Better Burgers” was one thing I’ve been waiting for.
The BBB we tried is located at the 1st floor of the SM City North Edsa Annex, just a stone’s throw away from SM Savemore. The interior is nice giving you a cozy feel of being slightly at home. The design is so simple and yet so relaxing. I believe the mood lights did the trick plus the brick walls put the touch of sophistication and the homey feeling of the countryside.
The place is a bit small and in my estimates can only accomodate around 25-30 people at a time, including the tables and chairs outside.
Honestly, business-wise, the location of the BBB outlet in SM North is not as “strategic” as far as foodies would like it to be. Since the store is situation in a building where more “techies” go to, than food-goers. Anyway, I think, this is a matter of lack of choice anymore, since, the main SM building has run out of places to be rented out for a new player like BBB can effectively and efficiently afford.
In general, like what I said, I prefer grilled burgers. The distinct aroma and taste, only via grilling, gives the burger that “whatchamacallit” unique blend.
First off, I tried their potato wedges and fries. Their fries are thick. The kind of fries you would like to get your hands on. Served either with ketchup or cheese dip.

This is a burger resto right? So let’s move on to the main menu – the BURGERS.
I was able to try four of their burgers: Mushroom Loco, Bacon Barbecue and Double Dare with Cheese (though there were other burgers on the table, these three were the only ones I tried)
Generally, the burger patty is what are looking for. The patties on the burger I tried were great. It’s juicy and meaty, very right for my tastebuds. This is what I like about grilled. The unique scent, texture, feel and taste on my tongue is wonderful. BBB patties has those on what I look for in a burger. Plus, their mix of “experiments” to add flavor to their burger patties is fantastic.
Like for the Bacon BBQ and Mushroom Loco. Both have the different flavors that a customer can choose from. Though, personally, I prefer the Bacon BBQ.
The Double Dare w/ Cheese, of course, who wouldn’t notice? This was THE mother of burgers which was served to us during our visit. And for me, it is one of the best grilled burgers I’ve tried. Anyone can identity that it’s premium meat, (not extenders, LOL).
BBB also offers pasta meals with grilled meat combination. The one I tried were BBB Meatballs in White Sauce, in Fresh Tomato, and in Pesto Sauce. One is unique from the other. And as for me who loves pasta as well, these three were a delight. I cannot prefer one over the other. Good thing that I was able to try all. The three is worth your money to try.
Another unique thing about BBB is their rice meals. Their rice meals are affordable, considering the choice of meat, sauce and service they provide. As for the taste, there’s no doubt that BBB bring out the best from their cooking. Combined with the sauces, they sure know how to make MORE out of the meat.
Among the five rice meals I tried, there was one dish that stood out for my taste. It’s the Quarter Pound Sunshine Rice in A1 Sauce.
Do not be mistaken of the other four, they are good at their own rank, however, during that time, when I tried all of the five dishes, the Quarter Pound Sunshine Rice in A1 Sauce was really different from the food I’ve tasted before. The unique blend of its ingredients brought out the best of the A1 sauce apart. The mix of spicy, sweet, sour taste that was right, very right, for my taste buds made all the difference. Making it apart from their other offerings.
So, if you’re a craving for burgers, this place is worth your money and time to spend on. As for price and taste, Big Better Burgers (BBB) can SURELY stand on its name. It can very much compete against other burger joints offering premium meat, grilled burger.
At price point, BBB is relatively cheaper compared to other from its bracket. Plus, their offerings of rice and pasta is another big factor.
If there is one dish that you would like to try first, it is definitely the Quarter Pound Sunshine Rice in A1 Sauce. It is a “show stealer”. If you think you have tasted grilled burgers, then, better try this one. I am sure, anyone can be surprised with the taste.

EDITOR’S NOTE: I can’t say much of the service since the BBB Management was expecting us to dine. Thus, I have to try BBB service on another setting wherein I will just any regular customer. I was part of an invited list via openrice.com.phFOLLOW MY ADVENTURES ON:
