Description: A trip to B.C. is not complete without a taste of a Triple ”O” burger from White Spot, and now YVR passengers have one more “spot” to pick one up on the fly. Serving all your familiar favourites including burgers with Triple “O” sauce and dill pickles, they also offer fresh salads, pastas, rice bowls and  stir-fries. And for the kids, nothing can beat a White Spot Pirate Pak, still served in a boat. A gluten-free menu is available.

“great little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

The White Spot near the mall in Richmond provided us a much needed meal after a long flight into YVR. We ordered the fish and chips and they were quite yummy! The service was a bit slow but the restaurant seemed crowed for the time we were there. The staff were friendly and welcoming.

“Convenient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

I went to this restaurant to try what is called a bc institution. It was the restaurant at yvr airport.
I did not try any of their special menu featuring bc products, instead went boring with a burger and shake...Shake was warm, which really surprised and disappointed me. Burger was good, but everything slid around and the bun kind of disintegrated, so it was nowhere near as good as one I had the Delta days before. So while it was convenient, based on my experience, hardly worth being an institution.

“White Spot Always Delivers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

If you are craving a good old fashioned hamburger, White Spot has some of the best for the price. White Spot has other menu items but they are famous for their burgers. They often have season specials and support locally grown food products and producers.

I had a flight routing that required a layover at Vancouver International Airport (YVR). I stayed at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel right in the airport. But when I found out there was a White Spot in the airport, I had to go, even though there were some negative reviews about service.

I ordered the Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger, a 6 oz. beef burger with bacon and cheddar cheese, Of course lettuce, tomato & White Spot’s own Triple "O" sauce. Endless French fries and slaw are the norm, but I ordered the Caesar Salad at no extra cost. The Burger was fully cooked but still juicy and tender, the cheddar was real cheese with just the right amount of sharp taste and the bacon had a nice hickory smoke. If anything the bacon was slightly undercooked. The Caesar salad was pretty ordinary and basic but nothing wrong with that. I have gotten the “Spot” salad before and it’s very nice.

Some review sites listed negative comments about service but I was surprised, the service was friendly and polite. It may have been a tad bit slow, but I was alone. Wait time seems shorter with a dining companion.

All-in-all the YVR White Spot lives up to my expectations. It’s not fancy but a good basic burger.

White spot is consistent with service and food, which is what you need at an airport.The blueberry 'pie' was diffrent, but it hit the spot.

“Good family diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Kids loved this one. Usual kids menu with crayons and activity pack on arrival.

Kids menu includes reasonable choices including macaroni, chicken, burger or fish. Decent sides to choose from too. Kids meals served in a card board boat with a gold chocolate coin

Adults, we enjoyed chicken, cheese and broccoli bake. It was delicious.

Also sampled a nice salad with candied salmon and walnuts. Quite tasty.

Topped off with a huge piece of chocolate cake.

Good service and food quality was fine. Wine a little pricey but a 9oz glass was fine.

Went back several times as the kids love it
