Extreme Eatery

Homecooked Comfort with an Extreme Challenge

The team at Extreme Eatery in Parksville Downtown knows how to provide great food with friends and a
side-order of fun. Think of all your down-home favourites — burgers & beer — then add a twist with
Caesars to die for and poutine from around the globe. Plus, The Gladiator Challenge for those who dare!

Humble Beginnings Leading to Expansion

We caught up with Extreme Eatery’s owner, Kymon Giakoumakis, to ask how his restaurant dream came
to fruition. “Mostly, we have a great team. We take care of our people and our customers, and they take
care of us. We opened our first location just before the pandemic started, after years of food truck
success. We dug deep, worked hard, supported the community — and now we’ve just opened our
second location in Qualicum Beach,” Giakoumakis explained.

The Extreme menu calls out with tried-and-true tastes you love. A chicken burger with candied bacon,
Swiss cheese, and apple slaw. Juicy beef burger patties made in-house and gyros, too. Fries and onion
rings. Poutine that means business. Extreme Eatery has all the good stuff.

Extreme Means Dialing Up Flavour & Options

“We took a classic diner menu and turned up the volume — created our ‘Extreme’ version. Poutine was
a great area to have fun. We’ve developed unique poutine combos no one else offers… not only pulled-
pork poutine, but Greek, Mexi, and perogi options. We’ve sourced local, bakery-fresh brioche buns and
turn them into works of art. Our house-special double-EE sauce is roasted garlic aioli supreme Extreme,”
Giakoumakis said.

Caesars Like No Other, Take the Challenge

“Our goal was to have food that looked great on social media and tasted even better! A TikTok
influencer went viral, and we have people coming from all over Vancouver Island and the Mainland for
our amazing Caesars. Our Gladiator Challenge has been a big hit — a mountain of great food and drink
and a time-limit to finish the Challenge meal. We created a fun experience that is difficult and delicious,
but achievable. Our wall-of-fame pictures show those who conquered it all!”

A Neighbourhood Spot for Great Food & Friends

Locally-sourced, freshly ground beef and pork products from the best butcher in the area mean that
Extreme Eatery’s quality is top-notch. Now, the original food truck is a catering hub for private events,
office parties, bonspiels, and golf tournaments.

Whether you’re looking for a classic burger with all the fixings, or perfect fish tacos for a summer beach
picnic, Extreme Eatery’s got you covered.

Plan to stop in for lunch or dinner this week. Or gather the gang for an Eggs Benny brunch on the
weekend. Extreme Eatery’s patio is easy to spot on Morrison Avenue, across from The Beach Club. Get
ready for a meal to remember. As the Extreme Eatery team promises, “You’re going to need a napkin!”
