I have eaten a ton of real Canadian food and this place did not deliver...where did all that icky sweet sauce come from on my GYRO....better yet, why did you even serve a Gyro? The catfish was so awful that my dining companion barely made it home and then came all that gastric distress...who wanted to revisit regurgitated fish I... More

We were three and we had a great lunch there! I personally discovered some Canadian specialties (the "Poutine burger" was definitely something!) Service was good, the price was more than correct and the desert excellent! The place is clean. Would come back again.

As a continuing part of eating at "Man vs Food" restaurants (minus the insane challenges), when in Memphis we visited the Kooky Canuck. We started off with an obligatory serving of poutine. For those of you Philistines who do not know what this is, think fries smothered in gravy and cheese. Bloody brilliant!! For main, sorry entree as you Americans... More

The food here was simply amazing. I figured to go along with the song 'Walking in Memphis' I'd try eating a Catfish for the first time, and Kooky Canucks definitely delivered! Words cannot describe how amazing the food was at this restaurant. That combined with the friendly and speedy service alongside a great atmosphere provides an overall awesome dining experience.

After a warm day in Memphis, we wanted a restaurant near to our hotel and so we chose this one. We started with a plate of nachos. My wife and son then had burgers whilst I chose a steak. The food was ok not bad but not particularly memorable. My recollection from the restaurant were the mooses on the wall... More

I had the catfish with vegetables and it was obvious the entire meal had been prepared from frozen... if i wanted a frozen meal i would have gone and got one from Walmart. The beers were nice and large which was a bonus, the desert was yummy. I do not regret going here i just wouldn't return again.

We just went here for dinner after visiting Graceland. My husband and I were very thirsty so we ordered 2 beers. When the glasses came we could not believe our eyes. Incredible!! We all ordered different types of burgers and they were all very good. For an appetizer we did try the fried pickles. We have seen them on every... More

Burgers that are HUGE and delicious and at a really good price in a casual atmosphere just a block off Beale Street in downtown Memphis. Ribs ? Don't need no stinkin' ribs with the Kooky Canuck around. Just don't try to eat the 7-pound burger alone. Can't be done by a sane person. Enjoy !

Ice Cream and more ice cream it never ends but that's the fun of finding all the different yummies tucked into the ice cream. We had 4 little girls that enjoyed digging their spoons into 18 scoops of ice cream and getting their mouths full of candy, rice crispy, syrup, cool whip and more in each bite. This is a... More
