“Noisy but nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2010

Burgers were pretty good and the fries were great. The background noise was a bit much though.

“Small Place but Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2010

I had the Red White and Blue Burger. This was a pretty small place to eat but it worked quite well for an original burger joint in Banff. The drinks are a little pricy but if you want some excellent food try it out

“Great Burgers. I had the Eddie classic...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2010 via mobile

Great Burgers. I had the Eddie classic. Comes with half side which is plenty of food for 13.

Alchol is a bit pricy but the Trash can is delecious and they let you keep the cup!

“Only if you like OVERCOOKED burgers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2010

If this were not a "burger bar" I would not be slamming it. As a bar or as a hangout spot, it looked clean and cool. But I came for a burger and this review is based on that. I come to Banff each year was excited about this place. Eddie's seemed like the ticket. Small, kind of cool ambiance - but its a burger bar and they only cook WELL DONE burgers. For those of us who like to chose how the a burger is actually cooked, from rare, medium rare, to medium, this is not your place. The only have one type - overcooked, super well done. This killed the burger for me.

If you like well done burgers in terms of being cooked so much that all juices are gone, then this is your place. If you want a drink, cool place, lots of choices. If you want a Veggie burger, my wife got one and was happy. But I can't recommend a burger bar that does burgers only 1 way. Sorry.

“Fun Bar - For Locals - Terrible overprice burgers - for anyone.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2010

As a local, I was excited to hear of the Eddie Burger Bar opening.

Unique concept, great location, decent owners and a hangout where locals can get good food.

Boy was I wrong. I have eaten there on 4 separate occassions. 4 times my burgers were charred beyond recognition. It felt like I was biting into a hockey puck of charcoal.

The buns are definitely frozen as they lack any sort of flavour. Cardboard texture? Check!

The fries are okay, but lack consistency. Not great for $5.

Yes they charge extra for fries.

$15-$22 for a BURGER + $5 for fries turns into a $20+ burg.

Do yourself a fLavour and dine elsewhere. Want a burger? Checkout Bruno's.
