Best burger I've had in a long time! Can't beat the staff either. Friendly and attentive even when super busy.

Cool vibe. The food was good. Waitress Sonia was excellent. She recognized that we had two hungry kids, and she brought out the kids' food first which was greatly appreciated. We'd definitely recommend Kooky Canuck.

Sonia offered excellent service and a lot of delicious food. Try the Montreal hotdogs, cucumber salad and some of the best fries. Be careful. A large beer is large.

We had a great time at this place. Burgers were good and fries were excellent. Portion sizes are actually large enough for two.

Decided to visit after reading the reviews. The burgers are really good, but is was the poultine that was great. That is a Canadian dish of french fries and cheese curds smothered in gravy. Was so much better than it sounds. Service was friendly and quick. Great lunch stop during the heat of the day.

I know, people say there's no such thing as Canadian Cuisine, and I don't disagree on a national basis. However, there is definitely regional fare in Canada, and being a Maritimer, I have to say the Kooky Canuck is a hit for me. You can rarely, if ever, get a good donair outside of Atlantic Canada, so when I received... More

Neat little bar/restaurant near Beale St. Nice selection of burgers, and other items. Catfish plate was also wonderful. Not an "Oh My Gosh, Gotta Go" place, but very nice if you're looking to try something different. Right next to the Peabody Hotel. Good selection of kids menu items also. Would definitely visit again to try a different burger!!

The food is good. Nothing fancy but good food. The service can be hit or miss. Give them a try just don't be in a hurry when you do.
