“Great burgers and a gluten free option that doesn't suck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Small place, just off the main drag. This is your classic gourmet burger place, pricey but good.
If options are your thing, they have pretty much every type of topping save Peanut Butter.
Gluten free patty option as well as a rice-type bun that is pretty close to a normal bun.

“Wasted dinner out - beware of GARLIC IN the burgers”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

This place was recommended to us by a local. It's SMALL inside, but seems like a very happening place. We had a nice server who really took her time helping us decide which local beer to try.
When it came to ordering burgers, we talked with her in great detail, asking if they put a lot of salt/spices on their burgers and asking her to have them omit it for us. My husband asked, point blank, do they infuse the meat with any seasonings? "No" was the answer, so we ordered 2 burgers and 2 sides of sweet potato fries (again, asked for no seasoning).
We waited 40 minutes for the burgers to arrive and before the plate even hit the table, I smelled garlic. We took one bite and confirmed that yes, these things had garlic all the way through them. Well, we can't stand garlic flavoring on a burger, and had TRIED to find out beforehand how they made their burgers, so there we were....tired from a day of hiking and too late to go anywhere else. We ate the fries and left. They did remove the charge for the burgers (not the fries), but we left there feeling pissed that we had wasted one of our 3 nights out at this place.

“Best poutine in Banff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

There's another place in town that claims to have the best poutine west of Montreal and I thought it was pretty good. But in my opinion, Eddie Burger & Bar has the best poutine in Banff. Highly recommend this place if you're looking for a good selection of beer and some killer poutine! Didn't try a burger but if it's anything like the poutine, you can't go wrong.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Walked by several times while in town without much interest in getting "a burger"...finally dove in the next-to-last evening we were in town strictly due to convenience (close to parking garage). Wow! We were pleasantly surprised at the creative variety and quality of the burger. Quite possibly the best burger I've ever eaten.

“Not as good as expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Three of us went to Eddies for lunch. It is pretty small but we were lucky enough to get a table in the back. Some of the seats looked very uncomfortable. I ordered one of their burger specials which was very good and my grand-daughter enjoyed her meal. My husband ordered a plain burger. It was almost black and very tough, he ate about half but could not finish it. Service was good. They should make sure the food is not burnt before serving it. Would not return.
