“Gone here many times”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2011

Having lived in the same neighborhood as this place for several years, I've visited this place frequently.

I'll start with the good; The onion rings in this place are excellent & are served crispy and crunchy without a hint of grease. After hours, there is readily available parking in the lot next to the restaurant and you can usually almost always get a seat.

The not so good: I've had probably 50 burgers in this place and very honestly, none of them were great. I would frequent the place because they were a step up from a fast food place & they were a local institution. The burgers are good & they are of reasonable value just none of them were ever great. I get the feeling the patties are not homemade & that might be something they should look at doing. I'm sure folks would pay 50 cents more for a higher quality hand made patty. It just might take that good burger to the level of great. Perhaps I'm expecting too much but in a city built around meat, one would think it could have great burgers.

That said, they're a better choice than your typical fast food burger and a single, with fries and a drink comes in around 6.50. A decent value in Calgary where eating out usually = a minimum of $10 bucks.

“Great Veggie Burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2011

Ate here one night for dinner, when traveling for business. One of the better veggie burgers I've had. The place is just a small strip mall joint, but had a great number of burger choices with meat as well.
