The search for the beef starts, with Rocky’s Burger Bus. Located on the corner of 11st and 46ave SE, this family owned and operated burger joint caters to the busy on the go working man. I decided to try the Rocky’s Special, a single cheese burger and fries with soda for $9.00. The burger comes loaded with onions and relish and the beef paddy is about an inch thick. My first bite confirmed that I had found the beef. The old fashion cut fries where ample and complimented the hand formed beef paddy. The Rocky’s Burger is a good bang for your buck. Which seems to be a rare find in Calgary today? I definitely recommend this burger as a must try. In fact I plan on visiting Rocky’s Burgers again, this time I going for the double burger.
Well everybody is raving about Boogie’s Burgers on Edmonton Trail. So off I went to find this quaint little burger joint, during the lunch hour. Boogie Burger was packed with patrons and the music was turned up loud and the place was hopping. Surprisingly enough the service was fairly quick and I was served with in twenty minutes. I ordered the triple burger with onion rings and a coke, with a three dollar tip the cost brought me just over $17.00 for my meal. The Bun on the burger was large fluffy and wonderful, the meat paddies where so thin the meat had troubles staying together. My question is simple; “where’s the beef?” The onion rings where quite typical of a dinner or burger joint. I must admit I liked the atmosphere of this dingy little burger joint, the music and the service. Simply I was just not impressed with the size of the meat. In closing, if you’re looking for a trendy little burger joint and your part vegetarian then this is the place for you.
