Though they still have a great tiger shrimp burger I'd highly recommend and a portabello mushroom burger I'd highly recommend too. The elk meat is great too. I'm pretty sure they have bison as well.

And a lot of more 'regular' options like Santa Fe styled burgers, blue cheese burgers, chicken burgers, etc.
Yeah unfortunately they were notorious for screwing up peoples orders because the menu was so big. They had to cut the menu down to prevent so many mistakes and before they started to get a bad reputation.

Aside from wing night, I think Brewster's has the most pathetic menu of any restaurant in town. I like their beer and wings so I go regularly...plus there is one by my house which makes it convenient, but man I can't get into any of their food.

I personally like Rocky's and Boogies, although I have been finding Rocky's a bit too much on the well-done side.

I remember there was something about the burger at Laurier Lounge downtown that caught Warren Buffet's eye when he was in town last year or something.

Red Robins is also good for a family type place to eat. I don't know if there is one in Calgary, and if its anything like the ones in BC.

I miss this place! The gooey cheese sticks and a Banzai Burger were so tasty! I believe there is on in Vancouver still...if it wasn't burned down.

There is still one in Kelowna, which is pretty good. They have one called a Royale burger or something with a fried egg that is great.

Best.

Burger.

5 fries and a 3 oz lamb burger, probably cost you $25.00 in NYC.

Quality over quantity.

I much prefer restaurants that focus on serving the best possible food rather than the biggest portion sizes.

Best burger that I've had the pleasure of eating in recent memory.

Oh, and Five Guys is really good as well.
The place is now called "Stonehill". Thanks for the heads up, will try a burger instead of the steak which isnt too bad either.

I miss fuddruckers. Although pump cheese can be nasty it was my favorite burger growing up. Anytime I visit family in Saskatoon I insist that we have at least one meal there.

Oh, I understand that point. I just hate ordering something new and getting 3 scallops and a tablespoon of turnip puree and 3 grilled asparagus for $25.00. (It's like ordering from a child's menu).

This is not a meal.

I recently had the Mediterranean burger at Moxies and it was surprisingly excellent.

Nice, make sure you take pictures! I've never seen one bigger than about 50 oz.

I detoured through Great Falls a couple years back on a road trip for the sole reason of tracking down the Fuddruckers. Time well spent for sure.

Eating a good part of a mostly raw patty then spending 1 night vomiting and a few days off work says "I don't miss Fuddruckers at all"..
