Briggs Kitchen & Bar – Best Burger Ever

I know I say this a lot about having “The Best Burger Ever” but seriously it really was.  I had the 100% chuck burger topped with Thick Bacon, Blue Cheese and a Fried Egg on their signature egg bun.  The fries where great, but on my first bite of this fantastic burger, I forgot I even had fries.  All I could do was wrap my mouth around this magnificent sandwich while pointing at my burger to gesture how great it was to my...

Dishcrawl – Exploring YYC neighborhoods one plate at a time

We were very excited to be part of great experience called DishcrawlYYC, and like the name says, a Food Crawl, yes you heard it right.  You get to experience food at 4 different restaurants all within walking distance plus drink specials!  You don’t know the meeting location until you are emailed it 48 hours prior to the event and the rest is kept a secret.  The first event that DishcrawlYYC did, SOLD OUT and the next event is a...

Dobson’s Restaurant & Bar

It’s been a long time coming but we’ve finally made it to Dobson’s.  It’s located off of McLeod Trail near Chinook Centre next to the Keg.  This review is over the course of two visits as the first time was really good and there was much more we wanted to try. I’ve always have the weakness for big honking burgers and there it was on the menu shining with a halo, the Smoke Stack Burger, weighing in at $18,...

Fergus & Bix – Great Pub Grub

I’ve been to Fergus and Bix a few times over in West Springs, I found it by accident and anytime I’m close to it I try and stop in for a bite. They do have another location in Marda Loop which I believe they opened sometime last year. The pub is very comfortable, plenty of tables and just a good place to hang out for some food and drinks. I find the menu has an excellent variety, the food is great and the prices are decent...

Garrison Pub for the Garrison Burger

We have a friend who loves eating as much as we do who has recommended we try Garrison Pub.  Every time he goes there he texts us a pic of this crazy delicious looking burger.  On Wednesday Fuzzy and I got a chance to head over there to meet one of our contributing writers, Guy.  I’ve posed the question before about Garrison Pub and have heard nothing but good things about this place. It really is a pub, nothing special on the...

On to the B-Side Bistro

B Side is a new Bistro, formerly known as the “lounge side” of the Bears-Den.  Located at 254028 Bearspaw Rd. in Calgary’s NW (plenty of free parking), this relaxed, but classy bistro, features a lounge area and lighter menu. Accompanied by my wife and daughter, we had reservation for 7pm on a Saturday night, so as to take advantage of the live entertainment offered on the weekend.  The atmosphere was casual, comfortable, but with an...
