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, which is made with Spring Creek Beef, cheddar cheese, double smoked bacon, bbq short rib, crispy onions, garlic aioli, butter lettuce, tomato, and pickle with a side of fries. As you can tell by the picture below, it’s massive! A hint for you when you eat this is place a pile of fries below your eating surface and while you eat the burger, let all the juicy goodness and sauces fall onto the fries. Mmmmmm. This burger was delicious and I will order this over and over. I did feel my heart skip a beat when I was done, but so worth it.
This visit we also ordered an appetizer which was recommended by the waitress, Steak Bites, which was marinated sirloin bites with rosemary beer mustard. Tasty dish and the mustard dip was outstanding.
The second visit consisted of three appetizers, two orders of wings, hot and maple chipotle, great wings, great flavours. The third appy was the Meat Lovers Flat Bread which were all great starters for our group. The waitress also came by with a Chef’s creation, Chicken Won Tons, one thing I can say is, please put this on the menu!
My main dish this visit was recommended by Dobson’s on YYC’s Best Eats Facebook Page, in which they claimed to have amazing fish and chips. So I had to have it. I’m always hesitant when it comes to Fish and Chips, I’m always worried about over battering which just ruins a fish and chip meal for me. When Mr. D’s Fish & Chips sat in front of me I thought that it was going to be one of those times. I was surprisingly shocked, it was super light, the fish was cooked perfect and the tartar sauce was just perfect. I would not hesitate to order this again, and yes Dobson’s it was really good.
If you haven’t been to Dobson’s, be sure to put it on your list of places to try. They welcome everybody and even kids. I believe I sat on the lounge side which is the backside of the restaurant. The service both times were excellent and atmosphere is trendy yet casual. Oh and the Strawberry Gin drinks we were consuming were awesome.
