Sweet Queen Burgers

Reviewed By seetheworld2014 - Calgary, Canada

We were expecting above average food as some of the TA reviews seemed to indicate from their experiences. However, after waiting for well over half an hour for a burger and some combo of very greasy fried appetizers, it was mediocre at best. The only reason it's getting an average rating is because the young lady taking the orders was very friendly and apologetic about how long the man was taking to cook our order. There were only a couple of other orders ahead of ours, the place was not busy at all, and he was the only one cooking and extremely slow at it.

Wild Thyme Cafe

Reviewed By Tony R - Edmonton, Canada

Stopped in the town of Nanton on our way to Fernie for a bite and noticed an Italian flag in front of this smaller looking cafe/restaurant. To our surprise, very cozy, clean and a great menu. The owner/cook came out and spoke with us while his daughter and grandson helped out. The food came out timely, fresh and flavourful. Bought a fresh local pie on the way out, definitely would go back and recommend to anyone driving through.

Ken's Restaurant

Reviewed By millie2007 - Shediac, Canada

The restaurant has a Canadian and Chinese Menu. We ordered the ginger beef. It was deep fried and covered in a sugary, syrup style ginger flavored sauce. No real ginger to be found. The stir fried veggies were decent. The spring roll was greasy. No thanks.

Big D's Burger Shack

Reviewed By Camping_Girl - Calgary, Canada

It's a shame that the quality and quantity at this establishment has gone downhill so badly under its new ownership. They no longer use locally sourced organic beef for their burgers, and their prices are through the roof. I don't mind paying $7 for a burger but to be charged another $6 or $7 for an order of fries or onion rings is outrageous. It should not cost $35 for two people to eat at a restaurant where you have to walk up to a window to order.

Subway

Reviewed By Travelchick1983 - High River, Canada

We have been going to this Subway for a few years and it is consistently good. They are friendly, quick and don't charge extra if you ask for extra tomatoes on your Sandwich.

Stuthornes on Main

Reviewed By springbanktraveller - Callgary

Such a friendly greeting by the owner. She chatted while she was serving..... A small café serving coffee, tea etc with the most mouth watering Morning Glory muffins. And beverages served in good China cups, saucers and plates. Home made sandwiches, wraps, and some of the best chili in town, fruit pies. Well worth a visit.

Zephyr Drive Inn

Reviewed By clemsalcedo - Edmonton, Canada

Came here hungry before we were to begin an event Saturday evening. Given the economy these days, best to support the local business. Conveniently situated on QE2 south as you pass thru town, it's hard to miss.. an older building, plenty of signs advertising burgers, ice cream, etc. a typical burger/shake joint. Placed an order for cheeseburger combos with fries. They would be cooked to order, so a 7-10 minute wait was no big deal for me, especially since it was cook to order, it would be good hot food. The cheeseburgers were wrapped nicely, a little messy, but they were very very good and hit the spot nicely. Fries were great, as they weren't salted heavily, just plain, so we could customize as we wished. Pretty basic menu, very good food that hit the spot at a reasonable price as well. I'll have to try the ice cream or the Italian Soda next time I pass through.
