This time I tried the Philly Steak sandwich. Steak was cooked perfectly and the flavour was good. Sandwich lacked cheese which in my opinion is an intregal part of a good Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. Would not order it again. I'll stick with the burgers. The rest of the group enjoyed there burgers and fries. Although the messed up the... More

A retro, 50's style diner with delicious home-made, hamburgers and generous milkshakes. A family favourite (although there is no kids menu)

We had a Groupon and fully enjoyed our meal. Burger with rings and veggie burger and fries. Nice to have a home-made burger (both meat and veggie). Veggie burger was very substantial and bean-based, no "fake meat". Hubby loved his milkshake. We'll be back!

1st time there and look at the menu, this place carry some special burgers such as OSTRICH, KANGAROO, ALBERTA BISON. Even didn't try any of those, the place was worth to go back, especially their big "rotating" Milkshakes icon inside and the old black disk in the wall, just feel went back into 80s.

Read the reviews and checked the hours. Drove over to find it closed even though hours on door showed as closing two hours later. A note on the door would have been nice.

Decided to drop in last evening with my wife and son for a burger, glad we did!! Son had Kangaroo burger, very moist and tasted flavourful, I had the spicy Blue Cheese burger, also flavourful, and my wife really enjoyed the Chili, full of meat and kick!

The décor reminds you a little of the 50s.... happy vibe of another era! The food was great! Simple but cooked perfectly. Loved the Club!

I have only been to Dick's twice and although they have a pretty extensive menu I cannot get past the Alberta Bison Burger because it is just so good. With my burger I had the Half Fries & Onion Rings Combo. The fries were fine but put against the onion rings they did not stand a chance because those onion... More

We stopped by on a whim looking for some quick takeout to carry on with our trip. We were not disappointed. It took about 10 minutes, which is good for fresh cooked meals to go. The decor was awesome, a sense of the 50s and 60s with the same era of music playing in the back ground. The burgers and... More
