This burger joint is going downhill. Have been coming here since it opened. The last few visits I have noticed a change in service and food quality. This time the server seemed like she didn't want to be there. She and the kitchens messed up...More

Our family loves eating at this restaurant. This family run business is one of our favourite restaurants. The kids love the variety of shakes. The variety of burgers are interesting. You will leave satisfied.

We went last night (8 of us aged 15-82) for supper at Dick's to celebrate our eldest 19th birthday. The cheeseburger is topped with 'real' cheese and is delicious! Two of our kids had the Kangaroo burger and thought it was very good. The fries...More

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....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...More
