RE:GRUB Burger Bar Take II

You may have read my post on Re:Grub burger bar here, but at that time I hadn’t actually tried the food. I knew about it’s mission and I was excited…but for what, I wasn’t yet sure.

Since then, I’ve attended and got down to business. And Cole – well, he can’t stay away.

We met up after work one evening and headed in to check it out. Picking up a menu, we looked through the ten or so options, debating over which ones we should choose first. During this search, we never once said – ew, that doesn’t sound good…

In the end, we settled on a batch of house-cooked fries, the Eureka burger, and the Clubhouse. I wasn’t totally feeling like a burger, so the option to have a turkey burger really seemed to excite me at the moment.

We grabbed a spot in the sun and sipped on our cool orange cream soda while we waited for our orders.

re:grub burger bar review gourmet burgers calgary In no time we were greeted with a plate full of fries and happily dug in. They’re your classic house cut fry – salty and crunchy.

re:grub burger bar review gourmet burgers calgary If you’re more of a foodie, apparently the asiago covered fries are just to die for (tested by Cole before making this claim). But this time, I just felt like something simple.

re:grub burger bar review gourmet burgers calgary We ate and ate until there weren’t any left – and then, our burgers arrived.

House made brioche buns that were incredibly soft. Lean house-ground meat patties dripping with juice. Fresh vegetables that crunch when you take a bite. And cheese – warm and melting down the sides.

re:grub burger bar review gourmet burgers calgaryThe Eureka – a juicy grassfed sirloin patty, bacon, house-made sauce, lettuce, Gouda, tomato relish, and fried shallots.

re:grub burger bar review gourmet burgers calgary And the Clubhouse – thick chewy bacon, warm melted cheddar cheese, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, house made sauce – and of course, a juicy turkey burger.

These guys require two hands.
re:grub burger bar review gourmet burgers calgary The patties are incredibly fresh and tender. You can really tell that the ingredients are local and house made. Cole has been telling everyone that they’re the best burgers in town – and that’s saying something.

We didn’t pick a milkshake this time, but I have a feeling the peanut butter or the nanaimo bar are going to become quick faves.

The experience was great and the service was friendly. The prices are a little high (about $14 for a burger, $3 for a regular fry) but honestly, what do you expect when everything is made in-house. Besides, a lot of toppings that would normally cost you extra (fried onions, guac, avocado, cheese, bacon) are already included. In my mind, the burgers are worth the price – and honestly, big enough for two – with a big batch of fries on the side.

Perfect for that post-hangover meal, a lazy evening, or a bite with friends.
re:grub burger bar review gourmet burgers calgary We even headed back for the Dude Ranch…

re:grub burger bar review gourmet burgers calgary And the smoke and fire…

re:grub burger bar review gourmet burgers calgaryThese burgers are works of art and definitely truly fit the category of gourmet. Pop on by and support the local business. It’s tucked in on 11th Ave – perfect for a downtown working lunch. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather spend another $3 here then end up with some crappy food court lunch that leaves me hungry an hour later.

Hit it up and let me know what you think? Best burger in town?

  1. Nicholas and I went there two nights ago and were enthralled by the Smoke and Fire burger, definitely a good option for lazy weeknights!
