Holy :swear: I’m only wanting to purchase a burger. I think I will continue making my own and using the bbq.

Place belongs in the "Cultural District" not on Powick Road. [icon_lol2.gif]

By the time you add something to drink, tip and taxes, it'll be close to forty bucks for a burger. Not my thing.

I've never even heard of that place. :200:
I'm sure for the Gourmet it's good but I have looked at their menu and for someone who prefers a "Normal" Burger it's not the place to go.
If by normal you mean processed and preservatives then yes they are not normal. Don't take my word for it, try it for yourself you won't be disappointed.

They are on par with the price compared to most pubs and restaurants in Kelowna. It's not a place I go to often but it is a nice treat once or twice a year.

Why are people lamenting another franchise that has closed? And why is the innuendo that people should feel sorry for the owner? Profit is earned - not a right. If you fail at business then that's on the owner. They should have paid better attention in their college business admin classes.

^^ Uhuh because we all know that surviving a pandemic that's now in its fourth wave, is taught in college business admin classes. :cuss:

Just another example of how out of touch some are with reality.

The reality of what? :cuss: backward fawning by the chamber of commerce or rotary class over businesses and tax evasion? I hope that Trudeau and the NDP close even more tax loopholes and enforce more against tax shenanigans. The entrepreneur messiah complex is so 2015. Let it go. I'll just keep going to the old standby burger joint of Red Robin. They know how to weather shifts in the economy and stay open.

That's a drag i really liked that place every once in a while, though for less money could've done with less fries.

My Wifes Bday was on Tuesday and we went downtown with friends to her fav restaurant.

I had a burger for $20 and it was the worst burger I have had in a long time. Even a bad McD's is better.

I'm glad she enjoyed her dinner because mine was crap. Don't ever order a burger from an Irish Pub!

I will wait till they have been open for awhile. I read a few reviews and I think they need some time to work out the bugs.

All the burgers are between 15-20 dollars? Just like the majority of sit-down restaurants in Kelowna. If it makes you feel any better they do give you free house-made chips to start lol
