Kona burger at Original Joe's is great.

VJ's offers the best chance for a late night stabbing of any of the top burger joints...
Thats why and when we frequented it....of course everything is delicious at 1:30 AM when your high and a had some brewskis....lol!!

When I lived in the city going to college in the 90's many a time after a night of wobbly pops at Zaxx or The A we would order from Mr.Bones, cheap and did the job, haha
Ah yes...the 3 for 1 deal I remember..

I thought I?d change the menu up and talk about my ALL TIME favourite burger and fries takeout stand ever....VJs at 170 Main Street.  When I lived in the Peg in the early 70s we used to go there after the bars shut down as it was the only place open after 1AM.   Randy Bachman still goes there and it?s rated 4.5 stars out of 5 if you want a giant sized feast burger and home cut fries and a thick chocolate shake.   I?m amazed it?s still open 50 years later....definitely need to go there next time I?m in the Peg....maybe take in some good live blues then go for a VJ special!

In the 60?s and early 70?s it was the original Juniors. Greatest dog in town, chili sauce, mustard, onions, a spike of dill pickle, and European wiener. All the Greek places had very similar fare, Red Top etc. Today they have gone to normal wienrs😝. Still measure the worth of a bag of fries against JV/Junions. The closest I have found is 5 Guys in Mesa AZ. On a Saturday nite you could sit in your car and watch for the ?ladies of the nite? from the Fort Gary Hotel come over for lunch. Come on Henoc make up your mind!

Yes....you?re correct it was Juniors back then and they had the Fat Boy burger which was epic back then.....as my somewhat ititinerant memory recalls...lol

Personally, I find Santa Lucia's 30" pizza the best deal for playoff parties, which I expect we'll see if Muamba signs.  The only problem is getting a 32" pizza box through a 30" door frame, or into the back of a 2 door hatchback.

I was in Winnipeg my first time (I am from Dallas Tex - SMU Grad). A frat buddy of mine actually moved to Winnipeg to start his business up and after I was mustered out of the Army (Yes I did Vietnam before I came to Canada) - he invited me up just to visit. He took his date and a blind date for me (who by the way turns out to be my wife of 47 years in Sept) to Juniors on Main street (I think it was on main street - by the CN rail station). Had my first Juniors and fries - Never looked back! My all time favorite (that and the original Half Moon in Lock port).

Great Memories! Living now in Calgary have never found anything close to Juniors!

This topic is excellent....I'm gonna be back to the peg later this month, and I love reading about where to eat while there....especially from longtime locals. And I didn't want to start another thread asking so this worked out perfect lol...

While I agree that Calgary lacks non chain burger joints for the most part, Peter's (in Calgary, the Red Deer one is not so hot) does a pretty good job.

To offset that void, there's always Tubby Dog.  Amazing hot dogs and vintage arcade games.

Then there's Big Sky BBQ Pit in Okotoks.  Meat heaven.  Puts Big Ts to shame, and I love Big Ts.
