Burgers

Our first restaurant & bar opened in Marda Loop, Calgary, & even way back in 1997, it was comfortable, accessible & affordable. From the very beginning, OJ’s fell in step with exactly what it has always been about. A down-to-earth, down the street experience for all. We never take ourselves too seriously. We love good food experienced in the company of true friends, in an atmosphere that fits us like a well-worn pair of jeans. It feels real here & that’s just fine by us. No pretense. No frou-frou. Just craft beers, approachable wines & tried-and-true cocktails. All served up with the kind of fresh-made comfort food you crave again & again. To this day we still hand cut our fries, serve most of our entrées with two sides & pour our own OJ’s beer. So, come sit at our bar without having to lowers yours.

My burger was awesome, though the fries tasted if they had been dried in old oil. My partner's fish tacos were a plus and we both enjoyed the caesar salads. It was very quiet, having come in at the end of the lunch rush, but that was fine with us. Yes, we will be back.

We were taken to a seat meant for 4 to 5 when he could of put us in a smaller table. The drinks they served were cold so that's good news. I ordered the poutine and my wife ordered a pulled pork sandwich. The fries were a little undercooked and not crispy at all. I was nice about everything and maybe should of stepped up.

They called 1 hour and 19 minutes before we were due to arrive telling us they were closed. I suspect we were canceled to clear the way for. a Grey Cup party. The call had kitchen noises in the background as i was told they were closed.

If the restaurant is busy, then don’t let customers book a reservation. This is 2019, not 1999, if you are going to use technology, then use it properly. People depend on processes that use app tech to work properly and be acknowledged as a regular part of doing business.

The server graciously removed the cost of that meal from our bill. I had the Long Island tacos which were wonderful.

I would rate it a top 5 for me. The serving plate was a bit large for the amount though. Lettuce wrap with chicken wasn't anything too amazing. Probably won't order that again. I would definitely go back though and have different dishes.

However, the salad was wilted and starting to go brown. In retrospect, I should have said something. The burger was great though. As far as ambiance goes, it was ok for a sports bars. We had a gift card and chose Original Joe's based on their menu and reservation availability, but I'm not a big fan of huge TV screens and sports. I did like that it had oversize photos of local architecture. That was cool!
