delux for dad

Yesterday was Father's Day, so my dad, Trev and I spent the day together.  We decided to go to Speeder's Go Karts for the afternoon (to avoid the rain) but we needed lunch before we went.  I had a craving for french fries in a mini shopping cart, so we headed to Delux Burger Bar

My dad and I both tried this month's celebrity chef burger: the 'copper n' blue' chicken club: a cajun spiced chicken breast topped with bacon, blue cheese, tomato and lettuce...and a crunchy, delicious pickle.  The burger was great, I loved all the flavours (especially the blue cheese) and the chicken was juicy and perfectly cooked.  I managed to finish the whole thing, and still had room for crispy & fresh fries with gravy and spiced mayo.  No, I didn't eat them all myself...

Trev ordered an *off menu* special...the 'poutine burger': a beef burger topped with, you guessed it, fries, cheese curds and gravy.  It looked pretty good but I didn't get a taste :)  If you want to give it a try, ask your server (who might have to ask the manager and kitchen) and it should work out just fine.

Delux is a great place to go for upscale (and super tasty) versions of diner classics, with menu items like hot dogs, popcorn shrimp, salads and grilled cheese sandwiches.  They also make milkshakes with locally made Pinocchio's ice cream. The dessert menu had fresh made mini donuts and banana split (to name a few)...I think I may have to pass on the fries next time so I have room to try one!
