Edmonton Diners

thanks guys. Ended up going to Urban Diner twice. My son loved it so much he wanted to go back. First night he had the mac n cheese and I had the meatloaf sandwich with soup. I would recommend both. The next day we went for breakfast. He hd 18 of those little pancakesand i had the bannana stuffed french toast. Both were very good. Next time I come up I will have to try a few more new places. I would like to try Bubbas as I do real BBQ myself.

I am heading to edmonton for the weekend and will be staying at the Hilton express on Calgary Trail. I am looking for some good diner type places. I heard Urban Diner, Blue Plate, Rick and alices and Tasty Toms may be good. Your thoughts on these places or any other places me and my 15 year old boy may enjoy. do you have any good food trucks in your city. Or how about a good perogie place?

Marriot Hotel

thanks for the suggestions. Your right the hotel is in Richmond. The tournament will be in Burnaby. I was thinking of going to granville for fish and chips. It may be tacky touristy but I did want to try a Japa dog. I would also like to go to vj but the family is not much on Indian food. I been to Turkey before so it might be nice to try some kabobs again

Ruth Chris

I am going for dinner at Ruth Chris. I hear they smother their steaks with melted butter. Is this true ? I know butters ad flavor but do their steaks need it? How do you prefer your steaks there?

King Crab in Calgary

If you are on a budget you can buy some and cook it up your self. It is so easy. With the money you save you can spend it on a nice cake or something.

5 Guys Burgers in Calgary?

I am with slingshotz in that they have to improve their bun. Next time I will order less toppings as my burger was a bit too messy for my liking and basically fell apart before I could finish it

I totally agree with you nonlinear but I have 2 kids that play sports at a competitive level and I was just looking for a quick meal that was better than frozen pizza. Schedules change so quickly I need something real quick

night out

I have the opportunity for a night out and can spend up to $1000.00 There will 6 adults and 4 kids in the 13 years old range. The options are totally open. It could be a night out at the circus, live theater, personal chef at home, fancy restaurant, almost anything. There are a lot of very high end restaurants but I have a concern that they may not be enjoyable for kids. Heve fun with this and you can think out of the box Thanks

Vancouver

I am heading out to Burnaby this weekend as my boy is playing hockey in the Challenge cup.
We will be staying at the Sheraton airport but will have games at various arenas. Looking for some ideas for lunch or dinner. Nothing fancy or expensive and no chains. Is there any place that is a must see place that you can't leave Vancouver without trying. ? I am open to any ethnic group
thanks

Just family. My boy wants Hooters but I would be in the dog house with his Mom and Sister. I will have to wait for Dad and son night out and swear to keep that one to our selves. As my boy says there is more to a night than food. Tubby dog is fine but I would like to step it up a bit.
