My sister saw this episode on TV and since Calgary is very close to me she told me that if I didn't search for, find this truck and eat its burgers she would find me and kill me in my sleep. This is Alley Burger's website. I went. I ate. I shall now rave. I take my sister's need to eat vicariously through me very seriously.

Not cheese slices. Cheese curds.

Back: I told you so
We were unable to eat everything we ordered. I bring the lad to hoover up the things I can't finish but even he wasn't up to the task. I am ashamed to say that the weight of the bag after depositing the food we couldn't eat was about the same weight as a typical McDonald's meal. How could we have known their double burger was so HUGE? It was a little embarrassing but we will know for next time. If you would like to go and haven't been yet, a single patty is plenty and a small order of fries is more than enough for two people. The pop is good, but pricey, so you can further streamline your cost by bringing your own beverage.
Condiments were interesting. Ketchup and vinegar for the fries but in addition, there were shakers of sea salt, Portuguese spice, and an eye catching Truffle salt and pepper combination. Today's special add ons were sauteed mushrooms and avocado slices. Tempting but I knew my burger was going to be too tall already.
While we were in the line up, a chatty gentleman recommended this donut place and specifically raved about the carrot cake donut. So why not?
