Thanks to a picture of Onion Rings that popped up in my Facebook feed, I started thinking - where can you go in the YYC for some good onion rings?
Now, to set the record straight, I'm not really referring to your standard battered rings, I'm looking for something more along the lines of A&W's rings - breaded, not battered. This, imo, makes them much tastier & far less greasy. Although I'm not against trying some run of the mill rings if they're to die for.
The best onion rings on the planet are served at Dick's Dairy Dip in Ottawa. If you're ever in the Ottawa area, I highly recommend grabbing a burger & some rings there.
Denny's serves the only decent rings I've tried in Calgary so far. Fatburger's rings are gross, and most pubs serve the standard battered fare. I am aware of the monster, pancake-battered rings at Tubby Dog, but that place scares me.
