Re: Burger Joint in Arcadia/ Monrovia Area,Posted by Ollie on March 21, 2006 at 18:34:07

Well, I made the mistake of going with the suggestion of a few of you chowhounds "about" The Canadian Cafe. I should have seen the warning sign when there was only one customer @ 12:30 lunch rush hour.

Now I know Canadians are all about Hockey, but is it necessary to turn a 1/2 lb. burger into a hockey puck? I got the "Canadian Burger" medium, expecting it to be juicy, w/Canadian fries. Took them almost 20 min with one customer in the place to bring out my order w/ one customer in the whole joint, no exageration. The burger was charred into a 1/2 lb Hockey Puck.The Canadian fries with their version of gravy was tasteles & bland. The server offered to redo the burger but I was already starved & if it was going to take them another 20 min. forget it! I wish I would have seen the other burger joint suggestions and gone to another place. In regard to burgers, Canadian Cafe sucks the big hockey puck! There's a reason they only had one customer during lunch, what was I thinking? Blinded by hunger I guess & got slapped by a 1/2 lb hockey puck. Live & learn.
