Flipp'n Burgers - Calgary (Kensington)

Flippin' Burgers is at 330 10th Street NW in the location formerly occupied by Crepe Avenue (between the dollar store and the head shop).
They have been open for about a week or less.
It is a narrow space - about 15 seats - two booths (of 2) on one side; three tables on a long bench on the other and three seats at the front window. The orange/red walls are covered with old photographs - going for a diner vibe. Seems to be a family-run operation - owner on the burger plating/finishing station; spouse/partner greeting; son(?) of the owner on the cash register and someone else on the grill.
Menu is basically burgers, fries and shakes.
Burgers is local grain-fed beef - 6 oz patties (there is a veggie burger option).
Home-cut fries; yam fries available and frozen onion rings.

I ordered a bacon cheese burger with a small fry.
Lots of topping options - put on onions, lettuce, mayo and ketchup - just basic toppings for me.
Nice juicy burger - bun was soft without falling apart, cheddar cheese.
Small fries are pretty big (size of a pint carton) maybe a little underdone and the BBQ seasoning was not to my taste - I will get them to leave it off next time..
$13 - $8 cheese burger, $2 bacon add-on, $2.25 small fries.

Right now I would rate it as 3.5 out of 5. I liked the burger and it is early days still so I would give it another shot sometime.
