White Spot Calgary

After reading this post on Whitespot Vancouver, I had to try their new-ish location in Calgary on 32nd Ave NE. I must admit that I've never eaten at White Spot in my life. I went there for lunch with some girls from work. We were put off at first b/c there was NO WHERE to park. The parking lot is big but it butts up to the parking for the Shaw building so I'm not sure all the cars were actually there for White Spot. The hostess actually came out and helped us figure out where to park (we ended up in front of a "Do not park" sign in front of the dumpsters.

Two of us ordered the "Legendar" hamburger platter with fries and coleslaw and one of us ordered the chicken quesedilla with caesar salad on the side. I really enjoyed my hamburger. I was afraid it would be too much b/c it comes with two patties but it turned out just right. The Triple O sauce really impressed me and the burger was great. The fries were good but not outstanding & the slaw tasted funny. I would go back for the food BUT as it seems with all Calgary restaurants these days the services SUCKED! We got there at 12:15 & our food did not arrive until right at 1pm. They were busy but this is a bit long to wait during lunch. Our server disappeared after dropping off our food not to be seen again for 15 refills, no "how was it", nothing. If I go back again for lunch, I will arrive much earlier to find parking & hopefully to get a bit faster service.
