Burgers
Our first restaurant & bar opened in Marda Loop, Calgary, & even way back in 1997, it was comfortable, accessible & affordable. From the very beginning, Original Joe’s fell in step with exactly what it has always been about. A down-to-earth, down the street experience for all.

We never take ourselves too seriously. We love good food experienced in the company of true friends, in an atmosphere that fits us like a well-worn pair of jeans. It feels real here & that’s just fine by us.
No pretense. No frou-frou. Just craft beers, approachable wines & tried-and-true cocktails. All served up with the kind of fresh-made comfort food you crave again & again. To this day we still hand cut our fries, serve most of our entrées with two sides & pour our own Original Joe’s beer. So, come sit at our bar without having to lowers yours.

When we had entered the restaurant the energy of the host was just off with us. He didn’t greet us and told us to move to the side as other customers left. And then just stood there and we all naturally took out our vaccination cards. One of my friends didn’t have his ID on him but he had a picture of it. We had used the picture for our prior events and the host was being very rude and condescending towards us. We didn’t end up dining there but even if he had let us, I don’t think we would’ve due to the initial interaction we received.

Very good dinner, we had a rather large group and everyone was served well and promptly even though our server had a lot of tables. Great food and cold drinks!
