If you’ve driven along Edmonds, you’ll probably recall seeing the iconic neon sign that currently points to the Lost in the 50’s Drive-in. But the current drive-in wasn’t always underneath the heritage sign… the 20 ft tall curved arrow used to point to the Tomahawk Drive-in that occupied the spot in 1961. Read the rest of this entry
Burger Burger – no, I didn’t stutter. That’s the name of a hole-in-the-wall burger joint in New West… well, at least a former hole-in-the-wall burger joint since the place closed up recently. Read the rest of this entry
Joey Bellevue wasn’t our original plan for dinner on the first night of our road trip. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with Joey… we’ve always enjoyed the Joey locations back home in Vancouver. But after hearing the long waits at a number of other nearby restaurants, we were just getting hungry and wanted anything to eat. Read the rest of this entry
Vegas, baby! Some of you that have been reading our blog may remember that we were in Vegas last December too. We weren’t planning on coming back to Vegas so soon but we couldn’t pass on the great price. Read the rest of this entry
Many moons ago, while working in the New West area, I recall co-workers routinely talking about Burger Heaven. Back then, the stories were invariably the same… someone got sick but, for some reason, they kept going back. Not wanting to get sick myself, I stayed clear of this place for years.

I miss the Wendy’s tv commercials with founder Dave Thomas. I think ever since he passed on, Wendy’s has been going downhill. They used to have a number of different salad options at a reasonable price but the selection has gotten worse over time (and more expensive)… I know… who goes to a fast food joint for a salad? Still, sometimes you’re in a rush and you don’t have a salad spinner on you. Read the rest of this entry
We drive by it all the time but the Earls on Lougheed Hwy. in Burnaby always skips our mind… partly because it’s a little hidden and tucked in a light commercial park close to a Home Depot. Read the rest of this entry
This is our last post on Las Vegas for a while and it’s only fitting that we end this trip at the Carl’s Jr. located at McCarran Airport. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve actually eaten at this Burnaby Fatburger location before… ironically enough, while taking a first aid course at the nearby St. Johns Ambulance location. If there was anything that could cause an instant heart attack it has to be chili cheese fries.
