The quest for burger and fry excellence continues

In my never ending quest for great burgers and fries, I paid a visit to Muiser's Fries on Main Street in Airdrie (a short drive from where I work). Their chip trailer (it's a huge modern trailer, like the kind you'd store a race car in, not a truck or a bus) just opened (for the season) yesterday and I had to see what the product was like.

I ordered a cheeseburger and fries. The burger was OK. Not bad, not great, just OK. It certainly doesn't measure up to Rocky's in Calgary. The fries were a huge disappointment though. Way overcooked, they were dark brown, very dry and crispy on the outside and devoid of any moistness or flavour on the inside - it was cooked right out of them. Again, these folks need to visit Rocky's to see how fries should be done.

Darlene was worried that I would pay too many visits to this place when she heard I had found it. She has nothing to worry about. For me, it was not worthy of repeat business. I hope other folks have a better experience.

Have you tried Boogies Burgers yet? Edmonton Trail, a few blocks south of 16th Ave. I've been curious about it for years, but I'm not really a burger person and haven't tried.

We actually have tried Boogie's. It was about 3 years ago or so. Nothing special.
