I loved the poutine and I usually don't like poutine, and oddly, every time I try to type poutine, it comes out "pouting", which is what I usually do when I eat it. But the fries managed to stand up to the gravy and not become mushy and the gravy was delicious. The cheese was different and more melted than normal cheese curds, and so technically this wasn't authentic poutine, which was maybe why I liked it.

The burger wasn't quite as good as other times I've had it, but as others said, it was overcooked, however, it was still very beefy tasting, maybe because we had them leave off the carmelized onion/mushrooms. Is it my favorite burger? No, but it's still a very good burger, especially for a neighborhood place...plus the fries rock! I also enjoyed my flight of lagers and the tasting I had of Bill and Eden's whiskey flights.

On a side note, I had breakfast here a while back and it was delicious.

Only one choice for me...Loretta's in South Park!

I will check with them Thursday night and make sure they can handle a group of our size.

So, they do not take reservations, and they made a point of saying that it would probably just be the bartender and the cook, so the service might not be the quickest, (they note that on their menu as well,) but they would love to see us.

I let them know about how many people to expect and that we would try to give them a call with as accurate as we could give the day of. No problems.

So when is good for everyone?

Of those, I can do 18, 21, 25, 28, but the 28th would be by far the best, if other people can make that one happen...

The 28th works for me! I can also do the 21st and 26th.

I've got it on my calendar. What time would be best to go? The earliest I'd be able to get there would be 6:30...
