Jumbo Burger

Jumbo Burger (pretty much the whole place)
Jumbo Burger is physically opposite to northeast of the city, located on the west end of the Junction. We headed across the city for a glimpse of the CP Holiday Train, and followed our noses to Jumbo Burger. A mom and pop burger joint straight out of the ’60s, they have their fair share of die-hard fans, as evidenced by (commenters online and) a steady stream of customers while we where there.

Jumbo Burger’s Menu
Their burger offerings are fairly standard, with burgers, cheeseburgers and banquet (bacon & cheese) burgers. They also offer a breakfast menu, fish and chips, and chicken dinners.

Jumbo’s Cheeseburger 3.95
We went with the double burger and cheeseburger, with a double order of onion rings. The fluffy buns were toasted on the griddle, and slathered with your choice of condiments (ketchup, mustard, relish, tomatoes, pickles and onion). Topped with a slice of yellow cheese, my cheeseburger was juicy, and everything you’d expect from a greasy spoon burger.

Jumbo’s Onion Rings 2.95
The real highlight of the meal was the onion rings – large, crunchy rings that shattered as you took a bite. Their batter was free of the lumps too often found in onion rings – turning them into strange savoury donuts. I would strongly recommend you get a drink to go with these rings (we had a mental lapse and didn’t), as you will need it afterwards.

Do you like orange?
I would go back to Jumbo Burger if I was in the area, definitely choosing them over the McDonald’s in the Walmart around the corner. However, it’s probably not the best idea to have that many onion rings more than once a month!
