New handheld destination Saucy Burger is slated to take over a prominent location on Calgary’s 17th Ave. This concept will be opening in the former address of Nellie’s Cosmic Cafe, which closed last spring after 20 years of business. Brought to us by Chef Michael Dekker (SAIT, Rouge), Saucy Burger is promising patrons a family-friendly burger menu.

The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys is opening its first Calgary location soon, and that means folks in YYC will finally get a taste of the iconic brand’s delicious eats. The food cart turned fast-food chain originated in NYC in the ’90s and has since amassed a cult-like following. Its menu is popular for sandwiches and platters packed with chicken and/or gyro.
