The Whole Nine Yards when he wrote “True Canadian means lots of mayo (Bruce Willis would hate it). Bun was too big, but good and fresh.” Stephanie, our local expert on street food exclaimed “Beautiful day for a food truck! Great deal for the combo. More than enough for me.”
Don suggested we try the European next time so I guess he’s still a hot dog guy at heart.

The WPD offers a wide selection of burgers with all the standards plus a few that needed explaining:
- The basic burgers come with mustard, ketchup and relish with cheese\bacon options.
- The Chili Burger has chili sauce on it.
- The Whistle Burger has chili, cheese, double bacon and onions (no lettuce or tomato).
- The Banquet Burger has lettuce, tomato, cheese and bacon.
- The Fatboy is a banquet minus the bacon.
- The Chili Box Burger is a chili burger buried in chili.
Finally, a couple of burgerettes had the bacon burger. “The patty looked like a frozen burger patty and kind of tasted like one as well but the bacon was nice and crispy” said Mireille. Dani wrote “Patty looks like it was preformed and frozen. It tastes okay, but no noticeable spicing. This was just a run-of-the-mill burger.”
A wonderful feature of the WPD is that it shares the parking lot with a DQ and as everyone knows, burgers should always be followed up with ice-cream. A few folks opted for a strawberry cheesecake flavoured mini-Blizzard. All’s well, that ends well!

this video for pronunciation tip). It was hot and action packed and we had great drink service from Stephanie, but it was quickly evident we weren’t going to get enough seats together. Luckily more forward scouts arrived on bicycles and let us know the front patio was all but empty and in shade. The only downside, it was self-service.
My bacon-mushroom burger was messy – just the way I like it! The big slabs of tomato slid around and there was lots of sauce. Les noted “Good bun holds it all together!” Sandy wrote “I've recently realized that the best food is "in balance" without overwhelming flavours. This burger, even with bacon and mushrooms, had this "balance" - but was underwhelming just the same. My tomato was a little under ripe & was distracting.”

Adirondack Burger - $9.75
Enough to make it messy, but not so much you needed a change of clothes afterwards. I also quite enjoyed the mess of fried onions. It’s a delicious, filling, burger.
The Adirondack was served wrapped in foil-paper with an exaggerated cocktail stick to hold the assembly together.
miniature golf course John had professionally designed and built. It’s challenging, with plenty of water features (and hazards) and some tricky breaks. It also shows that they’re big Bombers and Jets fans.
They snowbird for the winter, and this spring returned with a crazy looking fry-guy, his girlfriend and a burger buddy.
If this all sounds like heaven to you, you may want to consider being married at Geppetto’s because John also performs marriages.
