Business lunch means little to no time, and every one of our orders was late, or incorrect, or both. Also, the large waitress kept trying to squeeze behind me to deliver food to others as she felt it was a shortcut path when really it...More

Yep Black Betty ...would visit again. Burger is solid. Good selection of beers. Seems they bake their own buns. But a quality burger (and seemingly nice menu) all around.

Heard good things about this place, but was warned about the service. And it was true. The poor service took away from the great burgers. There are simply too many places in Calgary to get a burger to waste it on a place where the...More

Been here a few times, and every time is about the same. Nothing really bad but nothing improves. Food is ok and I always find my service to be lack luster and slow (as if I am interrupting the other tables).
