Kooky Canuck Restaurant Review

: This Canadian-themed diner offers regular-size versions of its signature burger, as well as plenty of authentic cuisine, such as poutine (fries with cheese curds and gravy), Canadian bacon sliders, and maple bread pudding. And then there’s the not-so-Canadian items such as barbecue egg rolls and honey-drenched sweet potato fries. The interior of Kooky Canuck is designed to look like a lodge, and taxidermy of all varieties inhabits the wooden log cabin-style walls. If vegetarians can ignore the taxidermy, they’ll enjoy the char-grilled veggie burger. For dessert, don’t miss the deep-dish cookie or brownie à la mode. If you’re feeding a crowd (or a really hungry person), the Avalanche offers 18 scoops of ice cream piled high with toppings. The wine list is small, but Kooky Canuck offers a selection of Canadian beers and other premium domestics, as well as cocktails.
