Why We Love it Already
Class Clown is nostalgic, welcoming and cozy, with a coolness factor of 10. The commitment and passion for creating a standout burger joint starts with Alberta-raised, AAA Benchmark Black Angus ground in-house daily, and extends through weekly picks of quirky natural wines and soft-serve sundaes with house-made toppings. The California Classic burger is a must-order with mustard-grilled patties, American cheese and the usual toppings in a locally sourced, toasted and buttered potato bun. Another instant favourite is the Nashville Hot Cod, a fried-fish sandwich with hot-chicken flavours. Battered cod is dipped in spiced oil, then a secret-recipe dry spice mix, then topped with American cheese, tartar sauce, jalapeños, pickled onion and vinegar slaw — perfect when paired with an ice-cold cider and share of golden crinkle-cut fries smothered with cheese sauce and crumbled Hawkins Cheezies.
