Burgers
Our first restaurant & bar opened in Marda Loop, Calgary, & even way back in 1997, it was comfortable, accessible & affordable. From the very beginning, OJ’s fell in step with exactly what it has always been about. A down-to-earth, down the street experience for all.

We never take ourselves too seriously. We love good food experienced in the company of true friends, in an atmosphere that fits us like a well-worn pair of jeans. It feels real here & that’s just fine by us.

No pretense. No frou-frou. Just craft beers, approachable wines & tried-and-true cocktails. All served up with the kind of fresh-made comfort food you crave again & again. To this day we still hand cut our fries, serve most of our entrées with two sides & pour our own OJ’s beer. So, come sit at our bar without having to lower yours.

Although it was still good the Teriyaki rice bowl has changed and not for the good. Can’t put my finger on exactly what, be it the rice or sauce but it’s not as good as it used to be. The service and everything else is always 100%. They are folllowing EVERY protocol put it place due to the pandemic to the letter yet still make it an enjoyable evening out.

Thank you so much for the constructive feedback. We are truly sorry our nachos didn't impress you. We are going to improve our nachos with more red onion, red pepper, and slivered onions. We want every dish to exceed expectations in quality and value. Please come in and let us know if our improvements have had the desired effect.
