Seriously: no. I’m so sick of the no-effort pucks of despair that they serve at basically every Canadian chain restaurant like Turtle Jack’s.
How? How does this happen? How can a restaurant serve a hamburger that’s so unambiguously bad that anyone with a mouth and functional tastebuds will immediately identify it as the off-putting garbage that it is?
That’s a legitimate question and I’d like someone at Turtle Jack’s to answer it. Also, Turtle Jack’s? While you’re here? Get out of here with that horrific slop. Get all the way out and never come back.
The burger at Turtle Jack’s is incredibly dry and dense, and it’s an absolute bummer to eat. It made me sadder and sadder with each mouthful. The beefy flavour was almost nonexistent, with a vaguely leftovery funk that makes me think they might be precooking the patties and reheating them to order. It’s bad. Bad bad bad bad bad.
I feel no need to discuss it further, because it’s a piece of garbage that’s clearly made by people with the cynical belief that they can serve whatever the hell garbage they want and people will eat it. If you order it, you’re proving them right. Please don’t do that. I ate it so you don’t have to.
The fries were slightly better (because there’s really nowhere to go but up from that burger), but they were the boringest of boring frozen fries.
