I love diners and when I saw there was a 50’s inspired diner not far from me in Edmonton, Alberta I knew I had to keep this on my radar and make it there the first opportunity we had. A few weeks ago our friends that we travel with said they’d love to do a day-trip roadtrip with us and I asked them if Rockin Robyns Diner would be something they’re interested in and they were just as excited as I was! We got here and the place was still busy as it should be just after their lunch rush, and we waited about 20-25 minutes for the table. Not too bad as we can keep ourselves entertained!
I knew I had to eat a burger, and I burger I got! I tried their Great Canadian Burger which came out the size of my head! The patty was thick and juicy and very well seasoned! It was as though we were eating a mini-meatloaf in a burger. My burger was topped with back bacon, cheddar, cheese curds and baconnaise! It wasn’t as messy as you’d think it would be but it was massive and delicious! Our friends also devoured some sort of burgers as well.
We had also ordered some old style Strawberry Milkshakes because for my history and growning up adventures, I always had a strawberry milkshake. I think everyone just enjoys one with me as that’s our thing to do now. The milkshake was very delicious, still a thick and rich one but not as thick as I would have expected. The strawberry flavour was awesome and of course it was very pretty!
The only oddball order at our table was the Chicken and Waffles and I must say that was really good! The chicken was crispy on the outside and very tender and juicy on the inside. The sauce they used was perfect with an amazing waffle to accompany the chicken!
Overall, it was a fantastic stop to Rockin Robyn’s and we had a lot of fun there! The food was amzing, the portions sizes were huge, and the service was top-notch! We really wanted a piece of pie, even if it was one slice for all 4 of us to share.. however we were already rolling around as we were stuffed. We said next time, we’ll come back just for pie and coffee!
