REGRUB (RE:GRUB) is a small eatery along the Beltline that is quite famous for their extreme milkshakes with crazy toppings!
So, this restaurant’s name is puzzling to me. Their website title is #REGRUB, they refer to themselves as RE:GRUB, the restaurant says RE:GЯUB, and their Facebook page says REGRUB. WHICH IS IT??
We came to REGRUB on a Monday evening to eat an early dinner, and it wasn’t too busy at the time. Perhaps because it was a Monday, or that it was still winter, or that people were still at work?
I ordered the Veggievore burger (veggie burger), and my friends ordered the Recessions Buster burger & salted caramel popcorn milkshake. That’s the only vegan item on the menu (besides the fries). My burger was just okay, but also not terrible; I’ve tasted much better veggie burgers in Calgary.
While they are famous for their milkshakes, some of my other friends (who have been here before) agree that the milkshakes could be a bit too much. Either physically too much or just too much sweetness in one drink.
REGRUB is a casual eatery, and is a place to quickly catch your burger and milkshake. Because there aren’t a lot of seating, I wouldn’t say it’s not a place to hang out, but it’s a great eatery for a casual date or a quick lunch with friends. The decor is awesome though! I love the industrial-inspired furniture and decorations!
If you want to experience an extreme milkshake or just craving some classic burgers & fries, come to REGRUB. Otherwise, the food is mediocre at best. You can get better (and cheaper) burgers and fries elsewhere.
COST: Moderate. Prices at RE:GRUB won’t break the bank, but it could add up, especially if you go for a combo. For a milkshake, expect to pay ~$5 – $9. For the burgers, prices vary between $7 – $16.
TASTE: Okay. My Veggievore burger was so-so, and definitely not my favourite. My friend, however, enjoyed her Recession Buster burger very much! The milkshakes are huge and quite filling (and diabetic) even by themselves.
ACCESSIBILITY: Moderate. REGRUB is located along 11th Avenue on the Beltline. Buses frequent the area, and it is about ~8 minutes by foot from The Core Shopping Centre. Parking is limited to curbside, so be wary.
ATMOSPHERE: Nice. The restaurant isn’t very big, but there are a lot of seating. It can be quite packed at peak times (such as weekends & happy hour). During the summer months, the patio is also open. The decor is industrial/hipster-inspired, which I totally dig!
SERVICE: 8/10. The servers and cashiers are friendly, but service might slow down if the restaurant is packed.
