    I recall their apps being good and their burgers being mediocre. Has that changed?

    Iíve found them to be very consistent, so if you didnít like their burgers that likely hasnít changed.

    I ordered out several days ago.
    Imo, nothing special. It's a canteen with a storefront that has great seating and good hours.

    Prices are decent, food is good when it's hot, and has a good selection of sauces.

    The Joseph's fries are pretty good. But once the burgers became too cold they were relatively unedible.

    Personally if I'm going to go for a burger in CH it's probably bouf n bun.
    While I agree with this mostly. I would say if you're just looking for a burger and don't want to pay the b&b prices it's pretty solid.

    It's a solid burger for a solid price.

    Side note eating upstairs is definitely better then sitting in prime sandwich.


    Oh and seeing shmuly b there definitely gives me great memories of parksville canteen. Always greeted with a smile and warm welcome

    That has to be a store employee, no? Wouldn't it behoove you to name the store?

    An outsider would have enough time to play with the register to get a skimmer on without being noticed?

    Something is off. Skimmers don't record pin numbers which is a must when using EBT

    As you can see in the videos that Dan posted, the skimmers go over the pin pad as well.
