You get massive burgers & shakes here I got the 1/4 pounder here & was by far the biggest 1/4 pounder I have ever seen was juicy with lots of flavor & had a hard time finishing it. I also glad I got a milk shake got the banana cause it was on special for $10 the regular price was... More

Haha! So happy you enjoyed my food . Yes my shakes are a bit pricey but we use fruit and not syrup and they are a whopping 1 litre! Big enough to share . The banana is regularly $16 not $20. The strawberry shakes are $20 because I drive 120km to pick them myself . A long and tedious process... More

Excellent, excellent, excellent. Food was fantastic. Service was good and Blondie herself was straight up. I had the 1/4 lb burger with real cheddar and bacon with fried onions and at the servers suggestion a half single order of fries. The burger was huge, the bun fresh, the grilled onions sweet. The fries had that hard to get light in... More

I had never been, but when I heard it was for sale I went with some friends. To be honest, we were a bit leery as it doesn't look like much from the outside and I heard that the owner was scary. It's much nicer inside, tons of pictures and very homey. The waitress was great and the owner was... More

Blondies is a Winnipeg hole in the wall with world class reputation. The owner is a larger than life character serving larger than life burgers and fries. The portions are enough to feed a herd of water buffalo! On top of that the food is extremely good at a reasonable price given the quantities. Not sure what scale she's using... More

The first time I visited Sandie (the owner) was over 25 years ago. What an experience! Nothing has changed in the intervening years, except the walls have more rules. This is a Winnipeg Institution. Those of you old enough to remember Seinfeld will remember the Soup N@#!. This is sort of the same, but mostly in good humour!

Haha! What a fabulous review ! Thank you so very much. I hreaztly appreciate it. I've mellowed a lot over the years . Rules are mostly jokes. Most people love them . You're absolutely right , one must have a sense of humour in order to enjoy the experience at Blondies . Once again , I thank you so much... More

Blondies can be so entertaining... The food is made to order, hamburgers and fries are amazing. The writings on the walls and all the rules and regulations... so entertaining, and Blondie... she's a hoot.... A must try..

This is complete fiction. I am the red head owner who is always there so your husband and his crew could never have been to Blondies. I'm the only one who has ever cooked there. I am not on the floor or serving customers . I'm in the kitchen , so how I could be rude to people is beyond... More
