Burger Baron: The Ultimate Burger Experience

June 13, 2023.

Burger Baron? Burger Barn? Burger Bar? How about all three?! If you’re looking for a unique Alberta way to experience some history while being well fed along the way, take a tour to three historic burger spots found right here in the Leduc Region. You could visit one spot at a time over the summer or, do what we did, and hit them all in a single day! You will indulge in a classic, diner burger, but each location will be just a little unique with their signature flavour. The story behind these iconic places is worth the read—discover the unlikely beginnings of these locally owned and operated spots. If you’re more of a movie-goer, there is an amazing documentary about an immigrant success story in the Prairies based on the Burger Baron’s franchise on CBC Gem, Absolutely Canadian ‘The Last Baron.’ Learn more about how the Burger Baron name is used by several fast-food restaurants in western Canada.
