Good eats. The breakfast is nice and their burgers and beef dips are good gut filling food. Diner atmosphere is good for the Sun morning hangover cure. The place could use a good steam cleaning but it is not overly disturbing. They only take cash so make sure to hit the ATM before dining. Our family will keep coming to this diner

Continuing our quest for the best burger in the lower mainland my better half and I went down to Uli’s to sample their offerings. Our expectations were high as we had read an excellent review and always drive past their full restaurant. We decided to sit inside as it was a little brisk and the first thing I noticed when we sat down was that my arm stuck to the table. Our waitress was friendly and quickly supplied us with a smile, menus and a glass of water. After peeling my arm off the table we both looked around and noticed the general lack of cleaning FOH. A bit concerned we took a peek in the kitchen and were pleasantly surprised that the kitchen was very well maintained. Food: We both ordered the burger (that’s what we came for), we were not offered an option for fries or salad. I decided to pay the extra 3 dollars for the home cure bacon. The food was delivered in a timely manner and looked good. Upon inspection I realized that my burger was sans bacon. I nibbled on the frites while waiting for the bacon to arrive. I looked up and my bh face was not looking impressed, her first bite of the burger was unimpressive. When I had my first bite I had to agree. The much hyped air dried sirloin was flavorless with a fat content that was too low. The bacon was under cooked and flavorless. The Chala bun was over sweet and the smoked cheddar was the same you can buy at any grocery store. The only saving grace was the onions, mayo, and frites. Before leaving my better half went to the washroom and was not impressed, it was unisex and unclean. Working in high end restaurants for 20 years we are very forgiving with small problems with food and service. This was the poorest dining experience we have had in White Rock and we will not be returning.
