The Karen’s Diner Calgary Experience Is Here (& It’s Terrible)!

You Won’t Feel Too Welcome At Karen’s Diner 

Are you ready for the most fun you’ve had eating burgers, ever? Karen’s Diner Calgary is coming soon, and you’re going to love this interactive dining experience. Or… maybe you won’t love it, but you sure will remember it!

Basically, Karen’s Diner is a popup restaurant in the style of a classic old-school diner. However, there’s something distinct about it: The servers are all rude Karens. They’ll roll their eyes at you, make fun of what you order, and even taunt you in front of your friends.

It’s all a part of the Karen’s Diner and the rude staff experience. And yes, it will likely be sold out because people will not only pay for – but line up for – an experience with service that treats them horribly. Fun!

Can You Actually Eat At The Diner?

Yes, you can actually eat at Karen’s Diner in Calgary and at all of their locations. They promise “great food and rude service” and they’re very consistent with that delivery.

You’re going to enjoy the names they’ve come up with as well. The Basic Karen is Wagyu Beef with Swiss cheese on a burger, and the “I Want to See The Manager” is two burger patties with lots of cheese, bacon, and manager-mustard sauce.

All in all, the food looks delicious. But don’t tell them that; they’ll make fun of you for seeming too eager.

Make sure to stop by for all the fun you didn’t know you wanted. Why is it to appealing to have servers be rude to you? We’re not exactly sure, but we’re going to line up for it just like everybody else.

Average vibes only is our kinda place.
