Best Burger joints in Calgary

At the confluence of the confluence of the Bow River and the Elbow River lies the top rated city of Calgary. This city has outranked all other cities globally in Human Index Development, cleanliness, pa capita income and literacy levels.

The city is located in the Canadian province of Alberta, about 50 miles from the Canadian Rockies. It is home to about 1.2 million people and is part of the Calgary–Edmonton Corridor. The city hosted the 1988 winter Olympics.
