What Happened to The Double Decker Bus?
We spent 5 years on Innes Road at Golfland, then construction began. It was very hard for us to continue at that space and maintain the high quality of cleansiness that we demand for our guests.
Where did we go?
When We left Orleans, we decided to go on tour with Poutine Feast Ontario winning multiple awards accross the provence. Due to Covid-19 we were unable to travel, and chose to take this opportunity to come back to Orleans. Our goal is to have enough support, that we can stay in Orleans and expand our business to also go on tour with Poutine Feast Ontario for 2021
Do you still offer the same great menu?
Due to a smaller foot print (Hence the name Jr's Upper Deck Express) We are unable to supply all the great items we are known for, but it gave us the opportunity also try a few other exiting things such as Atlantic Salmon, Shrimp, Cauliflower Mash and even Rice. But not to worry, we still have our famous CORNDOGS and our HALIFAX DONAIR items.
Is the Staff still knowledgable?
As many guests will admit to, we had a great staff over the years, very knowlegable, kind, attentive, clean. We are proud to say that 75% of our staff been with us for 5 years or more. So even with openning up late in the season, we assure you that our staff is as friendly as Covid allows us to be.
How long does it take for my Food?
We never have Burgers just waiting for you to buy. We always make our proteins fresh to order. This is why we have some of the best burgers in Ottawa. We cook them to 165 degrees to ensure thier juciness. This can take 6-8 Minutes.
Some of our appitizers will be made inhouse in batches, then we will freeze them for future use. This can take 3-4 Minutes.
We also have french fries pre-blanched so they too only take 2-3 Minutes.
When you're busy, does your food quality go down?
We like to use our statistics to make informed decsions on how to staff for all shifts. We take in concideration, Time of the Month, Date of the Week, Time of the day, Weather and which local activities may also effect our steadiness. So no matter how busy we are, our goal is to be stocked and staffed to handle almost any crowd.
What are we known For?
Since we started, it was very important to us to bring the same great foods you expect from a "Chip Truck" and do it with a healthy twist. We pride ourselves with catering to people with dietary preferences such as Celiac and take extreme care to avoid cross contamination. In 2019 we introduced Keto friendly options.
