Sodas Gourmet Burgers & Fountain Shoppe

Theres a new burger joint in town. Check them out in Rutland beside Little Caesars

Sodas Gourmet Burgers & Fountain Shoppe takes you back to the time of the 40's and 50's serving up amazing gourmet burgers and old school sodas. Sodas concept is to bring fun back in a retro style restaurant where people can sit back and enjoy the atmosphere while visiting with friends and family. Sodas wants to bring back the "wow" factor and introduce old style burgers that were made with pickles or deep frying burgers and stuffing of the cheese. What a great idea! You can walk in, meet with the staff and enjoy the "people" experience when the days of the 40's and 50's burger joint was so much about hospitality and warmth in a very small establishment. Welcome to Kelowna's Newest Rock and Roll Burger Joint!

$5.50 Burgers and Old Fashioned Sodas with "free" refills. I'll see you there!
