Faith in Humanity Restored

I was traveling with my two children out of Edmonton to visit my mom. We took a break in a town called Westlock. We stopped at a place called Ramzis. I ordered burgers, fries and drinks and when it was time to pay I realized I left my wallet at home. I was nervous and embarrassed so I just froze and said cancel that I have no money on me.

As I was leaving the owner came out and said to me he’s making my order on the house. He has kids and he wouldn’t like that happening to him. My eyes got teary and I just thanked him. On a side note those were the best mushroom burgers I have ever eaten! He even put in some milkshakes for the kids as a treat! Thanks again!

    1. It’s a regular thing for them :). My debit/credit card doesn’t work sometimes, and they’re always telling me not to worry and pay later. The thing is, they usually forget it happened, and I have to remind them. They have huge hearts.

  1. We never stop long enough as we pass through from Slave lake, but next time we will make the effort to stop by Ramzies. (Life is too short and THIS just made me think about it ) thanks for the great post!

  2. Ramzi’s has been the greatest business I’ve ever known, they always go out of their way to help everyone in any way! When Ramzi himself left for the city we were all worried that we were losing a vital part of our community, and have been gratified to find that the model continues! And yes, the BEST burgers(pizza burger’s to die for!) And the BEST donairs! And so many flavors of soft-serve!
    Mmm-mmm-mmmm!

  3. I remember when they first opened. I was in high school. More than 37 years ago! The ultimate is the Salisbury Burger with cheese! Of course toasted coconut dipped soft ice cream is the perfect dessert too.

  4. I used to work for Ramzi. His entire family are the most amazing people! He makes the best food and I can honestly say he is the best boss I have ever had! He is a wonderful human being and I am forever grateful to have worked for him and his wonderful wife.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing. Always looking for a place to stop for lunch after a Sunday drive. We will definitely be stopping there in the near future. What better restaurant to support than one who supports it’s clients.

  6. I stop there often for the best pizza burgers around and they have the best ice cream in town. One time I stopped there and didn’t have to pay as someone was paying forward. They often sponsored Barry’s demo car and many other teams. Very good people.

  7. He also has a restaurant in Barrhead and will make custom orders upon request, my parents know him quite well. I have met him a few times and he is a really nice person.

    1. No but now I’m really craving one of his pizza burgers! May have to go home for Christmas this year and get one! Ramzi’s is great, have always loved their food!

  8. I bet Ramzi has done this a hundred times over the years. I loved this place as a kid. Such an amazing part of a small community. It’s worth the drive out to westlock just for the food.
