Grew up in Ottawa but never went to Mr J's until today, like 12 years after I moved away. I saw the pace in a scene of the terrific local-set movie River City Panic recently. And I liked it a lot. Everything I like about Ottawa. Friendly, humble, real people. Inexpensive food. I had a hotdog and a gyro and they were just fine. Had a Chicago hotdog yesterday at a bar about half a block from Wrigley Field and theirs wasn't any better. Gyro here was a tiny bit smaller than I am used to, but with the hotdog, I didn't leave hungry. Both of those and a root beer was like $8-something. Not bad. A old friend walked in while I was there and told me he likes the eggs/chorizo.
