If you like off the beat type hamburgers and other foods this is the place for you. Right in the heart of Westboro it's a great place to go with friends or family to eat.

Took my sister to the one in Kanata. Very mediocre burger and fries. Overpriced. Won't go back. There are tons of better places around.

My daughter and I visited during Winterlude. The place was hopping but we got seated within 10 minutes. The waitress was super-friendly. Basically, you can get any combination imaginable on a burger. Being out of towners, we tried the elk burgers. We had chosen this place because it had gluten free options and were not disappointed. The buns were some... More

WOW Bring your appetite and be hungry. Large portions. Good food you get your money's worth. If you love burgers this is the place to go. Onion rings are awesome. We keep going back it's that good

We loved their hamburgers in Kingston, but we were disappointed at this original location of theirs. Maybe it was the cook for that day. The hamburger was over cooked and dry. Hate dry hamburgers, which should always be moist and greasy.

You can find any type of burger here that you could ever imagine and then some. The food is awesome. You could even pay for the crappy tire burger with Canadian tire money. The only downside is the seating is far too close to other customers. Make sure you go in the off period.
