Fun but can be pricey

We have eaten here on several occasions, it is one of my kids favorites. The selections of toppings are fantastic, and we have come up with some amazing combinations. It can get a bit pricey though depending on what you add on. We love eating in here, we have ordered out, this can be a bit time... read more

After all the hype and the impressive menus, I was expecting something spectacular. What we received was mediocre at best as far as the burgers were concerned, and the poutine was awful, soggy, and a huge disappointment. The prices are outrageous for the quality of food received. I won't be going back.

first time back after 2 years, and it is the same as it was last time. Average burgers, way overpriced. Buns were dry and crumbly and the burger was overcooked. I (and probably you) can make better burgers at home. Won't be back for another 2 years. This place survives on tourists in the summer who only go there once,... More

Ate here in Aug. Burgers are very pricey. Expect in the neighbourhood of $45-50 for burgers fries and a pop for two people. Waited over 40mins for our food and in the end was not all that impressed at all. Avg taste, cold toppings, greasy fries.

Too long of a wait and too high of a cost for a burger and coke! Once I finally received my burger, it definitely wasn't worth the wait. I would not recommend this place. I'm sad I chose to try it.

I have come here a couple times over the years. Burger 55 is a very cool atmosphere. You order using a piece of paper and you have countless options for your burger! You can create your own, or order something that they recommend. You get to pick your own seats and you can sit inside or outside of the building.... More

I have heard rave reviews about Burger 55 and know many people who love it. The day I ate there I ordered a burger with bacon and fries. My first mouthful was very salty. I thought it was the bacon as bacon can be very salty. I removed the bacon from the burger thinking this would solve it but it... More

I had to bring my own pencil to place my order. The pencils were very dull and difficult to use. I keep one in my glove box of my car so i am ready for a quick and efficient order when i go to this place. Why do i need a pencil, you ask? I will reply. You must fill... More
