We had lunch on a saturday, it was busy. The atmosphere is warm. Staff is really friendly. The menu is long, lots to choose from. They mainly have burgers, few sandwiches and salads. It took a long time for the orders to arrive. The mains have 8 oz beef and the lunch burgers have 4. I was some what dissapointed... More

I used to be a HUGE fan of this place. They used to have around 100 different types of burgers, all laid out in neat categories. Sadly, now I am only a fan because they shrunk this menu to a dismal size in comparison. They still make some awesome creations though. My latest visit involved a burger with deep fried... More

I went to the works last night in Guelph, I have been before. This time I decided to try a chicken burger with a Cesar salad. My boyfriend had a sexy burger and he ordered coleslaw on the side. So we get our drinks and 30 minutes later when the waiter brought food to the table beside us, I saw... More

I had the Pony beef burger medium rare and it was awesome! I have been here once before and the place is always busy. Beef is fresh ground so having it on the rare side is perfectly fine and very tasty.

Great burgers, a bit pricey but you get quality meat and a very unique setting. Worth the money. Get a burger you normally wouldnt try..you wont regret it!

My husband and I had a veggie burger with crisscross fries. It was a bit expensive but very juicy and delicious. A fun treat, however I wouldn't go there too often.

Loved the 'railroad chic' atmosphere. It does something to me. I love how they send drinks in measuring cups. I get two cups of liquid. I can measure to make sure im mot getting ripped off.

Had a really good experience, great service and the wait fairly short considering there were a number of people waiting. I did find it a bit expensive but will definitely return!

We have been to this branch a number of times and have always enjoyed the burgers. However, our recent visit was a big disappointment with the fries looking and tasting pathetic - it appeared that they were from the bottom of the frier as they were all small and dark. The burger was also dry but the toppings were great.... More
