I love everything about this place, especially their famous footlong hotdogs. My personal favorite is the Chillidog, fries with seasoning salt and the peach juice. I remember going here when I was a kid and it is still pretty much the same. I hope they don't modernize it anymore because it would take away the charm.

I ordered the foot long hot dog combo. It could have been hotter. Menu should be expanded - no healthy items at all. I went here because honestly the other places in the area don't seem to have good menus and it was cheaper here for the same price.

Burgess is a summer time staple of Leamington. We try to make it a stop every time we are back home visiting family.

Had a small walnut ice cream cone and it was huge. I'm not sure what size large would be. The restaurant building was there when I was a child back in the 60s. The dock and beach is a shadow of what it used to be when Heinz was loading vast lake freighters. There is a new sign, but the... More

Can't tell anyone the exact date of our last visit other than it was during the summer of 2013. Burgess has been a part of the Leamington lake side landscape for many years and is a hub of activity especially during the weekends and evenings all through the summer months. They serve all the usual hamburgs and fries along with... More
