Best burgers in town

Nice place with quite a unique interior design. Everything is done there with a certain "taste", from the tables to the menus and the names the burgers have. Great burgers and really nice staff. Could be a little cheaper but I guess you gotta pay a little more than some places for a really good... read more

Saturday lunch at The Works was wonderful. It's a kind of post-apocalyptic atmosphere, with chain link fences around each area, but the 70s and 60s music almost makes up for it. The Son of a Beech burger, with turkey and a soft, white bun was fantastic. Very flavourful and cooked perfectly. Good meal.

A huge gaggle of us met for a Saturday lunch, with nieces and nephews and five kids who were six and under. The staff did a great job accommodating us to two large tables, collecting everyone's orders, explaining how the burgers are cooked fresh and will likely have a bit of pink in the middle but gave those the option...

The Works is one of my favorite restaurants. The food quality is excellent, the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is fun. There are so many burgers to choose from. On my most recent trip, my boyfriend and I had been in Cuba for a week and the food there was terrible. We were craving a Works burger. As soon... More

The service, well it was like being served by good friends. We tried a variety of dishes, everything was simply amazing. Barbara and her staff of family and friends have real passion for creating and presenting delicious family recipes in a friendly welcoming environment.

From my first visit a few years back, I have been a regular customer of The Works, and have introduced many family/friends to this great place. The atmosphere is casual, fun and friendly. You feel like you are in an industrial warehouse. It's a great family environment, and works well for a group of adults enjoying a fun meal out.... More

Tasty burgers and friendly service. Servers have always been kind to the kids. Love the measuring cups for beverages.

I have yet to have a bad burger at The Works. They are fresh, inventive and delicious! The Puotine's are also very good. I recommend the Bison upgrade and also the Deep Fried Pickles appy.

I came here with my friend and have never looked at burgers the same since. Not only do they offer an incredible variety of burgers, salads, sides and shakes they also have some tasties for the vegetarians out there. The flavours and presentations of the food are on point, the atmosphere is super cool, very laid back and not too... More

My wife and I love this place. We have been here at least a dozen times to date. Even if we just ate there it seems like its been too long since we have been there. When I have friends come from out of town I like to bring them here if we get the chance and all my friends... More
