I guess I thought that a place that specialized in burgers wouldn't serve one of the 50 options for specialty burgers on a hockey puck rather than a burger patty. I was told that the burgers all come prepared medium well, but can also be cooked to well done. I personally like my burgers medium rare or medium, so the... More

We hadn't been here before but after reading the ratings on TripAdvisor, we thought we would give it a try. Great atmosphere and decor! Our drinks were served in a 2 cup glass measuring cup - ha! That was a first for me. Oodles and oodles of different burger selections and combinations. Can't wait to come back and try another... More

I had heard good things about this chain and will definitely check out the location in my hometown. Hubby & I chose the 4 oz. lunch burgers and were glad we didn't go bigger because along with the side dish, these were hearty lunches. Fun, clean, relaxed atmosphere. Very friendly and seemingly knowledgeable staff who work as a team to... More

I lost my poutine virginity at The Works and have no regrets;-) Although I still want to try the original poutine one day, we went adventurous and tried The Longhorn version with bbq brisket in addition to the cheese curds and gravy. OMG!!! Do not go to this restaurant if you are on a diet!!! It is really delicious, and... More

There are so many to choose from, it's hard to decide. If you want a good burger, this is the place to go. Options for meat, toppings, and bun are available. You will not be disappointed. And the milkshakes are so good!

If you want a casual place for the best burger in town with tons of variety, toppings and vegetarian choices, this is the place. Cool drinks are served in measuring cups :) Salt and pepper shakers are like light bulbs, an industrial, open concept space that can be a bit noisy for those who don't like that.

I frequented The Works with my sorority sisters during the past school year. The burgers are bigger than you. The milk shakes come in industrial size measuring cups. You feel as though you are about to explode after your meal. It is perfection. It is one of my favourite college memories trying to beat my friends in a burger eating... More

Yes the burgers are more expensive than fast food but you get what you pay for. The variety of burgers (beef, chicken, turkey, elk, veggie) and toppings. There are more combinations than you can think of. Stay clear of the 32 oz milkshakes unless you don't plan on having a burger. They have bunless option and healthier sides if that... More

We went for supper prior to a London Knights game. No parking, unless you use the garage across the street that also services Bud Gardens and the Covent Garden Market. Food was good, but pricey for a burger joint. Would I go again? Perhaps, but only because it is close to the Gardens, and we have to pay to park... More
