Slow and unfriendly service. Burger was raw, so I only ate pickles. Not allowed take out as their sale was dine in only. Worst lunch I have ever had and will never return!

The food is served on metal trays and drinks come out in Pyrex glass ware!! Lot's of choices for Burgers, prices are OK. The burgers are cooked perfectly but in all honesty, i would season... More

Went there before a concert last night and had delicious food! Service was great and the food came quite fast. Would recommend the onion rings, they are delicious! Ask for a dipping sauce on the side, a great addition to the rings. Everyone will be able to find something they like here, so many options and choices!

This was my second time at The Works chain, the first being in the Ottawa area. Man, what a great selection of burgers. If you have never been and are a burger fan this is a place that you need to try. It will take you 15mins just to read over what they offer. You can select your patty type... More

I have been here plenty of times, mostly to quickly stop in for the awesome vegetarian poutine! My boyfriend and I are huge fans of getting poutine to go from here. We are not fans of the obnoxious atmosphere so don't like to stay there to eat. We have both gotten different variations of toppings on veggie burgers, but it... More

I found it hilarious to visit Relish's in Worley village before it finally closed down because it was a carbon copy of The Works. The smorgasbord of selections and custom building of burgers is still found at The Works. The perceived flexibility of having multiple burger selections is blunted due to massive confusion. Ask yourself this: how many times have... More
