My local parents took myself and my husband touting it as the best burger ever. They did not lie! Juicy, tons of toppings to choose from and perfect bun to meat ratio all "best burgers" must have. Super amazing servers and food was delivered fast, but have a hot chocolate to start while you wait! 10/10 will go every time... More

They have the best atmosphere along with the best tasting burgers, gourmet. I had the Brie Burger which was brought back by popular demand. It was char-grilled prime rib burger with red pepper chutney, granny smith apples and brie cheese on an awesome bun. The sweet potato fries were yummy too. When in Stratford you MUST stop here.......

My partner and I stopped in to Downie Street Burger for what we hoped would be a quick lunch before the theatre. It wasn't. We ordered immediately from the "specials" menu board. Our drink order was delivered quickly but the food order seemed to take forever. We had 1.5 hours, so we were not too concerned at first. We waited... More

It was my husband's birthday, and he loves a good burger, so we drove to Stratford from London to try out Downie Street Burger. The restaurant was easy to find, and had plenty of available metered street parking nearby. We called before leaving London, and made reservations for 5:45. We arrived a few minutes early, and they had a table... More

This one has become a monthly favourite for me. First stumbled upon it on 2013. The atmosphere is good, great music, good selection of scotch, and they have a good taste in beer. The burgers are amazing. They are large, so I often just order them solo, eat slowly and savour, as these burgers have such a burst of flavour!

If you are looking for a great meal with great service, check out this place. Affordable and great, great service! The seating on the patio leaves a lot to be desired. The tables are awkward for your feet and the chairs are uncomfortable. We suggest sitting inside. Enjoy!

We had tickets for a 2 p.m. matinee at the Avon theatre, arrived about 1 p.m. wanting a quick soup and sandwich. Waited a bit, more than we though necessary, given the one waitress serving outdoors was constantly bustling by, to be seated on the vary narrow, and crowded, outdoor seating. We waited a lot more before out orders were... More

This restaurant is certainly convenient to the Avon Theatre which is right across the street. They serve burgers with every conceivable combination of toppings and sauces. My only complaint was that my burger was over-cooked, but on the other hand, I had not specified tat I prefer it medium rare. My bad. We would return.

As Festival members my wife and I have visited Stratford three or four times a year for at least a decade. Frequently we eat at Downie Street Burger - especially if seeing a play at the Avon Theatre which is next. This is not fast food so don't expect McDonald's prices. Do expect fresh, made to order burgers on a... More

Stopped here for a late lunch with my teen daughter on a Thursday. We started with the traditional poutine and it was good. first time having it so we have nothing to compare it too. For our meal we had a prime cheeseburger and the Greek wrap - both delicious. Our server was very nice and attentive. On a side... More
