Great poutine! and burgers too.

Great spot to take in a very good burger, sandwich, poutine. Quiet, clean and good service. Not you McDonald's for price but the quality and portions are worth it.

Hands down one of the best burger places in Southwestern Ontario. Love that they added sweet potato fries and that they always have a different feature. I don't eat beef and they have no problem switching the patty out for chicken for me.

Our meals were great, including both meat burgers and the mushroom burgers -- we had a mix of carnivores and herbivores in our party. Tasty homemade sweet potato fries. But most impressive was Nancy, our server, who was extremely concerned about our youngest son, who didn't want anything on the menu. (We call him "Picky Picky" for a reason.) She... More

Ate at the DSB tonight before evening performance and the burger and fries were unbelievable! The sangria was also out of this world. It was a very reasonably priced meal and the service was excellent given how busy the restaurant was tonight. I had the Downie Street burger with fries and my friend had the same with sweet potato fries...my... More

Downie Street Burgers services up a great upscale kind of burger experience. A bit pricey maybe but delicious! The quality is evident and they brought the missed toppings out before I even knew they weren't there. Please note that if you're expecting a speed, this is not fast food but if you have the time; it's a great leisurely dining... More

We've been to Stratford several times but this is the first time we have eaten at Downie Street Burger. The decor and atmosphere of the place is really terrific. So is the service and so is the food. As advertised, they are great burgers. The food is very fresh and has lots of wonderful taste. Neither of us eats burgers... More

Went here on a recommendation, there were four of us and we had a great time. Service was a bit slow but they were busy and we were quite happy to chat. One of the party had the special which could have been a bit bigger portion.

This review is a shoutout to Bolero200 who claims Downie Street has Dry Burgers and complains that they charge for homemade sauces. Even from first glance at the burger it becomes very clear that the burger is not dry, but cooked in a 'well done' manner, which is the goal of the restaurant. It retains the juice but is cooked...

I had a burger with roasted peppers, blue cheese, and slices of a perfect avocado. Only a burger, but a properly done burger, with the widest range of toppings. Good fries, really good onion rings, and a nice spicy barbecue sauce to top off the rings.

We went to Downie before seeing a play in Stratford, and we were so impressed we went back the next night! My mother and I are vegetarians, so were a little wary of a burger place at first, but this was hands down the best veggie burger I've had in Canada. The ability to customize your burger was very welcome,... More
