okay

I had a goat cheese burger and my wife had a chicken breast on a bun . Although both were good we were underwhelmed considering the price point ( $13.00 for the goat cheese burger) Sweet potato fries were reasonably priced but were sadly undercooked . Service was efficient and friendly .

It's rare that we 'randomly' eat somewhere anymore. Before we headed to Stratford, we knew that we'd be eating burgers at Downie Street Burger. I had already picked out the Cajun dry-rubbed burg with curried pineapple chutney, bacon and grilled pineapple. My partner had already settled on the Downie St. Burger classic with a good glop of chipotle mayo, a... More

This is not your typical burger place that's why we went there. I think I should start by saying the food (burgers) were good. The wait staff were busy and looked very efficient. (happy friendly helpful) The setting was nice but still something missing. This place is small and I could hear every word that was said on the other... More

Downie Street Burger is where we go whenever we have a show at the Avon or Studio Theatres. Nancy and staff are always welcoming and the food is almost always fabulous. I can't think of a time when I've had a burger I didn't like. I especially like the "create your own" burger options. Wonderful!

Decent selection of burgers with interesting variety of gourmet topping options. There is usually a wait, with limited reservations taken. The staff was very friendly, with efficient service. Good food, good local brews and out in time to see a play. Great place to get your beef fix in Stratford.

Ok - I agree with other reviewers - the prices here are high. We were seated outside on the 'terrace' - which actually is a sidewalk with a fence - but never mind - we were outside. They have a $5 draft special - so we opted for that - we each ordered a burger (ranging from $13 to $18)... More

The service was fast and the burgers could be tailored to your taste. I had blue cheese and caramelized onion. We shared an order of onion rings, sweet potato fries and a Caesar salad. Way too much food really, but it was so delicious we ate every last bite!

My spouse and I got into Stratford early enough for dinner. We didn't have tickets for a show to the Stratford Festival, so we had time to linger, while those with tickets had to rush off. I got the portabella burger (sans bun) and an order of sweet potato fries, while my spouse got the soya (soy for the Americans)... More

This is a delightful burger specialty burger restaurant although there are alternate items on the menu. Well located, across the street from the Avon and Studio Theatres in Stratford. A super array of fine burgers all with varying ingredients. All appear to be made with Black Angus beef and, thus, are invariably tasty. Menu prices are a tad high but... More
