Walked by this place with my son, we love hamburgers so gave it a try. The menu was laid out well so you could to fast. did the Big Smoke.... Bun was normal but the meat was terrific. It was cooked really well, moist, and was a fair size portion. I have had better but this is right up there.... More

We actually are at the On-route cambridge location! We shared a large poutine and it was AMAZING! My boyfriend said it was the best poutine had ever had! It starts with really good, crispy fries. And then it was LOADED with real cheese curds and then smothered in a delicious sweet/savoury brown gravy! For being at a rest stop on... More

I tried this place on a whim, not because I set out to purposely eat here. Nobody told me about the place, I didn't hear about through the grapevine, and I didn't read any rave reviews on any social media website. I was just at the right place at the right time. I missed dinner, got really hungry, and I... More

Actually ate at the Yorkdale mall site, but had an amazing burger. Nice thick, juicy burger, perfect toppings, fresh bun. The fries were a bit salty, but delicious as well. Can't wait to go back.

Wonderful burger, organic available....fried onions, huge tasty fries. The only improvement I would like to see is a Gluten Free bun added to the menu.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. And for your kind words! We are always looking at gluten free bun options but have not yet found one that represents us well.

I went here twice on my visit to Toronto and both times the service was excellent. Although you have to wait about 8 mins for your food it's worth the wait. The burgers are all cooked to order and to your liking which is nice. The food itself was very tasty and was of decent size. I had the blue... More

We had just arrived in Toronto that afternoon and were wandering King Street looking for somewhere to stop for supper with our toddler. We were not up for any big chain stuff and most places did not seem kid-friendly, so when we came across Big Smoke Burger, we went right in. First off, it smelled great in there and, despite...

The burgues was home-made, which is supposed to be good. However, the burgues came not well cooked, The place is nice, with good waitress and organized staff. The prices are a little high.

I love burgers, and burger lovers know that it is hard to beat one homemade. Well, I had the pleasure of sampling the fare at Big Smoke on King Street West a couple of weeks ago and I have to say it beats anything I have ever had and have ever made at home. As a accompaniment, a good 1/2... More

Was expecting a resturant but turned out to be somewhere in between fast food and a resturant. the advantage, we paid slightly more then your local burger joint and way less then the table cloth joints. The payoff was an amazing tasty burger that hit the spot. I ordered the lamb burger and it lived up to expectations. We ordered... More
