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... More

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

I stopped at the Big Smoke Burger at the Cambridge North Onroute. What a waste of $14 for a burger with cheddar cheese, fries and a regular sized diet coke. The bun was not fresh, the meat was edible and the fries were greasy and undercooked. At this price, I expect better! I would much rather have gone to a... More

On King just east of Yonge Street. Really good, freshly cooked gourmet burgers. The onion rings are colossal! $10 for a great burger drink and rings!

Tried the "Crazy Burger" at the staff recommendation. Not too spicy --- but a great choice nontheless. Price was right, service great, burgers tasty. Well worth the trip.
