Burger is wonderful but be Prepared for the Enviroment

Their burger is great but the eating environment isn't the most pleasant. Ask for recommendations for toppings on the burger and get a milk shake- it's delicious.

First, the atmosphere. Frat Burger has the charm of an empty shipping container. So you won’t go there for a romantic interlude. So how’s the service? It’s not exactly a fast food joint (and that’s a good thing). From the time I ordered to the time I got my burger was 35 minutes. Fortunately, I found that day’s newspaper to... More

The poutine here was unexpectedly good. I think it's due to the fries being probably better than anywhere else in Waterloo (that I've found). Lots of additions and variations are possible. And there's always the poutine of the week to try out.

The first time I came here I fell in love. I've been going there ever since. I'm never disappointed. The burger are so delicious, as are the fries. The decor is also very inviting and the service is always friendly and helpful.

Many different types of burgers/buns and fries fixed the way you want them. Almost an endless selection of condiments.Very casual and friendly atmosphere.

My friend Ralph and I have made a habit of trying out various burger establishments in our area and this one is the most recent. They have a variety of burgers, tons of different topping options and you can get it cooked as you like it. None of this burnt to a crisp well done stuff. You want it medium... More

Frat Burger makes an excellent turkey burger and offers the extra advantage of being able to get it on a thin bun which allows for the juicy flavor of the burger really stand out. It is just the right size that leaves you feeling satisfied but not over stuffed. The poutine is amazing! I typically share an order with a... More

The burgers are good with all homemade ingredients. The portions are just the right size. I like the turkey burger and the mushroom poutine. They have great lunch specials

What an awful experience. I can't believe that this business is still operating. My partner and I went in for a late dinner (around 7pm). The place was fairly busy, we sat ourselves at a half clean table because we didn't want to sit at the bar. It took our server 10 minutes to acknowledge us, only to say she'll... More
