Poutine tastes like you're in Quebec

The Poutine is the closest thing I've tasted since I've been to Quebec with the fresh curds and gravy recipe. Very authentic! The vegetarian gravy is also good as it has mushrooms in it. Burgers are grinded in house and made fresh. Some may complain of the size but it tastes great. I found... read more

Have been to Frat Burger for their gourmet burgers. Good economical solution to some of the more pricier places in town. Recently, they have launched a new breakfast. Good prices. Chose the meat lovers breakfast - and everything went downhill. Scrambled eggs were overcooked; home fries undercooked; bacon was okay. In the afternoon, I went into a serious aftershock and...

WOW, this is like an old school diner with so much ambience! Always like their burgers. Had breakfast and very reasonable price, so big Omelete. Great breakfast food and great value! Also they serve burger in early morning as well. I loved it! If near university looking for a good breakfast this is one of the best options I have... More

Love this place. The burgers and fries are fabulous. Burger is juicy and there are lots of toppings. Onion rings are fantastic too. Attention to detail, well cooked, all the trimmings depending on what you want. Friendly staff. Now they are serving breakfast. Going to try soon.

These are by far the best burgers and onion rings we have ever had! Everything was so flavourful and the portions were very large! They have so many different variations for the burger toppings you would never get bored going here. We asked for our burgers to be cooked medium and they were so juicy and perfectly cooked! We also... More

Went into frat burger and found the place surprisingly empty. We were told to seat ourselves. One table, two table, three tables of filthy disgusting tables. The fourth table was so-so clean so we sat down. No explanations provided like the Works but we were able to read the menus. I got a burger that was a suggestion from the... More

I love salt, and you better too, to enjoy the hamburger I had. Every bite tasted salty, but good. My wife would not have finished her lunch if she had been with me (it was that salty). I, however, loved every bite. At Frat Burger you custom-order your hamburger from a selection of meats (look at the website ahead of... More
