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

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

the burgers are pretty good, worth spending a couple more bucks as opposed to McDonalds or any other huge burger chain. they make burgers with fresh.

Burger lover's paradise! Loads of choices and excellent fries! I am a traditionalist when it comes to burgers, but enjoy trying out some new items here. Choose your patty be it beef, turkey or vegetarian! The beef (which is what I choose on this visit) is tasty with a homemade patty style. Next you have multiple choices for toppings on... More

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.
