Good fast food.

Great burgers and fries. Eat in or take out. Also fish and chips or pizza. Other menu options available. No outdoor patio but ample seating inside. Friendly staff.

We always stop in on the wknd of Pumpkinfest and I always get the steak burger as take out for my husband. He loves it and it isn't a common menu item elsewhere.

Yes the food is out of the freezer. Yes the building is dated. But there is something to say about consistency and friendliness. I like to think of Burger Trail as our neighborhood burger joint with a Cheers feel

Union Burger might be a newer place and seem better, but this place is something else!!! Took a long time to walk in there for the first time...but go there for a veal burger quiet often now! love their food! If you are in town...you gotta try it! My favorite burger place in town!!!

You know, I hear everybody complain about the union burger up the street's prices and thier burgers, but at least the food there is REAL! I paid over 8$ plus tax for a freezerburnt burger that is full if fatty fillers. The deepfried veggies I had were okay but does it take much skill to cook those? I think not.... More

Somewhat of a wait for your food(but taste makes up for it). Not a bad portion/value factor either. Licensed so you can have a beer(which most burger shops aren't). Very nice people! Just needs an updating on the interior.

After reading the reviews from the” locals”, we tried this restaurant for lunch. Got 2 burger combos ($7.99/ea). Burgers were the Costco frozen paw style on a dry, ...oversized bun. Fries were definitely frozen. Asked for hot peppers on the burger ..they do not have any. (Fairly standard item for a burger?) She told me to use hot sauce. I... More

I asked for a banquet burger and recieved it for take out. When I opened it at home it had no lettuce or even tomatoes on it and the burger was very bland. Will not return there.

We live in Port Elgin and have no affiliation with the owners or this restaurant. But when out of curiosity, I was looking on Trip Advisor to see how Port Elgin restaurants were ranked, I was surprised to see very few reviews for Burger Trail. This is fast food - don't get me wrong......but it will beat McDonald's, Union Burger... More

We are regular visitors to this area, and find that the Burger Trail has above average fare for a 'fast food' counter-type restaurant. The food tastes homemade, and the prices are very reasonable. This place stands out from the other counter serve similar establishments in the general area. It's certainly not fancy, but clean and decent - a great family... More
