“Novelty, worn out.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012 via Local Picks

My wife and I went to the St.Laurent/Manor Park location and was happy enough with the decor and was warmly greeted by the hostess, then it goes down hill from there.
I asked the male server how it works to order and was told we serve pizza, not a good first impression but a lasting one. We ordered two burgers and a side of fries and onion rings, the fries were good but the onions rings rocked.
The burger was a burger..nothing special in my opinion..but $10 + for them is not worth it.
save the wait and the gas.

This place is very well known for its burgers, and it did not disappoint. It may though take a little while to get your food but worth the wait. Overall great place food is great.

We have been there about 8 times including one day when we went for both lunch and supper. They cannot be beat.

“Great burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

This place has one of the best burgers but because they cook it fresh, there is a long wait for it.

Their tower of ring is very good.

The sides that comes with their burger is not the greatest and is small portions.

free refils on drinks. Lots of free parking.

“Everybody was happy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

Went here with a group of colleagues for the first time.

An overwhelming selection of burger options for every type of diet. Easily over sixty different topping options X by six or seven meat options X by two bun options = if you can't find something here, you might be the problem!

Anyway, everybody was raving about how good their meal was.

Décor is standard and dress is casual.
