“Tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

It has become an annual tradition for two of my granddaughters and myself to have lunch at Boomers when visiting Stratford. They were excited to have their Dad with us yesterday to take him to Boomers for lunch since he loves poutines. The girls just have a small regular fries and their orange drink but they love it. Simple but good!

“POUTINE for Family of 5”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We visited Sat. June 29th around 1ish. We had POUTINE, ITALIAN POUTINE, POUTINI MARTINI, COSMOPOLITAN and GOAT CHEESE POUTINE. I tried all five and with feedback from the family this is what we think. Very small hole in the wall, limited seating, approx. 10 stools around a common table it was a nice day thus customers could use the seats outside. Would not like to visit on a rainy day. They ONLY accepted cash, this info is not on the web site nor was it mentioned on the show. Now for the meat n potatoes, The young lady at the cash was very nice patient and polite. Once the order was placed it arrived in minutes, super fast and they were steaming hot. I was disappointed with the GOAT CHEESE POUTINE as it had a tiny dollop 1 tsp of goat cheese thus rate it at a 3.5 out of 5. The other 4 were rated as 4.5-5 out of 5 with the Italian coming out on top. We made a special trip to visit Boomers and were glad we did, would we drive 150kms and make another special trip to go again? NO. If in the area would we return? sure why not.

“very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

This place is the home of poutine and burgers. A very small hole in the wall with limited seating, about 10 stools around a common table. Most people eat on the benches out front. We had the Jersey Shore (chilli cheese) Burger, it was quite good and very messy. Also had the meatball poutine, fries, cheese curd, marinara sauce and two tasty little meatballs. This was also very good. Great place for some fast food.

“Good fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We visited Stratford for the Festival and decided to have lunch . We had seen Boomers on TV which made our decision easier as they're many small restaurants in that area. My wife ordered a hamburger and I had the Canadian bugler. While they were small, they were satisfying and tasty. They fries were good as well. No complaints.

“Boomers homers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I rated this excellent because it is the best in it's field . Best meal I ever had in snack Bar.Fries were still hot when served. Also one of the only places outside of Quebec where you can get a cherry coke . My wife loves the sweet potatoe fries with goat cheese -- both of us skipped the gravy --like my fries crisp
