Great burgers and fries

This fast food restaurant serves upscale burgers and fries. Quantities are generous and the food is tasty and imaginative. Decor is very modern. Clientele are very young, as are the staff. Service is fast and efficient.

We were taken to the Works by some high school students and found the burgers big and juicy, huge sides of fries and the price reasonable. We have been back a couple of times when in the area.

Burger was small (about the size of Wendy's single burger), but tasty. Caesar salad was drenched in dressing, with real bacon and croutons were day old hamburger buns cut up and seasoned. Others order veggie burger... one was mushy (undercooked) and the was very dry and looked liked leather. It was so bad, it could not be eaten. I ordered... More

Attentive but not cloying service. Food was on point. Haven't had a better burger in this town. Fries and poutine were excellent. Ice cold barking squirrel on tap in a glass kept in the fridge. Niiiiicce. Great music and cool atmosphere. Have to bring Chris for a milkshake...inside joke. Thanks team Works! You are the best.

I had the getting piggy with it. Asked for it with no cheese. Came back with cheese. Hey took it back and fixed it. Burger was good. Lots of bacon. The best part was the dessert. Reese's pieces milk shake was amazing. It was decent. Decent enough that i would recommend to a friend? No.

I purchased a chicken Sum Yung Guy burger, deep fried pickles with tzatziki dipping sauce, a regular fry, and small vanilla shake. The burger was around $16 and I took only one bite before grease started dripping down my arm. The flavours didn't mesh well together and the chicken patty was actually one of the grosses chicken items I've ever... More

I love going to The Works - always a great experience! The deep fried pickles with the beech house sauce - a must try! The menu is huge, and the burgers never disappoint!

Multiple toppings on an unseasoned burger. Topping combos are interesting but the spineless burger results in disappointment.
