There is only Burgers really here. They are a little expensive but very good quality. The bottomless fries are also a nice touch but remember it is only the fries .. not the chip style potatoes etc. The prices could be a little better because of what I got for the $17 average I probably will not go back, better...

Great atmosphere and wonderful burgers! What more can you ask for? Our soda was served in two-cup measuring cups and salt n pepper shakers were light bulbs. So many cool, unique touches to this restaurant. Centrally located in downtown London. Go to their website and sign up for their emails. We got a free onion ring tower and a free... More

Ya, 15 to 20 bucks for a burger and fries and side is kinda pricey, but only if you compare it to Wendy's or wherever. So don't compare this place to a fast food joint, cuz it's not even the same market. This place has a huge variety of burger meats, toppings and inserts (e.g., goat cheese infused into elk,... More

The food was great, service was even better! They gave us expectation time for food arrivals, helped us with portions. I asked that they bring our sides out first before the burgers and that was no problem either. When one of our salads came out I noticed something on it before it got to my daughter and that tray never... More

I have eaten here in several occasions and it never dissapoints. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the food is delicious. My only complaint is that $15+ for a burger and fries feels a little steep. However, in this case you get what you pay for.

Stopped in for dinner on a Friday night early. Beat the rush, and enjoyed everything again. Great service from all sides, sweet lovely server from the get-go and yummy food. We both opted for the chicken breasts, and toppings and a complimentary app of a tower of rings. Love their buns, multi grain at that! Busy atmosphere but they aim... More

My wife and I previously ate at The Works in Niagara Falls and found both the food and service to be good. We have just returned from our first visit to their London location. If anything, the London outlet is even better. The food was equally well prepared and tasty. The service was excellent. We have found our favourite London... More

Amazing burgers and the poutine martini is to die for. Also the bacon aoli sauce is incredible as well.

The ambience and the theme of the restaurant is good and intuitive. Had one of the best burgers of my life. Waiters were friendly and gave nice suggestions too. Patty was juicy and the meat was really good. Fries too tasted great here. Had a great time and food. Definitely one of the places to look into in Downtown.
