I'm not a big burger fan. I normally would not even consider the option. But I love this place. The burgers are fantastic. So many choices. It can seem overwhelming at first but just take your time and enjoy the experience. My favourite is Man O War. The onion ring tower is fabulous. Crispy and flavourful. Can't wait to go... More

We were visiting London and looking for a place to celebrate the birthday of a young lady turning 20 - we were a family crowd; all over 18. They were able to accommodate all 13 of us easily. The menu is overwhelming in terms of burgers and beverages. One can certainly build their burger the way they like it. All... More

As an infrequent burger eater, I was very pleasantly surprised by "The Works". Plenty of choice and almost limitless possibilities for extras.

We stopped here after reading the reviews on TA. We ordered hamburgers and chicken sandwiches. Food was served fast and hot. All the sandwiches could use more toppings (chili, mac and cheese and poutine ) fresh cut fries were good, we would all upgrade to the poutine next time. Fun ambiance with drinks out of glass measuring cup, light bulb... More

We recently met friends here for a pre-concert meal. I can't say enough about our server and the rest of the staff. They were so friendly and helpful. I'd heard lots of positive comments about this restaurant. And the rest of our group thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Sadly, I was disappointed in my burger. I can only assume that the... More

Had heard good things about the Works and decided to visit with my son. Both of us enjoy a good burger and had hit 5 Guys Burgers a few times, and thought we should try something else ... and we were not disappointed. Short version, best burger either of us have had. Not to slight 5 Guys or Bungalow (both... More

We came for dinner at a very busy time but the service was incredible with rotating staff available to take orders and serve our food. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was hopping. The tables are close together so it is not a place for a quiet intimate dinner but if you are looking... More

Before going to an event at Budweiser Gardens, the 5 of us going, thought it would be fun to try The Works on King St. All of us were virgins to this burger emporium but have heard good reviews on it. Some complain it is expensive, but if this is what you love, a great burger, there is no financial... More
