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.

The wait was a little long, but expected, had a drink delivered to us while waiting. Love the decor, had some laughs. Wait staff were excellent, attentive and kind. Food was hot, made just like advertised and tasty.

I came by to get some burgers to go. The place looks really nice and original. After I got home and served the food everything was good except the fries that were over cooked, dark and squashy.

They do up a burger the right way, your way! Service is excellent and may take a bit longer than you are used to...but they work at making sure the burger is tailor made for your tastes. The only time the service was a bit lengthy for us in the past the manager came over and apologized and comped my... More

The selection of burgers is pretty amazing, including some combinations I would not have thought to be edible.... I guess I'll just have to try them if I ever get a chance to work my way through the entire list.... Yes, it was little greasy, but not sure if you can avoid that with a burger place and not have...

I enjoyed my meal at The Works and so did everyone I was with. However, all of our burgers were quite greasy. Like to the point that we had grease running down our forearms. Was still good, but messy. We haven't been back and aren't in a big hurry to visit again but it was good for a change!

The food is always consistent and tasty, the service was friendly and quick. I recommend to try a different burger each time you come, they are all good even the out of norm ones.

First time we came here, I got very sick. But the food was so damn good I wasn't willing to let my weak lack of grease handling stomach ruin it, so we went back. And now we go back monthly. Always amazing food, service is always prompt. My only recommendation would be to turn down the music, the acoustics in... More

So, it wasn't a visit, it was a Just Eat delivery and it was amazing. The food arrived fresh and warm in paper containers that didn't leave eve tying drowned in condensation. The burgers were meaty and the toppings plentiful. Fries and onion rings travelled very well. Can't say enough good things about this meal. I'm still stuffed. Could feed... More
