Had lunch here with a friend and was very satisfied with the burger. Mine had beef brisket and bacon which tasted great. The onion rings were good as well and I liked the selection of dipping sauces for the sides. Price was a bit high but it was good quality.

Their strength is the selection of gourmet topping combinations. The taste was 3/5. Patties are good, but I've had juicier patties with more flavour elsewhere. Toppings are high quality. The price was a bit too high to call it a good value. About $15 for a burger with a side. I had the onion rings which I liked a lot.... More

Came here on the weekend with a large group of friends, and received fantastic service from the young lady who took care of us (I'm sorry, I wish I had gotten her name!) She did an excellent job of walking us through the menu, and providing recommendations off of the menu. Their menu of burgers is HUGE, so can be... More

Stop in during a rain event before the crowds formed! Great burgers, enjoyed the turkey and chicken breast. Excellent service all around. Had an Oreos milkshake....humongous!

I've eaten here many times and it's always excellent service and food. The beechhouse sauce and spicy chips are my fave with the crappy tire turkey burger. I love that I can choose my type of patty. This place never disappoints and anyone I take there loves it too. My only suggestion is on a super hot day ...close the... More

Overwhelming menu - but many good choices - the wait staff is very good at guiding you through all of the clever burger names/titles to get you close to what you really want. The "Sexy Burger" was recommended by staff - and it didn't disappoint. The onion rings were superb! Atmosphere is industrial, chain link fences inside and such. The... More

As ALWAYS the burger was devine!!! My go to is The Mary but tonight i had the Banh me Banh you and it was an AMAZING.

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
