The burgers are decent. The deep fried pickles are pretty good. I like that you can get the toppings that you like on your burgers.

The great thing about a Harvey's burger was it took a good 5-7 mins to cook and the wait made it taste even better. Now they are basically ready made (for drive-thru) and barely edible.

Harvey's has a very good take out service. We ordered burgers & fries & they didn't take very long to prepare & taste great!

This is much the same as other chain burger stores but with a slight difference, once the meat is on the bun, you get to choose the extras i.e. lettuce, tomato, peppers etc. at no extra cost. Bacon poutine is the best we have had at a fast food store so far in Canada. Good prices for what you get,... More

I remember about half a century ago visiting Toronto from Western Canada and stumbling into Harveys and being thrilled and amazed by those wonderful and low priced hamburgers. I don't know if I've changed or if Harvey's has changed......I suspect a bit of both. But the two times I've re-visited this chain, they've been barely edible. More salt in the... More

This is a typical Harvey's with all the regular choices. It's the second time I have been there and both times I was served by the same cashier. She never smiles & looks like she would rather be anywhere else. If the job is really that bad, why wouldn't you work elsewhere? The food is good but she's in line... More

I had lunch today at Harvey's. The hamburger was yummy. I keep forgetting what good value this is. They offer coupons in the mail and the two of us had an burger, onion rings and drinks for $9.99.

Absolutely incredible veggie burgers. Even better than the more expensive non-fast food chains. I could eat these once a week (don't...but could) and regularly find myself craving them. Perhaps it's the flame grilling. Taste and quality are consistent each and every time. Staff are clean and friendly/ The only other menu items I can comment on are the fries (not... More
