Ordered a double bacon cheeseburger and cheese, I tried the patty by itself to see how tasty it was without the rest of the toppings and found it to be extremely salty. Then I took a bite into the burger which with the combination of the bacon and cheese was barely edible. I've had many burgers like this at other... More

I've been here twice now, and both times have been rewarded with completely juicy fresh and delicious burgers, and the onion rings ... with great price. Love their frat sauce. Love being able to pick and choose my toppings.

Great selection with very good prices. Awesome student breakfast for $3.99. Very good burgers and fries. Large selection to suite most - you can even get two hotdogs for $3.50. Definitely worth trying.

Have been to Frat Burger for their gourmet burgers. Good economical solution to some of the more pricier places in town. Recently, they have launched a new breakfast. Good prices. Chose the meat lovers breakfast - and everything went downhill. Scrambled eggs were overcooked; home fries undercooked; bacon was okay. In the afternoon, I went into a serious aftershock and...

WOW, this is like an old school diner with so much ambience! Always like their burgers. Had breakfast and very reasonable price, so big Omelete. Great breakfast food and great value! Also they serve burger in early morning as well. I loved it! If near university looking for a good breakfast this is one of the best options I have... More

Love this place. The burgers and fries are fabulous. Burger is juicy and there are lots of toppings. Onion rings are fantastic too. Attention to detail, well cooked, all the trimmings depending on what you want. Friendly staff. Now they are serving breakfast. Going to try soon.

These are by far the best burgers and onion rings we have ever had! Everything was so flavourful and the portions were very large! They have so many different variations for the burger toppings you would never get bored going here. We asked for our burgers to be cooked medium and they were so juicy and perfectly cooked! We also... More

Went into frat burger and found the place surprisingly empty. We were told to seat ourselves. One table, two table, three tables of filthy disgusting tables. The fourth table was so-so clean so we sat down. No explanations provided like the Works but we were able to read the menus. I got a burger that was a suggestion from the... More

The Poutine is the closest thing I've tasted since I've been to Quebec with the fresh curds and gravy recipe. Very authentic! The vegetarian gravy is also good as it has mushrooms in it. Burgers are grinded in house and made fresh. Some may complain of the size but it tastes great. I found that eating in is a must... More
