If you like to order a burger and pick all of the fresh ingredients then this is the place. I also recommend the cheese fries with curry catsup.

Burgers, (single, double or triple meat, OR salmon OR chicken OR turkey OR veggie) plus french fries is the menu along with drinks. Cooked to order in front of you with lots of condiments to choose from (pineapple on your burger if you wish as an example). Fast and affordable. The two of us got a salmon burger, a single... More

I eat GF. There are several glutinized foods I miss and a burger on a good bun is included. This burger place is my family's favorite. Their lettuce wrap option is excellent. You might ask what's so special about a bigger wrapped in iceberg lettuce?? What makes Relish different is their spin on toppings not to mention the location in... More

1st off they have Poutine!!!!! If you haven't had this awesome french fry concoction you must have it on a cold winter evening. It's rare to find this south of Canada. The burgers are great, cooked right after you order and the topping selections range from standard to very unique (peanut butter and fried egg) Also great selection of condiments... More

I tried Relish because at lunch time in an area with lots of lunch places it was the one that had the biggest crowd, It did not take long for me to see why, the burgers were amazing and the service was on point. I did try the Putin and was not impressed but again the burgers which are the... More

Relish-Big Tasty Burgers was a good dining experience. As you walk in to place your order, it is immediately put on the grill. Once the burger is ready, you choose your toppings. Relish-Big Tasty Burgers has a variety of toppings to choose from. There are about 6 different sauces to choose from you can put on your bun. The add-ons... More

I like it, but its an avarage burger. They have a thin meat, do not have specials with angus + pork mixed meat. The hamburgue is not chuncky and also they do not offer this king of option in the Menu. I expected more than an restaurant that try to sell themselves with "Angus" meat.

Nothing great. Like my Title says: Just another spatula smashed thin "burger" place. It was ok at best but really nothing as good as local tasteless people here says it is. Real Burgers that taste beefy and juicy are around 1" thick. No place I have found here do this. They are all now thin tasteless beef chips. Also I... More
