Description: Chef Inspired Gourmet Burgers & Poutinerie. “Gourmet” is about so much more than flavour. It’s about making the right choices. Our burgers and poutine are unlike anything you’ve tasted before because we stand by a number of simple principles. We make as much of our food from scratch as we can; whenever possible we support other local businesses; and we make every effort to minimize our impact on the environment. As a Nova Scotia family-run business, we offer more than incredible chef-inspired fare. We offer a completely unique gourmet experience no matter what choice you make from our menu.

Tried the basic burger and triple bacon poutine. Both were very good. My wife had the sweet potato fries & enjoyed them. Their signature condiment, CC, was a tasty, sweet dill sauce. Don't come here if you are in a hurry. It's busy & the services slow. It was even slower because they made me the wrong poutine. However, they apologized & took care of it right away. You order, then get one of those coasters that light up when your order is ready. Then, they have a counter like Harvey's or Subway where you tell them what condiments & toppings you want. The selection is great.

There is a great selection of different burgers, poutines, etc. and there is a taco bar coming June 3, 2013.

Decore is modern & they keep the place clean.

Overall, I would say this gourmet burger joint is better than Flip Burger, on par with Relish, but not as good as Darrel's.

Ok, I didn't try the burgers, which is what they are most popular for! But, the poutine is just your standard average poutine...not worth waiting in a super LONG lineup for.

So, I might try the burgers next time. This place is quite popular and usually very busy.

The name and location in a strip mall might not lead you to believe that this is an excellent place to go for burgers, poutine, onion rings, and fries - but it definitely IS! Went here with family recently - my 10-yr-old nephew chose this as the place where he wanted to have his birthday dinner. I must admit - I was dubious at first, but we went with family (6 of us from 10 to 79) and we all really, really enjoyed it! Two of the family members are vegetarians and they had excellent choices too! The burgers are simply superb and you "build your own" choosing whatever toppings you wish. The service is amazing - and funny! The constant long lineup of people coming in to order is a testamant to how good this place is - it's definitely worth checking out. And the prices are very reasonable - all six of us ate for $83 and we were all totally stuffed at the end!

I love this place for a fast and delicious burger. The service is fast and friendly. The place is always full. They have a kids menu and it is reasonable. The serving sizes are big enough to share.
I love the quality of the burgers - they taste lean without any of the hard pieces you get at other burger joints!
The toppings are numerous and fresh. Finally the onion rings are covered with a drizzle of honey which makes them even more irresistible.
I have yet to try the poutine but it looks fantastic. We have been back four times for the burgers.

After all the hype about this place mostly great and some spotty we were a bit underwhelmed by the place. Had to look hard to find a place to sit and then had to clean it up ourselves as a family with kids had left quite a mess behind. It was No biggie as family style restaurants often have such issues. What disturbed us is that there was no effort by staff to tidy things up in any fashion. Granted it was around supper time and quite busy but it seemed like they were more interested in up selling us than delivering a full experience. The burgers were good and portions large with lots of choice of garnishes. The fries were good but certainly not great, at least on the night we were there. All in all we were a bit underwhelmed and will not be rushing back.
