“Okay Burgers, Rundown Location”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We bought a WagJag that allowed us to spend $20 for $10 at the restaurant. This location has changed hands many times over the years and is in need of refurbishment. The tables are painted black but are chipped and scratched, the vinyl upholstery on the bench seats was torn open, the walls are painted black with holes in the drywall, & the lighting is dark which made me suspicious of how clean the place was. Other turn-offs were the loud music, the plastic scratched glasses, the sticky & greasy menus, and the container full of plastic forks & knives which you helped yourself to; (luckily we were able to eat with our hands which were probably cleaner!).

The burgers range from $10 to $40 and include a side of fries. We spent an additional $2 each for onion rings and sweet potato fries instead. The burgers were huge and looked delicious. Mine was flavorful because of the bacon and cheese on it but the actual meat on its own was bland ground beef with no hint of seasoning. The sweet potato fries were delicious but the onion rings were disgusting; DRENCHED in oil and upset my stomach that night.

We wouldn't return and were glad we didn't pay full price. Recommend making a homemade burger on your BBQ at home instead!

“Highly Reccomend”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Walked in with the family today (2 adults, 3 kids) thinking it was a burger joint, restaurant type atmosphere but it is more a bar atmosphere, dark, with high table and bar stools. Didn't bother us as we always have a booster in the car for the toddler that straps onto any chair.

Hubby and I went in craving a burger and was that ever satisfied. Everyone enjoyed their meals. They offer any burger you can think of even a PB & J burger. They also offer gluten free buns which is a plus. Sweet potato fries were excellent.

Definitely recommend this is you are looking for a real burger.

We will be back for sure and have already recommended this place to everyone I know that is in the Barrie area.

“best sweet potato fries”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

great burgers, good for both meat and non meat eaters..but the best are the sweet potato fries!
It's dark and the dining set up leaves something to be desired, but you dont go there for the decor or atmosphere-go for the burgers and fries!
