Short getaway weekend in Kingston. On our way into town, noticed this place was maxed out with almost every table full. So, we decided to give it a try the next day. Lots of windows with views on to Princess street. The waitstaff were all exceptionally friendly and attentive. We ordered a bbq pork poutine (really popular in Canada) for about $10, and it was very good and unfortunately filled us up before our entrees even arrived. I had an australian burger with sweet potatoe fries ($13) and wife had goat cheese salad ($10). Tea/ Soft Drink was about $3, but free fills and very cool measuring cup mugs. The presentation and quality of the food was great, and they were easy-going and not in a rush to push us out the door. Yeah, $13 for hamburger and fries is a little steep but is better and custom-made (20-minute wait), unlike a Big Mac or Whopper. Overall, we were pleased and enjoyed it.

There is no doubt that the Works' burgers are amazing and there is a massive selection to choose from (even burgers with peanut butter). The milkshakes are also absolutely amazing. The burgers are no doubt incredibly delicious, but they are also incredibly pricey.

Great location and atmosphere. The theme of the restaurant is very apparent and its fun.

The wait for the food is a bit long and the number of on the menu is overwhelming. Takes too long to decide as you are bombarded by choice.

A little expensive for a burger but not bad.

The pros: good location/GREAT service (I wish I'd asked the waiter's name)/good ambiance (was a hot day & we were seated beside the huge open window)/food was tasty enough BUT:
The cons: $12 for a veggie burger that tasted exactly like what I can get at 'Harvey's'/tiny salad with only greens/I'm sorry but I want my drink in a GLASS, NOT a mason jar, not a fish bowl or as 'The Works' serves them, not in a glass measuring cup. It's gimmicky & silly.

This franchise started in Ottawa and the quality has not been sacrificed as they have expanded. This is a reliable and friendly place to keep visiting!
