There are a few things that can really give you a sense of whether a restaurant knows what its doing. Pasta is one. Poorly cooked pasta is a very unpleasant eating experience. Steak is another. A good piece of well cooked beef needs nothing more than salt and pepper.

Burgers are another. You might think not but it's actually hard to find a really good burger. They can be dry. If quality meat isn't used they'll try to create flavour with all kinds of seasonsings, spices and filler. Well, today's a good day for burgers. We found BQM Burger today. The Queen St, Toronto location is like walking into a time capsule. It looks like an old style diner. They offer burgers made with Chuck, Brisket or Sirloin. We had one from brisket. It had great flavour all on its own. The toppings were accents, not trying to hide anything. The onion rings were properly done and have a nice bread coating. Fries are double fried (which is the right way to make fries). Service was good and friendly. And they have a nice selection of beer.

TVT Verdict: Check it out!

i've been here a couple of times with both my partner for brunch and with friends for dinner. in a phrase, i would call their burgers MEGA-AWESOME. absolutely delicious and the selection is impressive. i've tried all the other burger joints and this one is definitely my favorite. it's a step up from the others in terms of atmosphere as well. last visit, Rob was our waiter and he rocked!

I stumbled upon BQM and was pleasantly surprised. Everything about this joint is great. The menu, service, and food could not be better.
Great addition to the Ossington strip.

My partner and I go here regularly since it is just down the street. However, even if it were farther away, we would make the trip. The burgers are fantastic (the Riverside is my go-to) and they have a great selection of beers. The service is always attentive (Melanie took care of us last time and was great in spite of being a solo waitstaff on a busy afternoon).

PIneapple and burger, who would have thought it could be so good ? At the Ossinigton location I upgrde my Hawaain burger to sirloin: both the meat and pineapple were juice and tasty. Mmmm, so good. Jessie, our server was fantastic: attentive, conscientious and fun. The only disappointment this trip was that they were out of dessert -- the caramel cheesecake on the menu - made locally - is out-of-this-wordl Make sure you save room. I highly recommend this place and will definately be back.
