I asked for a banquet burger and recieved it for take out. When I opened it at home it had no lettuce or even tomatoes on it and the burger was very bland. Will not return there.

“As a local, I'm telling you not to overlook this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

We live in Port Elgin and have no affiliation with the owners or this restaurant. But when out of curiosity, I was looking on Trip Advisor to see how Port Elgin restaurants were ranked, I was surprised to see very few reviews for Burger Trail.

This is fast food - don't get me wrong......but it will beat McDonald's, Union Burger or any of the chain restaurants. This is a family-owned burger spot with a few differences: one, it's licensed so you can have a beer or a cooler with your burger. Two, the menu includes a few surprises such as souvlaki and greek salad which are very good.

The service is always friendly and many locals swear by Burger Trail.

The interior is not fancy but it's clean and the food makes up for it. Onion rings are great, burgers are great - fish is good. We've never had a bad fast food meal here and will continue to support this local favourite with its friendly, cheerful owners.

Try it out!

“Quick, affordable, tasty and reliable!”

We are regular visitors to this area, and find that the Burger Trail has above average fare for a 'fast food' counter-type restaurant. The food tastes homemade, and the prices are very reasonable. This place stands out from the other counter serve similar establishments in the general area. It's certainly not fancy, but clean and decent - a great family restaurant.
