here they are. Not great pics i just took a random one with my iphone. the burger was pretty good. i'd say one of my top 3. one thing i didnt like tho was there was so much bacon inside that taking a bite , the fillings would fall out the other side lol. And def not ordering a burger and poutine...way too much for me

poutine was alright. I haven't had many in my life time though apart from the KFC one so theres not much i can compare it too..


id give it a 7/10 overall

didn't enjoying waiting quite a bit to be served as it was a little busy for a small joint with only 1 cook and 1 at counter. Would definitely go back though

I just went today.
Both the girl at the counter and the owner (Brian/Bryan?) was super nice.

I was the last one there today and I wasn't rushed at all, they started closing down but he told me to take my time. And that he wanted to make the best burger and to tell my friends. He was so friendly I didn't have the heart to tell him his burger was close to perfect, but not quite there.


Burger looked good and it was soooo close to an awesome burger.


House made bread, fresh beef, not overly cheesey and epic amounts of bacon.


My gripes about it were.

  • Patty was too thin, couldn't be crusted and medium on the inside. the beef almost felt secondary to the condiments.
  • This could be solved by a smaller bun, thus using the same meat to create a thicker patty.
  • Fries weren't crisp. They needed a 2nd fry. But I like that they were thick cut and creamy soft on the inside.
  • Too much ketchup and mustard.
  • Patty was a touch on the lean side. Beef fat is essentially free. They need more fat in the patty. While it wasn't dry, it definitely wasn't like biting into a ground ribeye.
  • A touch over seasoned. Could hold back on the salt because the bacon was very generous.


If they just used the same amount of beef, but changed the shape of the patty, they could really be epic.

I'd give it a 7/10.
Burger had soul, fresh ingredients really do speak for themselves here.

You have valid points on how they could improve on the burger. Why not go back and make a friendly suggestion?

Cause the owner seemed very happy to want to serve the best burger ever.
Who am I to tell him how it should be done?

Seems a bit arrogant for me to tell a restaurateur how their food should be made...

Depends on personalities, not everyone is as open to critiscm

I've met some people in my career that have tremendously bloated ego's, no matter what you say they will think they are right simply because they have "done it longer than you". IMHO that's the wrong way to approach life, nobody is perfect. Everyone is always learning. Self-improvement begins with being receptive to the good and the bad.

Yeah, girl was blonde.


I always evaluate so if it's good, I can go home and make my own like a cheap ass Asian.




Here's how I see a burger.

The beef should be the star of the show, nothing should take away from the meat. If it doesn't compliment it, it doesn't belong on the burger.
The patty should be treated like a steak. This means a crust, and rested to stay juicy. Ideally, it's freshly house-ground, meaning they can serve it medium.
In order to be crusted, but still medium, there needs to be a high flat-top heat to patty thickness ratio. Otherwise, you will either have no caramelizing or overcooked patty or both.
This is why the Jnr Bacon Cheeseburger at Wendy's fails. There is no color on the meat.

The bun should be soft, but stay intact until you finish the burger.
The bun should be toasted.

There should be an element of freshness in the burger, this gives your palate a break from the heavy, rich ingredients like the bacon, mushrooms, cheese and meat only to be smacked by a flavor explosion of those same ingredients again. You are going to be hard pressed to find anything more effective than a ripe tomato and iceberg lettuce here.


The meat was medium well instead of medium rare like I asked, but still had no crust. There are 3 reasons for this.
1. The flat-top wasn't hot enough to create a good crust.
2. There was not enough fat used, both in the burger (that would have rendered out) and on the flat-top to fry up that crust.
3. The patty was too wide, but not thick enough.

The 50's bun broke. And it wasn't toasted.
It also wasn't super soft.

The overuse of yellow American mustard drowned out the flavor of the patty.



The burger was a perfect size I think.
I could see the patties in their cooler, it's raw ground beef, not frozen or brought in.
House-made bread shows a level of care.
Generous amounts of bacon, the most I've gotten in a non-bacon-special burger.


The price was good too. It really wouldn't cost them more to make a better burger and to tweak their bun recipe.
The only cost increases I could see in order to bring it up to a 9/10 would be a proper 2nd fry on their fries and toasting their buns.


So close.

Tried #9, the burger/cheddar.
Whoever suggested it, you owe me 8 bucks.

I knew it was dumb to order it, friends knew it too, but I felt crazy.
Shit burger. Frozen patty, and just mediocre in general. McDonalds is better.

You need your tastebuds checked. & Stick to the Chinese food....

Here are my notes....

I know it's a chain but I'm a sucker for R&Robins Whiskey Ched Chicken burger.

- I've recently had the burger at Belgian Fries, I was surprised, homemade patty, decent fresh burger, but fries were Meh, fresh cut ones. Overall, hard to complain at 10bucks.

- I've tried the burger at Martini's on Broadway, decent burger as well.

- Cactus the burger, it's good, great ingredients, but at the pricepoint, no thanks.

It was me who suggested it but I had it 10 YEARS ago. It was Drow who recently had it. I think you had high expectations.

C'mon, don't be so harsh. You'd be surprised. A lot of people actually do order it. And I don't mean white people neither!
