Always good food at this location. I went to one in downtown Toronto and they gave me the absolute worst experience I have had at any Works, so it was refreshing to go to this one! Very good and unique meals.

I'm sorry but a burger is not just a burger and at The Works that it so true. Fantastic food, great staff and always clean. Many more visits to come!

Came with the kids. Everyone ordered something unique from their burger menu. Everyone loved the meal- and also raved about the fries too. A few of us had the lunch size burgers( offered as a special even on weekends). Totally with the visit.
