A friend took us here for dinner when we were in town for a visit. Wow - downtown has changed quite a bit since my time there! Anyhow, I got a real kick out of the menu and descriptions - it's worth a visit just to browse that! You can choose from 8 types of main 'between the bun' foundations... More

A tower of onion rings and more ways to top a burger than I ever thought possible! Cool decor and elements. And the burgers are awesome!

Not just the best gourmet burgers, but the best burgers. The choices are not only great but fun. Very creative combinations. The restaurant is also interesting and the staff is friendly. The prices are right in line with any other burger place...except the burgers here are actually worth it. Sides are good too. The only issue is that you get... More

I frequent the works as my place of employment is less than a block away. It would break the bank to dine here every day but once or twice a month is OK. They boast a large selection of burgers (to their credit, it is a large selection) however every time I go I forget what I have already eaten... More

The selection of burgers at The Works is massive, and there is also the option to build your own. The poutine comes in a bucket. The food is absolutely delicious.

I ha a coupon for this restaruant, or otherwise would not have eaten here. The service was slow, but when the food came it was good. There are way too many choices on the menu.

I went for the first time to The Works. The restaurant was less than half full. The staff was friendly and helpful. I ordered a Mary burger with fries and a Blue burger with fries to take out. It took 45 minutes to complete my order. When I spoke to the waitress about the inordinate long wait time she said... More

My husband and I frequent here a lot, and always after we get a buy one get one 1/2 off coupon in the mail. I have tried several different toppings but I always fall back on the Sexy Burger. Never had bad service, never had bad food. Definitely recommend!
