Having tried poutines from a few different places in Toronto, I would have to say that the reviews definitely got this right. BQM does make one of the meanest poutines around! With a generous dollop of cheese curds, bacon bits and dark gravy, their poutine...More

Excellent friendly service, amazing burgers and fries. The gravy was fabulous! I had a banquet burger with fries(shoestring which were cooked perfectly) and gravy(full if flavour and not lumpy in the least. Chairs were a little uncomfortable, but atmosphere was good too.

Went to this joint as it was local to where i was staying. Place was packed, so had high expectations. The burger i had was well done, so a little dry for my tastes. Beer was delicious though, offer up a good selection.

Didn't love it in my first visit, glad I returned. It's now one of my favourite burger joints. Good quality, maybe a bit pricey for a burger, but sure beats some of the other nearby options.

Great solo experience, had a couple of fantastic Caesars to start (loss of freshly ground horseradish and a pickle! ) and then a fantastic burger! Highly recommended!

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
