Good burger and fries. Fries could been a little crispier.. ordered a side of their house dipping sauce which was very good but at 2.50 a little overpriced for the small container.

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.
