What a great place to have a hamburger. There are so many flavours, you will not know which one to pick. They also make burgers on order, things not on the menu. Fries and rings are both equally great. Loved my experience there. They also have a good drink selection. The place is superbly clean, the sitting comfortable. The staff... More

We were disappointed with the lunch we had here. Drinks served from measuring cups! A long wait for burgers that were just ok. In the end, $55 for 2 burgers and fries, including tax and tip (and that was without alcohol).

I had steamrollers (grilled). The be perfectly honest I think they were over dried. They do not come even close to oven baked antojitos you can get in Montana's. Some might enjoy over sized mugs (soft drinks). I was there with a group of four folks from work and they seem to enjoy the burgers. The only thing I can... More

Our family's favorite place for burgers. The appies are incredible (try the Wrecking Balls - kids love them!), the burgers are done perfectly, the poutine is delicious and the atmosphere is fantastic.

The quality of the food is very good and the service is always excellent. Quite possibly the best hamburger you can have anywhere. And the selection of toppings seems endless, fresh and lots. This is a chain hamburger joint. We have visited a number of times. We will be regulars when we visit Kingston.

This is a very nice venue for family or friends to enjoy awesome burgers. The menu is well thought out and has a step by step process for building your burger. There is also a lunch menu and a kids one. The food is delicious. Service is friendly and professional. Prices are reasonable.
