Proper good quality burger (signature Black Swan), very friendly staff, prompt service for a good turnover, but not rushed.

Stopped in for dinner at about 7:40 on a Friday night. Only one other table. Great decor. $5 pint special. Black Swan EPA ( one of my favs) was excellent. We both had delicious burgers, cooked perfectly. Fries were great, try them with a side of garlic aioli. Very glad we stopped in, will be back.

What an amazing place. Weary and exhausted from a long day waiting at Stratford general for our granddaughter to be born, we sought out on a Saturday night a place to eat. With welcoming smiles, the staff at Downy street burgers, quickly set up a table for eight, and got us some drinks. The service, attention to detail, and the... More

I tried the black Swan burger, which was amazing and my Mom had a Mexican burger that was the days special, and she really enjoyed it. A bit pricey, but delicious and different.

Great portebello burger cooked to perfection. Its hard to find a good place to eat with dietary options. Just ask the chef here, and its not a problem. Awesome burger, great pineapple spicy chutney instead of mayo. Thank you.... enjoyed every morsel. .

There is only so much you can do to a burger and Downie Street offers all the different flavors that are possible. I had a Blues Burger with blue cheese and the ubiquitious fries. My gurest had soup & salad. Nothing fancy just good food and beer.

I had the dry spice burger and was surprised. The meal was well prepared and with top notch ingredients. It's a smaller more intimate environment inside which is pleasant. Our orders were prepared in the right amount of time i.e. Not so quickly you know they took shortcuts and not too long either.

A friend and I popped in here before seeing a show at the Avon Theatre and the food was delicious!! I had a burger with goat cheese and roasted red peppers and my friend had a classic cheese burger with bacon. The server understood our time constraint as we had theatre tickets. The food was fast, fresh and delicious. I... More

A group of my husband's co-workers gather to celebrate their friendships that go beyond the place they were employed. Sometimes I tag along. So they all picked Downie Street Burgers to support one of their own who bought back this restaurant. Not only could they not stop raving about how great the food was, they are telling everyone else too.... More
