The staff were very friendly & accommodating. However, I didn’t think my salad had any kind of wow factor which I like to experience when eating out. I ordered the beet, apple & goat salad—all ingredients that I love—but maybe the dressing just didn’t have any flavour. I ordered the smashed burger with the salad & didn’t care for the taste of the burger at all (maybe undercooked or a little “off”), so I removed the meat, hoping to enjoy the salad—I was just okay.

Not up to usual par. Burger did not have its standard crisp outer edge, fries were soggy. Not typical of either location. Service was fantastic. No problem. Been here many times, of course will continue to go, everyone has off days.

Amazing food and service. Burgers and fries are to die for and so are their shakes and banana splits! Good service. Music was a bit too loud but otherwise it was an amazing dining experience

Great location and good food. Wish the fried chicken sister restaurant was available since I love fried chicken.
Very generous portions and lots of choice.
Great milkshake.
Would definitely come back again.

We went here for my husband’s birthday lunch.
Great menu with a lot of drink choices

Everyone loved the shakes for dessert and you can have them with alcohol.

The parm fries were not enjoyed by our group. They found them disappointing

We’ve been to your place several times , cause in our opinion it is the best burger in town. I love the fact I can try a draft that I’ve never tried before just to see if I like it , next time I’m going to get the Flight . This is the first time my wife and I had dessert, one of the extreme Milkshakes, pretty incredible !!!!

Awesome as usual. The only problem is that I order too many apps (because they are so delish) and then I’m so full when my burger comes 🤦🏻‍♀️ get the popcorn !

HAMbrgr is a great restaurant, whichever location you choose. The food is great quality and the portions are very satisfying. My favourite meal is made up of the BYOB burger, sharing poutine and a chocolate milkshake. So yummy.

Our server was one of the best ones we have had! I forget her name but she was training the new guy! He also was really good! They both kept checking up on us more frequently compared to most waiters and waitresses. Food and drinks were amazing. Wish the tables werent so close as the people we originally sat beside were extremely loud and annoying. But overall, was a great night and will be back for more!

Visiting from Toronto and honestly the best burger I've ever had! Easy to make it keto with a lettuce wrap and keto toppings

We go to HAMBRGR on a regular basis - generally the service is good and we rarely have issues with the food. This time the parm fries were literally swimming in grease - and the burgers/chicken on our sandwiches were both slightly overcooked.

Since HAMBRGR reopened - we have found that the food quality has not been good prior to renovations. Whether this is related to new staff, and or growing pains, it is difficult to say.

We will still give HAMBRGR another try.

Overall it was delicious food and a good experience. The patio music was a little loud and made conversation a bit difficult but it is a great outdoor space that they have.

I would say i was a little disappointed in the garlic Parmesan fries. Probably because I was expecting them to be coated in some kind of dry rub mix but instead it was regular fries with Parmesan shredded on top.

The KFC burger I got was DELICIOUS. And my husband loved his Maui Wowi burger too. The beers/drinks they offer are great as well! I will definitely be back.

Excellent beef burgers. The KFC burger took longer to be served than the other burgers because the chicken was so thick. Unfortunately when it did come, the chicken had been way over cooked. When our server found out, she was very apologetic and took it off the bill. Excellent service!

Great taste! Quite busy on a holiday Monday...thankfully I made a reservation.
Service was a little slow, but friendly. Our group of four was seated at the long table facing the street and against the garage door, so was a little difficult for us to all talk as a group. Classic fries are awesome!
One person in our group ordered the loaded fries...huge portion!
A table near us had the tater tot fondue, that's a must-try for my next visit! :)
If you love heat...try El Diablo and loaded fries.

Easily the best sit-down burger joint I’ve ever been to. This place crushes the competition. I got the HamOnt burger and it was nuts. Fries were outstanding. Topped it off with the Birthday Suit shake for dessert...thank gosh I made room. I will undoubtedly be back in the future (probably next weekend). Great value for your money. An absolute gem of a spot.
