Burger de ville :
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this place. I heard that this joint could compete with the previous burgers I had. Being a fan of burgers and also well, a man with meat-craving (no homo) I had to try it out. What is nice about it is that it is situated RIGHT next Concordia University Loyola campus, so it is a place with short distance (sort of) for students, to walk or take the bus to. From what I heard this joint is run by a family. It showed they show great hospitality to new comers! So when we arrived we were asked to make our choice. You actually make your order to the counter and then sit down. They, then, bring the food to you. Their menu is pretty simple. Burgers, poutine, fries, steak and salad are the choices. What hit me in the face, although it is never fun, this time it was kinda nice, was the price.
Burger : 4.50$ + 0.50$ for cheese + 0.50$ for bacon
and other derivative range from [4.50$ to 6.50$]
Poutine : [4.50-7.50$]
Fries are 2.50$
Beverage is 2$ and unlimited refill
They also offer steak, although I never tried I heard it was REALLY good. As you can see the price is really competitive with Buns. Oh! I also forgot to mention they have various toppings that you can add on your burger for free, including caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, HP sauce and jalapeno peppers. There you go. The Golden Secret = Variety + Free.
I had the Bacon Burger w/ caramelized onions and HP sauce.
One thing you must know is that they don’t freeze their meat. It is ALWAYS FRESH. So it goes without saying that the patty was so juicy. The patty is the spotlight of the burger. Whenever you take a bite, the burger telepathically tells your brains “Fresh isn’t it” *one eye-brow up + smirk*. So yeah, it is the kind of burger that cannot stop taking a bite. The bacon tasted like REAL bacon. I mean the one you do at home for breakfast. The caramelized onions with the HP sauce had a nice taste that went along with everything else. The bun is really good too. I ended up finishing the burger under 7 minutes, my Pepsi untouched, with only two bites of fries. I just couldn’t stop.
So let’s review this :
Nice buns + THICK fresh meat patty + crunchy bacon + melted HP sauced caramelized onions = I’m going back
I also took the Spicy fries :
They were good. Definitely better than most of the french fries I tried in my life. I would consider that top tiers along, with McDonald’s, Costco, and Belle Province. The spicy fries are the same price as the regular one. The only difference is that they had some nice spice/salt mixture to it. It was really pleasant to eat. mmmm. I want some right now…That is a lot of fries for one person, for 2.50$. Oh! I also forgot to mention that the fries are fried in peanut oiled… So watch out for allergies other than that, 0% cholesterol!
