Yummy veg burger and the Beech sauce is delicious! Great atmosphere especially with the garage doors open, feels like on the patio.

Quite amazing selection of toppings and dressings on any burger style; service is slow and the place is often noisy. At the (high) price, a worthwhile occasional experience.

Although my husband likes this place I am a little on the fence. First off the bat, the tower of rings that they push you to start with is huge, but the quality of the Rings is quite poor. Rather that having huge onions rings fried in batter stacked up, try making the rings smaller thus more palatable. The burgers... More

The works is a design your own burger joint and it is really good. Excellent selections and different and unique. A little crowded so a bigger space would be nice. But it was good.

Great quick and efficient service, the only regret i have is not dressing up the Burger before heading back to my hotel. Fries are fresh and the choices are terrific. My daughter had the KD Vegetarian Burger and loved it, i had the Pizza traditional burger.

I have to admit that usually Burgers are not my favorite as I always faced a kind of strange feeling in my stomach after eating a burger, don't know why. But here I was so much happy with that one. First I was amazed by the unbelievable selection of burgers and combination options. Then I chose one of the "Canadian... More

The Works are spread all over Ottawa. This one, in Westboro, is a bit of a parking challenge, and can be a bit cramped - don't plan on having super private conversations! But the service is reliable, if sometimes it's hard to flag down a waitress. The aesthetic is fun, from drinking out of measuring cups, to enjoying the stream... More
