My friend took me for lunch today. We had a lovely Sangria to start. I had the goats cheese burger and it was fabulous. My friend had the pulled pork. My soup was a spicy chicken and really good. Nice atmosphere. Lovely server. And cool (temperature wise).

I have been here several times, usually on weekdays, so no problem with long waits. A great variety of tasty burgs with nice beers to accompany.

I ordered take out as I was solo for dinner in town. I appreciate gourmet burgers and I thought this place would fit the bill. It's a little pricey, but caters to the local theatre crowd who are more price inelastic as we used to say in economics. I simply ordered the bacon cheeseburger which apparently some travel blog rated... More

A great place for an early, casual dinner after the matinee. Friendly staff, great location to downtown/Avon Theatre. The Blues Burger was terrific - I love blue cheese! The sweet potato fries were superb! Crispy outside, soft inside - perfect! I had asked for mayo to go with them, but the waitress advised their garlic aioli was a better choice... More

If you're planning to see a show in downtown Stratford, please take my advice and don't try this place an hour before the show. Yes, it's across the street from the Avon Theatre, but they seemed ill equipped to handle the theatre crowd looking for a meal before the show when we went last Saturday. We arrived at 7pm hoping...

The first thing we appreciated about Downie Street Burger is that they were able to accommodate us pre-theatre without a reservation and seated us almost immediately. The next thing we noticed was their wide assortment of local bevvies which we love as it supports local business and is sure to taste fresh. I had a Thornbury cider while my husband... More

I took a school group to DSB after attending a matinee at the Stratford Festival. Joe, the new manager, let us preorder and Nick, our server, was ready for us when we arrived at the restaurant. Our dishes arrived quickly -- freshly made and delicious. The portions were so huge, nobody clean his plate -- not even the teenaged boys!... More

We stopped by for a quick bit before going to the theater and found their prices high for what we received. I ordered the $17.00 burger which was 'average'. This location is also fairly small and may fill up a dinner time, especially if people are in town for a play. We also went to Bentley's on the main strip... More

This restaurant is located across the street from the Avon Theatre. There is a limited menu offering a variety of gourmet burgers and wraps. The Sante Fe wrap is great but spicy! The fries are fresh cut and the onion rings are made with red onion for a bit of a different flavour. The portions are large. The seating is... More

It's been awhile since I've been here. Was told it's under new management. I ordered the cowboy burger with fries and gravy, as did the person I was with. The burger was good, different type of bun. Bun is a little too small for the burger patty. We weren't impressed with the fries. They were undercooked and very bland tasting.... More
