I am really into burgers. This is a good burger joint but not an amazing burger joint. I would not go out of my way go back but I would go back. Better than fast food chain burgers.

At Big Smoke Burger, we source fresh Canadian ingredients in order to deliver the best possible product. We pride ourselves on serving only Canadian AAA beef. Our ground chuck is made to our specifications and it is always fresh, never frozen. We offer hand-cut French fries made fresh every day and cooked in trans fat-free canola oil. Homemade milkshakes, fresh salad greens, traditional poutine, and a selection of unique beverages are also available.
