Excellent friendly service, amazing burgers and fries. The gravy was fabulous! I had a banquet burger with fries(shoestring which were cooked perfectly) and gravy(full if flavour and not lumpy in the least. Chairs were a little uncomfortable, but atmosphere was good too.

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon to grab a late lunch. Place is popular and had a great neighbourhood vibe; lots of full tables, folks inside and out on the patio (despite being chilly), lots of animated conversation. Menu looked good and beer tasted good. Probably short-staffed and not expecting such a crowd maybe, the sole server was run... More

Our son lives in the area and mentioned BQM as a good choice for fresh, not frozen, burgers and fries. Small space and packed at 8:30pm Saturday night...so we walked a bit and found a perfect table at 9:40pm. Friendly, attentive server. Delicious burger and fries. Daily beer specials are worth returning for....next time we'll come Friday for the $5... More

We first visited BQM Burger almost a year ago. We we thrilled then. This visit proved just as good. This is one of those little neighbourhood places you wish you lived nearby. Their burgers are fantastic and I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. But the show stoppers for me are the Warm Kale Salad and... More

Went to this joint as it was local to where i was staying. Place was packed, so had high expectations. The burger i had was well done, so a little dry for my tastes. Beer was delicious though, offer up a good selection.

Didn't love it in my first visit, glad I returned. It's now one of my favourite burger joints. Good quality, maybe a bit pricey for a burger, but sure beats some of the other nearby options.

Great solo experience, had a couple of fantastic Caesars to start (loss of freshly ground horseradish and a pickle! ) and then a fantastic burger! Highly recommended!

Booked for 7 people on a Saturday night. Great service, got a great suggestion for my beer. I loved the skinny fries and the burger was awesome, the tomatoes tasted fresh, the goat cheese, caramelizes onions were also very good. I love the fact that you can choose your meat (or get it veggie). The beef seems to be really... More

We visited on Halloween in search of a good burger. What we found was a truly GREAT burger! The patty was meaty, very tasty and cooked perfectly. The trimmings were top notch. We sampled the poutine with a very rich gravy - so delicious! And the warm kale and goat cheese salad was brilliant. The deep fried pickles were very... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
