I enjoyed a lot my dinner at Zombie Burger. Our server was very kind and brought the food very fast. I strongly recommend to go there! The only bad thing: the place was cold, but as some others restaurants in this country.

Had lunch with a group of seven and really enjoyed the food. Ate outside on the patio since it was a sunny day. The burgers are absolutely top-notch and worth a visit by themselves. The sides and drinks just add on to the good times.

Visited here on the way through Iowa... get the burger with the Mac n cheese buns (they bread and deep fry Mac n cheese to make "buns" somehow...). Also ordered the poutine as an app and that was good as well.

The food offerings beyond the standard burger are great. The Zombie sauce for fries is a must. The decor is creepy but cool. This place offers toppings and burger combination for every appetite, including a macaroni and cheese bun burger. Come with an appetite, as...More
