The patty is juicy and thick, and it has the smokey flavour from the charcoal grill. The patty is cooked so that it's just a little pink in the middle, so that it's nice and tender. It's also not seasoned with fancy spices or garnishes; it's just a simple, honest beef patty. I ordered it with cheese, bacon, pickles, jalapenos peppers, dijon mustard, ketchup, tomatoes and onions.

They weren't stingy on the ingredients. Then again, my only points of references are mainly McDonald's and other fast food franchises, for the most part. I've tried the burgers at Mr. Steer's and Gourmet Burger too, and this burger definitely outshined theirs in terms of portion and ingredients.
Look at it! It's like... Mount Burger. It just needs a tiny olive cross on top and it would be complete. The cheese was melted onto the patty, and the bacon was crispy and chewy. The bun was fluffy and soft, and soaked up the juice of the patty without falling apart. The onions and tomatoes were crisp and fresh, and were abundant enough to lessen the heaviness of the meats. Overall, very enjoyable!
|Poutine de Ville|
We also tried the Poutine de Ville. This poutine contains a black peppercorn gravy with chunks of goat cheese. The fries themselves were fresh and crispy, and still had the potato skins intact, which I like. The gravy was a little on the salty side, but the peppercorn gave it a nice spicy kick. The goat cheese was a nice touch, but I prefer my cheese to be stringy and messy in poutines.
The price is pretty cheap for the amount of food that you're getting, so this restaurant is definitely for students. I had the bacon cheeseburger with an iced tea, and my friends and I split a large Poutine de Ville three ways, so my bill came up to around $12. I think that if you ordered the burger, the drink and a side of fries, it would have come out to around the same amount.
Final Grade: B+
Apart from the fact that I went through a bazillion napkins (the owner even gave us extra when we ordered, warning us that we were going to need them), I quite enjoyed my experience at Burger de Ville. The food was good for the price, the service was friendly, and the restaurant looked clean and simple, and the best part? I no longer have to stress over which bus and route I have to take in order to enjoy a simple yet delicious burger.
