Burger Quest: The WORKS

The WORKS | Toronto | Gourmet Burger Bistro

The most recent addition to my Burger Quest list, The WORKS. A burger joint turned franchise that redefines what a true burger with “the works” on it really means. Offering over 30 burgers with all the “works” toppings you could ever dream of, The WORKS puts their money where they beef is by offering 100% Canadian hand-made fresh beef, that is flamed-grill to your liking. And if beef ain’t enough, their selection of chicken, elk, turkey or veggie burgers might just also hit the spot.

But before stepping into their world of burgers, I’d suggest you check out their hand scooped shakes. Made with real ice-cream and served on big and fun measuring glasses, so you never ran out of the good stuff.

Chef’s Creation Milkshakes

Or just default to their appies and venture into the new Baconism II menu items. Like their Bacon-Wrapped Wrecking Balls, a succulent and mouth watering starter that is made with cheddar and potato, wrapped with juicy bacon and deep fried, then served with a roasted bacon garlic aioli for dipping pleasure.

Now onto their succulent burgers. Following the Baconism II tune, the Gettin’ Piggier With It WORKS new addition is their signature 8oz bacon and beef pattie, loaded up with Canadian bacon, cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, bacon ketchup and crunchy onion strings. Sorry, did I mention this burger had bacon in it?

Another favourite, and part of their top 10 favs, is The Hipster. Now, don’t confuse this for a white millennial  in an urban area. This burger stands on it’s own with Havarti cheese, avocado and caramelized onions. The beef pattie, avocado and onions are all covered and wrapped in the Havarti cheese, making this burger one of a kind in their menu.
