I was quite interested to read about the Great Burger Kitchen that is new and getting rave reviews. This new location on Gerrard just west of Jones. The same can't be said for one of the original haunts that opened in our neighbourhoud that being the Burger Shoppe.
I had frequented this place early on, and was quite impressed by the quality of the food, it was young folk who were running the joint (so let's support the locals), and the price was right. I had not been in awhile and was rather surprised at what had happened to this place. First off food less than good. To top it off, this place less than clean. As I sat next to the open kitchen to wait for my food , I thought of leaving as it was less than clean. And the staff were less than clean themselves. And as i continued to look around the place realized the floor hadn't been washed in some time, as nor the ceiling fans or anything else. Suffice it to say it totally and I mean totally turned me off.
If you're prepared to eat food that is cooked in less than desirable conditions by staff who seem to care less about the whole issue of food preperation, then stick with this place. if not then move onto our next local burger joint which is on a better track.
My ratings- Very poor don't bother.
