South Street Burger Co

Has anyone tried this place yet? Any good?

  1. Think Harveys with an extra $3 worth of condiments.

      Harvey's is awful now so I'm sure South Street must be better than that.. They've scaled back their menu to the point where it's the same as it was in the 80's. They recently brought back the Angus burger for a limited time but not the bun. It's basically a decent patty on those horrible wonder bread style buns.

        I ate there the other day, and it was pretty close to what HarryLloyd said over a year ago.

          But the patty tastes more real to me than Harvey's, which seems full of fillers...

      2. I've been to Laird. It smells great, but the burgers are overcooked and dry, though I liked them better than the dessicated hockey pucks now served at Licks. They do not deliver the "pink" burgers promised on the sign at the cash. Service is disorganized and waits can be long. Much better toppings than at other, similar places. Rings are fresh and crisp, but I noticed an odd underlying taste (I don't know what - possibly soy flour). Fries are OK, but seem to taste different than those at parent NY Fries. The shakes are very good.

          1. Thanks for the info all! I LOVE LOVE LOVE good juicy fresh burgers and will stay away from South Street Burger Co.

            1. I liked it the first time I tried it. On second visit, our burgers were dry and void of flavour. Definitely not good enough to make me stray from my favourite, Burger Shack on Eglington.
