Tommy's Burger Bar opening downtown (Cgy)

The Metropolitan Grill group is opening TWO new restos in the new Opus 8 tower across the street from the Uptown Theatre- a high end place called "Seven" (it's in a building called Opus 8 across the street from a restaurant haplessly called "Opus on 8th," and it's called "Seven." Thanks, fellas), and a second location of its Tommy's Burger Bar, which has its first location somewhere down south.
I hope this is a good thing. Happy to see Met's investment in the downtown and happy to have a location of this one I can get to easily- but is it good?
I haven't tried that Tommy's yet, but I'd like to. But I still have to try Boogie's on Edmonton Trail! I hear it's fantastic.
Boogies is weak. Tommy's has had good reviews....but going out for just a burger down Mac Trail seems a bit excessive. Have never been a big fan of The Met "chachi scene" so haven't rushed out to taste Tommy's. They supposedly have a good list so who knows.....? If you taste them I'd be interested to know more! Cheers John.
Tommy's is good. I went their for lunch a couple of weeks ago and was impressed with the food. It's a little pricey - it ends up about $15 for a burger and fries. It'll be a good addition to the downtown scene.
Fabulous garlic and sweet potato fries. The burgers aren't bad (not fabulous), so we end up going when we crave good fries.
The Veggie burger is definitly good though. I've had both that and their Chop salad. Both were very good. Definitely love their onion rings too.
