My wife and I recently went to the Q&B for dinner and we both had the burger-it was outstanding and easily the best burger I've had in Toronto thus far. The beef was hand-chopped with marrow providing added richness. You can choose from aged cheddar or stilton plus house-made bacon, also the burger is done to your liking. I had medium-rare and it came perfectly cooked with fresh garnishes. In the future, I would probably order it medium or more, just because the hand-chopped meat makes it bit toothsome. The fries were also excellent. They were thick-cut russets, which I prefer, instead of the more popular Yukon Gold frites. Accompanied by a house-made curry ketchup, I wanted more of them even though the portion was ample. At $17 this awesome burger is less than half the price of the Bymark Burger, so it's a great value too. They have a limited but well chosen selection of draft beers to accompany your burger, including a fresh cask ale and St. Ambrose Oatmeal Stout.

bogie, nice review.
I'm curious, did the server tell you that the marrow was added? The online menu just mentions handchopped beef. I'm surprised they don't mention the marrow part on the menu- but I'm glad you drew attention to this. I want to know when a chef is feeding me marrow ;-)
Do you know if Q + B also offers a handchopped burger that does not contain marrow?
You know, maybe I should retract that statement about the marrow. I had read this somewhere before (I don't remember where) and when I tried the burger the richness seemed to confirm that this is true-but maybe it was just the great quality of the beef. It doesn't appear on the menu, I'll have to ask next visit.
