Organic Big Burger - Brown's Line, anyone heard of it? On a daily deal site today...

ylsf Feb 21, 2011 11:10 AM

So many Burger joints,

This place is featured on a deal site today. It is located on Browns Line south of QEW. It says they have all organic food and they have boar, bison, beef, etc burgers, Are there farms that even raise organic boar/bison ?

Has anyone been to this spot before? Sounds interesting, I might buy one to take one for the team and report back, but, if it is horrible, I will skip!

Additional info:

Looks like someone from the site might have posted it here as advertisement (I can't access the only other thread mentioning this place, looks like it was deleted) so I won't post a direct link to their site but for those interested all of the deal sites are listed on Dailyradar.com

    So, when I did a search with "organic big burger" I couldn't find much but after a posted this thread it auto inserted the restaurant name and when I clicked on that link I found some discussion of the restaurant which was just called big burger before.

    Anyway, additional discussion here:


    Sounds like it is worth a buy.

      This place has been around for at least a decade, however they changed from Big Burger to Organic Big Burger years back and not sure if ownership changed as well. I have not eaten here, however a few co-workers have and they all raved about it. I did recenty try the french fries and they were amazing......very crispy and fresh tasting. It has always been known by word of mouth as a great place for a burger, although again I can't vouch as I've never been.

        I enjoyed it. Better than any other similar fast-food-y type places in the immediate area, for sure. Burgers are good, fries are good, unfortunate that it's stuck in that sketchy little plaza, but hey, diamond in the rough, right?

          You'll often find some great places in a "Sketchy little plaza."

              Dropped by today.
              Ordered the Texan burger combo. Pretty good, beef tasted great, fresh cut fries were awesome.

              I think they are calling themselves "OGB" now

                  Idontknow .... It's a ghost pop-up???? And I was eating ectoplasm this afternoon?

                  It's right besides the Pizza Pizza, right?
                  I assume they just did a name change to "OGB"

                    Last time I was there, it looked totally different and I don't remember what the name said, but I didn't even go in, figured they sold the place since the last time I was there it looked like the place was being run into the ground lol. I may have to drive by again to see what happened.

                        If I recall on the chalkboard inside, it may stand for: Organic Ground Beef

                          They sold the business. It's another Organic Burger place in there now. HAven't been it yet, but it's not a pop-up or ghost! Definitely real.

                            My husband was there recently and he said he went inside and it was not at all organic. I'll have to check it out for myself.

                              How could he tell from looking around that its not organic?

                              We went last year, and it was certainly an odd place, but the food was actually very good. It is not a typical granola-esque pretty organic place, but it was busy, and popular

                                He went inside and asked them. It was sold recently, last year it was still Organic Big Burger.
