Gourmet Burger. It was very good but too much $$$$
I just came back from lunch at "Le Gourmet Burger". I feel it was a very expensive lunch for a trio (1 double burger, 1 sweet potatoes fries and a 1 coke) My total bill was 21$ all taxes included in their prices.
It took almost 30 minutes before I got my meal from order to first bite. I was starving.
Place is to small to sit there with friends and your clothes will have the wonderful smell of smoke from the grill and the oil from the fryers.
basic burger is 5$ it includes lettuce tomatoes and caramelized onions.
Where the party starts is with the toppings that kill ya!
jalapeno hot peppers 1$
Sundried tomato Pesto 1$
Sautéed Mushrooms 2$
Swiss cheese 2$
Sweet potato fries cone 3$
It was a good burger but not 21$ good
let's say I didn't have the double patty. It would have been 3$ less
at 18$ and it would still be too much for what it was. A trio!
At that price it wasn't that good to go back.

I wouldn't eat anywhere with a $3 Coke. That's the first menu item that clues me whether everything else will be rip off. No way pop should be more than $2, and even that's pushing it.
(Do they have a license? Lemme guess, domestic pint is 8 or 9 bucks, $6 or 7 just for a bottle of Labatt)
Mental note: try Burger de Ville when in Mile End later this week.
Wow that's quite expensive! There's a place called Burger De Ville on St. Laurent and on Westminster that has amazing burgers for a lot less. I suggest you try it out. The burgers are 100% real beef. The bacon and cheese burger starts off at $5.50 and all other toppings are free! (jalapeno peppers, sauteed mushrooms, caramelized onions... you name it). Their steaks are really good too. Although, their wait time is similar to Gourmet Burger or a little faster. Regardless I suggest you give this place a try one day. I guarantee you will be satisfied.
@VickPham: I know burger de ville on st-Laurent is like 4.50$ for a basic burger and you get lots of free topping for free including sauteed mushrooms and sauteed onions.
They also gove you a large portion of fries usually more than enough for two people. Their Caesar salad is excellent
The burger is not expensive at 5$ tax in at Le gourmet but the toppings kill you!

I know, right? You add up the toppings and that's like a whole 'nother sammich.
In re: the OP, no matter how good a burger purports to be no one should pay that much for toppings. It's better to have specialty burgers that utilize them and charge accordingly. When toppings are that much, well...frankly, it seems silly. Now if we can convince Richard Blais to come up here and open a Flip, the specialty burger thing will be very very worth it.
@Celfie: A big lunch ?!?! It's the same burger with the toppings. I didn't get a half pound of toppings ;) this is way to expensive in my book!
Burger de ville gives a tons of toppings included in the price of a basic burger.
I got maybe less than an once of sautéed mushrooms and I think it's cheaper to buy magic mushrooms ;) And they weren't even freshly sautéed. Cold from the fridge :(
Unless you stick to a basic burger way to expensive for what you are getting.
