Union Burger
#1
Union Burger at King and Water Sts seems to be doing quite well. It seems to fit in a "sweet spot" between the fast food joints and the gourmet burger establishments. I've been a few times now and I find the burgers quite good.

I also checked them out during the Classic Car night in July. Their food was pretty good and I was surprised to see that a "combo" included a domestic beer if you wanted !

The only drawback was - at the time - the patio was not licensed, so if you wanted the combo with a beer, you had to eat it inside.

Anyone know if they got their patio licensed yet?

I'm a big fan of their burgers. I particularly liked the bourbon burger! Try it.

In Port Elgin, I was amused to see a combination Union Burger and Coffee Culture building, next to a Crabby Joe's. (All three are owned by the same company.)

We tried Union Burger on Saturday night. I'm a milkshake connoisseur, and I'd rate theirs 8/10 (which is excellent!).

It's really pricey ($8 for a burger, $4 more to make it a combo - fries and a fountain drink), but the food was very good. In general it really bothers me when places have "Combos" and then you have to pay the extra full price for the milkshake, but you don't get the drink in the combo - and there's no discount for not having the drink. So basically it was $4 for fries.

I'm right there with you.

Order the burger and milkshake next time -- Skip the calories and anger.

I adore a good burger so I put it to you, would you recommend Union Burger? If the shake was an 8/10, how would you rate the burger?

My favourite burger in KW so far is the bacon cheeseburger from the Crazy Canuck. I don't have a favourite veggie burger in KW yet (though I want to try The Yeti Cafe's beet burger). The Kenzington Burger Bar in Barrie and Orillia has a fantastic veggie burger, but the best I've had by far is the Beet and hemp burger from the Townhouse Tavern in Sudbury. I've never ordered anything else from there because that burger is so damn good.

Thanks for the input, guys. I also really like Frat Burger. Meat is ground from locally sourced beef so you can order it medium if you like.
