When someone says burgers you instantly think American, but at Big Smoke their neighbors from the great white north are cooking up some of the most amazing burgers in the city down at box park. This Canadian burger joint oozes awesome. From the fun and friendly staff to the amazing juicy burgers you really can’t go wrong.
When we arrived we were warmly greeted by a member of staff, he asked if we had been before and directed us towards the counter where a tray of mouthwatering burgers were being served and we instantly knew we had picked the right place. The man behind the counter was lovely, so full of fantastic recommendations of burgers to try and he just oozed happiness – it was pretty infectious. We ordered three burgers, the big blue, the big smoke and a double cheese burger, all with a potion of fries and onion rings to share, for drinks we went with the ginger ale, cherry cola and root beer, we erred on the side out poutine but decided to save that adventure for another day – I struggle to get past the idea of milk curds.
Once we had sat down one of the waiters popped over to our table to ask us if we wanted to connect to the wifi to save our data which was something I really appreciated, he was so lovely about everything making sure we had everything we needed throughout our visit.
The sodas were delicious and we didn’t have to wait long for our burgers, served straight into the tray these burger beasts smelt amazing and looked absolutely mouthwatering. It didn’t take long before we tucked in.
I had the Big Smoke burger, a juicy parties topped with horseradish mayo, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce and tomato. It was amazing, just enough cheese and the parties to bun ratio was perfect.
The sides were wonderful, the fries were perfectly sales and the onion rings were crisp and the onions didn’t slide out of the batter when you bit into them. The large fries were more than enough to share between the three of us, along with the onion rings it made a perfect meal! One of my favorite things about these burgers is that they aren’t so big that you end up feeling too over full, just completely satisfied.
Another great thing about big smoke is that between 12&4pm you get a complimentary Illy Coffee with your meal! The perfect afternoon pick me up is a delicious latte.
I can’t wait to go back to Big Smoke and try another one of their awesome burgers!
