I had never heard of this place before. Took a chance. Great burgers. Like ordering a pizza. Any topping you want and they have a lot. Prompt service and comfortable seating.

Food was good. Bit expensive but overall it was a good meal. Service was very slow. Place was not even close to half full and the server was slow as slow.

I have never been disappointed with the burgers at The Works. They definitely have something for everyone! Excellent fries and rings, many unique choices for burgers and excellent service keep new coming back.

I heard a lot of great things about this chain restaurant yet when I went I thought it was mediocre at best. I like that you have a lot of options, however, the quality of the burger is average. I have no complaints about the service or the atmosphere. I simply can't justify the price for the quality of the... More

This is the first works that I had ever been to. It is one of our choice restaurants in Guelph. Has never disappointed. The food is always good and the staff is always pleasant and helpful. Parking can be a little ways away, but worth it.

Seemingly hundreds of ways to get a burger, including choice of bun, chicken, beef etc. inside bun, 100 or so specific burger selections. Try the tower of rings. Service can be slow. Great atmosphere in the summer when big doors open to the street.

We really enjoyed the custom burgers and other fun food. These guys know how to grill your favorite burger and fries. Pricing is a little on the high side but not bad. Well worth the visit.

I love The Works, well I love burgers, that being said there is much to be desired by The Works in Guelph. Great burgers when done right, but avoid when its busy. The service is slow and far to many times we have received our food under cooked. Now they try and warn you of a little pink but we... More
