The WORKS famous gourmet burgers

Downtown Oakville is thrilled to be home to the newest location of The WORKS Burger Bistro, Ottawa’s original and award-winning gourmet burger bistro since 2001 featuring an urban factory bistro-style restaurant that promises to serve up the best tasting burgers and more.

On Thursday, December 15th, The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro opens its doors and invites guests to come out and try what everyone is talking about – on the house! Monetary donations are welcome, with 100% of the proceeds going to local charity Distress Centre Oakville.

With over 68 varieties of mouthwatering burgers to choose from, The WORKS has something for everyone. From the good old standard cheeseburger named the ‘Ho Hum #1’ to the outrageous ‘SK8R Boy’ – with peanut butter, jack cheese and bacon strips! Looking for something more exotic? Try the ‘Electric Blue’ with Danish blue cheese, walnut chunks and a smattering of Dijon-haze sauce, or the ‘Three Ring Binder’, topped with sautéed mushrooms, chipotle mayo, gouda cheese and three crunchy onion rings.

Using only the finest blend of Canadian beef with no fillers, and hand-prepared every day, each WORKS Gourmet Burger is “Live Fire Grilled” to ensure mouth-watering perfection. You can also choose from a whole chicken breast, ground turkey burger, veggie burger, or a Portobello mushroom cap or even domestic Elk instead of beef. And children will love the ‘Kidz Menu’, with choices geared especially for them.

The WORKS Burger is proudly Canadian. From the company owners to the freshest beef, from the potatoes for their signature fresh cut fries as well as milkshakes and cheese made from 100% Canadian dairy products. The WORKS Burger also serves a great selection of ice cold Canadian beer as well as wines from Ontario. There’s also a great choice of sides to complement your burger, from fresh salads to ‘High Octane Poutine’ and much more. And save some room for one of the over 50 flavours of classic shakes, ranging from vanilla to chocolate orange.

“At The WORKS, the ultimate gourmet burger experience goes beyond the 100 per cent Canadian beef burgers, fresh cut fries, classic milkshakes and ice cold beer.  It’s about getting the community involved and building an environment and menu that reflects the great town of Oakville,” says Bruce Miller, co-owner of The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro. “Guests will enjoy burgers named by local personalities, including Mayor Rob Burton, 8-time LPGA champion Sandra Post and New York Islanders John Tavares, who all proudly call Oakville home.”

Connie Bernardi from Ottawa is a huge fan of The WORKS Burger Bistro. “The WORKS is the place to go when you really want to indulge in that craving for a really good hamburger. They’re totally delicious and their topping combinations are a foodie experience that you have to try out. I am a creature of habit and always get the ‘Avril’s Avocado Avalanche’ – grilled eggplant, avocado, salsa loco and feta cheese. Ridiculously good! And the Tower-O-Rings as a starter – heavenly!”

Come see what everyone is talking about and enjoy the best gourmet burger and more! The new WORKS Burger Bistro is located at 149 Lakeshore Road East in Downtown Oakville. Check out the delicious menu at
