Burger Factory on Main Street. Anyone else try this place?

If this place isn’t shut down in a year I’ll be surprised. The buns were stale, the Utility beef sandwich had no meat, it was all cheese and fell apart (that bun was stale as well) The poutine is mozzarella and not curds. Thick gross gravy. It’s horrid, and I’ll pretty much eat anything.

How can places find this acceptable? It’s not like cheese curds are expensive or hard to find. SAD!!

I was hoping no one bashed me, so thank you. But geez mozzella when you clearly have poutine on the menu. And it was disgusting. I’d pay for someone to try it. That place can’t last.

It probably won't with food quality as you report, as well as with the changing demographics here and better burger places out there.

I quite enjoy the poutines from Heritage Fish n Chips. Give 'em a go.

Thanks Alpha. Since we don't eat fish we've never been there, but I'll give the poutine a go. I know its been mentioned many times, but Milton lacks a bit in the food category. I mean we have Pasqualinos, but lets be honest. Its so busy that its slipping a bit overall. I don't like that they don't allow corkage, as I have a pretty extensive cellar and would like to bring my own. Hell, just charge me $30/bottle to uncork, thats cool. The other night 2 adults and 3 kids was $777 with tip, and their NY Strip Special was $59!!.

Yesterday we did Casa Americo and the food always seems to be good but service is a bit off. They did have a band last night and that scared me because of the shear small size of the place. It was pretty good thou. Marquee has awesome service and great food. That place needs a few more light bulbs thou. It's always dark in there... LMAO.

No cheese curds and no bacon = WTF :wink:

I guess you can off pass smokey beef strips and mozzarella as the real thing and people will pay for it.

I hope you at least felt you were seriously ripped off. You'd be hard pressed to burn up that much in the best resto markets in the world, but MILTON??!! And yes I am familiar with that place, it ain't all that really.

BTW, Just got back from Montreal, and poutine here should technically classified as cultural appropriation, and banned.

We really could use (and I hate to say it) but a KEG in milton. As a chain restaurant, they still seem to get it right, and as big as they are, they even allow corkage. I think it’s only $15 from what I remember. I rather bring a good bottle of my own then pay 2-3x more for some $20 bottle.

On another note, there is a nice place in Oakville called Cucci. They actually mark bottles up only 10-20%. If even that. Food is pretty good

That’s some serious gluttony. Did your family just come in off the battlefield?

When you order the $7.50 flat waters, do you wear a monocle and top hat?

When you said "kids" I assume kids, not adults. You basically had 5 adults. Still a little insane.

I refuse to drink tap water at restaurants. It’s almost like they fish it out of the pond. Why is it that it always smells like fish, but my tap water at home is fine. I was a plumber back in the day, tap should be fine.

As for the mains. It was myself, Fiancee, my daughter and her friend who are both 17, and my fiancée daughter who is 7.

That bottle of wine is $18, but they sell it for $90.

I don’t think I’ve ever detected a fishy smell of water at restaurants, or anything off-putting. Maybe your sense of smell is better than mine.

I get going out and spending money on a good meal, I do it from time to time myself of course. But what I’ll never do is pay $7.50 for someone else’s tap water, or a $70 markup on a mediocre bottle of wine. Fancy coffees for $15? Bahahahhaa they can go f**K themselves. Been to pasqualinononis before and our bill was nowhere near $150/person.

Of course, I’m a salty cheap bastard who wastes money on marijuana stock. Clearly you drive a large white SUV.

catyvo22, I want to open up a restaurant to serve you. Long time ago I had a client whom I said the same. He gets a coffee for $2.00 and pays a tip of $10.00 to make it total $12.00 and that was almost every single bill of coffee purchase, not counting so many other restaurant bills.
