Are they open yet?

I have had their burgers several times in the US and in Calgary and I think they are great.

Don't believe they are open yet ( I drive by there daily)

The Papa John's pizza has opened in the same strip mall. I'll check for 5 guys on the way home tonite.

I go by there almost every day, and 5 Guys definitely not open. It's the unit with the least amount of action--doesn't look anywhere near ready. Other than Papa John's, there's also another all-you-can-eat sushi place opening in the same strip mall. I think only Papa John's and Miller's Meats are actually open, though.

fwiw, I remember reading somewhere that it would open early 2012, which means it probably won't open till summer. It finally showed up on their location locator, though, so that's a good sign.

Rykos, if you're out on Regent, try The Burger Factory at Regent/Nairn & Lagimodiere.

They are next to BJ Toys (kind of hidden in the corner)

The Factory Special is an excellent choice (HUGE burger)...comes with fries & drink for about $9

Their other food is great, and it's all run by a small Greek family.

I went to the other Burger Factory that was on Portage (it's something else now) and didn't like it, but this one is excellent.

Thanks for the recommendation! I only go that way a couple of times a year (if that), but I'll try to remember it for next time!

My only complaint about The Burger Factory is that the Buns are too big for the burger. I got take out from there, and brought it home, and reassembled the burger on a Costco hamburger bun. Much better.

I find that the buns they use also disintegrate, especially when they toast them. Other than that, good tasty burger (pre-formed) patty bacon, cheese, and all the toppings one could ask for.

I know the one that was on Portage really sucked...

I've never been disappointed in the one on Nairn/Regent

A cooked blob of ground up vegetables and other plant based fillers does not a burger make.

Probably from a vegetarian...and what do THEY know about a good burger?

To me, it's quite hypocritical that they would call it a "burger" joint anyway...

and yes, i know...we've had the whole thread about that already.

Never hear of Boon either. If vegetarian that would explain it. There ought to be a law against calling anything but a hamburger a burger...

The reviews came from meat eaters NOT vegetarians. Open your mind and try something healthy. LOL
