Acme Burger Company, Etobicoke, ON

I had a meeting this morning in Mississauga.

Heading back to Toronto, I stopped at Acme Burger in Etobicoke (Queensway/Royal York) for lunch. I'd heard they had a good burger so thought I'd check it out.

I ordered the 6 ounce burger combo ... burger, fries and pop. $9 including tax.

There were two people ahead of me and we had to wait about ten minutes after an unfriendly fella took our orders. He poured our pops right away. I hate that because they get warm and/or the ice melts.

There are lots of condiments to choose from ... the fella dressing the burgers was friendly.

The fries were really good ... they are hand cut and apparently not frozen. They were hot. The burger was so-so. The meat was warm, not hot ... no doubt the hold-up was getting the fries cooked so the burger had to sit and wait. They toast the bun. I had a whole wheat bun which was lightly toasted. I could have also had a white bun but it was way overtoasted.

I'm glad I stopped in and tried this restaurant ... I won't be rushing back, though, as it was just an okay, not great, experience.

sorry to hear about a sub-par burger experience. I also hate the drink sitting there getting warm. Don't see a clear cup very often.

I love the use of "fella"

LeeAnn: My pal, Monica, lives near Apache so I'll have to check it out sometime.

LOTW: it's wasn't a bad experience, just not as good as I was expecting.
