Burger Company: Not Your Usual Burger Fanfare
As its menu states, Burger Company was born from a craving.
“The burgers at Boulevard were my favourites,” Francis Fabie says of his co-owner’s creations. “I was never able to find as much satisfaction with other burger places as I did with that one. When the place closed down, I was pretty upset. To be able to taste those great burgers again, I ended up tracking down Alvin and inviting him to try again in a new location with a new set of goals in mind.” This, in brief, is the history of Burger Company.

Aside from their Certified Angus Beef (CAB) patties, they also make use of homemade buns, dips and powdered sauces, ensuring a food experience that one can only get at Burger Company. “What we have is exclusively ours,” Fabie declares proudly. “Chances are, you can’t find our flavours anywhere else.”

These are perfectly crispy crisscut fries coasted in a special homemade cayenne pepper and paprika powdered mix. Delicious! To wash it all down, we had the very interesting Lime-Aide (P80) and the always welcome Home-Brewed Iced Tea (P75).
Lime-Aide and Home-Brewed Iced TeaAs far as burger industries go, Burger Company is a breath of fresh air. There is so much time and effort put into making quality burgers with quality ingredients, but it doesn’t just end there. The owners are a duo of young burger aficionados intent on bringing the best that they can offer to the old patrons of Boulevard and the would-be customers of Burger Company. Burger Company also puts a personal touch on each and every dish that comes out of their kitchen. “We want to build a following,” shares Fabie. “We want people to come to us because they love what we create.”
With concoctions like these, it’s impossible not to fall in love with Burger Company’s vision.
