This is a dimly-lit hang-out situated in the midst of the area served by the Universite de Montreal. My suggestion is that you need to get there early if you’re going to get a seat. The closer you get to noon, the less space there is. The service was fine, though I felt that one server for an entire floor was lacking.

Ballymore Burger

This burger contains onions, lettuce, tomatoes, mushrooms, Swiss cheese, and bacon.

Upon first glance, the burger looks fine. The combination of ingredients is hopeful, but they soon get lost in the shuffle. I had a hard time getting a sense of what I’m eating. None of the strong ingredients stood out. Not the bacon, the Swiss cheese, or the mushrooms. The meat itself was rather large, but unfortunately, it was a little overdone. I’m kinda feeling bad because I was suggested this place and I had high expectations. The burger is fine, but I needed something to stand out. The fries that were included are somewhat spicy and the mayo worked well in combination.
