It's really nothing special, but if you have a car full of kids or if you're on your way to or from home and you're feeling peckish, it's a good stop. BOOMburger uses meat, cheese, potatoes, bakery products and everything else it serves all sourced from Prince Edward Island. And it offers employment to a lot of youthful Islanders, all of them pleasant and efficient, so it certainly supports the local economy. And it's kept clean. As mentioned, you really have to drive there. It's close to the North River causeway, and it would be a fairly long hike along a busy highway otherwise. The food is the usual thing you'd expect from a fast-food restaurant with "burger" in the title, but the hamburger is good, it can be dressed up quite a bit, and the french fries are cut right there from the bags of island potatoes stacked near the front door. Nothing fancy, but very reasonable and satisfying, and so; recommended.

We laughed as we entered. There were bags of potatoes along the entry line. The menu was almost exactly the same as Five Guys'...with the exception of added local foods like lobster rolls and poutine. No peanuts, though.

I asked the guy who took our order if they are affiliated with Five Guys but he said they were not. He acknowledged the similarities.

The food was similar to FG, but it was made using local ingredients. Local beef, PEI potatoes, and cheese from a local creamery...but they kind of skimped on the cheese. Another slice would have been perfection. Overall, it was delicious. My favorite part was that they grilled the buns with local butter. It makes the burger.

The place was extremely clean and the staff members were friendly.

Excellent cooked on the spot burger. Hand cut fries. All the toppings you could want. Clean. Great place to go instead of the usual burger joint.

The fresh meat was generously served on a fresh bun with home-cut fries. Delicious. Their regular burger is good enough, but they stepped things up with their Burger Love burger.

The burgers are not cheap fast-food burgers, but reasonably priced given the fact that these are fresh and really good.

Highly recommended!
