There seems to be a lot of speculation over whether or not the burgers are home made or not, and honestly Im not too sure myself. However, what I can say is that taste-wise, the burgers are very delicious! If you are looking for quality service, Starr Burger is for sure a great place to be. Great for kids and kids-at-heart as well!

The buns can be a little small, and though they may have their... more

I was with my family tonight 6/14/2015 and was disgusted with how the owner handled a situation with the young man on cash. First of all the young man who took our order was so sweet and very professional. Then the owner came out and began "correcting" him in front of the customers and other staff. Very poor and unprofessional. The poor kid was embarrassed. Our family frequents this... more

I love it here. The burgers are very tasty, they also sell Kawartha Dairy ice cream. I like sitting on the patio in the summer and eating poutine. They renovated around a year ago and it looks great. Starr Burger has great employees and makes good food.

As always for my Burger Joint reviews I ordered: "the biggest/most premium Burger on the menu, fries, and a shake (If possible)." I'll list my Cons and then Pros.

Cons:
-The cardinal SIN - IT'S NOT HOMEMADE BURGERS!!! DESPITE ADVERTISING!
-Made me SO mad I'm putting it down twice = IT'S FROZEN PATTIES!
-Small Buns - Everything will just fall off and make a mess
-Felt they were stingy on the... more

Was absolutely starving we passed this place and decided to give it a try. Prices are decent, fries are fresh cut and amazing, burger was fresh and flavorful. I would get take our next time because the place was freezing imnot sure they had heat on, not the most enjoyable eating lunch with a jacket scarf and hat on

I decided to try this place recently and found the food (Starr Cheeseburger and Fries) to be adequate. The staff are not really super friendly, so it's iffy as to whether I'll go back or not, since burger joints are a dime a dozen.

Best homemade burgers around
May 27, 2014

We have been going to Starr Burger from the start of the business approx. 28(?) years ago. Family owned. Dan & Steve (& parents before them) are very personable. Their homemade burgers are the best but we also like the steak on a bun or pea meal on a bun. Good selection of condiments.
