Very good food and fun service!

Lick's has such a fantastic menu.. so not run of the mill. I really like their nature burgers, which are meatless, but you wouldn't even know it. They have great fresh toppings and the guk sauce is a must (but only if your dining partner has it too... garlic!).
I love their old fashioned soda fountain feel too at the ice cream counter. My favourite is to ask for a vanilla coke and they add syrup to it. So good! The burgers are huge and the staff is really fun and energetic.

Always good with friendly staff

When I was growing up we used to meet my grandparents at Licks on Bronte Road. I've always enjoyed the food and the Hamilton restaurant is no exception. I love the Backhomeburger and onion rings.

The only issue I have is with the cleanliness of the restaurant. They have lights that hang over the counter and they are covered in dust. They've been like this for years and it's pretty gross.

Not all the food items are on the menu board. Have to keep an eye out for different items. Burgers are always good and a few extra toppings for fries like the works and chili fries. Portions are on the small side for fries for what you pay for. Everything seems to cost extra too, mayo & cheese. The waitress was good as she rang our order up twice to see which would be cheaper for us.

What's Happened
October 04, 2012

I took my son to dinner tonight and he wanted to have Lick's. We ordered a Homeburger combo and a Jumbo dog combo. They placed the bottle of water and Coke immeditely on the tray and slid it down the counter. They toasted the buns and asked what we wanted on them. Then it got ugly. The cook came to... more

so much food
July 29, 2012

if you like really (and i mean really) thick burgers, then this place is for you. Eating a normal burger there has as much meat as a big mac without the extra bun. for me, it's way too much, but to each their own. It may be too much beef, but it's pretty tasty.

got a name for fresh burgers...then they ruined it
June 16, 2012

Now they sell pre-made, frozen, grocery store burgers slapped on a grill. I guess they wanted to sell their burgers in grocery stores so badly that they made them just like every other frozen pattie. Too bad, they used to be ok.

Filthy and food isn't what it used to be
June 02, 2012

We had a Wagjag coupon. I remember Lick's from time gone by and they USED to be excellent. My partner and I went and I wanted to leave, he said we were hungry, we'd stay. The place was very dirty and generally unkept. Floors filthy, the counter where they put the toppings on the burgers was dirty, etc. The 'Guk'... more

Licks is Licks, the menu is the same everywhere. They offer hamburgers, hotdogs, fries, steak, chili, ice-cream etc. I like how they have vegetarian and low calorie options on their menu. For those vegetarians out there, try their nature burger, it's really good!

I came to this location with a group of friends for ice-cream on a warm day and we walked right over to the ice-cream bar. They had... more

far from the burger of the past
August 13, 2011

I used to live in Toronto/ Hamilton up to 15 years ago and loved Lick's burgers . I have made a point of returning to Lick's at each visit and was very satisfied- until yesterday. Brought my partner and we were both disappointed- me more so as I had been bragging about the experience. Service- order taking ok. No singing... more

Best burger in the world
July 06, 2011

The best burgers I have ever ate! They are steak burgers and they put a MOUND of cheese on them. Onion rings are rocking and the milk shakes come in every flavor you could ever ask for. Everytime im in Ontario I get a licks burger.

I've been to many Lick's across SW Ontario and this has to be one of the best I've been to. The staff is great here and the food is excellent.

The Lick's employees always have a smile and a song for their customers. (Yes I said song). The burgers are great as well! The only thing stopping Lick's from getting 4 stars is the portions.

Home of the great Licks Homeburger. Great food and a friendly atmosphere. There should be more than one Licks for the city. But we can't all get what we ask for.
