The burgers are good if you love condiments BUT the service is awful. There's ALWAYS a mix up and/or delay at the Yellow Griffin - either they bring you the wrong burger or side dish or you wait an hour and a half (or more!) for your food. The staff don't seem to care or notice. I'm not sure if it's arrogance or incompetence.

I have been going there for years and it happens every single time! It was entertaining for awhile, but now we are all getting fed up. The servers don't apologize whenever the order is wrong. I noticed the waitress doesn't write it down...

The burgers are delicious, but GO AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

I agree about the service, but don't necessarily agree that they make a "damn good burger". They made a decent, sometimes good burger, but I don't think it surpasses that level. The great thing is the choices, but even that can get tedious after a few visits. I prefer the burgers at the Grillway, on the corner of Runnymede and Bloor. Total diner, not really the place you love sitting and eating at, but it is a damn good burger.

As for the timing of the menu on weekends, it's a huge pain. wanting a burger around 12:30 or 1. And the worst thing was, they said they couldn't accomodate us for EITHER menu....apparently they had already started putting away the brunch ingredients??? We hightailed it out of there and haven't been back since.

Not cheap but good. Yellow Griffin for a burger. On Bloor, just east of Runnymede on the north side. Love the creme caramel with the beef patty. Yum!

Yello Griffin is awesome. First time at the Yello Griffin it took me long time to choose what kind of burger to choose.They have 35 burgers and different kind of patty and side orders.
I try to go there now as often as I can.

I will say , in regards to the yellow griffin, DAMN GOOD BURGER. BUT!! let me warn you.. absolutely terrible service. I was there and there were two ladies serving, it took about 20 min to get our drinks... an hour to get our appetiser (chicken wings-like how long does it take to fry them up??), and our burgers came out after a good 1 45 min of waiting. NO JOKES!! and then our order came out wrong.. so she fixed it. But by the end of our meal , I stood up and chased the waitress for our bill, which she ran ( i mean RAN) past our table and threw it on the table . I was happy we got there at a pretty early hour (5:30!!), by the time we were finishing up, the place was packed and guys were asking me to serve their beer.
