The Works Vs The Putici Bros.

Two years ago when my brother started moving his work into Eastern Canada I heard about the myriad of unique and delicious restaurants in Ottawa and Toronto. One restaurant that never left the back of my mind was called The Works. Imagine a burger restaurant where you can get nearly anything a top your burger from pineapple, Kraft Mac N Cheese, sauerkraut, and what screamed out to me—Peanut Butter. This Ottawa born burger chain has been around 8 years and now has 6 locations around the city. Other than the 67 toppings to adorn their seven varieties of burger patties from beef, to chicken, to elk, The Works also features massive towers of onion rings and dozens of amazing milkshakes such as ‘Ryan’s Ashbury Shake’--a mix of caramel, Oreo, and peanut butter.

Due to the heavy and over indulgent menu I have been waiting weeks for a day where I could afford to lay comatose on the couch for the afternoon and recover from the caloric attack on my body. So when the day arrived it was GAME ON!


Round 1: Fajita Poutine
[Fries topped with jack & cheddar cheese, 'oodles of gravy', sauteed onions & green peppers, salsa, & fajita chicken.]

Round 2: San Francisco Treat w Sweet Potato Fries
[1 Lbs Beef Patty, real kraft dinner, cheddar cheese, and bacon]

Round 3: Sk8r Boy w Sweet Potato Fries
[1 lbs beef patty, peanut butter, jack cheese, and strip bacon]
(NOTICE: That glorious dollop of gooey peanut butter)

Round 4: Mocha Oreo Milkshake

In the end we could not finish everything. Therefore the victory goes to the works for overtaking our appetites, but also for having amazing food, and the most creative burgers I have had from any gourmet burger restaurant.
