The Bite Burger House is not your average burger joint

Normally, I would say the headline says it all, but in truth at the newly opened Bite Burger House, located in the Fallingbrook Shopping Centre, the burgers can speak for themselves. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to find a better burger anywhere else. As their motto suggests – they really do take burgers to a whole new level.

Each burger starts with eight ounces of 100 per cent gluten-free ground chuck and are served on a fresh brioche bun, which can also be ordered gluten free for an additional dollar.

Different versions include the Nana’s Fav, which is served with smoked bacon, jalapeño cream cheese and swiss and cheddar cheese; the FunGuy, which is served with smoked portabello mushrooms, goat cheese and truffle; and the Mac Daddy, which is served with Panko mac and cheese, double smoked bacon and cheddar whiz.

One of their most popular burgers actually has no meat at all. The Gard(e)ner vegan burger starts with a patty made from black bean and beet and topped with Bermuda onion, Bib lettuce, aioli, tomato and lettuce.

If burgers aren’t your thing, Bite Burger House also has some of the best nachos you will find anywhere, including Pork Nachos that are topped with espresso BBQ pulled pork, pineapple salsa and cheddar whiz; and the Chicken Nachos that are topped with morsels of grilled Buffalo chicken, cheddar whiz, the house pico de gallo salsa and fresh lettuce.

The menu also includes several vari-eties of poutine; the house chili; a Cobb Salad; and something called Lamb Cigars which are made from ground New Zealand lamb wrapped in and deep-fried in wonton and served with cooling yogurt dip.

Everything at Bite Burger House is made with the freshest, locally sourced ingredients and served in a classic environment with a unique and ever-changing selection of craft beers, fine wines and specialty cocktails.

For those who like to have a little wine with their meal, Bite Burger has BYOW every Sunday night with no corkage fee!

The delicious food aside, Bite Burger House is truly a cut above the rest. You simply need to pass through their doors and take in the incredible aroma of smoked pork and grilled burgers to ignite your appetite.

The bar and dining area are impeccable and remind one of an upscale gastro-pub in Toronto or New York City.

The brains behind the Bite Burger House experience are owners Bettina Klims and Glen Klepsch. Born and raised in Ottawa, the couple has been in the restaurant business for years.

They opened their first restaurant, the Must Wine Bar, in the Byward Market in 2008. Six years later, they opened the first Bite Burger House on Murray Street. You can find their website at
