Interesting, Big Smoke is losing a few A-list mall spots. They're gone from The Eaton Centre. That surprised me, I thought they did good traffic and had a decent product
They were very much overpriced like alot of artisan burger places.
I went there a few times but honestly it wasn't anything to write home about. Burgers Priest is better.
