“first restaurant in PEI”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Was there for the first night in PEI and this was very close to our place of stay. The food quality was very good and the lobster roll was great. I only wished that the roll was much larger. Please note that the style of the restaurant is very similar to Five Guys burger (in Toronto).

“Best burgers on PEI”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Fresh food, friendly service and delicious burgers. I absolutely love Boom Burger. Although you have to wait a good 15-20 minutes for your order (and that's on a slow night) it's well worth the wait. They provide you with tons of fries that you'll never be able to finish and the best burgers on PEI. It's a little pricey but you get what you pay for.

“GREAT BURGER!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We had seen this place on our first day and a waitress at another restaurant had said it was her favorite place to go. So, we decided to go there on our last day. First of all, I didn't expect it to be as casual as it was (we did look nice when we went, took time to shower and get rid of the beach sand!).
That's where the disappointment ended! It was one of the best tasting burgers! You order a single boom or a double boom(patty) and you then order cheese and/or bacon. The Cheese is local from Cows Creamery and it is so good! Next you choose your toppings from sauces to various vegetables, there's loads of selection, I loved loved loved the fries. PEI potatoes are the best and are even better when you are actually in PEI!
My only complaint is that the buns are just not man enough to hold all of that deliciousness! Change the buns!

“Locally owned”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This is a place where you can customize your burger with fresh condiments. This place is patterned after "Five Guys" in the US. Since it is located in the same shopping center as the Cows Creamery it is the perfect place to have a meal then pick-up dessert at Cows.

“Soo disappointed”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I have been a long time summer resident of PEI . Was introduced to BoomBurger when it first opened and enjoyed the burgers and great home cut fries. Just went in last week for a small order of fries and a water. Felt so taken after paying $6 . It was the smallest order of about 15 fries in a small cup !! On top of that not well cooked. My feeling is that you shouldn't scrimp on your fry orders in PEI of all places . Sooo disappointed they have taken this route. Won't be back!
