That’s right. After a disappointing false start, Cheeburger Cheeburger Montreal is OPEN for business and WWFC was there to review!
I was the first to arrive at the restaurant and, while I missed meeting head chef Jeff Jablow (who was kind enough to visit our blog and let us know the restaurant’s official opening date) by a few minutes, I did have the great pleasure of meeting the owner of Cheeburger Cheeburger Montreal, David Wright. Yup, I finally met Mr. Wright. He was friendly and helpful, telling me all about the concept of Cheeburger Cheeburger and their dedication to serving quality, organic, local food. We also talked a little bit about the future of the franchise in Canada, and I was excited to discover the suburb of Montreal where I live is being considered as a possible location for another Cheeburger Cheeburger restaurant.
Mike arrived, we opted to sit outside while we waited for our blogger friend Shawn to join us and I ordered a small milk shake to tide me over. Cheeburger Cheeburger has a bazillion different flavours of milk shake to choose from and you can even mix up different flavours. I chose chocolate and almond.
Shawn finally showed up and we ordered our cheeseburgers along with a “best of both” basket for us all to share. A “best of both” basket contains both french fries and onion rings.
We give Cheeburger Cheeburger 6 collective thumbs up. And I am personally sending a plea to Mr. Wright: For the love of cheese, please choose the North Shore for the next location!!

UPDATE: Because of all the negative comments we got about the restaurant, we decided to go back and try again. This time, we didn’t meet with the owner and we didn’t tell ANYONE we were bloggers. To see if it was still good for us the second time around, read our Cheeburger Montreal Review – Take Two!
