This this again from two other locations. I've come to realize that the experience is highly dependent on the location. Downtown (Commerce Court) is skimpy on their toppings, and missing a few as well. Just doesn't taste so good. Stockyards location on the other hand had a tough time closing the lid to the bowl with all the toppings they loaded up. The gf is vegan and she thoroughly enjoyed hers and would definitely get this at full price. Harvey's does have some of the better veggie burgers out there, so that helps. Usually she gets a veggie patty with the toppings in a poutine container, sans bun w/ fries on the side. So this is pretty much the same thing but a larger portion and more topping options.

Suggestions are:
- They need some pre-suggested mixes. Too many mix-n-match toppings makes it confusing and slows the process down.
- They need better utensils for scooping. A little spoon doesn't work for some of those toppings like the corn & black beans. And the tiny tongs for picking up the Asian noodles looked frustrating.
- The ingredients list posted on the clear glass in white writing... it should be on a black background. Reading the ingredients is tough.
- The sauce can make or ruin this thing. I find on a bed of fries the Big Harv sauce works well. Asian Sesame is horrible unless you're on a bed of lettuce.

In the end, if the price was maybe $1 cheaper (full price), I'd grab this as a filling lunch option with the grilled chicken. At half price I'm good with it as it is, and will still go back and figure out good topping mixes.

I was in a piggish mood this evening so got fries with Buffalo Chicken (good choice). Should've just gotten gravy (extra cost) for the fries instead of misc. toppings that didn't make any sense like pickles, cucumbers and tomatoes lol.

Think I will go back to the salad bowl with crispy chicken tomorrow.

Wow what a terrible idea. Throw random crap into a bowl and charge $7.49. I don't see anyone buying this at regular price.

Ya they are using spoons to fill up this bowl. Pathetic. Skimped big time, but how many times are you going to tell them. Rather just try once and never again. Simple as that.

Ordered 1 from Waterloo Weber location. They needed the coupon
Angus, Fries, Asian sesame dressing, Lettuce/tomato/cucumber

Not bad, I liked it, better than burger
but probably wouldn't pay $7-$8 regular price for it

I had one yesterday (Angus) and I thought it was delicious and a great deal after the 50% off coupon. Honestly though even at regular price it's slightly cheaper than chipotle which makes it more tempting. I live equal distance from a chipotle and a Harvey's so I would probably go to Harvey's over Chipotle to save a bit and to avoid the line ups.

You can't really compare this crap to Chiptole. Chiptole is way way better. At least the flavors make sense.

I guess I have pretty low culinary standards. Aside from the angus burger meat I thought everything was comparable to chipotle. I mean it's the same ingredients just better/real meat at chipotle. Either way I still enjoyed it Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Tried it and I thought it is an excellent deal. The server was more than happy to fulfill to my requests for more and more veggies even asked if I could finish it all

At regular price probably not worth it.

Also had good experience with my first time trying this today at Hooker Harvey's. Got salad base. Buffalo chicken. Loads of jalapeno, guac, salsa, corn+beans, tomato,cucumber. Loved it. Great deal op!
