Boardwalk Burgers

Located at 497 Dundas Street West near Neyagawa Boulevard in Oakville, Boardwalk Burgers offers a menu focused on traditional burgers, fries, and shakes.

The restaurant was founded by Dave and Fran DiFerdinando in 1980. It was inspired by the flavours of Maryland’s ocean-side boardwalk. Starting as a take-out spot, the founders aimed to recreate the beachside ambiance and flavours they cherished.

Today, their concept has expanded across the U.S. and Canada, with existing locations in Milton, Mississauga, and Hamilton, with more on the way.

Boardwalk Burgers offers a variety of menu options, including “fresh, never frozen hand-made burgers,” creamy Canadian dairy shakes, sweet potato fries, poutine, veggie burgers, and chicken choices, all served alongside classic sides of fries or onion rings.

Adding a unique twist, their poutine comes in various flavours, such as beef bacon with cheddar ranch, jalapeno cheddar, parmesan garlic, and beef bacon with chipotle.

Shake enthusiasts can enjoy flavours like vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, banana, cookies and cream, and peanut butter.
