Chickenburger to open soon

Downtown to get a new model of classic '50s-style diner

Posted By on Thu, Mar 22, 2012 at 4:00 AM

It's been in the wind for awhile that a new location of The Chickenburger was gonna happen downtown. Looks like that day is almost here, as the recognizable signs are all up at 1466 Queen Street, just beside American Apparel. Owner Colin MacDonald says doors will open in the next few weeks. "We're hoping for early April," he says, though is reluctant to be any more specific than that as construction is still ongoing.

The location was renovated to accommodate the diner, "to make it fit with the motif and bring it up to code," says MacDonald, who was impressed with the building's old chimney. "It's got a lot of charatcer," which suits The Chickenburger's nostalgia-heavy comfort food aesthetic. It'll also have some parking directly out front, a rarity for restaurants in the area.

Expect this summer to be all about the milkshakes, burgers and fries beloved for decades in Bedford, soon available just off Spring Garden Road.

Survey Asks

The worst part of construction season is...

  • The noise
  • The detours
  • The catcalling
  • The displaced rat colonies
