Stampede Bison Grill

Just tried this brand-new place on Brock near Queen in Parkdale, in the old Rosie's dirty-bird fried chicken and grease spot. They've renovated it and are serving bison burgers, beef burgers, chicken and veg burgers, plus fries, poutine (with real curds), salads, etc.

I wasn't that hungry so I just had a takeout bison burger ($4.50) with old cheddar (95 cents) and grilled onions (50 cents) on top. The burger was good, cooked medium-rare which I was overjoyed about, I guess they must grind on-site. The meat could have used a little more salt. The bun was a nice brioche-style, with a good bread-to-meat ratio. Having the LCBO right next door was too tempting, so I got a tallboy of Tecate to accompany the burger whilst sitting at my desk. I am having a good day.

We've been waiting for a new work lunch spot around here, and I know my co-worker just bolted out the door to get a poutine when I told him they had curds, so I expect more reports will be forthcoming soon. They don't seem to be licensed for booze but they were saying they did just get their patio license and the furniture is being delivered today. And they're open until 3 am on Fridays and Saturdays, which should be useful for the Ossington and Wrongbar crowd.
