I was able to eat at Olympus Burger, which is located in Port Hope, ON.
It is a small drive east bound on the 401- but trust me it is well worth the drive! The owner, George, has a personality that is out of this world! He is so positive, and let me tell you- this guy is EXCITED that he can accommodate Celiac’s! I was able to have a great discussion with him about how he made his establishment safe for Celiac’s, and he really did his research properly. This is something I truly wish that a lot of business owners would take the time to do. The more knowledge you have on how easy Cross Contamination occurs, the more aware you are of how simple it is to be able to stop it.
Olympus Burger has also been featured on “You Gotta Eat Here” which is a fantastic show that I’m sure all foodies are aware of! That’s a pretty exciting and cool fact about Olympus Burger; also it is a huge accomplishment!
So besides a separate fryer, they have all proper techniques to avoid Cross Contamination. I ordered the Olympus Fries, which are French Fries, topped with Feta Cheese and some Olive Oil. The combination is amazing. It’s like a Poutine, only done in a very different and unique way! OH, also they are just super addicting! The way the Feta melts, its just heaven in your mouth. The fries are so crispy and thick cut which I do love.
We had the two most popular Beef burgers (NOTE- They also have Lamb Burgers, Salmon, Chicken, etc. All your meats are covered!)
Zeus – Fresh beef patty, peameal bacon, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, aged white cheddar cheese, Olympus bbq sauce, lettuce, tomato ; This burger was perfect for the early morning meal that I had The Peameal, and everything was just amazing. The burgers are a thinner patty, but the toppings definitely complete the burger and allow for you to taste each portion that makes up the ZEUS Burger!
Apollo – Fresh beef patty, fried egg, peameal bacon, between two grilled aged white cheddar cheese sandwiches, lettuce, tomato;; This burger had the EGG!! This one was hands down my favourite. The flavours jived together so well, plus with the Grilled Cheese bun- it really doesn’t get much better. I probably could have eaten just the grilled cheese portion but it really went together perfectly.
I have to really thank George. He is passionate and it really comes through in his menu! He has made it a mission to be able to feed everyone no matter what their dietary restrictions, which is great. His personality is vivacious and it makes you more excited to eat there, knowing how passionate and excited he is. The customer service is spot on, and absolutely worth the drive! I look forward to dining here again, and trying the entire menu!
Side note- I did make a suggestion to George to consider making the Gravy GF- as many of us LOVE gravy, and it can be a simple ingredient switch.
