“The Comrade – their Prime Rib Burger is off the charts! Made special by them for their butcher the beef is outstanding and so is their “Special Sauce”. Pairs perfectly with a pint of Ontario craft beer of which they have a selection by the can or on tap.”

Tuck Shop Kitchen

1640 Dupont St. #3, Toronto, ON

“One of the most recent burgers I’ve tried was the Tuck Royal Burger at the Tuck Shop Kitchen. Located just off the main street, the place had a few small outdoor tables and a window from where you order and pick up your food and drinks. It’s a cool little spot if you’re even on the west end of Toronto. And if you’re wanting to sit somewhere other than the table, check out one of the many neighbourhood parks at walking distance from the place like Carlton Park or Perth Square Park!”

“I’m a smash burger fan, and a good smash burger needs a good sauce. Aunty Lucy’s opened in the middle of the pandemic and knocked it out of the park with their crispy smash burger patties and sauce – so much so that they ended up selling out most days. What started as a pop-up is now a fixture of the Annex. Order yours with a side of Kelewele (Fried Plantain) and Shito (Ghanian Hot Sauce) for the premium Ghanian-American burger experience.”

“Chef Chris Locke at Marben makes a really good burger. It travels really well. During the last year, you could also get it as a burger kit to make your own at home. I think it tastes best on their pretty patio though! On the menu, it’s called John’s Burger. It’s got dry-aged beef, aged cheddar, Branston pickle – a favorite of anyone who’s spent time in England – and braised brisket. All that goodness is piled into a house-baked beef fat brioche bun. What’s not to like?”

Happy Burger

76 Lippincott St, Toronto, ON

“I love a good smash burger and Toronto offers up a lot of options for those who like this style. I recently discovered Happy Burger and it really hit the spot. You can add smoked meat to any of their burgers, which was a fun touch. Plus, they have waffle fries!”

Harry’s Charbroiled

293 Palmerston Ave, Toronto, ON

“I’ve eaten a lot of burgers in this big, beautiful city – it’s hard to pick a best one! When the mood strikes for something a little different though, nothing hits the spot quite like the green chorizo burger from Harry’s Charbroiled. My husband always gets the classic and it also does not disappoint!”
