Is this the best burger in Leaside?

Posted by Staff / August 8, 2014

best burger leasideLeaside is about to do battle -- burger battle. Starting next Monday, seven pubs and restaurants in the neighbourhood will throw their hat in the ring for the title of "best Leaside burger," the winner of which is selecting by diners who can cast a vote between August 11th and 25th. Participants include Against The Grain Urban Tavern, Grilltime, McSorely's, Originals, Shoeless Joe's, South St. Burger Co., and The Leaside Pub.

The battle lasts two weeks, just so folks actually have a bit of time to get out and try a few burger varieties. I doubt that anyone other than the most enthusiastic beef eaters will try all seven, but one suspects that neighbourhood folks already have their favourites. If this all sounds a bit gimmicky, lighten up -- the competition is held for charity, and a buck a burger will go to the SickKids Foundation in memory of Georgia Grace Walsh. Now you don't need to feel guilty about indulging on a a juicy burger, if ever you did.

Yeah, sometimes the posting style here at blogto.com doesn't allow an immediate "caption" line to the photo or better identification of the image used. But using Chrome's "Search Google for this Image" right-click feature I found out it's from Grilltime (grilltime.ca) and originated in this tweet of theirs - looks amazing:

No, it's a commerial promotion. if you think this is some kind of objective burger competition you are an idiot. furthermore, stop eating meat.

Against the Grain will win hands down. But not sure of some of these entries...

who cares about a burger in Leaside, we have good chicken wings at Duff's and that is about it.

Mcsorleys has the best burger hands down. Great pub too. Not sure why shoeless and south street are even being considered.
