Jumbo Burgers
Jumbo Burgers is an old-school burger joint on Runnymede. You won't find any gourmet toppings or organic ingredients here.

Not sure why this place was not ranked in the top burger joints?? Surely one of the best in town and cheaper then most........

Wow.. Really surprised to see only one comment. Jumbos is the best. Though, Their onion rings are literally heart cloggin', but why go to a burger joint if you are on a health kick haha. Amazing fish and chips, soulvaki dinner and banquets. Love this place A+++++

Looooooove Jumbo. First place we went to when we moved in around the corner. The boys (men...)that run the place made us feel like family right away. Best fries around, milkshakes and cheeseburgers super YUM!!! Why head down to the Danforth when you can have a pretty sweet chicken soulvaki on a pita right here!

I have been going there since 1987, and they are one of the best in the city. At night time, the young guy makes burgers too messy,so be precise about how you want your toppings laid.(Banquet; Must,rels,onion,tomatoe,pickle,lots of bbq sauce)

Best burgers in the city..I have referred so many friends, its the only place I go for a real burger. Been going since 1975.
The guys who work there have been there for many years, and they are great and treat you like family.

I have only recently been introduced to Jumbo Burgers but I fell in love with it immediately! As a fan of Apache Burger near Kipling Station, and Super Burger in Shelburne, I was thrilled to find out that there was a burger joint even closer to home that offers similar deliciousness. I wasn't so thrilled with the milkshakes though, they were too runny, maybe I had one on an off night. The onion rings are amazing, very similiar to Apache and Super Burger

Been going here since I was a child, my dad's been going here since he was a teen as well. Burgers are great, onion rings are delicious, that smooth kind of battering (insanely greasy though) the milkshakes are nice and thick as well, if I remember correctly. Try to avoid this kind of food now for health reasons, but if you don't care about that then hit it up.

Tried Jumbo today after reading this post and sadly, it was terrible. I have no idea what everyone is talking about it. The burger is a small patty on a jumbo bun. I like mayo on my burger but it was a room temp sitting on the counter so I declined. The rings tasted like freezer burn - I ate 3 and threw them out. So disappointing.

Love this place. Nice guys and very good food.

Don't know what Riaboutit is talking about.

I've been going to Jumbos for almost fourty years , I've been going there since the owners opened shop . The food is great , the price is fair , and the service is perfect . Longest living burger joint that I know of there must be a reason.
