The Best Burger in Toronto

The best burgers in Toronto epitomize the rewarding feeling of comfort food. We may love our Big Macs, but we know that a burger can be so much more than that, made from a careful blend of beef often formed by hand into patties, with toppings that range from wholesome to downright outrageous.

Here are the best burgers in Toronto.


Burger's Priest

Burger's Priest

Double cheeseburgers topped with deep-fried jalapenos, blue cheese cheeseburgers and grilled cheeses for buns are on the “worst kept secret” menu at this burger chain with locations across the city. A custom blend of beef is ground for the flat-top-griddled patties every day.

Fresh beef is ground in house every day and aged for the perfect burgers at this spot with several locations. All that goes into the patties is high quality meat and salt, but they get toppings like Nutella, sopressata, or pineapple, and even served on croissants.

Simplistic, crushable, smashed-flat burgers with minimal toppings are the deal at this Little Italy joint where there are only three options: cheeseburger, double cheeseburger, and bacon burger, topped with signature Rudy sauce.

Planta Burger

What?! A veggie burger on the best burger list? It’s possible. The blend of beet, black bean, lentil and mushroom gives off a true “rare” burger look, topped with a potato and carrot queso and mushroom bacon that completes the delicious illusion.


Golden Star

Old school greasy spoon burgers are the order of the day at this remote Thornhill hangout. Charbroiled burgers are as simple as can be, though the MVP burger does weigh in at 12 ounces.


Burger Shack

Simple hamburgers, cheeseburgers, bacon burgers and banquet burgers make up the offerings from this Yonge and Eglinton spot that feels lifted straight from the eighties.

The green chili burger at this St. Clair West BBQ joint is, full stop, flavour city. The spiciness of the chili sauce perfectly complements the smoky patties for a meal that will fill up even the emptiest bellies.


Woody's Burgers (Baby Point)

Woody's Burgers (Baby Point)

Seven-ounce burgers made from grass-fed Ontario beef are thick, tall and customizable at this shop with locations in Baby Point and on the Lake Shore. Get them gorgonzola-stuffed or tandoori style.

Mama's Boys Burgers

Mama's Boys Burgers

The old school style of burger at this Scarborough mainstay is perfectly matched by the kitschy interior. Beef is never frozen and ground fresh on the premises daily, cooked on your choice of charcoal or griddle.
