The Best Cheeseburgers in Toronto
The best cheeseburgers in Toronto aren't typically of the fast food variety, though they'll still satisfy cravings for that basic trio of beef, cheese, and a bun. Gooey cheese melted over a patty is essential, but the precise kind of cheese hardly matters, so long as it's present to add that extra layer of deliciousness atop your burger.
Here are the best cheeseburgers in Toronto.
This Harbord staple is home to an impressive cheeseburger ($19) composed of premium dry aged beef on a puffy egg bun. House smoked maple and Jack bacon can be added on for $2 more, but it's hardly necessary when the default toppings include sharp cheddar, caramelized onions, lemon aioli, and Guinness mustard. Each order comes with fries and slaw on the side.
The wood-fired burgers at this Lake Shore Boulevard West burger joint are gentle imparted with smoky flavours. You can have your beef patty here stuffed with cheddar ($7.65) and toppings applied to order or opt for a signature menu item like the Four Cheese Burger ($8.85) stuffed with cheese and overloaded with parmesan, feta, cheddar and roast garlic mayo.
There are several cheeseburgers on the menu at this joint on Roncy, but the The Sting ($9.75) might be the most noteworthy. This burger comes blanketed in spicy jack cheese, and loaded with crispy jalapenos, chili aioli, slaw and sriracha. Also worthwhile is the Americana ($9), which comes topped with American cheese, dressed with Thousand Island dressing, shredded lettuce, and diced onions.
Go Beast Style ($14) at this smokehouse on St. Clair to enjoy two mustard seared patties covered with American style cheese and served with caramelized onions, lettuce, pickles, and secret sauce. Find a limited number of Dirty Thirty burgers ($11) available each day also. This burger gets stuffed with smoked cheddar and blue cheese then topped with onion frites, pickles, and house mayo.
Menu fixture the Uncle Buck ($15) is a flat top-seared patty loaded with beer battered onion rings, bacon, white cheddar, lettuce, pickles, thousand island dressing and chipotle BBQ. The pub on The Danforth also introduces creative specials every Monday, so be sure to inquire about the kitchen’s latest creations.
