The Best Cheeseburgers in Toronto

The best cheeseburgers in Toronto have a special place in our hearts when it comes to greasy fast food dining. Nothing exemplifies comfort food like a meat patty topped with melty cheese between two buns. 

Here are the best cheeseburgers in Toronto.

Arguably the ones to kick off Toronto’s obsession with smash burgers is this local mini-chain that’s expanded to five shops since 2015. Their famous Rudy ($7.49) hits every time with perfectly caramelized edges and a simple dressing of lettuce, tomato, and their signature Rudy sauce.

High-quality meat is essential to a stellar cheeseburger, and this Yonge and St. Clair business fulfills the need with their hand-rolled beef patties. Their cheeseburgers range from simple to decadent versions with panko-crusted onion rings.

For the perfectly-packaged park meal, head to this pitstop by Trinity Bellwoods. Chef Matty Matheson’s burger joint has $20 combos of single or double burgers with oozy American cheese and griddle sesame milk buns.

Spice up your cheeseburger intake with a visit to this comfort food fixture on St. Clair West. Their version ($12) comes with a house pimento cheese made with aged cheddar, smoked jalapeños and garlic-infused mayo. Their double Beast Style ($18) is served with secret sauce.

With two locations including one in Liberty Village and another at  Queen and Spadina, Aloette serves their namesake burger ($14) with fried Beaufort cheese, a signature aioli and fries on the side for an extra $4.

Danforth East's craft beer pub for southern food has a list of decadent cheeseburger specials. Options run from flat top-smashed patties with avocado-tomatillo crema to versions with Swiss, mushrooms, and their "grand slam" sauce.

We're thankful this summer pop-up decided to go permanent in the Annex Hotel. That means a guaranteed fix of their single patty Kumasi Burger ($8) or the double-pattied Accra for $11 with American sliced cheese and Lucy’s Sauce.

Liberty Village's destination for smash burgers does gooey takeout with American cheese, grilled onions, and a flavourful signature sauce. The combination of super soft bun and crispy, caramelized meat patty is made even better with the option of bacon.

Extra Burger

There are two outposts of this hamburger shop to get your greasy 2 a.m. combo. There are only three options on the menu, two of which are cheeseburgers. Both the single and doubles come loaded with American cheese, kosher pickle, tomato, and special sauce.
