Burgers ‘n’ Fries offers some pretty out-there burger combos, all of which are to die for in terms of flavour and presentation. They handcut the fries, double fry them, and come up with a ton of crazy combinations. P.S. go online to memorise their secret menu, which includes The NSFH (Not Safe For Health): four beef patties, cheddar x2, swiss, mozzarella, bacon, and BFF sauce.
They grind their meat fresh in house every single day and put a lot of emphasis on sourcing the freshest ingredients. It shows in the end product, which is an absolute juicy delight.
Also, add in the quality craft beers, fine wines and specialty cocktails and you have a place to linger for a couple of drinks after your burger. Pure quality on every level.
There’s a brilliantly casual feel to the place, with wonderful comfort food and sweet treats. Behind the scenes though, they make everything from scratch.
For the burger, this means homemade baps, freshly ground beef and even their own ketchup. And yes, you really can taste the quality.

The Works is a small Canadian chain which you will no doubt become quickly addicted to after just one visit.
They do great poutine, salads, onion rings and shakes but you come here for one reason only: the burger. They only use pure Canadian beef and their buns are perfectly squishy and fresh. Go wild and get some poutine on the side for a full carb-fest.
This is easily one of the most chilled out and fun places to come for a burger in the city. If you can snag a seat on the terrace in the warmer months with you’ll be in heaven. Burgers double up on patties and the fries are super crispy.
