Collected by Natalie Taylor, AFAR Local Expert
Hogtown has gone hog-wild over its burgers, with a heated debate over which one is the best. The verdict? They’re all good!
121 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1C4, Canada
The Oxley is your typical British gastropub brought to you by Jameson Kerr (of Queen and Beaver and Crush) and is making the posh Yorkville nabe more approachable. Thus, it caught me off guard that I'd have such a great burger here. Hand chopped,...

Just two blocks northwest of Landsdowne station, this clandestine diner is not central but it is a fantastic local spot. Park yourself on the picnic benches patio-side or in a seat in an atmosphere which is as simple as it gets. Though there's...

The Canadian version of America’s In N Out Burger, The Burger’s Priest pays tribute to the mighty burger and religious references. Believers line up all day, every day (except Sunday) for their most revered burger. The not-so-secret secret menu is...

Hip Parkdale eatery Parts & Labour has always been known for their burger and outspoken chef, Matty Matheson. Just opened in November, 2013 Matheson took the concept of doing one thing well (burgers) a few doors down from Burger Priest's Queen...

Holy Chuck doesn't mince meat about its portion sizes or making a downright greasy and dirty burger. It's not for the faint of heart or a vegetarian. My favourite burger here is the Big Chuck, Holy Chuck's version of McDonald's Big Mac. If you're...

Tucked behind the popular Rose and Sons is the large yet clandestine wooden back patio of Big Crow. The CN Rail Train and lots of chatter provide the background noise for groups of friends gathering around over some incredible baby back ribs....
