Etobicoke has an outstanding array of burgers. With nostalgic, old-school eateries and places serving up family recipes from the Balkans, there's a lot to sink your teeth into in this part of town.
Here are my picks for the top burger joints in Etobicoke.
This iconic burger joint near Kipling station is an excellent source for old-school cheeseburgers, golden onion rings and crispy fries. The charbroiled burgers may not be gourmet, but the place is open until at least 2 a.m. and will satisfy your cravings for beef and nostalgia at once.
This popular spot on the Lakeshore grills its burgers over an open flame. Along with offering customizable options and stuffing patties with cheese, Woody's features ten signature burgers with internationally inspired flavours, like the the wasabi mayo-topped Tokyo burger or the tzatziki-dressed Greek burger.
Big Butcher Barbecue
This Etobicoke burger joint grinds its own meat and bakes its own buns. Signature offerings include the Primetime stacked with bacon and smoked cheese, and the Diablo loaded with roasted hot peppers and chipotle mayo.
Hand-crafted lean beef burgers are a source of pride for this longstanding Etobicoke establishment. Have yours on a toasted bun dressed to order with the the garlicky Magoo mayo and a standard selection of toppings. Don't miss out on sidekicks like chili cheese fries and milkshakes either.
Royal Meats BBQ
This Balkan grill house near IKEA is the perfect pit-stop when you need to fuel up before trying to assemble some Kallax shelving. You won't be disappointed with the Royal Burger Deluxe, a grilled pork and veal patty filled with ham and goat cheese served on a freshly baked lepinya bun.
