The food is great here but don't order it on Eats. takes forever and it's always cold. Do yourself the favour and go there, pick it up and have a black and white shake while you wait. The cheeseburger is worth the trip!

For a new restaurant, The Burger's Priest in not to be missed. The layout takes full advantage of the smaller floor plan. I have visited on 3 occasions and the Burgers only seem to get better. Not large burgers with huge buns, the sizing is perfect and you can actually eat the whole burger. Excellent variety and No room for... More

Love coming here it's always busy but we always get a seat. The food is always right, the service is always fast and friendly and some times there's free samples of shakes.

I loved the selection of burgers. Although the resto is quiet small and sitting may be an issue for larger groups, I recommend if you are travelling solo, in couple or with a few friends.

The Option is the only special thing at this place for me. Cheesy fried mushroom cap is a great time. The burgers are good. The fries are usually limp and soggy. The whole menu is a little expensive for what you get. Especially when you have to wait twenty minutes to get it, depending on the lineup.

Great burgers! The soul burger is a must try and the fries are great too. Very claustrophobic though as there is no seating at this location and the line usually extends outside as not many people can fit inside. This is definitely a pick up location and if you're wanting to dine it's better to visit their other locations that... More

When I ate the vegetarian burger, the 'option' and the Pope, it was indescribable, because I'm not vegetarian guy, so I didn't expect to like so much. The stuffed mushrooms are amazing, it's the best word to describe it. I super recommend!

Not too many restaurants are thrilled to see a young kids hockey team walk in the door but there certainly was no disappointment with this staff. They were very accommodating and helpful. Although the restaurant has limited seating we were able to make it work with our group of 18. The burgers and fries were very good. Fresh ingredients, flavourful... More

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
