We’ve updated the list for 2020, so if you can’t get to dine out right now, you can still enjoy one of these delicious burgers in Toronto for delivery or takeout! Rudy is a favorite amongst locals and travelers alike but seems to be a super-big hit with visitors who are after something they can’t find back home.
When it comes to the best burgers in Toronto, it’s hard to argue with the fact that The Museum Tavern serves some of the tastiest. This vibrant, bustling tavern is, first and foremost, a great spot to enjoy a local beer or two.
For stacked burgers that are dripping with grilled cheese and finger-lickin’ good beef juices, this is the place to go. The Burgernator is on a quest to rid the city of overcooked burgers, processed cheese and questionable toppings, and oh boy are they doing a great job.
Bonus points for creative names such as Atomic Burger (which comes with a devilishly good deep-fried herb-crusted cheese) and Drop And Give Me Spicy. An absolutely classic local diner, Golden Star has been feeding generations their drool worthy burgers since 1964.
The juicy, homemade burgers are legendary in the Thorn hill area, and it’s a much loved family eatery. Mushroom and lentil patties, BBQ jack fruit and black kale slaw are just some of what’s on offer.
Note that their onion rings contain milk, but they do have root beer lollipops that are vegan for a unique treat! Hero Burger has many restaurants around Canada (mostly southern Ontario) and is known for its environmental stewardship.
The “soul burger” patty is vegan but the regular Hero bun is not. You can top your burger with vegan guacamole, crispy or sautéed onions, and choose from maple chipotle BBQ, pineapple mango, mustard, and zucchini relish for sauces.
While McDonald’s is certainly falling behind the times without any veggie burger in Canada yet, you can still treat yourself to some junk food if you are desperate or find yourself there with non-veg friends or family. Their hash browns and baked apple and strawberry pies are vegan.
The only vegan items here are fries and a plain baked potato. Located in the beautiful city of Thousand Oaks, P & L Burgers has been serving great food since 1984.
