Head east for mouth-watering burgers in Leslieville

The Roy Public House

894 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M 1J3

Stop right here for a half-pound burger made of Ontario grass-fed beef – and don’t be afraid if it’s still a little pink in the middle. Enjoy the freshness straight-up or with toppings like pea meal bacon, caramelized onions, goat cheese and Portobello mushrooms. The bar serves craft, import and fine domestic beers in a warm, relaxing atmosphere of wood panelling and subdued lighting.

Burger Shoppe

688 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M 1G9

A burger joint for made-to-order burgers, they offer takeout and online ordering for any of their 13 listed burgers or you can walk in and build your own. The BQM (Burgershoppe Quality Meats) beef is family-farmed in Ontario and free of added growth hormones or antibiotics. Have your choice of patty custom-cooked and piled high with selections from the 20 toppings and five cheeses on the menu. The combinations are almost endless.

Hey Meatball

912 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M 1J5

What is a hamburger if not simply a large, flattened meatball? That’s exactly what the owners of Hey Meatball thought when they started their restaurant. Choose from four different types of balls (three meat, one vegan), multiple varieties of cheese, sauce and toppings and go crazy. Their burgers should be experienced before you try this at home, if only to discover first-hand how the bolo sauce interacts with the pork balls.
