On the short list for the Yummiest burger in Toronto is the finely hand crafted, heaven on a bun, the “Classic Burger” from Craft Burger. Some restaurants just have a certain purpose or a calling and this burger joint was meant to make perfect burgers. The whole essence and atmosphere inside Craft Burger is fusion between gourmet and your local retro burger shop with an emphasis on freshness!
Craft Burger serves up never frozen, fresh Ontario AAA ground chuck which are then hand crafted one at a time and cooked to order. All Craft burgers come with fresh cut lettuce, red onions, tomato, sliced pickles, dijon mustard, ketchup, and mayonnaise but if you’re feeling adventurous you can pick from the “Extras” category with six additional toppings ($1.25 ea) : smoke Canadian cheddar, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, avocado, gorgonzola.
It was a great experience with friendly service and probably one of the best burgers you’ll eve have. I will definitely visit again.
A view from the inside looking out.
Simple menu with about eleven burgers, six extra toppings, four sides, four choices of drinks, and a cookie!
If you don't feel like reading from the paper menu you can see their entire menu on their chalk board above the cash.
On the left is a view from the dining area looking towards the washrooms and on the right you have the ordering area looking out towards the dining area. There is very limited seating with a few bar seats available so don't be too disappointed if you have to wait for a table, you've been warned.
Before I attacked my Classic Craft Burger, fries, and pop ($5.65 + $3.20)...
After the burger attack...
I decided to try the Old Fashioned Vanilla Milkshake ($3.95) for dessert which came in the soda fountain glass and the metal mixing cup in which it was "shook" in.
You get to have everything in the glass and in the mixing cup! After you finish all the milkshake in the glass you have enough for a second round because it's the milkshake that keeps on giving!
