- I came across The Burger’s Priest purely by accident one day when I was biking in the Beaches neighbourhood. It’s an easy little place to overlook; it’s just a small shop with little advertising way out on Queen East. But boy am I ever glad I stumbled onto this place. Hands down this was one of the best burgers I’ve had in Toronto.
First off, it was actually cooked a little over medium– without me asking! Truly a rarity nowadays, the guy at the counter told me they always cook it that temperature. Beautiful. Besides being cooked perfectly, the burger was served on a soft and slightly sweet bun that was matched perfectly with the savoury patty.
The fries are cut super skinny and fried crispy in-house. While that makes them perfect for eating right away, I do imagine that takeouters will find them soggy once they get to eat them. But for me, it was pure fry bliss.
The space is modern, clean, and stainless-steel heavy, but because of its size, it only has seating for about 4 people. Once the place gets a lineup, which at peak times is completely inevitable, the seating area gets really cramped and is unpleasant to eat in.
Next time you happen out to the Beaches, definitely check this place out, or even if you’re not in the neighbourhood, this place is totally worth the drive.
