Holy cow was this place amazeballs. The burgers did not only live up to its hype but surprisingly more.
I’ve been meaning to come here since forever ago and so on a sunny morning one day, I woke up and decided that I needed to cross this off my summer bucket-list. I ventured into the hipster Queen St. W and headed straight to Burger’s Priest with my famished stomach.
I whipped out my handy cell phone and googled their not-so-secret menu which consists of several spin-offs of their regular menu. I got ‘The Priest’ which consists of the Cheeseburger and the Option while my bf got ‘High Priest’ which consists of “two Beef patties, secret sauce, cheese, pickles, chopped lettuce and diced onions on a non-sesame seed bun.” We also shared fries.
The Option is their vegetarian option which is essentially a portabello mushroom that is breaded and deep fried stuffed with ooey-gooey fromage. Let me start off by saying that I absolutely despise any types of mushrooms or fungus-like food and anyone that knows know that I hate it with a passion. However The Option had raving reviews online and so I decided to conquer my fears and order one.
It was seriously the best decision ever and I give myself a huge pat on the back for ordering it! The burger came fresh off the grill and when I bit into it, the cheese made a hot explosion in my mouth. The succulent beef patty also added on to the epic-ness. My taste buds were just bursting with flavour. I was in heaven.
The fries were a little bland. Nothing beats Mickey D’s!
Overall Burger’s Priest lived up to its hype and I’m terribly excited for the chain to open more stores in the GTA. Daniel Radcliffe also mentioned that it is his favourite restaurant in Toronto! “In terms of places I like, Burger’s Priest, I just recommended it to somebody. Like, it’s amazing.”
Ambiance: 7/10 (small with few seatings)
