The Option is the only special thing at this place for me. Cheesy fried mushroom cap is a great time. The burgers are good. The fries are usually limp and soggy. The whole menu is a little expensive for what you get. Especially when you have to wait twenty minutes to get it, depending on the lineup.

Great burgers! The soul burger is a must try and the fries are great too. Very claustrophobic though as there is no seating at this location and the line usually extends outside as not many people can fit inside. This is definitely a pick up location and if you're wanting to dine it's better to visit their other locations that... More

When I ate the vegetarian burger, the 'option' and the Pope, it was indescribable, because I'm not vegetarian guy, so I didn't expect to like so much. The stuffed mushrooms are amazing, it's the best word to describe it. I super recommend!

Not too many restaurants are thrilled to see a young kids hockey team walk in the door but there certainly was no disappointment with this staff. They were very accommodating and helpful. Although the restaurant has limited seating we were able to make it work with our group of 18. The burgers and fries were very good. Fresh ingredients, flavourful... More

I absolutely LOVE the Burger's Priest. It's like a church for burger lovers. This is one place I make sure to go to every time I'm in Toronto. My wife isn't even a big burger person & she said it was the best burger she's ever had. The fries are really good too. And make sure you save room for... More

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
