Best burger in Toronto

Not just the burgers, you cannot go wrong with this awesome, unassuming little bar in the Bloor West Village of Toronto's west end. It is one of our favs because the staff are incredible and the food is amazing. Daily specials, home made soup (daily) with vegan options. If you are in the mood for a... read more

Located in the middle of pretty Bloor West Village, this sports bar is not to be missed! Owned and operated by 2 brothers; Rob Lundy manages the bar while Chris Lundy conjures up some of the best pub food you will find anywhere. Chris is a trained chef and his skill is evident in the innovative twists that he uses... More

Prior to holding a large party here (30+) Two of us came for a "test flight". which was a great success. But 15X that number could be a challenge. Our party left me looking for an excuse to hold more parties here! The platters of wings, fries, spring rolls, were delicious and ample. They were spaced reasonably apart through the... More

Shakey's is more than your average sports bar - it is a place to gather to cheer on the leafs over a fantastic meal. The chef/owner, Chris Lundy, has definitely upgraded the average "pub" menu with a commitment to fresh and local ingredients. If you have resigned yourself to soggy, greasy fries and frozen apps, Shakey's will give you hope... More

I was looking for a venue for a party of about 30 people, so I came in to scout Shakey's. It was half-full, small tables and all seats full at the bar. The service at my table was quick & friendly with ready explanations about the drinks, snack & dinner menus. Shakey's was originally owned by NHL star hockey player... More

We had a delicious lunch recently on a gorgeous sunny day. We both heartily recommend the club sandwich, which is served on a soft roll. What an improvement over those tall triangular toothpick-skewered bits from my childhood! Bloor Street is for strolling and shopping. And lunch!

Last night I had Chris's Maple Ribs! They were just wonderful. I don't think you could get better ribs in all of Toronto.

best hamburger around...they use organic beef from rowe farms and cook it the way you want...soups are made on site and great care is taken in their process....you must also try the wings and sweet potato fries....

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
