We were walking in Kensington Market looking for a place where we could eat and sit down (there were several places but none of them were too comfortable), we pick this one because it has both and also it has vegetarian and vegan options for me. The prices are very good, probably I would try to improve the attention (or... More

The place is located in cool Kensington Market. The service was friendly. The burger was good but not the best I ever had. Did not care for the French fries.

Excellent burgers, unique toppings. They have fresh cut fries, poutine, Milkshakes and Deep fried Mars bar. Burgers are fresh, light and hit the spot. Service is quick and friendly. Their sauce on the side is excellent. Beware...Place is easy to miss cuz the signage is not very clear ... Just a Burger as sign.

We went here with our kids on a nice sunny Kensington Day. These folks make a solid burger. I had one with two 8oz patties, fried egg, cooked onions and mushrooms, and cheese. It was great ... and a very filling meal. At times I had a hard time biting the beast ... and I don't have a small mouth.... More

Great fresh burgers and homemade fries. Setting is basic but it's the food that counts. Would recommend if in Kensington Market area.

Burgers start at $5 and are very fresh. The taste is very simple, but satisfying and not greasy. Everything is made to order. Good service and repeat visit is in order. Decor is simple, but adequate.

We were looking for a different place to eat on Kensington and we discovered this nice restaurant where they have vegetarian and non vegetarian burgers. For less than 7 dollars I ate a great veggie burger (vegan) and for 10 I added fries. Very nice and cozy place.

this place is amazing. you've got to eat here to believe it. amazing burgers and all natural stuff - not your regular fastfood crap- this beef is one of the best you' find in north america. try their chicken and beef mix burger or beef only. if you are here - do not go for chicken. you'll love it

Great burgers. Friendly staff. The place was hard to find but well worth the hunt. The location was a little too dark for me but the food made up for that.

I went to this restaurant to have a hamburger for lunch. I asked the spicy burger and spicy French fries. It was not a good idea, because both of them really had lot of pepper sauce. But besides that, the burger was great, the restaurant is a nice place, the service is fast and the staff is friendly. I liked... More

There is a code - a standard of such, to the way a burger is made. Each burger is hand-crafted, never frozen, and shared with passion. The Burgernator uses a custom blend of freshly ground chuck beef that never sees the inside of a freezer. All produce is sourced locally. Even our sauces & aiolis are prepared in house! The fries? Hand cut & seasoned every morning.

The Burgernator does not cut corners. The Burgernator does not mess around.

The Burger is our weapon. The city is our battlefield. It's time to rid this city of half-hearted burgers, processed cheese, and questionable toppings.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
