Often go to Burger Shack for take-out burgers. The homemade burgers are simple but very tasty, the price is reasonable, the service is fast and there is parking available. Definitely recommend the place for a good burger at Yonge-Eglinton!

The homemade banquet burger is amazing here. Always has such fresh toppings and very friendly staff. The fries are also a perfect ratio or crunch to potato. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great burger or a quick bite.
