The Burger Shoppe - Review

The Burger Shoppe at Queen & Broadview opened today so of course we had to try it out for dinner, surprised to see how busy they were considering there was no advertising/promotion for the opening. Happy to report that they are serving up fresh and very tasty burgers... glad they aren't trying to be high end/fancy either, the focus is on a great burger made of quality beef cooked perfectly. They also have fresh cut fries, huge onion rings, poutine, etc... I also noticed an organic beef burger (via The Healthy Butcher) on the menu, will likely try that next time. Sadly they don't yet have their milkshakes (featuring Ed's Real Scoop ice cream) but I was told they are coming soon. For people in the area looking for a better burger option than the Double D (aka the flavourless grease bomb) give them a try. They are admittedly a bit pricey but I think the quality/freshness of the ingredients will keep people coming back... plus it isn't a chain/franchise so hopefully it won't suffer the same fate as Hero.

Already looking forward to my next burger... :-)

  1. A few questions:
    1. Do they have a website?
    2. Do you know if they deliver?
    3. Were the onion rings homemade, or prepared from frozen?

    Awesome. I'm really looking forward to having a good burger joint in my neighbourhood. Thanks for the review and recommendation!

    1. Don't think they have a website and they don't deliver... its actually quite small, only about 4 tables and a few stools so I'm guessing it will be mostly takeout. As for the onion rings... to be honest I'm not entirely sure but they were quite good, I would guess frozen based on the consistency of the coating (similar to panko breading) but frozen seems a bit contrary to the vibe of the place. Let us know what you think, I was pretty impressed considering it was their first day.

      Plus the owners (two brothers) were really nice and personable... they live in the area too, nice to see they are keeping it local. Next time I'm in I'll find out where they get their beef and if the patties are made on the premises.

      1. Thanks for the review. What is the price point for a burger?

        I can't wait until they have those milkshakes! I will definitely have to stop by whent that time comes.

        1. So, it isnt tabel service right? Its just like get your burger and sit down, right?

            The burgers start around $5 or so, close to $6 with cheese. No table service either, order your burger at the counter and sit down to wait.

            Hmmm.... burger for lunch today? :-)
