MAGOO'S - 1 Tasty Burger!

My husband is a huge carnivore and of course if always seeking great burgers, steaks, ribs etc. A friend of ours told us to check our Magoo's, in Etobicoke. We made the trek, took us about 30 minutes from Toronto, and it was well worth the drive. The burgers were excellent, moist, tasty and the bun was a perfect fit, light and delicious. The condiment selection was fresh and they had about 3 different types of mustards to choose from, they even had bruscetta to add to your burger. The staff was very warm and friendly, and the place has been around for 19 years but it looks really nice, clean and welcoming. They also have frozen yogurt/ ice cream im not sure which one, we were too stuffed for dessert.
We got the homemade fries, poutine, onion rings and everything was terrific. There is a Bruno's in the same plaza as Magoo's and from what I understand that is where they get their fresh beef from everyday.
I would have to say Magoo's is exactly what you would hope/expect Lick's would be like but always falls short. So, anyone looking for an excellent homemade burger, I strongly recommend making the trip to Etobicoke.

  1. I also like Magoo burgers. We live in the area and we used to frequent there often. The last couple of times we went my burger was too dry for me. I love the spicy fries.

    1. I don't find it very good... It's like a licks

      Their burgers are overcooked, completely grey throughout, which it shouldn't need to be if their burgers are really ground fresh every day.. their house sauce is watery... their rings are frozen mccain variety.. and they call themselves a gourmet ice cream place but every single ice cream they carry is just supermarket Nestle brand... I haven't been back in a while

        They will cook your burgers to your liking, you just have to remember to ask when they take your order.
