    Try Hazel's Diner at Yonge and Lawrence. We had lunch there the other day and while we were eating our BLT's and grilled cheeses noticed a burger go by. It looked very good. A friend went back later in the week to try it and said it was very nice. Might be worth a visit.

      and more i'm sure.

      allen's seems to be a board favourite, I thought it was quite good.

        Had a burger at Hazels about 15 minutes ago. It sucked. Dry and very well done. Little flavor, no juice. Asked for it to be medium rare-server replied "We don't cook to colour". Should have changed my order right then. Oh well-very good fries though.

            Now that you've discovered Globe Bistro, you should try out the burger they serve. It's available on the patio menu.
