Hey everyone, I am looking for an awesome homemade greasy great burger place in Edmonton.
I love Fargos (as they are homemade), i also like red robins. I have been to deluxe burger bar (too fancy and not worth the money).

Any suggestions on a place?

  1. Have you been to The Hat on Jasper?? They make a wicked burger and shoestring fries. Burgers are their main thing, and they have a pretty solid selection.

    I also like Original Joe's for a good greasy burger.

    1. Have you tried Garage Burger downtown next to Metro Billiards? They have awesome burgers and fries, plus it's cheap.

      1. Sounds like you need to hit up the Motoraunt (12410 - 66 Street) while they are still operating.

          Can't agree with Motoraunt suggestin..we had high hopes when when we finally made it there last year. Poor service, bland burgers. It is hard to judge a place after ne visit I suppose, but there are a few excellent burger palces listed in this thread which make a secnd chance unlikley. We love Garage burgers and Delux as well. I continue to have a soft spot for Red Robin's Bleu Ribbon burger too.

        2. I can't stop praising the burgers at Hudson's. The are slightly inconsistent in their cooking - some chefs leave them a little juicier than others, but that is my only complain with their homemade patties.

          The Hat is pretty good, especially if you like a variety of toppings, but they don't really touch Hudson's in my opinion. Their fries are definitely better though.

          I don't know if the patties are homemade, but I enjoyed a very greasy burger at On The Rocks. It came with mushrooms standard, and the taste of them reminded me of using a cast iron skillet for several different items in a row without washing it. It remembered the onions and whatever else had been fried there before.

            Good call - the burgers at Hudson's are very good too.

              Tasty Tom's on Whyte has been talked about a lot on this board. I really liked them when I went there. There are rumours that they are under new (and not so improved) staff.

              also Suede lounge makes a really great burger. My favorite until we tried the hat, but theirs are stupidly big. They need to come up with a ladies size burger, 8oz is ridiculous for me. I could not even wrap my mouth around it, plus the burger is made way too thick, the bun is 2x the size of it.

                you should definitely try the mini burgers at Hudson's, cleopatra. I haven't tried the Hat's slider mini burgers, but I hope they're as good as Hudson's.

                I find them a bit drier than their larger counterparts due to their smaller patty size, but they definitely fill my burger craving when I don't want the whole shebang. They come with all the same delicious fresh toppings of their bigger brothers, as well.

                  The Hat has good burgers. Can't say the same for their dismal service though...

                2. re: cleopatra999

                  it has been at least a year since i've been but the roasted red pepper and brie (which comes as a huge slab) burger at tasty tom's is fantastic. not sure if it still is - new ownership and all.

            2. Delux Burger Bar is pretty good - they have an appetizer called "Delux Sliders" which are bite-sized Kobe beef burgers. Pretty darn good! Located at 9682 - 142 Street in Edmonton.
