7. The Grille 1596 The Queensway, Toronto, M8Z 1V1

Located on the outskirts of Toronto, The Grille serves up heaping portions at great prices. One good example is the Meat Lover Skillet, which comes with home fries topped with ham, bacon, sausage, peameal bacon (takes breath), two scrambled eggs, mozz, cheddar cheese, and Hollandaise sauce.
