2. The Burger's Priest 1636 Queen St E, Toronto, M4L 1G3

The Burger's Priest isn't a restaurant - it's a religion. It's about redeeming the burger from sinfully over-processed and over-spiced frozen patties, and bringing it back to pure fresh ground beef and simple toppings. Order "The Pope" from the secret menu - you won't actually receive Pope Francis, but you will get a double cheeseburger with two roasted portabello mushrooms, which is the next best thing.

3. Holy Chuck 1450 Yonge St, Toronto, M4T 1Y7

With over 25 signature burgers, 15 shakes, and 10 fry options, Holy Chuck is not your typical burger joint. Get their classic namesake burger or, if you're feeling fancy, the "Holy Duck Burger" - a single patty with foie gras, truffle oil, and Canadian maple syrup. Wash that down with a bacon, fudge and sea salt shake, and don't leave without trying the deep-fried Nutella lollipops for a fantastic meal that may or may not end with you in a sugar-and-fat-induced coma.

5. Magoo's Gourmet Hamburgers & Ice-Cream 4242 Dundas St W, Toronto, M8X 1X3

If you just want a straight-up quality burger Magoo's is a terrific option. They use only fresh lean beef to make a handful of different satisfying burgers.
