I had the Low Priest, one patty instead of two as in the High Priest. Burger was ok, not too flavourful. Bun is not toasted, a little small, no onion rings, only fries, a little pricey. Looking over to the wall, a large cockroach was racing across the wall over top of the picture frame. I motioned to the customer... More

Just do it. You may be thinking when you see the big sign above the entry....Stop thinking and go with your guy. Your gut will thank you. We didn't know what to order, so we went very basic and it worked out perfectly. Juicy, tasty and fresh. It's a beautiful thing. The staff is delightful and the environment, although small,... More

Delicious burger joint, with huge burgers. Made fresh and with huge patties. Great home fries. They have a version of a Big Mac that is better than the original! Not the cheapest place but good value.

Good tasting and good buns but tiny for the price. Staff friendly, decent atmosphere but Won't be coming back. Value proposition not worth it. Could rename Three Bite Burgers!

The Burger's Priest on Queen st. is an excellent choice for a "gourmet" burger in the queen West area. You can see the pattys right beside the grill so you know they are a fresh and no frozen. The variety on the menu can't be beat from the basic burger to the works, there is something for everyone. As good... More

Juicy, freshly made burgers at this joint! The burgers and fries are very good, but portions are kind of small for the price you pay. Burgers Priest has some pretty interesting kinds of burgers on their menu, don't be a wimp and give something different a try :D

The food is great here but don't order it on Eats. takes forever and it's always cold. Do yourself the favour and go there, pick it up and have a black and white shake while you wait. The cheeseburger is worth the trip!

For a new restaurant, The Burger's Priest in not to be missed. The layout takes full advantage of the smaller floor plan. I have visited on 3 occasions and the Burgers only seem to get better. Not large burgers with huge buns, the sizing is perfect and you can actually eat the whole burger. Excellent variety and No room for... More

Love coming here it's always busy but we always get a seat. The food is always right, the service is always fast and friendly and some times there's free samples of shakes.

I loved the selection of burgers. Although the resto is quiet small and sitting may be an issue for larger groups, I recommend if you are travelling solo, in couple or with a few friends.

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
