I went to the Queen St E and Coxwell location after some beach volleyball; there is another location at Yonge and Lawrence. This location does not let you eat inside the shop because it’s so tiny. It only has a little waiting area with some stools and a counter, but not for eating.

I always wanted to try this place because I’ve driven past it before and there was always a line-up outside. Also, I heard lots of good things about their Secret Menu.
Food With Legs has a detailed description of the Secret Menu at Burger’s Priest.
I tried the ‘Pope‘ – $15 after tax; this is one of the best burgers I’ve had in Toronto.
This is a cheese burger with 2 very fresh and juicy patties, with a deep-fried cheesy portobello mushroom (aka the ‘option’) in the middle. This is very good. If you’re a first timer to Burger’s Priest, I would recommend this. I haven’t tried the other ones yet but based on testimonials from my friends who’ve tried the ‘Pope’, ‘High Priest’ and the ‘Vatican’, they also preferred the ‘Pope’.
It’s a bit expensive, but seeing as how their burgers are untouched by chains like Harvey’s, Hero Burger, McD, Craft, and South St; I wouldn’t mind paying a little extra for this burger once in a while.
Having said that, I do want to try the other 24 burger joints listed in Toronto Life’s article of Toronto’s 25 best burgers.
