If you're one of the millions of burger lovers all over the world, you're incredibly lucky to be living in Toronto. There are very nearly unlimited options when it comes to choosing a burger restaurant. Choices start with what most people expect when someone mentions burgers, the fast food joint. Don't be fooled though, there are other options. There are burgers available at more upscale venues as well. It seems strange to head to an upscale place for burgers, but don't rule them out. Most people agree that the best burgers tend to be found at mid-ranged restaurants with high- quality service.
Fast Food Again?
What can be said about the fast food burger that hasn't been said already? They're small, the ingredients can be sub-par, and the people who put them together aren't generally known for their love of the job. So why do so many people frequent these places? The answer is simple; consistency, price, and convenience. There are fast food restaurants on nearly every corner of every major city out there. If you're hungry and driving a car, there's a good chance you can look out your window and see a fast food chain. People aren't fooled by what they get at fast food restaurants. They know exactly what they're going to get, and sometimes, the devil you know is the way to go. With lunch specials starting at one dollar during some promotional events, it's hard to deny that fast food chains are a cheap easy solution to your lunch needs. If you don't mind sacrificing great taste and quality ingredients, that is.
A Better Choice!
There's no reason to be bogged down by the prospect of a burger for lunch or dinner. You should be excited by the idea! To make sure you're getting the most out of your burger, ask yourself a few simple questions.
- Does this burger come on the freshest, most delicious bun in town?
- Was this burger prepared with mouth-watering 100% Angus Beef?
- Can I get fresh and gourmet toppings for this burger?
- What type of side orders can I get with this delicious culinary masterpiece?
Side orders can make or break your burger meal. Try to find a nice place that has different options for sides. French fries are great, but it might be time to try something a little different to spice things up. Onion chips are a refreshing change. Sweet potato fries are also a great substitute that is quickly gaining popularity. Traditional poutines have been popular menu items for a while, but what about different toppings? Have you tried a poutine with BBQ pulled pork as a topping? Or boneless wings
for that matter? They're both game changers!
If you're tired of the fast food burger, find yourself a good restaurant that won't destroy your bank account, and that offers fresh and interesting options for sides. Discovering a restaurant that has burgers made with the freshest ingredients that taste as great as they look and don't cost a week's worth of pay isn't very difficult in a city the size of Toronto. Have a look online or in the phone book and you're sure to find a great Canadian bar and grill that has exactly what you need. Once you do, you'll be happy to have it in your back pocket.
