My husband and I just love the burgers at Golden Star, but now that we live downtown (having moved from Richmond Hill) it is a bit of a trek for burgers, fries, and a shake.
Are there any fans of Golden Star on the board who can recommend a burger place south of Bloor? I'm talking the kind of burger that is home made, with some garlic flavour and a good amount of char. And if the place had battered onion rings that are as good as the Steer Inn on Yonge Street in Richmond Hill, we would be set!
Places we have tried that were disappointing:
Dangerous Dan's (The burger was just big, not tasty)
Sizzlers (Nice to get a burger delivered until 4 am, but it was dry and blah)
Licks (Only a small step up from the Big 3 burger chains to us)
Square Boys (Had some garlic flavour, but no char, and seemed kind of off, bad fries)
Hero (Tasted exactly like the so so Harveys Angus burger but for more money)
Burger Shoppe (small, dry, tasteless burger, strange breaded onion rings)
OK OK Diner (not worth the drive to Leslieville!)
I have read good things about Burger Shack on Eglinton West but thought I would check with the Chowhounds first!
