Best Burgers (and sweet potato fries)

Food Tourist | May 7, 2006 10:22 PM

Looking for the tastiest "homemade" burgers in GTA...

Just tried Yellow Griffin on Bloor West - their turkey burger is overseasoned and I had to give up before finishing it. The flavouring definitely overpowered the Calypso toppings I selected. Lamb burger was also strongly-flavoured but decent. Toppings (Calypso and Valentine) were good as were the tasty roasted red pepper and curry dips. Definitely the crispiest and thinnest sweet potato fries around (though not 'homemade' and lacking in flavour, sadly) and yummy thick onion rings.

Allen's on Danforth makes a delicious beef burger - small in diameter but done perfectly to order (although they did mix up our burgers). $8.50 includes burger and choice of cheese with the usual toppings (tomato, pickle, onion, lettuce). For extra $, plate of sweet potato fries (served with sour cream - not an inspired pairing) proved surprisingly crunchy on the outside though tended to be a little soft. (Would have been nice for the server to tell us that the burgers didn't come with fries before he delivered them, however.)
