The Burgers Priest

The Burger's Priest

We’ve got a beef with burger joints these days. They use frozen patties. Or, they over-season their food. Or, they use ingredients that have no place in, or on, a burger. Who needs mango, pear and pine nuts? Silly. Our mission is this: keep it simple. In June 2010, with 350 square feet, four stools and a small meat grinder, Shant opened his first restaurant on Toronto’s Queen Street East. He called it, The Burger’s Priest. Eager devotees would walk an extra mile for a no-nonsense meal, then line up down the block to order juicy offerings off a repurposed hymn board. Since then, we’ve filled those four stools, and then some. We’re creating more locations, and more burgers. Next, we’ll take burger redemption to the international level. But we’ll never forget our commandments: quality, purity and simplicity.
