The burger as you knew it is gone, no more big chain burger joints on the radar. It’s all about the meat, how it’s cooked (grilled or flat-top) and I’m always impressed by the creativity in the toppings offered on a burger.IMG_2415

Elizabeth and Christos love sharing their food as much as creating these epic burgers. Patty sizes come in 1/4 and 1/2 pounders, then you can can double burgers, bacon, cheese, caramelized onions and that’s just the beginning.IMG_2419

If you’re looking for a health-conscious meal, it’s not going to be at a burger joint. Places like Big Boys are an indulgence and when done in moderation, you’ll be just fine.

The first time I went to Big Boys I ordered a a classic Banquet Burger – you know: bacon, cheese, tomato, relish, onions and pickles.IMG_2428

The burgers get epic – here’s the Gold Medal Burger, on the menu during the Sochi Winter Olympics.The Gold Medal Burger

By now all of you have heard about the antics of Toronto’s Rob Ford. His worship loves to eat and drink and Big Boys came up with the Rob Ford Burger…bacon, peameal bacon, 1/2lb. burger, cheese, caramelized onions, fried egg.IMG_2555

This is a Greek-owned establishment and you can order souvlaki or their take on a Philly Cheesesteak.IMG_2429

What’s a burger joing without poutine? Quebec’s gift to the food world has been adored and imitated by many and here, we have poutine with cheese curds and a smoky pulled pork and BBQ sauce.IMG_2557

Although I have not tried this (yet), there is the Mac Attack…a burger topped with ooey-gooey macaroni and cheese…and bacon!IMG_2430

There’s also some offerings if you have room for dessert: you can try the deep-fried Mars bar or battered and fried Oreo cookies.IMG_2437IMG_2442IMG_2440
