Through some mutual friends, I had the pleasure of being introduced to Elizabeth and Christos, owners of the Kingston Road (Scarborough) location of Big Boy’s. Toronto (and many cities) is still enjoying the proliferation of burger joints.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Big Boys in located at 2851 Kingston Road in Scarborough and it’s open Monday to Friday 11-8pm and Saturday 11-7pm. Sunday’s closed.
