What You'll Get
Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle discs to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of gourmet burgers, craft beer, retro cocktails, and more at Burger Bar & Tequila Tavern, located in Kensington Market. The friendly staff at Burger Bar serve their decadent patties—ground fresh on-site daily from naturally raised cows, bison, lamb, or vegetables—as part of an eclectic menu of inventive, often organic comfort fare. Create a customized serving of heart-fluttering fare by piling an Ontario-raised beef patty (8 oz., $10.50) or Wagyu burger (6 oz., $16) with any of the 15+ decadent toppings ($1+ each), like coriander pesto sauce, Kimchi, or an organic fried egg. Stymied sandwich architects, on the other hand, can opt for a pre-designed delight such as the alba burger ($10), topped with truffle aioli and grape tomatoes, or the wild salmon sandwich ($9), for whose eating pleasure diners will be pitted against a gourmet grizzly. Pair any of these hearty mouthfuls with eight draft craft beers ($5.50), more than 10 types of tequila ($5+), or freshly made classic cocktails, such as the sour—fresh lemon juice and simple syrup served with a splash of your favoured liquor in a sophisticated mason jar and topped with lemon meringue ($6).
With wood-panelled walls, checkered tablecloths, and an all-seeing stag’s head keeping diligent watch over the dining room, the ever-cozy Burger Bar channels the homey yet lawless vibe of an old-fashioned saloon, providing a down-to-earth backdrop for cozy midwinter meals and landlocked riverboat gambling.
- Combine the feel of an old-fashioned saloon with the modern focus of organically and locally-grown ingredients, Burger Bar promises to become another independent must-go burger joint. – Jim Bamboulis, dine.TO
- This saloon inspired burger place knows meat. They have a good selection of quality meat for you to pick from. – Where's the Beef T.O.
