With or without cheese, single or double (or even triple!), few dishes are as synonymous with “comfort food” as the hamburger. Indeed, these sandwiches, found almost anywhere on the planet, can be prepared in a thousand and one ways. Even though the debate over the “best burger in town” has been going on for ages, no matter how you garnish it, the burger is for many of us the quintessential delight when it comes to forgetting your diet and enjoying a bit of self-indulgence.

Here are 5 downtown restaurants that offer their version of the perfect burger.

Hero Certified Burger

This Bishop street restaurant prides itself on having an environmental approach, serving burgers made with all-natural 100% Canadian Angus beef raised without hormones or antibiotics. In addition to the many creative variations that are offered, you can build your own burger according to your tastes: choose your patty (between 6 and 10 oz, halal and vegetarian options available), your bread (several options are available, including gluten-free), your cheese (blue cheese, yum!) and your choice of sauces, salads, toppings and sides.

Notre Boeuf de Grâce

Building on their success in the NDG district, the owners of this establishment opened their downtown address with the same idea of offering exceptional burgers in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, worthy of a neighborhood restaurant. Meat lovers will be delighted with the burgers made with fresh, high-quality beef that is ground daily on site. For vegetarians, the restaurant now offers the “Impossible Burger”, made with 100% plant-based patties.

Mister Steer

Mister Steer

It was in 1958 that Mister Steer, a modest 9-seat restaurant in the Latin Quarter at the time, served its first ground beef patty. Today located on Sainte-Catherine Street, this restaurant has become a true Montreal institution, thanks to its famous Steerburger, made from refined cuts of kosher beef and a unique seasoning blend. Fun fact: over 60 million Steerburgers have been served to date!
