It’s back, Toronto! Canada’s biggest burger event of all time, Le Burger Week is back and they’ve released a list of all the restaurants participating in the event so far, although stay tuned because more will definitely be joining the party.
From local bars to cafes, Toronto is in for a very special TWO weeks of some wildly tasty creations in celebration of its 10th anniversary and we couldn’t be more excited. Over 700 restaurants across Canada are participating in this event!
Not entirely sure what we’re commemorating? Well, for those of you who have yet to sink your teeth into Le Burger Week, here’s a rundown of what you’ve been missing. Every September, in support of locally-owned businesses, this delicious festival encourages everyone from pubs, cafes, 5-star establishments, and Canadian chains alike to go head to head in a battle of the buns.

Each spot is tasked with creating an over-the-top, unique, and above all, super tasty burger in hopes of winning the prestigious title of “best in the city,” voted by you, the taster! In addition to this, a portion of the proceeds made from each burger sold will go to one of two charities chosen by the organization – Anorexia and Bulimia Québec (ANEB) and the United Way.
