Yonge Street Restaurants In North York | Yonge Burger

Updated: Mar 20

A couple of years ago, a friend was standing on Yonge Street at lunchtime, looking for the Yonge Street Restaurants in North York to eat. Struggling to find the ideal restaurant, he called us. We gave him a few suggestions, which we knew to be good. However, he later revealed that none of the options was up to much. One restaurant had tasty food but a terrible atmosphere; another was too expensive even though the service could have been better, and none was well-designed or attractive. 

We decided to see for ourselves – we piled into the car and drove down to Yonge Street. Immediately, we found that our friend was right. There was nowhere suitable for a quick bite to eat, which would be delicious and make the customer feel comfortable and welcome—that moment made us thoughtful to establish Yonge Burger.

At Yonge Burger, we set out to create more than just a place to eat; we wanted to craft an experience that combines exceptional food with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Our commitment to quality extends beyond just the ingredients we use in our burgers; it encompasses every aspect of the dining experience, from the moment you walk through our doors to the last bite of your meal.

Yonge Burger has the best team of chefs and servers, we love our suppliers, and the founders at the helm of this company are a group of food-focused friends. We feel as proud as punch to be a part of the Yonge Burger community; we can’t quite believe what we’ve achieved! To us at Yonge Burger, making and sharing food with people is a passion – eating good food in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere is of the utmost importance, which is why Yonge Burger came into being.

We had that lightbulb moment. There was a gap in the market on Yonge Street, and we took the plunge. Read on to discover our Yonge Burger Story!

The Story Of Yonge Street Restaurants In North York | Yonge Burger

From that point, we decided to open a boutique made-to-order burger shop that offered incredible juicy burgers, looked good, and felt clean and fresh yet friendly. We knew a burger shop like this would be a benchmark for all the food lovers of North York and Toronto – quick and easy food meets comfortable, stylish, and opulent.

We quickly got the ball rolling, looking for premises with a good view and parking; however, we were still looking for something. We struggled to find somewhere for months until a friend mentioned that a jewelry shop was for sale on Yonge Street. Without hesitation, we contacted the seller and offered the selling price. The deal was done, and a matter of days later, Covid-19 broke out.

The entire country, the whole world, was closed for business. Our deal was refused. Months went by, and eventually, we came to a new arrangement with the landlord of the jewelry shop. On August 1st, 2020, we took over the old jewelry shop, which needed significant refurbishments. So, we contacted our designer in Italy and our contractor, Belle View Construction Ltd, and they immediately started work on Yonge Burger's design. Please read about the renovations and our inspiration for our sleek design at Yonge Burger here!

After a lot of hard work (and complications thanks to the pandemic!), we are proud to welcome you to the restaurant Yonge Street never knew it needed! At Yonge Burger, you will receive excellence in every way, and most importantly, you will always be served outstanding, mouth-watering food with a big smile.

Join us as we embark on this exciting journey, celebrating our community's resilience and the joy of sharing delicious meals together. From our carefully crafted menu to our inviting atmosphere, we invite you to experience the magic of Yonge Burger firsthand and become part of our story.
