This is the best we've found yet. Arguably the best burger place in the GTA, Johnny's Charcoal Hamburgers looks exactly as you would imagine it did when it opened. It has the original orange and wood paneling decorating. There isn't a place to sit (unless you count the rickety picnic table out back). The prices are cheap and the food is delicious. Rumor has it that Mike Myers used to hang out here back in the day as a Scarborough youth and I believe it. I would if I was a teenager in the area.
We took our order to go. We ordered 3 cheeseburgers for our family. They are large enough for our kids to share one between them. You can get it made the way you want. The kids just had ketchup, my husband added bacon and got everything. I had mine with fried onions, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard and relish. We ordered sides of fries and onion rings to share and everyone had a shake to finish.
*side note - if going to a place like this get the shake! They are so much better than anything Mickey D's has to offer.
Everything was just as you would hope for a place like this. This won't be the last burger we have at Johnny's.
