Burgers are big in Toronto. From old standards like Dangerous Dan’s and Johnny’s to nouveau joints like Big Smoke Burgers and BQM Burger Shoppe, Toronto is smack in the middle of a burger revival.
Even the most seasoned burger eating veteran might have trouble sorting out where to get the best burger in Toronto with all the new joints that are popping up. That’s where Burger Derby comes in.
Burger Derby is a social burger review website that aims to use a combination of expert reviews and crowd-sourced ratings to determine Toronto’s top ten burgers. Burger Derby allows users to rate and review individual burgers, rather than rating whole restaurants. “We recognize that not every burger on a restaurant’s menu is created equal,” says Basil Godevenos, a co-creator of the Burger Derby review website. “That’s why we rate the burgers, not the joints. We want people to know not just where to go, but what to order when they get there.”
BurgerDerby.com, which launched early this year, comes at a perfect time for Toronto. Torontonians are giving the burger status as a valid gourmet option. Toronto foodies even named newcomer joint The Burger’s Priest as the third best place to get fed, according to the 2012 Toronto ZAGAT survey.
Toronto loves burgers, and now it has a burger review website to help people find the perfect combination of beef and bun.
