Burger of the Year: how The Burger’s Priest makes its delicious, gut-busting Vatican City

Burger of the Year

Where: The Burger’s Priest, an all-American burger joint that’s evangelical about meat. 1636 Queen St. E., 647-346-0617.

How much: $10.

The meat: Two four-ounce patties made from a custom blend of premium beef, freshly ground in-house every hour and cooked to medium.

The cheese: Each juicy patty is topped with a slice of wonderfully trashy processed cheese.

The bun: Two artery-clogging grilled cheese sandwiches, each made with more processed cheese and a no-fuss white bun.

The fixings: Forget about newfangled toppings. The options are puritanically standard—ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion. Fried onions are $1 extra.
