Being the largest city in Canada, it follows logic that Toronto would have the most restaurants of any city in the nation. But the Big Smoke is also home to some of the most outrageous food on the planet. We’re talking about dishes such as chicken wings that might lead to a hospital visit, grilled cheese with ice cream in the middle, and burgers with six patties. Check out our list of some of the most outrageously good eats in the city.
Let’s get the “burger challenge” out of the way. Six patties, six slices of cheese, three servings of bacon, and grilled cheese sandwiches in lieu of buns. This thing is savage. Holy Chuck makes a delicious burger, so even if you’re not going to bite into this challenge, you can enjoy the rest of their menu.

They’re called “Death Wings,” man! Don’t eat these. Find a friend, or maybe an enemy to indulge in this outrageous Toronto delicacy while you watch or man the phone to the hospital. On the positive side, you go down in history and get your name on the Wall of Pain if you go for it.

As the name suggests, all of the burgers at Burger Priest are incredible, but the “Vatican on Ice” takes the cake for outrageous eats at this joint. Two grilled cheese sandwiches squish a couple of scoops of ice cream in this delicious artery clogger. Delicious. Scary.
Address: 3397 Yonge Street, 1636 Queen Street East, 463 Queen Street West.
Hours: Vary at each location
Phone: Consult Burger Priest website for location near you
The menu and vibe at The Black Hoof might deceive you. An expansive cocktail menu, a meat-centric menu with a lot of charcuterie. Then you see it: Foie gras with banana pain perdu on top of a bed of Nutella. Obviously, you’re going to enjoy this.

Saving Grace is an awesome spot for brunch, no doubt. If you’re looking for some bacon and pancakes in the morning, Saving Grace will deliver on both, at once. The bacon is literally infused within the pancakes here. No rationing, cutting, or self control required to get that bacon and maple combo with every bite.

Phone: (416) 703-7368
When it comes to flavour, it’s hard to go wrong with meat and cheese. The Ultimate Hot Dog at Uncle Betty’s Diner delivers on that tried-and-true combo with mac and cheese, pulled pork, meatloaf, cheddar cheese & garlic aioli on a hot dog.

On the topic of hot dogs; if you haven’t tried the amazing and unique Japanese street food that Gushi serves up, get on it. Their octopus balls with mayo, teriyaki, and ginger are amazing. But try the tempura battered deep fried hot dog on a stick to truly get a sense of what Gushi has to offer.
Address: 238 Queen St. West
Hours: Mon-Fri 11:30 – 6:00 pm
Phone: (647) 621-0887
After the past few summers in Toronto, you’d have to have been living under a rock (a cold rock) to not know of Sweet Jesus. Any line is worth the Hella Nutella: Chocolate ice cream, wafer cookies, pistachio, cornflakes, and Nutella fudge sauce. It’s deadly.
Address: 106 John St
Hours: Sun-Mon 9-10pm, Tues-Sat 9-11pm
The Stockyards makes it into this list for the entirety of their menu. Amazing fried chicken and burgers including “The Dirty Thirty,” an insane patty filled with blue cheese, pickles, onion rings, and cheddar. But the real star of the menu is the chicken and waffles. Get a to-go container or risk ruining your day.
Address: 699 St. Clair Ave. W
Hours: Tues-Sat 9-9pm, Sun 9-3pm and 5-8pm
Phone: (416) 658-9666
