Some of them even have some very special food and beer pairings! If you’re looking for a quick bite or a hearty meal, there’s sure to be something for everyone on this list.

Best burgers in Montreal

1. Chef’s Specials at QDC Burger

This take-out only window in the restaurant’s rear parking lot was as popular as it was profitable for the steakhouse, QDC Burger, which was originally intended as a great back alley alternative behind Queue de Cheval.

Since then, QDC has opened locations in the Mile End and at the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, allowing burger fans to choose from dozens of toppings, including lobster, foie gras, Cajun shrimp, and black spring truffles.

Prices range from $14.99 to $22.99 for these specials, which are only available while supplies last.

2. The Hangover at Burger Bar Crescent

Crescent Street restaurant’s burgers are well-known for their outrageousness, including the Hangover:

A burger with small-sized poutine, mushrooms, caramelized onions, arugula and roast-garlic aioli that always places at the top of Montreal’s Burger Week.

This downtown eatery has a wide variety of burgers to pick from, making it a popular choice for hungry diners. $19.

3. Five Napkins Burger at Le Boucan

This smoky joint isn’t one to play around. It’s no accident that their gigantic burger is dubbed The Five Napkins burger.

Smothered with jalapeno mayo and BBQ sauce on a brioche bun, this smokey burger is more than a mouthful of flavorful meat and condiments. In the warmer months, you may enjoy it on their lovely rear patio. $18.

4. Motherf***er Burger at Mile-Ex

This Mile-Ex location, which specializes in a harmonious fusion of street cuisine and seafood, exploded into the scene with such notoriety that some believe it was Gregory Paul’s restaurant that earned this neighborhood its name.

Motherf***er’s simple, double or triple burgers are a big draw for the hipsters and architects who are moving north from Mile End because of the growing cost of living in the region. A single costs $14, a double is $17, and a triple is $19.

5. Hamburger at Lawrence

The quality of the meat served in restaurants varies widely, but you can typically bank on at least a few places for consistently good service and consistently high-quality meat.

Among them is this one. Lawrence has a butcher shop and a farm, and a single mouthful of their fresh hamburger proves them to be one of the finest in the business.

Only available for a limited time during lunch. Fries and a salad are an additional $7, making the total for the meal $13, $19.

6. Bagg Burger at Bishop & Bagg

Simply said, this is the best burger you’ll ever have the pleasure of eating. At this Mile End hot spot, the Bagg Burger is a daily house burger topped with aioli potatoes that is always—we repeat, always—one of the better selections.

Because the burger is frequently offered as part of a brunch menu, expect to find eggs and bacon on it. Vegetarian options are also available if you’d want. $16.

7. The Zeke at Pataterie Chez Philippe

In the heart of Montreal’s Gay Village, a nondescript casse-croûte has been serving up Quebecois meals since 1962.

Amherst’s best burger may be found at this Amherst hole, which serves the standard fare including hot dogs, fries, poutine, club sandwiches, and the like.

People keep going back for the Zeke, which is a burger sandwiched between two grilled cheese sandwiches, since the price is so low. The need for more explanation has been adequately addressed. $7.25.

8. Tousignant Burger at Chez Tousignant

Founded in late 2015 by highly acclaimed Montreal chefs Michele Forgione and Stefano Faita, this casse-croûte had been a long-term goal of theirs before eventually coming to fruition.

The restaurant opened to great fanfare after nearly two years of development and hasn’t been off anyone’s attention since. Everything on the menu smacks of a Quebec diner’s kitchen from the ’60s and ’70s.

If you’re shopping in the Jean-Talon market, this is an excellent afternoon snack. Between $6.25 to $8.25 each ticket.

9. Double Cheese Burger at La Boulette

Priding themselves on genuine and comforting food, this Rosemont restaurant seeks top-quality, local ingredients for every dish on the menu.

While it may be challenging to select between the dozen alternatives available, each burger has its own specialty of sorts—everything from grilled fish and fried chicken to spicy minced pork or the standard beef and cheese.

Our vote’s the standard double cheese, but you do you. $14.75 to $17.75.

10. Double Uniburger at Uniburger

When it first appeared on Montreal’s scene a few years ago, the Uniburger quickly became the city’s closest equivalent to Shake Shack or In-N-Out burger establishments in the great United States of America.

This quick-casual restaurant serves AAA Canadian beef and potato buns, a nod to typical American fast food favorites like milkshakes, twice-fried French fries, and paper-wrapped burgers. A single ticket costs $6.25, while a double ticket costs $8.75.

11. House Grind Burger at Maison Boulud

As luxurious as it may feel to dine at the Ritz-Carlton, the House Grind Burger will quickly bring you down to earth. It’s one of the priciest burgers on this list, but if you’re willing to splurge, it’s well worth it. $31.

12. Burger with Fried Oyster at Brasserie Harricana

This combination of burgers and beer is hard to beat. Burgers are the ultimate pub food, and this brewpub on the outskirts of Villeray and Mile-Ex boasts one of the best around.

Harricana’s version includes a fried oyster on top of the burger, and it is every bit as decadent as it sounds.

It’s a no-brainer to stay a little longer after you’ve finished dining because their well chosen beer list has hundreds of options that go perfectly with this. $20.

13. Suisse Pleurote at Burger de Ville

Residents of Montreal West travel from all over the city to eat at this burger stand. Located at the end of Sherbrooke Street, this family-run business is a serious candidate on this list.

The chalkboards above the griddle station at this restaurant allow customers to customize their burgers with a wide variety of fresh toppings.

Prepared dishes like the Swiss Mushroom, which has oyster mushrooms cooked to perfection with pickles and caramelized onions, are also excellent. ranging from $6.50 to $10.00.

14. Cheeseburger at Foiegwa

Even without the addition of the ‘healthy’ dose of foie gras, this cheeseburger is already delectable. Even better, while you’re about it, throw in another beef burger.

The burger is also featured on the brunch menu, which is served on Fridays and Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Foie gras is available for an additional $9.50 if you order a double.

15. Palace Hamburger at Nouveau Palais

As you approach the intersection of Parc Avenue and Bernard Street to enter this historic Mile End restaurant, time seems to stand still.

When Montreal overturned its 66-year-old prohibition on food trucks in 2013, culinary enthusiasts may recall the “Winneburgers” that were the buzz of the town.

Lucky for the rest of us, this hipster hotspot is open until three in the morning, three nights a week, from Thursday to Saturday, to feed our insatiable appetites for the massive Palace Hamburger. The base price is $12.95; bacon costs $2, and cheese costs $1.50.

16. Le Québecois at Le Hachoir

The burgers at Le Hachoir, which are perhaps best renowned for their outstanding beef tartare, will make your head spin. Two 4-ounce beef patties topped with cheese, red onions, pickles, bacon, and secret sauce are one thing;

The Québecois (8-ounce beef burger topped with cheese curds, Montreal smoked meat seasonings, pickles, coleslaw, and spicy mustard) is another. However, you are free to get as sloppy as you choose. $18.

17. Burger at Knox

The beef patty burger with polish ham, pickles, spicy mustard, and mayonnaise served at this Centre Street pub in the center of Pointe-Saint-Charles is out of this world.

At the same time, Knox Taverne is a laid-back, well-decorated tavern that serves as a great place to meet friends and spend time with loved ones. $20.

18. Buck Burger at Dillalo Burger

For more than half a century, this greasy spoon has served as one of Montreal’s earliest Italian-owned establishments.

It’s a burger that almost everyone would say you should have at least once in your life, and they’ve been serving it that way since 1929.

Their Buck burger, a variation on the Spécial burger with capicola, cheese, and spicy peppers, is outrageously greasy and wonderful.

It’s important to know that you have several options when it comes to burger buns. You can eat them as-is (steamed), dry, wet, or with the dip (brushed with hot pepper brine). $6.25.

19. Super Supreme Burger at Mister Steer

Mister Steer’s lovely decor and closeness to the Montreal Canadiens arena make it a popular destination for residents and tourists alike, despite the fact that its downtown location may be beyond its prime.

Located in the heart of downtown, this kosher burger eatery proudly proclaims that nothing is ever frozen—except its ice cream, which is never frozen.

If one standard burger isn’t enough to fill you up, consider the Giant Steerburgers or the plate of two little burgers. $17.95.

20. The #1 at L’Anecdote

A well-known Montreal culinary critic referred to this Rachel Street eatery as the “next best thing” to La Paryse, the city’s previous burger king, after a massive fire forced them to close for almost six months.

Some could argue that L’Anecdote #1 is the true cause for the restaurant’s devoted clientele: a beef patty covered with Emmental cheese, bacon, and mushrooms. The other four burger selections are beef, lamb, veal, and deer. $8.90.

21. Bâton Rouge Burger at Bâton Rouge

This steakhouse’s bar-only menu features a secret weapon: a giant cheeseburger topped with smoky bacon and Dijonnaise and fries available every day.

Even yet, this isn’t your average burger. You won’t go hungry when you order this burger, which comes with top-quality meat, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles, as well as a mountain of French fries. $17.

22. Good Morning Burger at Cosmos

Good Morning Burger at this NDG institution may be your best bet for a heart-attack-inducing burger on a Saturday morning for breakfast.

All the standard fixings are on top of an egg-filled burger cooked on a griddle that probably hasn’t been cleaned in 40 years. Okay, we exaggerate, but the point stands. Take a bite out of whichever bread you’d like. $5.50.

23. Beautys Burger at Beautys

Beauty’s a name that everyone knows. Despite the fact that the Jewish community in Montreal’s Plateau-Mont Royal district has long ago dispersed, this Jewish eatery has remained virtually unchanged.

The institution, which has been open since 1942, is well-known for its banana pancakes, milkshakes, and its Special, a toasted Saint-Viateur Bagel topped in whipped cream cheese and cured salmon, but it’s the burger that always surprises people when they visit.

The burger is bursting with flavor thanks to the use of locally sourced beef from Atwater Market. Our best assumption is that the egg-soaked griddle is to blame for making everything taste better. $13.

24. Hamburger at Dic Ann’s

The “so thin it could slide under your door” burger is now available at more than a dozen sites across Quebec, including a food truck in the Old Port during the summer months.

The smashed-flat construction and application of beef sauce (the popsicle stick it is served with is to pull it off its plate) make this eatery one among Montreal’s greatest surviving examples of a 1950s American fast-food style restaurant.

In addition to serving 1542 burgers in an hour, it has also established several other world records. $3.80.

25. Burger T!, Time Out Market

If the chef behind one of Québec’s top-rated restaurants, the Normand Laprise, is a real believer in and promoter of the “farm to table” movement, it stands to reason that his burgers would be some of the best in town.

You may choose from grass-fed beef, grass-fed lamb, or vegetarian choices, all of which are supplied ethically and sustainably.

For those times when burgers just aren’t cutting it, try something a little more indulgent, like picture-perfect hot dogs or a creamy milkshake. You won’t be able to find anything better than Laprise’s interpretations of American classics.
