Battle Results! Best Burger Battle: Mississauga vs. Hamilton

Published October 4, 2019 at 3:59 pm


Have you been in the mood for a great burger and haven’t been quite sure where to go to get one? Since there is no shortage of selection in the GTHA, the choice as to where to dine can be a tough one–especially when great burger restaurants are plentiful across cities.

When it comes to a great burger, every ingredient counts. Is the bun soft and savoury? Is the beef flavourful?   

Both Mississauga and Hamilton are known for their respective food scenes, and both offer a ton of excellent burger joints–but only one city can have the absolute best hotspots.

What places were competing? 


Top 5 Burgers in Mississauga

When you’re hungry, nothing beats a burger stacked with everything from bacon to chilli to brie cheese. Mississauga has some choice hotspots for burgers, including The Burger’s Priest in Port Credit, the City Centre hot spot The Wilcox, the class east end joint C & Dubbs Hamburgers, the Tomken and 401-area On the Bun Burgers and our number one pick, Rick’s Good Eats (located right on the Mississauga/Brampton border). While Rick’s is our proud number 1 pick, all of the places will leave you more than satisfied when you’re in the mood for an awesome lunch.



Top 5 Burgers in Hamilton

Hamilton is known for its up and coming food scene, and it’s a great place to go if you’re in the mood for a great burger. If you have a hankering for beef (or a beef alternative), you can check out the aptly-named Delirious Burger Co., which operates two locations, the delicious and customer service-focused Pinks Burgers, the simple but satisfying The Burnt Tongue, the inventive, must-visit gem that is The Ship and our number one pick, the quirkily-named and reliably delicious Hambrgr. While Hambrgr is our number one pick, we know that Hamilton will satisfy any burger lover. 


We asked you which city has the best casual restaurants and you voted.

Here are the results!
