This combination is a classic for a reason, so satisfy those old-school cravings at one of these fantastic spots!
The Burger’s Priest
Sometimes, simplicity is best. At least, that’s the belief upheld by The Burger’s Priest, which cooks over a flat-top griddle and offers fresh, premium beef and simple toppings. Try the gooey cheese-stuffed breaded Portobello burger or brave the fiery bacon cheeseburger with crushed hot peppers. Or for a potentially religious experience, try your burger sandwiched between two grilled-cheese sandwiches. Wash it all down with a Jarge-style (vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry mixed) or black & white shake.

Delux Burger Bar
If you’re looking for a chic setting for your burger consumption, look no further. Delux gives its patrons a chance to dress up not only themselves, but their burgers too! Check out their online Burger Builder, which displays both the customizable options and their nutritional value. The restaurant prides itself on its environmentally sustainable Certified Angus Beef, to which you can add anything from creamy goat cheese to onion rings to buttered lobster. Then indulge in a three-scoop handcrafted milkshake, either virgin or spiked with whiskey, Kahlua, or schnapps.

Make sure you bring a big appetite! Particularly if you try the Triple Kingburger, which features one-and-a-half pounds of their juicy Alberta Angus beef and quadruple cheese, or even the veggie option loaded with guacamole, double Swiss, and a fried egg. The cooked-to-order burgers are beyond satisfying, but you’ll definitely still be tempted to add a thick and creamy milkshake (like a classic vanilla or fancier mocha java) to your order.

The Next Act Pub
This casual pub just off Whyte Ave. offers juicy specialty burgers and a varied beer selection. Purists will enjoy the classic housemade patty with lettuce, tomato, and pickles, while the more adventurous can test out the PB&J (patty with crunchy peanut butter and housemade bacon jam) or the shrimp patty with sriracha tartar coleslaw. If you want to learn more about the secretive Cameo Burger, you’ll just have to drop by and find out for yourself!

This family restaurant has a burger for anyone and everyone! Options range from the garden burger with country Dijon sauce to a grilled turkey patty with zesty chipotle aioli to a beef patty with hardwood-smoked bacon and melted Pepper Jack. And you can’t go wrong by pairing your choice with a Monster Milkshake: a creamy classic (like vanilla, strawberry, or peach) with a bonus refill tin.
If you’re naturally indecisive, you may want to steer clear. Not only does Soda Jerks offer amazingly enticing choices like a burger with bacon, a fried egg, and hashbrowns or a beef patty with double bacon and chicken fingers, but you can create your own from an extensive list of options. Load up your chosen protein with a range of sauces and veggies and crazy fixings like chocolate-dipped bacon, Doritos, and even gummy worms. Pair it with a classic milkshake like strawberry or peanut butter—or kick it up a notch by adding a shot of vodka, rum, or whiskey.
