Toronto’s always a busy scene for burger spots. That’s undeniable with the amount of instagram pages dedicated JUST for burger spots. Would it really be North America if we didn’t have the burger? However recently, we’re starting to see a trend on a whole new variety of burgers that really switch up the game, for example the sushi burger. Just like so, I had the chance to visit a farely low profile burger spot that specialize on burgers with a twist. I say low profile due to the shop’s deceivingly small size but the never ending lineup of customers speaks for itself on the quality of the food. Located near College Street in downtown Toronto, PG Clucks is a street food style joint that serves anything fried chicken from crispy tenders to mouth watering burgers. There was a bit of difficulty locating the store as their sign isn’t exactly the company name, so if you’re willing to give this spot a try, be on the lookout for the sign I’ve posted below!
Upon my visit, there was a shortage of staff, which meant a bit of a waiting time. However if you’re patient, you’ll be glad for the wait! Also, due to the small size of the store, there is no seating to dine on spot unfortunately, but the food is perfectly compact enough to grab on the go.
That being said, their menu is the showstealer. For a cheap price of just $7 like most their burgers, I decided to opt for their classic burger. There’s zero clean way to eat this burger, but it’s worth every messy bite. This classic burger comes with a thick fried chicken patty topped with coleslaw, pickles, smoky chili sauce, & buttermilk ranch sauce. The proportion of the burger is also perfect considering the small size being balanced out with thickness of the patty.
