Urban Eats @ Holy Chuck Burgers - Toronto

Open for almost a year on Yonge Street, just South of St. Clair is yet another Toronto burger joint. But this ain't any ol' burger joint. Holy Chuck Burgers is known not only for their juicy burgers, but for their creamy milkshakes.

The meaty creations are very similar to The Burger's Priest, with options such as a deep fried mushroom stuffed with cheese, grilled cheese buns and even a burger fried in mustard.

I went for a simple single burger with lettuce, ketchup and caramelized onions. I tried to be just a little bit healthy by opting for the whole wheat bun, as if it matters at this point! However, I tasted my boyfriend’s burger and the regular bun is a lot softer and compliments the burger better.  
He ordered a single cheeseburger with a fried egg. Our friend ordered a cheeseburger topped with bacon, and with grilled cheese buns (see top photo).  
On the side we ordered Greek fries which were topped with feta cheese and creamy Greek dressing.  The burgers were absolutely incredible, as well as the fries.  They are thin cut, with the perfect amount of salt and crispiness.
Next was milkshake time! The Nutella Salted Caramel shake has been highly recommended and for good reason! There truly is nothing better than the combo of creamy ice cream and ribbons of Nutella in every sip. The shakes are 95% ice cream and 5% milk, so you can imagine how thick they are.

We loved our first experience at Holy Chuck so much and have been craving it ever since. I had been dreaming about the other milkshakes and dying to try the Reese's Pieces and Banana shake.

Just days after our first visit, my boyfriend and I knew it was time to go back. We chose the same burgers, but switched up the shakes. I ordered the one I just mentioned and my boyfriend went for the Peanut Butter and Jelly shake. It was quite sweet, but definitely delicious. Mine, as imagined, was incredible! Actual chunks of Reese's Pieces in my mouth with every sip. I don't know which is my favourite because I could probably drink all of them all day, every day. We also got plain fries this time, which did not disappoint.

It is safe to say that WE LOVE CHUCK! Next on my list to try is the Nutella lollipops and the funnel cake, oh and the deep fried twinkie. I may need to spend my life inside a gym...or a surgeons table.
