Help us find Winnipeg’s Best Burger!

Comment here if you have a restaurant suggestion for Winnipeg’s Best Burger. The Burger Club isn’t looking for a “good” burger, a “novelty” burger, or some hippy “meatless” burger, - we’re looking for Winnipeg’s very *best* beef burger! We’re going to start with this fairly well established Top 10 of Winnipeg Burgers, but we’re prepared to eat burgers all year if we have to in our quest for the best!

  • Dairy Delight
  • Daly Burgers
  • Dari-Whip
  • Great Burger & Fry Co
  • Johnnys
  • Luigis
  • Mrs. Mike's
  • Original Georges
  • Red Top Diner
  • VJ's

  1. Blondies has to be on the list for sheer size.

    North Star on McGregor is a new player worth considering.

    Can't wait to see the results!

  3. Thanks Anony-mous and lizzy la la. VJ’s and Blondies are definitely on the list! Didn’t know about North Star – I’ll add it and New York Burger to the list of contenders.

    Keep the suggestions coming!

  6. A friend of a friend just commented on Facebook that Original Joe's (Grant at Kenaston) has the Best "real" burgers in town.

    I know I really liked my not quite so traditional burger there. I believe Earls has a really great not chili burger. We might have to do that just to keep the women happy (there were chili complaints)

  7. I have heard that Johnnie's (I think - it is literally directly across from Dairy Wip) is great.

    Also I recently heard of Burgers Plus on Sargent (538 IIRC), it apparently has the a great and incredibly cheap burger...

  9. Unquestionably, you should put Five Guys on the list. They aren't here just yet, but they are coming in a couple of months.

    Their burgers will blow away ANYTHING Winnipeg currently offers. Give them a try...

    1. A few people have recommended Roxy’s - I was even sent a menu. I’m not sure how the logistics of reviewing out-of-town burgers would work, but I want to try Roxy’s!

  13. You should definitely head to Winston's Cafe @ 525 St. Mary's Rd in the Riverside Inn. This little hidden cafe has the best burgers around! They have a choice of signature burger that has bacon, mozza and other toppings. They, also, have chili burgers and bacon and cheese. Our whole family doesn't mind the hour long drive to get there just to taste their delicious burgers and homemade fries! Hope you get a chance to try these delicious non greasy big sized burgers :)
