Whenever we visit Burlington – for the Chilly Half Marathon event, for example ( http://www.chillyhalfmarathon.ca/site-chilly/Chilly_Half.html ) – we eat at Boon Burger. Their burgers are without a doubt the finest veggie burgers we’re ever had at a restaurant in Ontario. They also have free fast wi-fi so you can post your race photos whilst you warm up (the Chilly Half invariably lives up to its name) and refuel!

The Southwest Crunch, with buffalo bbq sauce, ranch, corn chips, onion, lettuce and tomato. The range of textures here is satisfying and deep, from the crunchy chips through the crusty bun, through the firm patty to the fresh salad and just enough sauce. This is very intelligently put together, created by somebody who clearly loves their burgers.

All of the burger patties are made fresh daily, or you can pay a little extra ($1.75) and get a Beyond Meat patty instead. All burgers are served with a COBS whole wheat, seeded bun ( https://www.cobsbread.com/ ) and are well priced at $9.75 max (the sandwiches are $7.75 max). If you want a double patty it’s $2.75 more. Very reasonable prices.

The Jalapeno Chedda, with bermuda mayo, cheeze, jalapenos, lettuce, onion and tomato. This is a more moist, saucy burger than the Southwest Crunch, more a burger to eat with the knife and fork rather than the hands. Unless you want gooey hands, that is. Which isn’t a bad thing.

Aside from burgers there are also pizzas, brats (made with Beyond Meat bratwurst), salads and a range of poutine.

Not The Same ol’ Poutine.

Boon Burger is in Burlington centre and a few minutes walk from the Art Centre, which is also the HQ for the Chilly Half Marathon. Lake Ontario is within a 3 minute walk and there’s plenty of parking nearby (we parked in the municipal car park which is free on the weekends).
