The best hamburger in Hamilton can be found at local restaurant Hambrgr. With two locations to choose from this homegrown success story is bringing the mighty beef patty new glory with its eclectic menu offering. They also serve up some of the best onion rings I’ve ever had in my life. All hail the mighty hamburger at Hambrgr. A must visit on your next visit to Hamilton.
The smaller of the two locations is located off of James Street North on 49 King William Street. This is the location I’m visiting today. It’s Easter Monday so it’s quieter than normal. Be prepared to line up as both locations are very popular. Trust me though when I say that the line up is worth it.
The sun is shining so I grab a table on the patio and before I even decide on which hamburger to try I order a side of Onion Rings. I’ve got friends in Hamilton say these are the best I’ll ever have and I’m hoping they are right.
OMG, they were right. These onion rings are THE BEST I’ve ever had. Thick cut onion slices, battered and panko crusted, then fried just until the onions are cooked but still firm. There is no soggy onion inside the crunchy exterior. Eat them alone or dip them in the INSERT sauce. They are perfect either way.
Now on to my hamburger. After a few minutes looking at the menu I finally decide on the Bacon is Gouda burger. I have a choice of three bacons, I choose the log smoked, to accompany the smoked Gouda, Whisky Onion Jam, tomato, lettuce and old fashioned Mayo. All served on a sesame crusted bun.
I’m going in for my first bite and the verdict is shut the front door! Bite after bite it just keeps getting better. Some burgers are thick patties, at Hambrgr they are thinner and larger yet still very juicy. In fact, this was a three napping hamburger.
If you are craving a lip smacking good hamburger the next time you are in Hamilton the decision on where to go to easy, there is only one place to find the best hamburger in Hamilton. You’ve got to go to Hambrgr.
