We’ve seen a plethora of amazing new restaurants and eateries grace our streets in 2018 already, from Kinton Ramen to Masrawy, but not very many of them are classic burger joints. Well, we’re happy to report that a new such fast food joint has just opened its doors to the world, and it’s pretty darn special.

Gladiator Burger & Steak can be found at 6039 Erin Mills Parkway, near the Windwood Drive intersection, just outside of Streetsville. It’s a delightful new classic burger eatery, with a fun Roman gladiator theme, and the food ain’t bad either.

Gladiator Burger & Steak serves-up perfectly juicy 6oz burgers that are said to rival Burger Priest! Indeed, the restaurant holds an impressive 4.4 stars on Google, based on 138 reviews! As a bonuse, the burgers are made in-house and are halal, so they’re good for everyone.

The burgers are huge to boot, with the namesake Gladiator Burger, a double pattie with all the trimmings, costing $12. Beyond that, you can get a Hawaiian burger (with pineapple), chicken sandwich, and sides like onion rings, sweet potato, cheese fries, poutine, and plenty more.

Gladiator Burger & Steak is also known for its excellent customer service, with the staff being very personable and the managers even mingling with customers. So you can expect some great service as well as some great food.

Gladiator Burger & Steak has joined the ranks as one of the city’s best burger joints. So head to Streetsville now and give it a try for yourself, if you’re brave enough to test the Gladiator!
