Proudly servicing the Ottawa area since 2014, Stuffed Burgers and Pizza is one burger restaurant you must visit. 

Staying true to its mission to provide high-quality food, we trust the products and services it provides to be great.

We like that its enjoyable ambiance is matched with an extensive menu. The vast selections range from stuffed gourmet burgers and poutine to salads and desserts. 

Dressed with a homemade chipotle ranch sauce, The Juicy-Biggie is a must-try. We also think that its poutine is to die for. 

Alongside a great presentation is a perfect balance of spices. We also appreciate that portions are generous enough to leave a hungry stomach satisfied. 

It’s nice that operating hours are extended until 2 AM on Fridays and Saturdays. But should you decide to enjoy good food at home, you may choose to have your orders picked up or delivered. 

Unfortunately, the restaurant is closed on Sundays. There have also been some complaints about the burgers being dry and less flavorful than they should be. 

Nevertheless, Stuffed Burgers and Pizza remains one of our top choices for the best burger restaurants in the area. 

With a wide selection of products, convenient dining options, and a friendly crew, it is worth a visit. 

Pros

  • Extensive menu
  • Great food and presentation
  • Generous portions 
  • Various dining options

Cons

  • Issues with food-quality inconsistency
  • Closed on Sundays

Customer Reviews

The perfect balance of the spices

“I was told by a friend to check this place out and man I’m regretting that I waited so long. We have tried Burger and and Pizza tonight and both were amazing. I love how the burger taste and the perfect balance of the spices. Highly recommend. I will be back next weekend.” — Sepehr Najafzade, Google Reviews

Absolutely delicious

“Absolutely delicious! Wanted to try something new and I’m glad I did! The food was fantastic. I had Donny’s burger with fries and it was perfect. The fries had a nice seasoning to them as well! The people working there were very friendly and gave recommendations! Definitely gonna be coming here again!” — Joshua Crabbe, Google Reviews

Founded in 2013, Burgers n’ Fries Forever came about as a product of different cultures. 

Specializing in halal food, all of its meat products are certified by the Islamic Food And Nutrition Council of Canada (IFANCC).

We like its belief in equality — that people should have equal access to great food like burgers and fries. 

As its name suggests, Burgers n’ Fries Forever offers burgers and fries that come in various combinations. 

Using only fresh AAA Angus halal custom beef blend, we think that the burgers here taste amazing. 

The Melt Combo and the Nashville Hot Chicken Combo are must-tries that can be availed of at reasonable rates. 

The poutine is also great, should you need to pick another option from its menu. But since it focuses on burgers and fries, choices are rather limited.

It’s nice to know that all fries are made of hand-cut PEI russet potatoes. The beef, veggies, vegan patties, and even the gravy, are gluten-free, which is perfect for those with some strict dietary requirements. 

There’s a catering service, too. The only downside is that it comes with a minimum order of $100, requires 48-hour notice, and advance payment. 

While the staff members sometimes move slowly and orders occasionally get mixed up, its customer service remains great. 

You may also order online and get things delivered, which is great for movie nights at home. 

Pros

  • Specializes in halal food
  • Various burger and fries combinations
  • AAA Angus halal custom beef blend
  • Most products are gluten-free 
  • Catering service
  • Dining options
  • Open daily 

Cons

  • Limited to burgers and fries
  • Service can sometimes be slow

Customer Reviews

Good quality burgers

“Very pleased to find such good quality burgers in Ottawa that are also halal. Ambience inside is trendy. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth getting your teeth into.” — Salman Samad, Google Reviews

Nice place for burgers or poutine

“Amazing place to go for some burgers. I came here with my friends while walking through the area, and we were looking for somewhere to eat. We walked by and this place caught our eye. I ordered The Spicy Bold BBQ Burger and I have to say it was amazing. The burger was very savory and the fries were amazing. My girlfriend ordered a poutine with pickles and chicken on it and it looked and tasted amazing too. Overall I would highly recommend this place if anyone is walking through the Ottawa downtown area and is wanting a very nice place for burgers or poutine.— Jassie S., Google Review

We like Fries With Burger because of its commitment to providing a quality menu for people from all walks of life. As such, it offers various options — from halal food to vegetarian dishes.

Although the number of selections is relatively fewer compared to others, the best part is that you can customize your burger however you want. 

Browsing through its menu, you’ll find a range of 100% halal choices that include classic burgers, signature burgers, steak sandwiches, and poutines. 

If you’re up for some cheesy burgers, the luscious Juicy Lucy with grade A patty might work for you. If you’re a vegetarian, the Beyond Impossible Burger, which comes with a veggie patty, will probably be a good option. 

Its butter chicken poutine and best-selling OG Philly Steak Sandwich, which is made of thinly sliced ribeye steak, are also worth a try. 

Apart from offering great-tasting food, we like that all orders come with generous portions at prices that won’t break the bank. 

Although dining in or taking things out would cost less, you may also have things ordered online and be delivered either through Uber Eats, Skip the Dishes, or DoorDash. 

Above all, we appreciate that its owner and staff are friendly and welcoming, which makes everything about Fries With Burger worthwhile. 

Pros

  • Specializes in burgers
  • 100% halal menu with vegetarian options
  • Customizable orders
  • Generous servings
  • Various dining options
  • Open daily

Cons

  • Relatively fewer options
  • Shorter hours on Sundays

Customer Reviews

Quality here is consistent

“Flavorful burgers with quality and love put into the food. I’ve had plenty of burgers in Toronto and was highly recommended to come check out the burgers from Fries with Burger. My first order was the Juicy Lucy, and it was perfect in every aspect. From the taste of the buns, the freshness of the vegetables and the taste of the bun. In fact we loved it so much, we ordered a second one, as well as tried the Spicy. All in all, way better than Ozzy’s, Burger Factory and Burgers n Fries Forever. The quality of their burgers have gone down since they started to franchise out. Quality here is consistent. All burgers were very delicious and I highly recommend checking out Fries with Burger out.” — Hassan Fazal, Google Reviews

Incredible burgers and friendly service

“Incredible burgers and friendly service. Man, I can’t remember the last time I had a really good burger. This was awesome. The bun was nicely toasted and crispy, all the fillings were freshly cooked and vegetables had a nice crisp. The owner recommended their house sauce which I really liked. Fries were incredibly soft yet crispy with seasoning. Overall highly recommend visiting and trying the food here!” — Jodi R, Google Reviews

The King Eddy restaurant first opened its doors to the public back in December of 2014. 

Located in the heart of the Byward Market, it provides a wide variety of burgers and other food selections that are made of quality ingredients.

One of the things we like is its proprietary blend of never-frozen, hand-rolled beef balls. The fresh ground beef, along with other quality ingredients, makes every bite worth it.

Among your options include burgers, fried chicken, hand-cut fries, hotdogs, and desserts. The King Eddy Burger, which was originally designed back in the 1950s, is a double cheeseburger you can’t miss.

The Quebec Poutine is also highly recommended, although some might not be very much satisfied with the portions. The Northern Fried Chicken, with prices starting at only $17.99, is also worth trying. 

We like that the restaurant is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The 24-hour extended service from Thursday to Saturday is commendable as it helps people enjoy quality food at any given time of the day.

It’s also great to know that everything on its menu is take-out friendly. You may opt to have things delivered if you’re preoccupied with other stuff. 

Although the service can sometimes slow down, especially when the restaurant gets packed with people, we still think that The King Eddy is a good place for burgers. 

Its welcoming staff and good food at reasonable prices make it a great choice. 

Pros

  • A wide variety of choices
  • Proprietary blend of beef balls
  • 24-hour extended service 
  • Take-out friendly menu
  • Open daily 

Cons

  • Service can be slow at times
  • Does not accept reservations

Customer Reviews

The best burger in Ottawa

“This is the best burger in Ottawa. It’s huge (comes with two patties), very generous with toppings, and you can taste how fresh it is. It’s the quintessential sloppy, delicious, smash burger. Their signature sauce is also unique and tasty, and their breakfast sandwiches are killer. I highly recommend this place.” — Steph Ochej, Google Reviews

Owned and run by people with years of experience in the restaurant industry, Bite Burger House is one of our top choices for burger cravings. 

We like its extensive menu that covers pretty much everything from burgers and sandwiches to poutines and nachos.

On your first visit to one of its 2 locations, you might want to try its Jucy Lucy, which is a combination of chuck, some cheese curd, and caramelized onions. 

Another must-try is the poutine with homemade gravy for $12.

If you have gluten allergies, you may choose to order burgers with gluten-free buns for an additional $1.50.

We appreciate that Bite Burger House has a kid’s menu that is specially curated for younger customers. 

Among the choices here are some of the kids’ favorites, which include a burger with fries, mac n’ cheese, and some chicken strips. 

There is a wide selection of drinks, too, that can complement every bite. To offer the best, it has affiliated with some great local beer providers such as Beau’s All Natural Brewing Co. and Muskoka Brewery. 

You may choose to dine in at its cool and nice patio, take your food out, or have your orders delivered. 

The only downside is that not all options are available for take-outs and that UberEats is only made available at market locations.

In general, we like its reasonable pricing, although some cling to the pricier end. Although there have been some complaints against a few workers being rude or racist, it remains one of our best choices for burgers.

Pros

  • Extensive menu
  • Accommodates some dietary requirements 
  • Kids’ menu
  • A wide selection of drinks
  • Dining options 
  • Has 2 locations

Cons

  • Some items can be pricier 
  • Issues with racism 

Customer Reviews

A solid place to get a burger

“This is a solid place to get a burger. Service was friendly. Their smokey ketchup grew on me and their fries were good. Some of the burgers were pepper crusted which was interesting. They have a nice patio in the back.” — B, Google Reviews

Best burger I have ever had

“Best burger I have ever had. I got Nana’s favourite. The chips and house made guacamole is amazing, and the drinks are great too. Highly recommend the cucumber one (can’t remember what it was called). Great staff and lovely back patio!” — Jean McLeish, Google Reviews
