$.99 for a delicious burger at Coxwell and Gerrard?

Posted by on Jan 3, 2015 in Best of Leslieville, Blog, Burgers

Ok, I forgot to mention you will need a time machine. It was 1988. SS KRESGE’s was still rocking at 265 Coxwell Ave (Currently a Dollar Store) Here is a snapshot into the 1980’s at Coxwell and Gerrard. The end of an era. Soon the dollar stores and big box stores would take over.   Have you ever had a .99 burger at Kresges?       Don’t you miss lunch counters at our local department stores?  I knew if I had to join my mom in a painful shopping excursion I would at least get my fries and gravy. For us, it was usually the Zellers at Shoppers World. Better then or now? Definitely then. All you can find to eat at the Dollar Store is stale candy.   For more old photos of the eastside in the 1980’s click here....

Yes it’s on the east side of Coxwell which I guess, in theory makes it “The Beach” but we will have to go with “The Burgers Priest”. There is a reason why there is a line up out the door here. It’s awesome! We will have to give an honorable mention to GBK, which we also love!
