Good burgers in the northern parts of Scarborough, where I live, can be hard to find. In fact, up until November 2011, my only real option within 10-15 minutes of driving was Moxie’s, who make a mighty mean “Xtreme Burger.”
Well, burger-lovers rejoice: Big Moe’s has opened up at Kennedy and Steeles.

Scarborough, ON M1V 4S4
I ordered the Juicy Lucy burger, which is a patty stuffed with cheese on the inside, and then I went “Big”, which means I added an extra burger patty. The burger was mouth watering-ly good, the patties were perfectly cooked (though I’d ask for a little rarer next time), and I think I pretty much inhaled that thing.
Grabbed some fresh-cut fries to share as well, and they were basically cut and fried in front of us. Well seasoned, cooked just right, and disappeared in a manner of minutes.
Ended the night with a 6″ funnel cake with ice cream and strawberry sauce. I used to get these at Wonderland, and I miss them very much. The dough was cooked just right, but I would have preferred less ice cream and more strawberry sauce.
The food at Big Moe’s was great, one of the best meals I’ve had in this area. More importantly, Big Moe’s is a local restaurant that produces great food for very good prices.
Give them a try and let me know what you think, I’m definitely going back!
