Or opt for the good old American burg with ketchup relish, lettuce, diced onion, American cheese and Drop Sauce. For that extra crispy bite, add some bacon or even chilli. Sold on them yet? You can order for in-store pick up on their website or for delivery through Ritual.

Slayer burger prides itself on its premium quality ingredients, which makes sense since they do sell a $34 burger. Though their smash burgers aren’t even half the price, they still “slay” the burger game.

The Slit Burger is made with a Canadian AAA Beef Patty, topped with Caramelized Onion, Grilled Cheddar and Slayer Sauce, all between two Potato Buns. Looking for more of a bite? Go for the Slayer Burger, dressed the same but made with TWO Canadian AAA beef patties and bacon for that extra protein. Order online through Uber Eats and SkipTheDishes
