“The time has finally come for Harry’s to sling its last burger at 160 Springhurst Ave.”
And with that line, Harry’s Charboil announced its closing date on social media.
Located in Parkdale, the popular burger spot says the closure is due to rent increases and maintenance cost at their location.
“With recent rent increases, a six month demo clause hovering over our heads, and unexpected infrastructure costs required to maintain this location, it’s time for us to close this chapter and find a new home for Harry’s,” read a post by the joint.
Their last day of operation is on October 5.

Well folks. The time has finally come for Harry’s to sling its last burger at 160 Springhurst Ave. We always knew it wasn’t forever but there was always a dream of preserving this gem for as long as humanly possible. With recent rent increases, a 6 month demo clause hovering over our heads and unexpected infrastructure costs required to maintain this location, it’s time for us to close this chapter and find a new home for Harry’s. We invite EVERYONE to please join us over the next 7 weeks until our last service on October 5th for a night that you will surely remember! That’s still a total of 51 days to eat burgers, 7 Spaghetti Tuesdays, and 2 remaining BOGO Rent Week Specials. Before opening, people were very suspicious of the new owners. (Very suspicious!!) Rumours of a Margarita bar went viral. Two months after opening, the No Frills roof collapsed. But overtime, the community both old and new embraced us. For that, we will be forever grateful. Thank you to our staff both past and present for believing in Harry’s. You guys are an extension of Harry’s and none of this could have been possible without you! To our OG’s… John, Nadeen, Sandy, Penny, Bobby, Harvey, June, David, Victor, Lawrence, Sue, Stephen, Jimmy, Trevor, Daphne, Marianne, and Mrs Kim. Thank you for believing In Version 2.0. To our neighbourhood guardian, Dave. Thank you for always watching our back. To all our new regulars. Thank you for supporting us and we look forward to serving you again in 2020. To Parkdale for always keeping things interesting. And last but not least, to the original dudes who started Harry’s 51 years ago. George, Tommy and Sam. We only ever met Sam through pictures and George always complained about our beer selection. Tommy…. Behind that ‘hard as fuck’ egg cooking stare and the two years of negotiations finally decided it was time to retire and handed us the keys to three unforgettable years…1/2
“That’s still a total of 51 days to eat burgers, seven Spaghetti Tuesdays, and two remaining BOGO Rent Week Specials,” said the folks at Harry’s.
The cash-only burger joint offers breakfasts until 4 pm, and plenty of burgers to choose from. The BOGO Rent Week Special allows you to buy one Plain Jane and get another free on the last Wednesday of every month.
And with two remaining, you know when to go say your burger goodbyes.
