Big news for fast-food fanatics: beloved American burger chain Five Guys Burgers and Fries is making inroads into downtown Toronto and other areas of the city. After taunting our taste buds with the opening of a Scarborough location last year, as well as a number of locations circling the outskirts of the GTA, it seems that Five Guys is finally making the big leap downtown.
According to media representative Molly Catalano, there are two new locations set to open in Toronto in the immediate future: one at Yonge and Dundas (329 Yonge St.) and another further uptown near York Mills and Don Mills (865 York Mills Rd). Catalano confirms that there is a Leaside location in the works for later in the year, possibly October or November.
The Yonge and Dundas location is slated to open its doors around mid-July, but if you can’t wait to get your fix, the uptown location will be opening in the first week of June (which is great news for us — our office is just around the corner).
CORRECTION: a previous version of this article incorrectly stated that the downtown location of Five Guys would be at Yonge and Adelaide. The correct location is at Yonge and Dundas. We regret the error.
