Opened in 1969, Apache Burgers is considered an institution in Etobicoke. I dare you to find a seat during the lunch time rush. Heck, weekends at 1am can also be a challenge some nights.
Apache Burgers, located at 5236 Dundas Street West at Six Points Plaza, was introduced to me by a neighbour about 25 years ago and I still make the effort to grab a burger there about once a month. Ask anyone in Etobicoke, from teenagers to seniors, and they’ll know about Apache Burgers. I guess you can say that it spans generations. Sure there may be equally great hamburger joints across the city but Apache Burgers belongs to Etobicoke. Between your typical fast food franchise and the new gourmet burger places that seem to be popping up everywhere, Apache Burgers is in a class all by itself.
If you’ve never been, which is hard to believe, you should start with the basic hamburger and fries. However, if you’re up for a challenge order the massive Apache Burger. It’s two thick patties covered with cheese and your choice of toppings. Other recommended fare are the delicious poutine and huge onion rings (they look like donuts). But be careful with digging into the onion rings too quickly or you’ll burn your finger. The retro 50s decor, complete with neon guitar overhead and Marilyn Monroe portraits adorning the wall, goes a long way to contribute to the diner “feel”. Apache Burgers has had some famous visitors over the years including Tie Domi, Brendan Shanahan, and the Stanley Cup.
With huge sloppy burgers and fries piled high, gluttony has never tasted so good thanks to Apache Burgers in Etobicoke.
