About South St. Burger

South St Burger, Canadian Fast Food Franchise

At South St. Burger every item on the menu is designed to be “Best in Category” – offering not only top quality ingredients, but the best taste as well. Serving real food with outstanding flavour is what sets South St. Burger apart. We believe that better beef really does make better burgers; our Alberta Angus beef is raised without the use of antibiotics or hormones and is free of preservatives or fillers. Our 4 and 6 ounce, 100% beef patties are fresh, not frozen, and grilled to order. Our hand cut New York Fries, fresh-cut onion rings, real ice cream milkshakes and wide variety of toppings are all made from fresh, premium ingredients.
