TORONTO — South St. Burger Co., a premium burger restaurant chain owned and operated by New York Fries, opened its 12th location Monday. The store is located in Ajax, Ont., at 269 Kingston Rd. E.
“We’re very excited to be opening our first restaurant east of Toronto in Ajax,” said Jay Gould, president of South St. Burger Co. and New York Fries. “Our Ajax customers have patiently commuted to our other locations as we built this restaurant. We look forward to a long relationship with the communities of Durham.”
South St. Burger Co.’s meat comes from cattle naturally raised on Canadian farms. The menu features third-pound burgers made from 100 per cent beef with no additives, hormones or antibiotics. Grilled whole chicken breasts and soy-based veggie burgers are also available.
The menu — with items ranging in price from about $3 to $10 — also includes sides like fresh-cut New York Fries, poutine, onion rings, garden salads and hand-scooped ice-cream milkshakes. The onion rings, like the fries, are fresh cut and cooked in trans-fat free sunflower oil.
There’s also lots of opportunity to spice things up with more than 25 traditional and exotic condiment choices, such as wasabi mayo, mango chutney and guacamole, all at no extra cost. A selection of four real cheeses, including cheddar, swiss, goat and Monterey Jack with jalapeno, are also available.
