Delicious Discovery: One Dozen Great Burgers in Six Nations


If you build it, they will come. Canadian restaurateur Jason Hill is proving that advice is sound not just in a cinematic baseball epic, but also on his own hometown field of dreams: Burger Barn in Ohsweken, Ontario.

There, in Six Nations of the Grand River, Canada’s largest First Nations territory, entrepreneur Jason Hill has been steadily building a business empire, first with small retail stores, then wholesale, and on to wider ventures in energy and construction.

The capstone of his achievements has been his most delicious creation, Burger Barn. Once profiled on the Food Channel, this community landmark has also become a must-taste destination for tourists in Toronto, across southern Ontario and throughout Canada.

The restaurant’s popularity is built on more than just location, more than even Jason Hill’s great recipes. Patrons enjoy the atmosphere of fun, and part of that is the constant creative burger variations that Burger Barn chefs serve up. Here are a few of the most uniquely grilled weekly specials:

The Bleu en Rouge

A peppercorn-crusted burger topped with blue cheese, thick cut bacon, house-made red onion marmalade and A1 steak sauce.

The Skoden Bread and Cheeseburger

With this delicious variation, the buns are not just grilled cheeses, they’re also stuffed — one with pulled pork, the other with brisket.

The Jason Voorcheese

A burger topped with cheddar, Monterey jack, Swiss and mozzarella cheeses plus Sriracha ketchup, smoked bacon and spring mix.

The Knó:ha Burger

A Wagyu beef patty on a bed of spring mix, topped with Brie cheese and house-made maple bacon and onion jam.

Apart from the Knó:ha Burger, each of these creations is built on Burger Barn’s signature foundation of a half-pound, home-ground Canadian AAA corn-fed beef patty, grilled to order.
