Magic Spot AAAAAAAplus
The only real magic happening at this spot is how heavy your wallet feels after eating at this Bloor West Village mainstay. The biggest star the Magic Spot Grill has to offer is that this place, much like Square Boy, is just simply a bargain to eat at. A burger with cheese combo (a monster pile of fries & a can of brand name pop) hoovered a measly $7 bucks out of my wallet.

Magic Spot Grill is your basic Mom&Pop resto owned by a Greek family who are behind the counter. Ok, here comes the part where I date myself. Way back in the day, one of the original SNL skits was the Cheeseburger joint skit with the "cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger chips" hilarity going on. This is the Magic Spot Grill and it literally sent me into flashback mode. Peter, the grill man, has tons of banter going on with the customers. You order a steak on a bun and he'll yell out at you "ya wanna steak on a bun or a bun on a steak!". When he called me out for the toppings on my burger he squinted his eyes at me and said "I don't know your face. I haven't seen you here before. This your first time here?" And then he proceeded to say "You want cheese on your burger or burger on your cheese?" followed by an outbreak of laughter from him. I kept wondering when John Belushi and Danny Aykroyd where going to pop up from behind the counter.

The burger is very similar to those I've had at Apache Burgers. The patties aren't the homemade styled patties like Craft Burger but surprisingly have a decent taste and are as large as the bun itself. The bun was one of the freshest I've had in ages at a burger place. There are no 32 toppings to choose from. Toppings are standard, nothing fancy or gourmet about this spot at all. Fries are what they are, frozen McCain styled, but they are plentiful and well cooked. I ate in and my food came on a plate and the burger was left open faced.

Oh by the way there is a Magic Burger on the menu. It is a 6 ounce patty with cheese, a fried egg and topped with a couple of onion rings. Pass the beta blockers please. While I might not venture back in to the MSG (isn't that a funny acronym for this spot :) for a burger I'd definitely consider their all day brekkie (three eggs, a pile of bacon and an even larger pile of home fries) or one of their big fat Greek salads spilling over with feta, spanich onions and olives.
