Serving Our Best SmashBurgers

In 2021, Chef Chris and Kris Pearson’s dream transformed into reality when they launched Pearson Street Smashburgers N’ Melts. What started as a humble mobile kitchen quickly became a local sensation, bagging Ottawa’s Best Burger title in its debut year. With a commitment to quality, innovation, and community, we’re proud to serve up joy in every bite.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Pearson Smash Burger. Had a yummy lunch with my daughter and our dogs. The only drawback were the unsupervised children who made it difficult for us to enjoy our food as they kept distracting our pups.
Good tasty burger
