Our Story

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.

Our Mission

At Pearson Street, we’re all about creating mouth-watering burgers, cheese melts, poutines, and fresh-cut French fries that go beyond the ordinary. Our secret? Fresh, high-quality ingredients straight from local farm, and a sprinkle of love in every dish. Dive into a dining experience where food meets artistry, and leave with memories that last a lifetime.
