Not what it once was, but still a funky institution. The burgers are frozen. but the fries are OK. You do meet the most interesting people there at about 2 AM, however.

The best charcoal broiled food in town..Try the onion rings, poutine, and not to forget Banquet burger and amazing fish and chips...Fries served without salt (that's the only dislike)

Excellent fast food with a unique and distinctive flavor. Although the outdoor seating area was a little worn down, the food definitely made up for it.

I have been here 3 times already since going for the first time a couple weeks back. Can't believe I didn't find this sooner. One of those Gems that long time locals know about. Service was good and the food was amazing. Perfect greasy burger joint. Burgers were fantastic, veggie burger is great, fries, onion rings... all great. No complaints!... More

I have been going of Sonny's for just over 10 yrs now. Good Burgers, Steak on a bun. Fries are fresh cut. Better the corporate places, buy nothing special. Clean, friendly service. Take out only.

An old standard here in Brampton which we have visited time and again over the years. Best fries bar none! Always hot and fresh. Burgers are not the usual fast-food variety. Usually pretty busy, but staff manage to keep things moving at a fairly swift pace. Portions are large and quite filling. Pleasant place to sit outside on warm evenings.
