It's about the fries and gravy!

This Brampton tradition is famous for one thing: fries and gravy! Of course I also order a double burger with cheese and LOAD it with fried onions - something not often found at most burger joints. But the fries, and particularly the gravy, is legendary. The gravy is rich and flavorful. Adding... read more

Just went to order at Sonny's for the first time and the food was extremely underwhelming. We got a poutine their gravy was in chunks because it was old and overcooked. I order the veal sandwich there was only bread and I guess they forgot to put the veal in between it. And to my hubby got a hamburger. And... More

If you're looking for the BEST burger and pulled pork poutine in the west end - you just found it. The toppings are perfect on a juicy cooked to perfection patty. The poutine offers mounds of cheesy goodness and the fries are crispy and season very well. You gotta try this place!

Not a restaurant. A few picnic tables outside, it's really just a fry shack. Burgers are crap. The only place open when bars let out. Very mediocre at best.

For what it is, you would be hard pressed to find better. Awesome burgers, fantastic fries, incredible poutine and wonderful onion rings. There is a very good reason Sonny's has stood the test of time and why so many people have loved this place for so many years.

This place has been here for many ears. It's not fancy. There are some picnic tables outside, none inside. But for those of you that want a good old fashion burger and some great fries, your in for a treat. If you are not worried about cholesterol, the pouting is yummy. The fries are big enough to share between two... More

Every time I go there it's worse and worse. This time the fries were stale as if they were refried. The meat Patty dried up and not juicy and the bun as if they took it from under a brick. Not going there again. Ever again.

Love this place. Great burgers! Open late so great for a late night munch. No place to sit really (outside) but this is moreof a grab and go type of establishment. Love the food. What 's on your cheese please?
