This place is great. Very unique, with an old Toronto, vintage, homey feel. The people were very friendly and welcoming. A nice place to go with friends. I ordered The Big Kevorkian and it was probably one of best burgers I had. Definitely will be coming back for more.

Was expecting the "you gotta eat here" experience and was sooooo wrong. We had a burger, fries, onion rings and wings. Chicken. Wings still had remnants of the feathers on them, sauce was awful, rendering them inedible. The onion rings were over greasy, fries were ok, burger meh I have cooked far superior at home. Overall, not a great visit... More

Nothing subtle about this classic burger & diner menu, with portions that are justifiably famous for the sheer heft and volume of each item. Come hungry - better yet with friends - but also come expecting quality, not just quantity...

The place is a bit of a dive, but the food is pretty good! I had the "Big Cheese" burger, which was very good. The fries, on the other hand, were a bit of a disappointment - overcooked and no seasoning. I definitely recommend the "Elvis Shake".

After eating at a local restaurant close by, we ventured out on a stroll to find a place for coffee and dessert. Dangerous Dans fit the bill! The diner is very retro and some of the seats are from old cars. The decor was great and some of the signs are hilarious! You order at the front (even if you... More

We stopped because of the hype we have heard about this place. Cute décor and t-shirts. Fan over the grill needs a bit more power since the place was filled with smoke. I'm all for following Canada's burger law of cooking the meat to well done however there was such a flame going on the grill the whole burger was... More

Eating low carb in Toronto is hard. So much pasta and pizza. So on my last lazy night, needing take out or delivery, we got the Double D's. Double order of wings, a burger that I ate with no bun and an amazing deep fried pickle wrapped in bacon. So much flavour, I don't need the bun! It's really good... More

Dangerous for your health maybe. But that is the reason Id go there again. The burgers had that genuine charcoal grill taste. The salad was fine and the perogies good. My Guests really enjoyed their burgers. Onion rings looked amazing! Yes it's a dump but on purpose. Some of the staff grumpy, some very very friendly,. .Hey! Its a burger... More

Being in town for a week staying down the street I walked straight by this place at first because it's not much to look at and it was empty. But my past experience with sketchy burger joints in Toronto convinced me to give it a try when I walked by and there were other customers. The burger was delicious. Damn... More

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
