DD is pretty scary to look at, the decor makes you wonder if you should even eat the food. It is dirty and unkept. The owner is rude and crass, and has no customer service skills to speak. It always makes me uncomfortable when an owner berates an employee publicly, which is what the owner did the last time I... More

Just as the name suggest Dangerous, dangerous for your health as the tables are filthy, the burgers were very greasy. The chairs are dirty old car seats that nobody ever cleans after a customer leaves as there is no table service. The guy behind the cash register is rude, sarcastic and impatient. He probably thinks he was funny and cool... More

We came here to try a new burger joint. But this is what greeted us: "We don't have people serving tables here. You get the menu at the front, you order and choose a table." We still ordered but we were scared to even ask for anything else because the guy behind the counter was curt and had no people... More

Dangerous Dan's make the best burgers I have ever had. The atmosphere is original and you will have more food that you can handle for an amazing price. We had big meals and 4 beers and the bill was $52 with tip. The pulled pork was messy and yummy!

Toronto, you are blessed. There is a plethora of high quality burger places all offering their spin on one of North America's favorite sandwiches. Dangerous Dan's pretends to be a messy, sloppy place but it is a clean little restaurant with re-purposed car seating at their spartan tables. The reason to visit is the food. The burgers are freshly made... More

Some "Torontonians" are saying that you can get the biggest Burger in town there. This was first also the reason why I had decided to go there but when I was finally there I felt not that hungry to order it. Anyway, the burgers, fries and onion rings we ordered where good. The place has a funny atmosphere and you`re... More

I've had DD's a few times times over the past 9 years or so and it was mostly because of co-workers or friends who had never tried it. Their burgers are pretty good. Unfortunately almost everything else I've tried is not. The poutine is just a mess of gravy and terrible cheese 'curds'. The Willis sandwich is okay. What turned... More

This is my idea of a diner. Edgy location, original interior, speedy service and great burgers. Coupled with good selection of local beers. This place has genuine atmospere. No frills, no nonsense...you get what you pay for with a good dose of real life thrown in.
