This is my favourite fast-food restaurant of all time. It's a crowded local joint and the first clue to the quality is the queue. There is always a line-up - cops, fireman and locals waiting to order. Square Boy has seating and is licensed - cheap bottled beer and I think there is wine on the menu, but I've never... More

I'm so happy to see Square Boy is still open. I frequented that place until about 12 years ago when I moved away. I just had a chance to stop in again and it was as good as I remember. Good simple diner food. 👍 thumbs up Square Boy.

I had the burger, fries and pop combo for $4.75. Very tasty. A decent patio on the front. Lots of locals eat here.

This restaurant is a family tradition for us. Having grown up in the area, we would occasionally get take out on a Friday night to go along with movie night. The two items we purchased were the chicken kebab on a pita (5 stars) and the cheeseburgers. The cheeseburger deal came with fries and a soda for $5.50...... Honest!!!! Delicious... More

Very delicious, perfectly grilled and succulent souvlakis on a thick, soft pita and with a garlic tzatziki sauce I could pour on everything! Wonder if they sell it by the litre? At lunch time, it's almost impossible to find parking and be prepared to wait, because the line can go out the door. But they are fast and efficient and... More

I hadn't been to square boys in over 15 years when they actually served square hamburgers. Today their basic prepared burger is under 4 oz. ( a bit thin) at $3.00, but I had a combo banquet burger, fries, canned Pepsi and a gravy for $6.05 plus .78 tax.. For heartier appetites try their home made burger ..close to 8... More

Great value. Quick service. Yummy greasy spoon Greek diner food.. And on rare occasions you may actually get a smile from the counter staff. I have the souvlaki on a pita every time I go.

I was expecting a small hamburger, but this place offers great value. I was filled with their massive banquet burger which tasted great. It was fresh and it was really cheap $5. The place has some retro seating inside and a patio outdoors. I had always passed by this place over the years since I was really young, but today... More

The souvlaki on a bun possibly the best in the city. I had the chicken it was cooked on metal skewers like it should be, it reduces cooking time by also cooking from the inside. The chicken was cut into large chunky cubes nicely seasoned with a nice crisp crust on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. The... More
