Whenever my husband and son need a donair fix, they go to Famous Donair. I just went again yesterday with my eleven year old for my "once in a while donair" and was again pleased. Robbie is on vacation right now, and his nephew is running the business. Such friendly service, and the nephew even recognized my son and said... More

We have been going here for years. My husband has been on a first-name basis with the owner, Rob, since then. Rob is super friendly and remembers everyone's orders. And he makes a mean donair! Seriously, these are the best around. And Rob keeps the place very clean too. I think it's good value as well.

Tried this place with my son and was not impressed at all. Maybe I expected something excellent based on the name of the place but was very disappointed with the size and cost. In comparison to other places within walking distance I wouldn't go back. The service was good and cheerful though.

This little storefron locaiton makes a great donair, period. I've tried other donair places, none compare for value, taste and service. My highest recommendation. I also know that the owner is a...

Famous donair has the best donairs, PERIOD. Not to mention Rahbi's ability to make you feel like your his friend within seconds. I could eat these donairs all day everyday. Go try it out ASAP!!

I feel like I'm an oddity here but it's my experience. The donair was very reasonably priced, not cheap with the sauce like some donair places. BUT the meat was GREASY and did not taste like it was good quality. They do not cook it like the typical donair. They don't take visa and if you don't pay cash you... More

My family and I have eaten at Robbie's Famous Doanir since the first day he opened for buisness and truly I have never been disappointed. Friendly conversation and his home made (secret) donair suaces are superb!!!!!!! When in Sherwood Park a must!!!!!

You couldn't ask for better food, atmosphere, or price. Robbie is the best at what he does. I never have to tell him what I want, he always remembers. I've been going there for 9 years and I've never had a bad donair. Love this place :)

The best service,great staff and the leanest donairs. Well worth the short trip from Edmonton. When I'm back in town, I will be going back.

I love this place! The food is so delicious and Robbie's friendly way about him makes it a great experience. I would reccommend this place to anyone looking for a hidden gem.
