I don't eat donairs that often, but when I do it's gotta be Famous. They have the best donairs in the area. I'm not going there for fine-dining so the atmosphere is just fine. It's clean, friendly, and good food. Even though I only go a couple of times a year, Robbie remembers me.

The best donairs around, great service. I call in my order ahead because the teens eat two each! Love the garlic sauce but the sweet sauce is great too!

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.

The secret to being successful is to identify what you do well, and focus on that strength. That axiom is applied to its fullest extent at Famous Donair. 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
