You can't go wrong with nachos & beer! I came here with friends and we got their king nachos and pitcher of beer deal which was great value. The services was good and we ended up staying for many more pitchers. They had a good vegetarian selection for one of my friends as well. Would definitely come back.

The first time I experienced Sneaky Dees was on a thirsty evening in 1990. Through the years I have experienced the joy of food, and atmosphere. Late night Fajitas, and early morning breakfasts have saved my butt. Toilet score 4-10. If you are tall watch your head.

The nachos are HUGE and are also fantastic. They will definitely be enough for two people!! The service was great and the drinks were good. The atmosphere is laid back and that of a music club/bar. Funky walls filled with posters and graffiti. Good music playing, I think they have shows upstairs.

Visited the place because of good reviews but think it's definitely overrated. Nothing special, but okay to hang out for one drink.

Certainly worth visiting for a beer and nachos. Authentic slice of Toronto living, in a place with a fantastic atmosphere. Breakfast is great too.

We went for Sunday brunch, it is served until 4pm. Food was delicious and the servings are huge. You can sit and read the graffiti for hours. Service was very good. I had the Texas Egg which was a tortilla bowl filled with vegetable chilli topped with cheese and an egg. I thought I would try something different and so... More

Sneaky Dee's touts itself as a Mexican restaurant, but is really a restaurant that happens to serve Tex Mex finger food . I've been going to Sneaky Dee's for 20 years, and like it very much. The food is generally pretty good, and always served in generous portions. When I'm in Toronto, I eat multiple meals here because it is... More

Horrible! Washrooms were disgusting! They mixed up our drinks when they moved our table. Nachos were average

Better food and better music just a few years back... ok this is no restaurant but most likely a glorified tex-mex pub food and bar. We were there last weekend and there were a few flops that I couldn't keep in the dark. First, if you will serve tex-mex food, you got to make sure you will have guacamole all... More

Friendly staff, great food at reasonable prices. Within walking distance of a lot of Toronto's attractions, and public transport in all directions for places farther away. Loved it!

Staying in Little Italy

Neighborhood Profile
Little Italy
Toronto's Little Italy is a city hotspot for cafe culture and nightlife. There's something for everyone in Little Italy, apparent from the cross-section of clubbers in glitzy dresses, and elderly couples arm-in-arm heading to their favorite wine or pasta spot. Cafes spill onto the wide sidewalks, pool lounges and bars are always teeming with noise and activity, and both outdoor and indoor marketplaces are packed with fresh fish, cured meats, and pungent cheeses. All of the activity makes it a perfect spot for people-watching, especially over a nice glass of red wine or a quick and sumptuous slice of pizza at one of the many eateries or trattorias in the area.
