I was so excited to check this place out as it looked like it had good reviews and sounded unique. Who doesn't love a good burger and milkshake anyway!? When we walked in we were told to grab a dirty menu from the counter, which was just a used paper pamphlet. The table was dirty and the seats are so... More

We were looking for a real old fashioned burger with all the toppings and no holding back on the juiciness and fat and were told this place filled the bill. It was all talk no action, the flavor seemed to forgotten in the recipe. A major disappointment.

I have had many cheese steak sandwiches but few as good. The delivery took a while but worth the wait. That was one of the best cheese steak I ever had. Those that had the burgers enjoyed them too. We order the 20 wings but it looked more like 30.

I called to make an order they told me that they will call me back for confirmation. Never call me. I call them again to know what happened, the girl gave me a lot of attitude about me calling them she say they were on their way but i food never came

Dangerous Dan has a reputation for having over the top burgers. It is a well deserved reputation. The burger options are all over the top. They are guilty pleasures that are big enough to share. The biggest surprised was the dessert. Their fried ice cream with deep fried pineapple was delightful. The restaurant is a dive and you need to... More

Took me 6 years living in the neighbourhood and I finally tried it out at the recommendation of a friend. Doesn't look like much from the outside but it is surprisingly very good. You have to order sides to go with the burger. No Veggie options here. Would go back but probably just get take out. Not much to the... More

This place is great. Very unique, with an old Toronto, vintage, homey feel. The people were very friendly and welcoming. A nice place to go with friends. I ordered The Big Kevorkian and it was probably one of best burgers I had. Definitely will be coming back for more.

Was expecting the "you gotta eat here" experience and was sooooo wrong. We had a burger, fries, onion rings and wings. Chicken. Wings still had remnants of the feathers on them, sauce was awful, rendering them inedible. The onion rings were over greasy, fries were ok, burger meh I have cooked far superior at home. Overall, not a great visit... More

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
