One of the best donairs I've found in the Edmonton area. Basha in Leduc is probably tops, but this is right up there. Meat is not too seasoned, and the sweet sauce is nearly the same as the amazing donairs up in Fort McMurray! Price was about average too. And the staff were SUPER friendly. A large majority of the...

I love Famous Donair the owners are so great and the food is excellent. I've been going to Famous for years and never go anywhere else!!! Seriously you have to try the donair poutine, real cheese curds, donair meat, real gravy and sweet sauce, it's epic!! You can thank me later :) The owners are so friendly!! Best DONAIR!!

I have to admit I was weary when the uncle past the torch down. But the service and the donairs are still excellent. Ive been to many different donair shops throughout BC & Alberta nothing compares :)

I must admit. I've been sceptical. If indeed they don't keep regular hours...phone ahead. Just induged in a Super Donair after reading all the positive reviews. I've eaten here a few times in the last few years. I think because on my first visit I watched the chef pull the meat from a tray...and not off the spigot...I was turned... More

Perfectly spicy meat, sweet tangy sauce and an excellent, fresh Pita bread. These Donairs are the best that I have ever had. Great friendly service and a comfortable, clean Cafe style location. This place is a consistently great Donair spot and famous around Edmonton and Sherwood Park. Forget the rest, this place is the best Donairs!

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
