  • Ive been going to Sonnys since 1976 and when I left Brampton in 1990 I always looked forward to my return visits But the last few years since the fire and the retirement of the original owners has left me disappointed.
    The fries are lousy (used to be the best) there not home made anymore as I witnessed the owner bringing them in from his car.
    All original customers remember watching the process of the fries being cut and blanched as we waited for our orders during afternoon visits oh those days are gone now I wont be back!
    No reason unless they start doing the fries the old way(the machine is still in the back)

  • I been eating sonnys since I was a pup!! It use to be the landmark of brampton. The king of all food in brampton! But not anymore. I will never forget when sonnys had a big fire years ago and the whole town went into panic! Then they made there big come back! And it was a short rein. This use to be the best french fries in the world hands down. Now they taste like a cheap downgraded pree blanched potato. A lot of these places think half cooking there fries and throwing them in for a minute b4 order is the same thing as cooking them fresh but its not! They now have the chalky partially undercooked frozen taste and anyone who's been eating here for a while can tell. I know sonnys has a hudge volume of business for the small space their in but I believe this ruiend them. I never been big on their burgers I find them basic. They taste like harveys 2 me. The Former champtions of the world. Sonn's RIP

  • Sonny's has great food. A Brampton icon with entertainment value. A great place to go after the bar on a Friday or Saturday night. The staff love to dole out lewd comments to the pretty ladies in line while they are preparing their food. Usually always something to see while you are there-hookers and pimps, drunks staggering to their cars with food in hand, drug dealers and my personal fave-drunks puking into the garbage cans outside by the picnic tables while others are trying to enjoy their food. Bottom line is Sonny's will never let you down in the food or entertainment department.

  • How hard is it to cook a decent burger, heat up a bun on the grill, and make crispy fries? Obviously impossible if you're the line cook at sonny's. Just absolutely awful. Perfect restaurant for the uninformed and inebriated.

  • This is one of the best places for a burger in Brampton. Yes, it is $$$ for food there, but worth every penny. I say you get what you pay for. Portions are great, and the only bad thing I can say about them is they only take cash and no Interac.

  • Order: Burger, fries, gravy and a drink.

  • After hearing so many rave reviews of this popular Brampton spot I had to check it out for myself. Being a lover of chicken I went for the chicken fingers and fries. The portions are absolutely huge, way too much for one person. Its not really food you can save so I find this wasteful, but if you share its definitely a good bargain. The chicken fingers were delicious but I expected better from the fries. I hear constant raves about the poutine in particular so I had expected way better fries, maybe the ones I got were just a bad batch. Either way this joint is definitely worth the visit. That said while I get that its a drive in I actually don't care much for the eating in my parked car aspect of the place.

  • Order: Chicken fingers and fries.

  • The ownership has changed from the Greek couple that owned it with his brother in-law and wife for over 20 years. Food brings me back to 1960's when a hamburger combo(fries and pop) cost $0.80...The inside hasn't changed that much...I had(June,5th.2011 at 18:55hrs) a cheese burger/fries & gravy YUMMMM and pop. BEST IN BRAMPTON the fried onions on my burger made my day..Drove from Milton just for a Sonny's....

  • Order: Cheese Burger/Fries&Gravy and Pop

  • Everything you get at sonnys is amazing. Since its open until 4am theres always a rush around 2am of all the drunks coming in to grab their cravings. Everything is a large portion, when I order a burger its the only thing I can eat - I don't even attempt to order fries or rings to go with. If you've grown up in Bramption then you'll know that Sonny's is a part of its heritage. Summer nights wouldn't be summer nights without a walk to Sonny's. WOO HOO

  • Order: banquet burger, poutine, onion rings, fish and chips, veal sandwich

  • Sonny's is a Bram-Bram institution. Good burgers and good fries. Simple but good. Don't expect haute cuisine or anything frou-frou. You're here for a burger and a burger is what you'll get. The food is reminiscent of better times when guys in clown make up didn't sell burgers in this town. After hours the place comes alive despite the fast food chain choices that abound including the Taco Hell next door.

  • Order: burger, cheeseburger, fries, onion rings
