First visit burned my face off! Lol The lady asked me which hot sauce I’d like. She warned hot is really hot. Well this hot is as hot as hell! Lol my mouth burned for 45 minutes. I’m not exaggerating. By far the hottest hot...sauce I’ve had in my life and I usually don’t complain. You don’t have to put any hot sauce on I just thought it was funny to mention. Excellent donair! Highly recommend this place! Very good donair at this busy spot.More

We have been coming here for years whenever we visit Burlington but since Covid we have tried to go in twice and each time none of the staff in the restaurant which is open through the kitchen are wearing masks. Not sure why thought it...was a Health Order that you had to but they aren't so until all of this is over we will have to wait for our Donair fix.More

This is my favourite style of Donair, sauce is much tasteier than the 'Halifax; version. And Sammy's tabbouli is one of the best as well.

I have been going for donairs at this resturant since i could eat solids. We have been eating at sammys for over likely 40+ yrs now. Family owned and fabulous service. The donairs that Sammy and his family make out shine Halifax and other donair...places. We will go here always.More

Small donair for the price of a large food item anywhere else. For the price of an entire large pizza you should at least be satisfied, but unfortunately not the case here, anymore. You're better off eating at any other donair, pita, pizza or burrito...place. They microwave the meat and under serve you a minuscule portion. $10.50 for a small pita any grown man could eat two of. Just had one and will have to go back out for something else. SadMore

Sammy's is a nice little Donair restaurant with excellent chicken shwarma. They have a hot sauce that is really hot, too hot for me!!! I take the medium sauce now and love it!

You can't go wrong with their tasty, messy, filing donairs. Very quick, very good. This is fast food with a difference. Lots of tasty choices and service is very personal.

I went for the first time a month ago, ate it and enjoyed my donair at 6pm. The other night I drove past at 9:45pm, they close at 10. They did reheat the meat in the microwave and kind of slapped together my donair. I...got takeout. I didn't enjoy it as much, I don't know if it was because it was takeout or if it was not quite the same as getting an order during their busy time.More

The service was fast because there was only 1 other patron in the place. HOWEVER The meat was microwaved in a plastic bowl, then drowned in white sauce which tasted like processed cheese mixed with sugar, on a pita that didn't even wrap the whole...way round. The tomato bits and onions seemed fresh enough though. Oh and there was a goodly enough number of napkins considering the sea of sauce.More
