I loved sonny's previously but this last visit was horrible. The onion rings were left from previous deep fry and re fried they were so hard we could not eat them.The chicken nuggets were awful the milk shake was great

We are temporarily staying in the area due to a house fire. Never been to Sonny's in my life. We needed a quick lunch so went there. The food was very fresh, nice and hot and it did not make me feel ill like most burger fast food places. My new favourite burger place! The whole family loved it. How... More

This place is a landmark in Waterloo, Been going here since I was a teenager, great food after a few beers! They change oil regularly so the fries and onion rings always are tasty, burgers, hot dogs, sausage are great, but their fish and chips are exceptional.

Since the recent full takeover with a new owner, the hamburger I tried and failed to eat tonight was a vile tasting amalgamation of who knows what blend of meats comprised that patty. In my opinion, this patty was... More

Sonny's was our go-to burger joint when we were university students some forty years ago - open very late and always great food at fair prices. Our recent visit there was great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed our burgers and fries. We plan to make this a regular stop once again. Interesting menu and food prepared as you order.

Sonny's has been around for years and when Paul took it over, nothing changed. The burgers are great, good fries but the Fish and Chips are out of this world. Tasty, nice coating and priced very fairly. The box they put the fries in is so filled with fries they have to set the fish on top. Not many burger... More
