alright dawgs, the best donair is at quick donair on argyll by the arby's sign (66th street)...they load it on and its freakin massive...try the mixed meat donair...they also have donair subs!...turkish donair/falafel house on whyte was good as well, but after new ownership i never went back...so i'm not sure about that one anymore...

somebody mentioned mama's donair at wested...i seriously felt like puking after one bit of that...

The last donair I had was at Castrol Raceway, in fact I had two of them. I think they are the Mr Sub version.

I'm still a fan of Charles Smart, they're my favourite but the one in Sherwood Park is pretty damn good also.

Speaking of Turkish, there is absolutely nothing quite like having a donair in that country. So fresh, so well spiced, so perfect.

Okay. Strike New York Pizza & Donair off the list. I feel gross for having just ate that. I work nights just now, so there's not a lot of choice ad 4 in the morning. Anyway, I wanted pizza and thought I'd try the donair as well, so I got a combo thing. The donair had way too much melted globby cheese, and the sauce was sweet but not right. Too thick and just not quite right. Onions were great, but who judges a donair on the onions? They were going to charge me extra to put hot peppers on it too. I certainly won't order a donair there again.

Maybe you could inspire us all with a tale of the best donair you ever had, BBB? Give us something to hold all future donairs to?

Yea, I think it's called "Homestyle Donairs and Subs" or something like that. Their large donairs are HUUUUGE and are DELICIOUS. You have the option of tzaziki sauce or sweet sauce...I choose sweet sauce of course.
The owner is a real nice guy too.

There's also Quick Donair on Argyll and 75st...by the Petro Canada/BP's. They're so good! If you're downtown, there's a donair/pizza place across the street from The Bounce that's really good as well.

I LOVE DONAIRS

Can anyone fine me döner in Winnipeg? Manitoba? Heck, Western Ontario?

Not only would I go, but it would be a treat for my sister and mother who have more attachment to our ethnic origins (Turkish) than I do... taking them there could even be considered a good deed, and everyone likes a good ol' fashioned good deed!

Well. I have updates...

I have been to Souvlaki Express in City Centre Mall, and Charles Smart on Whyte, in the last week.

Souvlaki express was alright. It wasn't all that big- I don't remember different size options. the meat was pretty spiced which was good, but it wasn't spectacular over all.

Charles Smart, I was very disappointed with. It was bland and the sweet sauce wasn't vinagery enough. The meat was really dry, not really spiced, and had a texture that was... Hmm. I can only think of one analogy. Think of well done roast beef. Now think of that roast beef, pre-chewed. It was soft and really not all that appealing. Yeah, so I won't go back there. I really didn't like it at all.

Does anyone know why all Donair places seem to be named after men's names? It's odd.

You're kind of big and hairy, Shane, but your dedication to the cause is an inspiration to young donair eaters EVERYWHERE.

5 a.m and im craving a donair, damn you all

I'm no donair connoisseur by any means, but I LOVE the Columbus super donair. Everytime I get the craving I order up delivery.

I think ill have to expand a little based on this thread.

Just to add, the Souvlaki express at Kingsway is, for some reason, alot better than the one at city centre mall.

Darn, who brought up this thread again? I just reread the whole thing and now I am starting to have chest pains. We need a defib cart on standby.

I thought I had posted it before, but it must have been in another donair thread. I stand by "J's" in Spruce Grove with my admittedly limited donair testing experience. The guy who owns the place (J?) is the only person I have ever seen working there. He is open until 4 AM on weekends, and is closed on Sunday to sleep.

You have a choice of sweet or something else I can't pronounce or spell sauce, and he has a bunch of peppers, etc., that you can add if you want. He has also has a decent ice cream/frozen yogurt section to fill in any parts of your arteries that are still open.

It is in the strip mall on the NW corner of 16A & Calahoo Road in Spruce Grove, right next to Little Ceaser's Pizza.

Tzatziki sauce you're probably referring to:

Incidently, we have a poutine smilie. I wonder if we can get a donair smilie too. Maybe we need to hit 30 pages with this thread too?
