Whatever you guys do, stay away from Roadrunner Donair on 132 avenue just east of 66 street. Gross!

Always thought Charles Smarts or whatever it's called on Whyte has some fantastic donairs.

I didn't bother to read through the last 6 pages, but the BEST donair is from Famous Donair in Sherwood Park. The guy that owns it (Robbie) makes all his own sauces and spices the meat himself. His donairs are a work of art. If any of you are in that area and want an amazing donair just go down broadmoar blvd, its in the little strip mall by pizza 73.

Honorable mention to Maina's Donair in Beaumont.

Agreed - no one makes donairs like KoD!

I've actually thought about trying to start up a KoD franchise out here just to have another one.

Its odd that I've heard this specific comment more than once but the two times I tried it their Donairs definitely fit into the small, thin, pretty substandard category. I tried it twice just to get a second impression and both times within last couple years. Not sure whats up with that.

If in Millwoods THIS is the place:

I had my first ever there.. and I honestly felt like I was going to die after it. Went on a walk, because I couldn't run , that was a good 2 hours long, and still felt like I'd just eaten more food than should be consumed by a normal human being.

Good times.

You must have discovered the "large" as well and "want some cheese melted in" on that
They're always very friendly there always calling you "friend" and stuffing that donair beyond reason but....

yeah, I know what you mean.

The after buffet feeling. All had for the price of a donair.

For eating lettuce and oily fish I do plan to reward myself with a donair for my birthday, but until then, hope you'll all be thinking of me when you sink into a delicious donair.
--------------Mature Post Warning!!!!!!!!!1-----------------------------

At the risk of being banned from this site for inappropriate posting I have to share a related story. I am a Nova Scotia boy and my roomie from university married an Ontario girl. Donairs were our diet through pharmacy school and, when, at the ripe age of 25 my buddy got his cholesterol checked he posted a less than steller 6.7.

As newlyweds, his darling wife was very concerned about his health and well being and she offered him an incentive. If she performed on him 40 nights in a row, he vowed to give up donairs for life. After 34 days of she finally threw in the towel. Jeff and I went out for donairs to celebrate!! Lipitor 10mg will accomplish the same things anyway.

So if your wife/girlfriend cares about you I suggest you make that offer...

Anyway, I'm shocked more Haligonians haven't jumped in on this post. As BBB mentioned, Halifax is the home of the donair. The shop owner is the key. Our neighbourhood shop was Tony's on the corner of Robie and Cunard (at the Commons). Family run and just the perfect donair.

It also must be pointed out that donairs do not come with anything but meat, sauce, tomatoes and onions. If you are offered any other toppings, the appropriate response should always be "**** you, I asked for a donair. Donairs do not have ****ing lettuce. They don't have carrots or pickles or any goddamned honey-dill glaze. Bee-atch!"

Yeah, probably about 1/4. Didn't expect them to be that big, but certainly can't complain.

I should start getting commissions for that place. Words getting out.

I mention them here everytime thread resurfaces.

I like the way they stir fry up the ingredients too before stuffing. Great touch. Many places don't do that.
