2280 Lawrence Ave E, Scarborough, ON M1P 2P9
Ever since the 1960s, Harry’s Drive-In has been a staple fast food restaurant in the Scarborough neighborhood serving up a classic diner menu. Located by Lawrence Ave and Kennedy Road (at 2280 Lawrence Ave E), this mom-and-pop shop is best known by its customers for their delicious, juicy, homemade burgers and Greek-style dishes.
Among their menu, expect traditional grill favourites like hot dogs, cheeseburgers, bacon burgers, poutine, chicken fingers, French fries, freshly battered onion rings, and of course milkshakes!
What is not compromised at Harry’s is the quality and freshness of its food, making their meals well worth the price. The popular Homemade Burger is made in-house, grilled to-order, and assembled right in front of your eyes with the cafeteria-like display of fresh toppings. You truly can’t go wrong with this burger combo to satisfy a craving.
Another go-to favourite is their Souvlaki Dinner Plates (available in pork or chicken) that are served alongside salad and rice or fries. These dinner plates are known for their tender, moist meats, and fresh salad graciously topped with copious amounts of feta cheese!
If you’re looking for comfort food with a hint of nostalgia, Harry’s Drive-In meets the mark. With their retro signage and old-school counter service, this burger joint stands out among all the gourmet burger chains out there. Not only has Harry’s stood the test of time – they also keep their menu down to the good ol’ classics (aka the toppings that really matter).
While not actually a drive-in, Harry’s offers takeout and has ample outdoor seating for the warmer months ahead. They are also available on delivery apps such as UberEats.
At a time when there is a strong focus to support local, Harry’s Drive-In is the perfect family-owned, small business to pick up a tasty meal and experience what has been decades worth of old-fashioned diner favourites. The staff is always super welcoming and friendly and meals are reasonably priced with filling portions. You can never be disappointed with a shake, burger, and fries from Harry’s!
