Harry's Drive-In is a Scarborough staple that's been in business since 1954. Located at the northwest corner of Kennedy and Lawrence, the burger and souvlaki shack is a small retro looking diner that ironically doesn't feature a drive-in. It is, however, a drive-up, situated in a can't miss location with parking spaces all around it.

The four-person crew greets us warmly when we enter at 6:30pm on a weekday night. We place our order and wait at the stools by the front window. Most customers opt for take-out or sit at one of the four tables outside. In five minutes, our food is ready and we're ready to eat.

The homemade burger ($4.10) is perfectly cooked but the bun-to-meat ratio is a little off with a bit too much bun. Maybe it's personal preference, but I also feel it would taste much better toasted.

The fries, poutine, and onion rings are made-to-order and are hot and crispy. The use of cheddar cheese on the poutine ($4.25) is intriguing (and non-traditional) but it results in overpowering the high-school cafeteria quality gravy making the dish more miss than hit.

As far as sides go, the definite thing to order here are the homemade onion rings ($2.95). Served hot with crunchy batter these are the onion rings dreams are made of, albeit a very greasy dream.

For drinks, Harry's whips up traditional vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry milkshakes ($3.40). The strawberry milkshake pairs well with the greasy food even if it's a bit on the watery side. On the upside, the viscosity of the milkshake doesn't compromise the taste.

Harry's Drive-In is exactly what it looks like - a neighbourhood joint that offers locals authentic fast food at a reasonable price.
