I go to WS quite often, one of my wife's favorites and my kids enjoy pirate paks. My wife ordered a mac and cheese burger and i got fish tacos. She absolutely loved the burger. Looks like they got their burgers down. My fish tacos left more to be desired. There is nothing I could point my finger to and say this was bad. It was just the over all quality of the dish. When you walk out of there you feel somewhat ripped off. I know I can do fish tacos myself better than this Maple Ridge location did it. I know WS does burgers, breakfast and the usual fair pretty well. I think the price of burgers is a little on the high side, but it's alright. Now I am somewhat of a home chef/foodie. I like to research recipes and make my own things at home. When I eat at certain establishments I find I am disappointed quite often. It's like this chef/ cook who prepared this meal for me does not have the same standards as I do. I guess that is why I am usually disappointed at most restaurants. I don't like to be the guy who only writes reveiws when he has a bad experience. I like to be totally fair and unbiased. If it's good I'll tell you so. So white spot in general is great for burgers, fries and breakfast. But it's hit and miss on other menu items.
Service was good overall.
I was at a business breakfast at WS and I have to say it was not the best ever dining experience. Service was awful, and at one point I actually had to go to the back to hunt for the server. Despite the fact that the place was nearly empty, the kitchen was slow too. I had eggs benny, which featured dry overcooked hash browns and a tasteless sauce over undercooked eggs on stale English muffin halves. Even ketchup couldn’t save it. The coffee was similarly dismal, and in the morning you need a decent cuppa joe. The price was similar to other breakfast places in the area, and I will say the place was clean. That said, the poor food and service convinced me to stay away next time I am looking for a meal.
It's been at least a decade since we last visited a White Spot. No particular reason, there are just so many other restaurants to try. But we were very hungry after a long sunny afternoon exploring the Pitt dykes and WS was the first non-Chinese/Sushi place we saw so we stopped in. They chose to seat us at a table surrounded by babies and kids for some reason but they were remarkably quiet so we could still chat comfortably. WS was having their burger extravaganza and we both decide to try their peanut butter/jalepeno/bacon burger which they promised was exotic and delicious. Came with the usual coleslaw and their Signature Delta-origin never-ending french fries which must make the local potatoe farmers proud because WS does do fries well. The burger was fine although the peanut butter didn't really appeal to either of us...tasted satay-like which was a bit odd for a burger. I remember WS always had great burger buns, almost brioche-like with a soft crumb and a tender crust that had a nice "bite" and it seems the buns have changed...not bad, just not what I remember. Overall the meal was fine, nothing special. Service was quietly competent and the tab was $36 with tip and a bottomless ice tea.
Ok. How anyone... ie. the 2 reviews below can say anything more than "desent" when referring the Whitey is an amazement to me.
White spot are baskets away from being Red Robin and cardboard boxes away from being Mcds. The food is horrible. They pile the mayo onto everything. They cook up greasy fries and have very over priced salads and sandwiches.
for the amount you are all paying atleast go to Earles or Cactus Club - at least they take a little bit of pride in their food.
The food is pretty average. If you aren't a huge fan of burgers then you won't really like this place, as the rest of the menu isn't all that great. I've been here quite a few times because my boyfriend loves this place... honestly, it's okay. It's just your average American food, nothing special. I usually just end up getting Quesadillas which are okay, it's hard to mess up those. The salads I think are wayy too overpriced. More then the burgers usually, which I find odd. The service is good though, I've never had to wait long.
However, there was one experience I had that disappointed me when I did decide to order something different. I got the terryaki bowl and it was really awful. There was WAYYY too much sauce, the rice ended up being soggy. There wasn't much chicken in it at all, so in the end all I had was soggy rice with vegetables. This is why I'm so disappointed in this place. The only thing they're really good at is making burgers!!!
We went to the MR White Spot and got weak service and they mixed up our order, which happens as we are all humans and subject to making mistakes. The overall experience and food was disappointing but maybe others enjoyed it. Nat Bailey started up the business and his standards are sometimes missed as we experienced similar in a Burnaby location years ago.
My husband and I really enjoy eating at a nice restaurant and I will admit we are picky.
We have gone to White spot so many times that the waitresses are getting to know us personnally and they seem to always know what we want and they are always warm and welcoming and the food is always great. If you ever have a problem with the food, they are more than willing to take some money off your bill to make you happy and make sure you return to there restaurant.
They are closing from March 25 to April 4 for renovations. So we are looking forward to them opening again.
