Great food, great prices!

The Chicken Quesadilla had really nice quality chicken, great cheese, served with green onion, lettuce, sour cream & salsa. It was the perfect size for lunch. The Boss had the Bean Soup and said it was very tasty, and the Pastrami on Rye. I've also had the Club House Sandwich and it was excellent! Love that place!! ;)
Fanciest Lunch Ever!!
Submitted Sunday, January 27, 2013 - 12:02pm [Dine in]
I ordered the Chicken Florentine - 8oz Chicken Breast stuffed with Spinach, Goat Cheese and Bacon, finished with a warm Sun Dried Tomato Cream, with Market Fresh Vegetables and Pave au Gratin (potatoes)....SO DELICIOUS and so beautifully presented!! It was a little extravagant for lunch, I know, but we had the Groupon so it wasn't much out of pocket! The Boss had the Cheese Burger with Fresh Cut Fries and Chipotle Mayo for dipping!! He said the burger was good, the bun was perfect and the Fries and Dip were fabulous!! (I got to try them and I agree!) Its pricey in there but the food is so good!! Great service too! I'll definitely be going back!!
Falafel Wrap was Hummazing!!
Submitted Sunday, January 27, 2013 - 11:50am [Dine in]
I've never had falafel before, and I'm so glad I tried it. I ordered the Hummazing Wrap with Falafel.....really fresh whole wheat pita with 3 heaping spoonfuls of traditional hummus, garlic sauce, lettuce, tomato, red onion, green pepper, house sauce and baked falafel.....incredibly delicious and the sandwich is really big, I couldn't even finish!!! The daughter had the Hummazing Chicken Wrap and really liked hers as well!! Can't wait to go back!
I'm going back for the Maple Pulled Pork Sandwich
Submitted Thursday, January 3, 2013 - 6:20am [Dine in]
I was looking for a restaurant open for lunch on New Years Day so I posted a question on Facebook and it turns out Spitfire & Firkin was open, yay!! I ordered the Grilled Vegetable and Goat Cheese Salad ("Good Choice" said the waitress, she orders it all the time). It was delicious, served with a nice Balsamic Vinaigrette. Hubby ordered the Peameal Bacon Sandwich and the bun was excellent, the bacon crispy all around, great flavour. The Daughter ordered the Maple Pulled Pork Sandwich and WOW!! It was the best pulled pork sandwich I'd ever tried. Tender meat, maple, cheese and breaded apples!! You heard me, BREADED APPLES!! Absolutely delicious!! I cannot wait to go back and order one for myself.! Kinda pricey in there, but I'll pay the price for ♥love♥
Sleeman Tasting Dinner
Submitted Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 3:53am [Dine in]
5 courses of great food & beer. Here are the highlights! The Braised Lamb Shank Stuffed Sushi Rice Globes were amazing! The wild berry salad was definitely the prettiest salad I've ever been served. The beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection and the potatoes stuffed with goat cheese were crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside! Peach & chocolate dessert, devine!!
Pulled Pork Po'boy was sweet and tender
Submitted Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 3:38am [Dine in]
I ordered the Pulled Pork Po Boy Sandwich w/ Fresh Cut Fries. It was really, really good....sweet sauce on a perfectly toasted bun. Not a lot of meat in the sandwich, but just enough for me! The fries were perfect. Hubby had the Rock & Rolla Burger, a fresh, hand packed 8oz burger topped with bbq pulled pork, homemade black bean chili, roasted red peppers, sautéed onions, melted jalapeno Havarti, drizzled with whiskey bbq sauce. Fabulous!! And the place was really busy, so people know how good it is! ;) Can't wait to go back!
Submitted Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 3:21am [Dine in]
Of course I ordered the Perogies w/ potato & cheese....they were very nice, fried to perfection with nice grilled onions.....I loved them! New Girl had the same. The Boss had the Borscht soup (which he's been dreaming about for 25 years since his last visit) and the Stuffed Red Peppers. He liked the peppers, but not enough to order them again. I'd go back, but next time I might bring my broom & dust pan....
Buffalo Chicken Sandwich was delicious!
Submitted Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 3:14am [Dine in]
I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich w/ Fresh Cut Fries......it was delicious!! Really nice quality chicken breast, lightly dusted with a southwest sauce. Just enough fresh cut fries (not a ton like other places). I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch!! Hubby had the Chili Dogs with Fresh Cut Fries and thought they could have used a few more onions, but good. Couple of Coors light. I like it there, and did you know they opened in 1878!?
Its been a week and I can't stop thinking about it!
Submitted Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 3:04am [Dine in]
I had The Ambassador - Smoked Salmon panini w/ capers, dill and cream cheese! WOW!!! ♥♥♥ Loved it!! Grilled to perfection! Served with a mixed green salad with a really nice dressing. The Boss had the Beefy (Roast beef w/ provolone and other stuff and a great horsey mayo). New Girl highly recommends The Windsor (Grilled chicken panini)....we all loved our meals, we all loved the ambiance, the prices, the service....can't wait to go back!! Seriously delicious! ;)
Pupusa, I think I love you
Submitted Friday, October 19, 2012 - 11:17pm [Dine in]
Wow!! My friends at Taster.ca recommended this restaurant to me. I noticed there was a Groupon, so I purchased it (before I read it all, and it said Pupusa was not included in the Groupon....nuts!!)....Well, The Boss and I decided to go anyway.....we walk in and there is my sister and her co-workers....apparently she's told me about this place (I don't remember), and she goes about once per week!! She recommends the Pupusa (of course!). I order the Tacos with pork. The boss orders the Enchiladas with beef. We order a Pupusa to share (and we'll pay for it!).....OMG, delicious!! So soft and yummy! Its served with coleslaw and a tomato sauce. Delish!! My tacos were good, the rice was good once I put salsa on it. I think refried beans are meant to be in taco dip. The Boss loved his enchiladas "Nailed it!"......we can't wait to go back!
That place is hoppin', even on a Wednesday...
Submitted Thursday, October 18, 2012 - 6:51am [Dine in]
The parking lot is always full, that's always a good sign. I have to say I don't normally think of going to Windsor's Penalty Box because I know its going to be super busy and I don't like crowds. My BFF from high school recommended we go and as it was a Wednesday, I thought it would likely be dead....ha ha!! I got the last spot in the parking lot! We didn't have to wait for a table, but we did have to wait for the waitress to clean it off! We both ordered the Chicken Delight (no side, as they are quite large)......it was incredible! I've had it before, but maybe only 'take out' and I have to say I enjoyed it immensely, as did she. The sauce is to die for and the food quality is excellent and a good price. Now I'm kind of looking forward to going back!!
Oh la la!!

I hadn't been since the new owners took over because the place was closed for lunch (how dare they!!), but recently they've opened up again with a great lunch menu! I had the Goat Cheese Salad Oh La La! Very fancy for a pub, let me tell you......French goat cheese grilled and served on a garden salad in a french vinaigrette. The presentation was beautiful and the flavour, OMG! Big salad too for $ 9.00. The Boss had the Curry Coconut Noodle with chicken in a creamy curry coconut sauce on chow mien. It smelled delicious and he said it was fantastic!! He ordered the lunch size (1/2 order), but accidentally got the full order. It was a lot of food, but he did a pretty good job taking her down! $ 12 for full order, $ 8 for half. The tavern used to be really dark and had only 2 or 3 tables with a big pool table in the middle.....now they've opened the place right up, tore out a wall, got rid of the pool table, added 5 or so tables, installed incredible hardwood floors and a tin ceiling, installed a garage-type door. Its bright and cheery and I'm so looking forward to going back. I hear the burgers are the best in Walkerville, so that's probably my next purchase! I encourage you to check it out! I really, really loved it!
$ 4.99 Fish Dinner on the beautiful patio!
Submitted Friday, August 3, 2012 - 5:33pm [Dine in]
I got 4 pieces of white fish (1 lg, 3 smaller) with a really nice, thin & crispy batter served with excellent fresh cut fries, awesome coleslaw (and I'm not usually a fan of coleslaw) and fresh tartar sauce. It was excellent!!! My husband had the same and enjoyed his meal as well....so did the two dudes at the next table!! We sat on the patio and its gorgeous out there, with a nice garden and hanging baskets! We took the whole family back 1 week later!
Meatloaf Sliders - So flavourful!!
Submitted Friday, August 3, 2012 - 5:19pm [Dine in]
I had the Meatloaf Sliders (3) with a side of Fingerling Potato Salad.....the sliders were AMAZING! Really flavourful with a nice bun. Topped with White Cheddar, Garlic Mustard & Slaw. The Potato Salad was fresh and tasted pretty good, but I'll likely try something else next time. My boss had the Recession Dinner which had 3 pieces of Fried Chicken & Fresh Cut Fries with Homemade Gravy....he said the chicken was crispy and juicy and he enjoyed the fries and gravy too. Personally, I think they need a lunch menu though, as prices are high for lunch and you get too much food! Gotta keep it under $ 10.00. I brought a slider and 1/2 my salad home. Looking forward to going back though!
The Dugout300 Ouellette Avenue, Suite 100, Windsor Chicken Quesadilla was good
Submitted Friday, July 6, 2012 - 5:06pm [Dine in]
Sadly, they've taken the Lettuce Wraps off the menu....mustn't have been a big seller. Anyway, I ordered the Chicken Quesadilla and it was very tasty w/ good quality ingredients. Served with Salsa and Sour Cream. Great with a cold beer. Entertaining band as well. I'd definitely go back!
Kabobgy13300 Tecumseh Road E, Windsor This place is rockin'...!!
Submitted Friday, June 22, 2012 - 4:54pm [Take-out]
We all had the Chicken Shawarma. It was DELICIOUS and very big! I couldn't finish, and although at first I was thinking it was the best Shawarma I'd ever had, I was getting sick of it by the time I passed it off to the boy. I think it was just too much....anyway, that place is rockin'.....very busy! Nice people...definitely go back soon!!
I ordered the Popeye, just not that Popeye...
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2012 - 1:39pm [Dine in]
After adventures in Lunch and every place we drove to was closed, we ended up at Bubi's Awesome Eats.....I ordered the Popeye Pita Melt, but they brought me a burger so I sent it back....then they brought me another burger and I told the waitress that I didn't order a burger, I ordered a wrap....well, apparently there is a burger also called the Popeye so our waitress thought that's what I wanted. She did offer to get me something else, but everyone else was already eating so I kept this burger.......anyway, I ate it and it did taste good but it was really weird. The burger was served w/ grilled peppers and onions sitting on top of 4 pcs of pita. Not sure how you are supposed to eat it, so I left the pita. Came with a side salad. Our waitress (cute girl) took the burger off the bill (thank you). It was buy one get one for $2 anyway...Dan had a burger also (no bun) and he wasn't crazy about his, thought it was dry. New Girl had a chicken wrap w/ fries and said it was very good. We also tried the Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cheesecake....meh, it was okay.
Bread made fresh daily (and you can totally tell!)
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2012 - 1:34pm [Dine in]
I ordered the Roasted Club - Home roasted whole turkey breast topped with crispy maple glazed bacon, lettuce, tomato & spicy mayo on a freshly made (in house daily) bun....it was FABULOUS!! Served with a 'summer salad' w/ mixed greens, strawberries, blueberries, goat cheese, walnuts and a raspberry vinaigrette. Dan had the Maple Bacon Cheddar Burger (also on a homemade bun) and said its probably the best burger he's had all year (his fave was Kildare House, until today...)....and New Girl had the Tuscan Shrimp Wrap - Shrimp & Tuscan Beans w/ spicy mayo and lettuce on an herbed wrap (served cold)....everyone enjoyed their meals immensely. That was my first time, and the view is gorgeous, the place is beautiful. Service was a little slow, but that's probably because we were on retired guys turf.......I can't wait to go back!!
Azzurri = delicious!
Submitted Monday, June 4, 2012 - 7:15pm [Dine in]
Thin Crust, Wood Fired Pizza w/ carmelized almonds, gorgonzola, spinach, chicken & carmelized pears! OMG, it was delicious!! My husband 'created' his own with pepperoni, prosciutto & mozzarella....he really enjoyed his as well. Great vibe in there too. Lunch and dinner menu is the same, so its a bit pricey for lunch (although you could share an 8 slice pizza for $ 15 or less), and very reasonable for dinner. We had a Groupon so the point is moot! ;)
Submitted Friday, May 25, 2012 - 6:23pm [Dine in]
Every year our boss takes us out for an "after tax-season dinner", so La Zingara was the place this year! Really nice inside (and we love the doors that open to the soon to be patio). I like to order different things, so I got the Potato Encrusted Sea Bass served with green beans. My meal was very good. 5 out of 6 of us enjoyed our meals. Great service, nice place. I'd go back.
