Avocado Egg Rolls are to die for!
Submitted Friday, May 25, 2012 - 6:19pm [Dine in]
On Mother's Day my daughter and I used our "Groupon" and had dinner at Chanoso's. There were some options, but I told her that the appetizer had to be avocado egg rolls no matter what. She was worried when she read the ingredients list, but let me tell you - she LOVED them and she can't wait to go back for some more. For the entree I had the chef salad which was good and she had a stir fry and she said she liked it. For dessert we ordered the Chocolate Monkey Crepes and the Chocolate Peanut Torte. She loved both, but I prefer apple desserts! Anyway, I've been dreaming about the egg rolls. I need another fix! Amazing!! Service was a bit slow, but otherwise I like the feel of the place.
Open for 100+ years, our 1st visit

Dave and I ordered the Fish & Chips dinner which included a nice piece of Halibut with light batter, fresh cut fries, coleslaw and homemade tartar. Everything was really good and the prices are excellent (especially since I understand Halibut is really pricey). Its not the cleanest place I've ever been, but I guess with deep fryers you get some grease. Looking forward to going back - good prices for breakfast and lunch and I hear Aldea makes great coconut cream pie.
Chevaps = Yum
Submitted Tuesday, April 17, 2012 - 5:37am [Dine in]
Date Night (with a Groupon)......for an appetizer we ordered the Beef Tips; they were good. My Entree was Chicken Florentine w/ rice & veggies. My plate was hotter than my meal, and I ordered roasted potatoes but got rice (didn't complain). Sadly, I wasn't crazy about it any of it. Hubby had the Soup (beef w/ rice) and it was really good (I tried it), and he had the Chevaps w/ roasted potatoes & vegetables. Chevaps are ground beef/veal/pork formed into sausage shaped meat....they were excellent, very lean & tasty. The place is gorgeous, prices are reasonable, I love the atmosphere and the waitress was excellent and super cute. I'll definitely go back, and I think I'll order the Chevaps! ;)
Best bread I've ever had!
Submitted Tuesday, April 17, 2012 - 5:32am [Take-out]
The Special of the Day was a Chicken/Goat Cheese/Roasted Red Pepper Panini...OMG!! Amazing sandwich and the bread was "Killer" to quote my boss. I also bought some Whole Wheat & Chocolate cookies to share and my boss said the cookie was in the "top 5 cookies" he's ever had! They were very good....soft & chewy, with a little crunch too......Specials change daily, lots of premade salads/soups/entrees in the fridge too! Lots of preserves, coffee, organic sauces & noodles & grains too. Everything looks great and Julie (the owner) is the cutest little thing I've ever seen! Good prices, fresh food, homemade breads/muffins/cookies.....you should definitely go!! Seriously.....
I didn't mean to order Wonton Soup, but I'm not sorry I did!
Submitted Thursday, April 12, 2012 - 12:26pm [Dine in]
Something new....Vietnamese food! I'm always up for something new! I ordered M8 from the Noodle Menu thinking I was getting pork & veggies on noodles....they brought me a bowl of Wonton Soup w/ veggies & pork!! Okay, I'll eat it, as it was the right item on the menu....it smelled delicious, it tasted delicious! Really great flavour.....and lots of stuff in it so I was full by the time I was finished. I'm usually not big on Wonton Soup, but this was different from anything I'd ever had before. My boss ordered M7, the Beef w/ veggies on Egg Noodles and he said it was incredible! Fast service, good prices, large quantities. We'll definitely go back!
Club House, much better on Sundays
Submitted Thursday, April 12, 2012 - 6:16am [Take-out]
I play darts next door, and our bar doesn't serve food....my friends were ordering food so I did too. I didn't have a menu in front of me so I ordered a club house with fries (same as last time). Last time (on a Friday night) it was small and the fries were cold. This time (on a Sunday afternoon) the sandwich was really big and delicious and the fries were hot! Same order, different experience. Very good this time....

Our first time and we loved it!! Bought the Groupon, which I love because it forces us to go out and try new things! I had the Honey Almond Chicken salad w/ baby greens, green apple, cucumber, tomato, red onion and a honey dressing....it was really good. The daughter had the halibut w/ fries. My husband had the steak and shrimp with mashed potatoes. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. I thought the halibut dinner was quite small for the price, but apparently halibut is crazy expensive. My husband works midnights and doesn't want a huge meal for 'breakfast' so he thought his meal was just the right size. The place is hoppin' and I guess it does great business in the spring / summer when the boats pull in. I really like this place....can't wait to go back!
Barbar 21389 Wyandotte Street E, Windsor Second time not the charm
Submitted Thursday, April 12, 2012 - 5:57am [Take-out]
So, last time I was surprised to find out that no one had heard of this place, it was good and cheap.....second try not so great!! I ordered a Chicken Shawarma to go and the quality of the chicken was not great, AND I pulled an unknown object out of my mouth.....that's the last time I go here! Ewww....
Tuscan Turkey Club
Submitted Thursday, April 12, 2012 - 5:53am [Dine in]
Its been years since I've been here, I was never really a fan, however I had gift cards and we wanted something different. I had the Tuscan Turkey Club (which I have had before and enjoyed)....it was excellent! My daughter had the ribs and she liked them, but I thought the sauce was really weird. My son had the Hell's Kitchen Chicken. He said he liked it, but he didn't finish his meal and that's not like him. I ordered my side salad to go. I ordered Veal Parmesan for my husband to go as well....we went home with 2 huge bags of food.. My husband said there was hardly any pasta in his dish though. Also, I was surprised at how pricey everything was (except my sandwich)...I spent a lot more than I expected. I'd go back though.
The roasted garlic was creamy and delicious!

My boss took all of us out for breakfast on Good Friday (we work in a tax office so we don't have time for holidays!) and we were lined up outside the door when the place opened! I ordered the chef's special omelette which had roasted garlic and fresh mushroom; served with home fries, multigrain toast and homemade strawberry jam. It was excellent. All the others ordered the French Toast and everyone said it was excellent. Its a little pricey, but they are doing good business (just celebrated 1 year open). I'll definitely go back!
Harvey's2550 East Tecumseh Road, Windsor Grilled Chicken Sandwich was awful
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2012 - 12:55pm [Take-out]
I now remember why I don't order this sandwich! I haven't had one in years but as I'm trying to eat healthier, I thought I'd try it again. The quality of the chicken was horrible, really stringy and it didn't taste good at all. I couldn't even finish...My boss shared some fries with me and they were awful too....service was kinda slow, but I don't really mind that as they make everything fresh. One thing I really appreciate is that employees wear gloves when they touch my food! I'll go back, but I'm skipping that sandwich!!
Best Egg Salad Sandwich I've ever had
Submitted Monday, March 12, 2012 - 7:57pm [Dine in]
I ordered the Egg Salad on ancient grains bread, toasted with homemade potato chips and I think it was the best egg salad I've ever had! I think the key is that Deb minces her onion so there's great flavour throughout. My boss ordered the Club House with Real Turkey and the sandwich was enormous! Great food, cute place, ridiculously cheap prices!.....and Deb even puts a dish of water and dog treats outside for the dogs! How cute is that!?
Arby's6807 East Tecumseh Rd, Windsor Roasted Turkey & Swiss Market Fresh Sandwich
Submitted Monday, March 12, 2012 - 7:47pm [Take-out]
The Roasted Turkey & Swiss Market Fresh Sandwich was really good. Served on very fresh multigrain bread.....lots of fresh ingredients, plenty of food for lunch. The price is pretty good too, at $ 6.20 including tax. The very next day I was back and ordered my standard Regular Roast Beef, which I also love!
Greek Omelette was amazing!
Submitted Sunday, March 4, 2012 - 3:05pm [Dine in]
I ordered the Greek Omelette. It was stuffed with an "abundance" of veggies & feta and it was absolutely delicious!! Served with home fries & whole wheat toast. The daughter ordered a Club House w/ real turkey on whole wheat, toasted, no tomatoes. Served with fries & coleslaw. She really enjoyed her lunch as well! Good prices, fast service, and jam packed! That place is rockin!
Excellent food, fast service, great prices!

I ordered the Greek Salad in a Pita. It was excellent!! The best I've ever had (yep) with excellent traditional dressing. The pita was grilled to perfection. A little messy to eat, but wow.....delicious!! Its busy in there so people know about it! Tecumseh Road West across from Bargain Shop!
McBistro Grilled Chicken Sandwich
Submitted Thursday, March 1, 2012 - 6:48am [Take-out]
Hilarious how McDonalds now goes by McCafé, but whatever....I thought I`d try the McBistro Grilled Chicken BLT. I specifically asked if the chicken was real chicken and I was assured that it was. I got it grilled instead of fried as I`m watching my waistline. I have to say that the chicken was really bland, however the bacon was good, as was the bun. As I recall, the sandwich was pricey, with the combo being over $ 10, but I could be wrong because my bill came to $ 8.69 with a large pop and there were fries in the bag (which I didn`t ask for), so not sure if I just got a bonus medium fry, or if that was the combo price!? And what was I supposed to do, throw out perfectly delicious fries? I don't think so.....anyway, the sandwich was just okay, and I won't be ordering it again. P.S....Value is rated as outstanding IF the price includes fries....either way I got a lot of food for the price, so I guess I (and maybe only me) got good value!
Best Buffet I've ever had
Submitted Sunday, February 26, 2012 - 4:14pm [Dine in]
This was by far the best brunch buffet I've ever had. The selection was huge, featuring Broaster Chicken, eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, beef, pork, veggies, several types of salads.....everything was delicious, especially the chicken and the chickpea salad!! I'm not usually a fan of buffets but I'd go back for sure. Nicest thing about this place is the ambiance, as its all in one big green house with plants everywhere!
New Panini Menu!
Submitted Tuesday, February 21, 2012 - 4:25pm [Dine in]
I usually go to Kurley's on Fridays so I can have the world famous Fishwich, but seeing as its only Tuesday I tried a panini from their new menu! I ordered the Turkey Club Panini and it was really good! Big sandwich (I could only eat half) served with a side of potato salad, which was pretty good!). They have about 15 varieties, and they also have a new Hot Dawg menu! Perhaps I'll try one of those next time!!
Check out the view!

I bought the Groupon (those things ROCK!!)....so for $ 25 we got 1 appetizer and 2 entrees. For the app we chose the Vegetable Flat Bread which was really good, and the portion was a good size. I ordered the Parmesan Chicken Bowtie Pasta and Hubby had the Perch dinner w/ carrots & garlic mashed potatoes. My pasta was superb and Dave's perch was excellent. He wasn't crazy about the potatoes, but otherwise dinner was amazing. The place was packed so service was too slow for my husband the smoker, but I didn't have a problem with it. Its a bit noisy in there, but that's really my only complaint. Great place! Good prices even without the Groupon! I look forward to my next visit!
The Basmati Rice was amazing!!
Submitted Saturday, February 18, 2012 - 12:14pm [Dine in]
We shared Shawarma Beef & Shawarma Chicken w/ Basmati Rice plate, Hummus w/ Pita Bread, Fattoush Salad, Chicken soup. The food was excellent, the presentation was beautiful, the restaurant is gorgeous and the prices are amazing!! Service was a little bit slow (one waitress for 5 or so tables), but other than that I don't have any complaints! ! Overall an incredible lunch; We'll go back!! (can't wait!)
