I was walking to the Career Zone a few blocks away and it's lunch time, I'm hungry. Saw through the window that it was one of those cool diners I love so much so I went in. Was immediately confronted with the back of someone else's booth as there is not a lot of room at the front door. Had a seat in one of the booths and was informed by the waitress that she might have to move me to the counter as they only allow couples or groups to sit in the booths. She didn't wind up doing that, anyways. My waitress was fine when she was dealing with me, if a bit abrupt and rushed, but I heard her say that there was supposed to be another waitress on so I'm thinking that she was left to deal with the entire restaurant in the busy lunch hour. I ordered my usual chocolate milkshake (fantastic, real chocolate ice cream, very thick, delicious) and fish (Halibut) and chips with a side of gravy. The fries were great, obviously hand cut. I didn't like the gravy, but I don't really worry if I don't like it because some places can't make good gravy, so what? The food is what counts. The Halibut wasn't good, but that might be because I like Tempura and this stuff is beer battered. When I was waiting for my lunch to arrive, a second waitress arrived and my waitress and the other girl plus the cook started discussing the fact that there was supposed to be another waitress there but that something had happened that morning. Loudly, I'm sure the entire restaurant could hear this conversation. And then they're on the phone with their manager/owner and arguing with him over this. I also gathered that whoever this guy is, he's my waitress' boyfriend. I asked for the bill and was surprised to see that it was $20, without tip, which the waitress never got because the meal was too expensive and the deal with the other waitress. So I won't be returning, because I can get my favorite Fish and chips for cheaper at Nat Bailey's place or out in Fort Langley without the arguing. True, the chocolate shake won't be as good, but at least the service is better.

Vera's Burger Shack1181 Denman Street, Vancouver
Extremely Bad Service
Submitted Saturday, March 21, 2009 - 11:20pm [Dine in]

Me and a couple friends went here. There was only one customer left in the restaurant as it was 10 minutes to closing time when we walked in. I ordered a chocolate milkshake (which was excellent to the last suck of the straw), fries and the Vera Burger with Ketchup and tomato only. I only got the fries because they messed up my burger and it was uneatable as I'm pretty picky about my burgers. Friend 1 ordered a Coke, Fries and a Vera Burger with all the toppings. His was the only order that came out properly. And Friend 2 ordered a mushroom and cheese burger and fries. We didn't get one of the bags of fries, so I had an entire one for myself so I wouldn't go hungry. We also only got two of the burgers even though I'm nearly certain I saw the so called chef placing three hamburger patties on the grill for our order. The one burger was friend 1's burger done perfectly. The other was a mix between mine (the ketchup and tomato part) mixed with friend 2's (it had cheese on it). We complained to the cashier and he claimed that was the order taken. We were extremely pissed off and decided not to return to that location, but I still want to try a Vera Burger, but if they can't take an order properly the next time I won't give them a third try. The lesson here is if you go to Vera's for take out, make sure you check your entire order before you leave the restaurant!

Pretty good

Came here as a mistake as we meant to go to another restaurant in the area, but got lost and decided to try this one because we were hungry. We walked in and noted that it was busy for a Monday night. The fish tank was clean and the fish looked healthy. We both ordered the 2 piece of Halibut and chips. The pieces of Halibut were huge, a lot bigger than either of us is used to, so we both could have been satisfied on the 1 piece meal. As for the taste, I like my fish and chips a little greasy and these weren't, so it's a good restaurant for those who don't like greasy fish. The french fries and gravy were good. They brought us buns and butter before the meal and to our surprise and delight, the buns were hot(!) and fresh baked. We may return or recommend it to others.

Not that great

Went here with one of my friends and decided between the two of us not to return. We would not recommend this restaurant to others. I ordered a chocolate milkshake, fries and gravy. I couldn't taste the chocolate in the milkshake and we suspect they're not using chocolate ice cream, rather that it's vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. My fries and gravy were rather good, though the gravy was a bit on the lumpy side. My friend ordered their Meatloaf dinner, which comes with mashed potatoes and choice of soup or salad. He ordered the soup as it is a rainy day and said it was all right. When his main course arrived, he received roasted potatoes rather than mashed and had to get up, go to the front and get the hostess to get our server over to our table. When she came she brought the mashed potatoes and apologized for her error. I could see that the potatoes had been served with an ice cream scoop (meaning they'd been sitting somewhere for a while) and he said they were instant. As for the meatloaf he said it tasted like a hamburger patty. There weren't many people in the restaurant and we can understand why. Other than that, it's basically like any other major chain restaurant.

Fantastic!

I've been to this restaurant twice and both times walked out very satisfied with the meal. The portions of fish are very big and it's not uncommon, if you order the 2 piece Fish and Chips, to receive 3 or more pieces if they think the pieces are too small. The chips are delicious and plentiful. The gravy and tartar sauce are both homemade and very good. I have already recommended it to a friend enough that we went together my second time. He loved it so much we'll return soon together. But (and there always is a but, isn't there?) you may want to bring a sweater as it is a bit cold in there because I suspect they have the heat purposefully turned down quite a bit to keep costs down. They have two heater fans, but that doesn't do much to keep you perfectly warm. Also, they're not licensed, but I don't drink alcohol so I never care one way or another.
