All Star Wings and Ribs808 Bute St, Vancouver
All Stars- wing dings and cow bits
Submitted Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - 2:57pm [Dine in]

The Food: Wings are breaded or un-breaded, I usally go with the breaded because for me it enhances the flavor of the wing. Presentation was what I would expect from a sports bar. The prices where mid-high in my view, $10 for a lbs , $20 for 2lbs and so on. Overall these wings were good, it came out hot and flavorful. I have only been to this place five times, and it looks like I will have to keep going until I have tried all the 256 flavors. Having this many flavors I find is a bit over kill especially when you have the basic wing sauces and spices all mixed together creating all these sub flavors that are sometimes hit an miss. This makes the decision process much longer and harder, however waitress does carry a little guide with them, which I dig but life would be much easier if the had it on the menu.

I ordered my favorite, the Caribbean Jerk ( SISCO Brand Sauce). If you have never tried this sauce I would defiantly recommend it, it’s complete AWESOME! It’s the type of sauce that grows on you, the flavor is unique in it’s own right .The SISCO brand Caribbean Jerk sauce is rare, and most restaurants have stopped serving it because it’s not a great seller. So please my fellow wing people keep this sauce ALIVE!

El’ problmeo: Their happy hour specials on wings that runs from 3pm-6pm. There is no democracy on your choice of flavors, All-Stars only allows you choose from 6 flavors for $7.95, ever other flavor is regular $10.00. I’m sure there is a back story, BUT when you’re boasting 256 flavors then turn around and constraint your customers to only 6 flavors during happy hour doesn’t not sit well. Oh and the cover charge during UFC fight night is a little cheeky.

This place is a total bro bar, big boobs, bimbos, and big bone buckets . There is also TV at every booth playing sports so this might drive a few of you little crazy. Needless to say things are neat and well organized, it’s a great location, it’s bright, open, and has a nice layout. Service: Staff were nice, they where friendly , sincere and welcoming. Bathroom was very clean and well maintained. Yes the bathroom, so what who cares right! Think of it this way; if the staff don't care how the clean the bathroom is, then they don't care about how they make your food.

Final Word

Despite the bro bar theme, the left wing happy hour special I would check this place because it’s wing focused, it has okay service, decent food, on the other hand in order to take advantage of all the 256 flavors I would recommend taking a posse of friends rather then go solo.

Red Wagon, The2296 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Hold My Breaky and watch this!
Submitted Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - 2:56pm [Dine in]

I have been a Sunrise resident for the last 5 years. I always enjoy going to the Red Wagon, it's a gem, and for locals that appreciate a greasy spoon , it's doesn't get any better than this. The place has a lot of character, staff are always pleasant , hard working ,and hearty. The food is great, I always pick the trucker or the $7 breaky. The pancakes are awesome sauce and the hash is so flavourful. Yes kids and hipsters it gets busy, staff get run off their feet, mistakes happen, be patient and there always willing to accommodate and fix things , don't create things in your head.

SPECIAL NOTICE: For those who are impatient, have a sense of entitlement or presume they have high standards, grow up! Good things comes to those who wait. If you came half way across Vancouver to wait 45 mins, then you are in for it for the long haul, deal with it. It's a great breakfast joint and there is only so much space so if you get fussy I'm sure the cooks can whip you up a nice poo sandwich!

Splitz Grill4242 Main Street, Vancouver
Splitz Is Itz
Submitted Wednesday, January 16, 2013 - 2:04pm [Dine in]

Okay so burger joints, love them and there is more than enough here in Vancool to choose from. Splitz rates at the top 5 of my list and that’s saying a lot.

I know were this place is I swear, course every time I go there for a burger fix I’m having to do a U turn because I always miss it for some weird reason, don’t ask me why just happens.

It’s on Main and 27th kids! ,

Little tip: park on 27th about a block up, no permits, free parking, this area fills up pretty fast so get in there.

The joint: The atmosphere is simple with wooden booths, clean bathrooms (important), open grill for you to watch the cook to their thang . However it’s nothing to spectacular, but in truth let the food be the wow factor not the pad.

Food: Simple, just place you order at the front, there is lots to choose from in the way of burgers and they offer the combos which is a good thingy, great shakes. I like the dress your own concept, and the fact they call you by name. Ingredients were fresh and there was no slop or cross mixing of sauces or vegetables. The taste of the burgers was awesome, awesome, the only thing I would say is have a little democracy with the BBQ sauce, make it an option not a forcible ingredient. Overall the burgers were well cooked, juicy and infused with good flavour. I love how you can stack it up, I would recommend their caramelized onions,num num. Definitely go outside the box and try there wild side selections , especially the Bison burger if cow is not for you. Fries were meh , yes meh fries , not saying it was bad not saying it was phantasmagoric either, I just like a certain type of fry.

Service: Was great the people were just good hearty folk that love burgers,
and it doesn’t get any better than that. All staff seem to be cheery, no downers, dorks od dickheads .

Value: Is decent for what you pay for a quality moo moo sandwich

The verdict

Overall I dig, I can see myself going here many times because it’s very consistent which I feel is integral to any successful joint of this calibre, and If you no like well you don’t know burgers or your just an idiot.

The Vancouver Irish Experience
Submitted Friday, January 11, 2013 - 10:50am [Dine in]

I have never really understood the whole wanabe Irish bars here in Vancouver, or maybe it’s just the concept on what they think an Irish pub is. How about we just go with an Irish theme bar instead, I think this bar fits the build.

Location: I have to admit it’s a nice piece of real-estate, and it has a really nice view. Course your going to have to pay for that nice piece of real estate, hey some one has to pay the rent right! With that said be prepared to pay a couple dollars more for the drinks and food than your average pub.

Food: What is Irish on the menu? Well let’s looks at the menu, gee absolutely nothing because all I see is a mixed bag of things. Yep Finbar Mahoney was definitely feeling pretty down after his failed career and decided to brighten his spirits with a Thai Panang Curry Chicken. I had a few dishes and found the presentation to be blah, the drinks to be watered down and over priced, beer kind of skunky CLEAN YOUR PIPES LAD, followed by more blah,blah, blah . Nothing special here, typical pub fare marketed up to make it look like something different.

You can find Pub fare else were for a lot more affordable price. I found the beef dip to be a little on the fatty side and cold, Irish sausage bangers and mash was uneventful and of kind of bland. The presentation was completely boring. Oh bangers and mash is English kids, not Irish next to the fish and chips in the newspaper. As for the Irish sausage, think they picked the lowest end they could possibly get, or maybe its Vancouver Irish sausage.

Suggestion : If you wanted to have the Irish influence go with the all day Irish breakfast fried egg, rashers, soda bread with real butter, and Ed black and white pudding, just a thought guys. Lunch try some sambos and soup.

The Service: It was pretty good no complaints there. No one was running around with there head cut off wondering what was going on. The waitress’s seem to be nice and efficient. How about those skirts!

From my view they did not do there research when it comes to the food, which it makes it all the more fake, the only thing that got going for them is the view, and for what it is worth, get a subway sandwich and a six pack of Bowen Island be marry and watch all the drunk yuppies throw there money away.

“Irish music. Irish food. Irish craic. Who knew an authentic Irish experience could be found in Vancouver?”. But an authentic Irish experience is exactly what you’ll find at Mahony & Sons Public House.

Ummmm…..what does that mean?

And who invited the Mexican to make roast chicken quesadillas if this an authentic Irish dining experience?

If you really want a traditional “pub” or “experience” rent out a smaller space guys, put in the long red leather seats, aged wood interior, complete with the old man an his dog. Have the customers come up an order, serve a couple types of local beers and some crisps.

Lucy's Eastside Diner2708 Main Street, Vancouver
Le Cow sandwich + Le serveur= Le CRAP!
Submitted Tuesday, April 17, 2012 - 5:40pm [Dine in]

I love 50s dinner themes, chromes seats , old pictures , old fans old this and old that. I'm a big le burger fan , I been to a lot of joints here in Vancool and I have to tell ya this one hits the curb, tumbles , hits the post , and then slams in to the wall, like hard!

So I ordered their burger , fries, and a coke. I had a look around the place, it could have used a wipe down for sure, the kitchen was a little sketchy, waitress looks like she did not shower for a couple of days, she looked like a slob.

So order comes , it was a little slow, but whatever did not think much of it. Took a few bites of the burger and it tasted rancid . I'm a man of instinct so I did not finish. Finally waitress went by and asked if everything was okay, I said nay, she replied " whats wrong" , I said that burger is off you need to throw it out. "She was like can we make you something else", I said no just the bill I'm not taking another chance, I figure I would pay for the soda.I saw her take it to the cook and they booth looked lost, it was like the were sharing the same brain , like what happened, hello rancid burger dumb dumb . Special note cook did not look a cook at all, but one of those hipster types that was probably a roommate or a friend of friend that filled in because the real cook was probably hung over.

She came back with the bill and said I had to PAY FOR IT , Unbelievable! Her excuse was" I do not want to get in trouble for this cause I would be out of job" . Like wow, you can take the $11 hit for a rotten cow sandwich because I'm selfish. Nice job guys, maybe you should start a bathroom take out window, one rat burger and sewage water please hold the foam !

To all the people that have not been here dodge this one it's a gong show.

Oh you skeevy chicken !
Submitted Sunday, March 25, 2012 - 8:24am [Dine in]

So I’m a wings fan just like anyone else here in the greater Vancool area, however with this particular location I have some concerns that I want to address to my fellow wing comrade in arms. In my opinion to get the full gist of how a place operates you have to go to it a few times. Here is where it gets stinky.

1. Wings special .39 cents, how ever you have to get a drink with it and there are no refills , not to mention .39 cent charge for wings not eaten. Come on is pop really and serious overhead.
2. Make sure to count your wings, yes I’m not kidding you. Three times I have had to do this and they were off by like 4 wings. “Oh whatever just 4 wings right”, think about it if there doing this to everyone , your wallets are not smiling during happy hour.
3. Service – Not very cohesive at all, 1 server that’s here then disappears, 2 back servers that flick there hair look at their phones and bring the wrong orders to you, and a hostess that some times wipes the tables , and has the look of “ Shucks chuck What I’m a doing with my life” , and has no idea what going on.
4. Lady Bombay – I’m thinking she is the owner because amongst all the cute servers she looks so out of place. This person is rude, not flexible at all with her customers, and has an attitude not suited for the service industry, Lady Bombay I recommend the dry cleaning business.
5. Ambiance – Well is what it is , nothing to right home about, seats could be cleaned and whipped down once and a while because it looks like it has not been done for some time.

Black Frog Review
Submitted Tuesday, August 24, 2010 - 8:33am [Dine in]

When I first walked into The Black Frog I got that funky, laid back feeling. The place had character, embellish with all its nick knacks, next to its unique location. There were a lot of flies around, which is not necessarily a good sign, especially around the kitchen area. The staff seemed pleasant, genuine and very helpful. On the other hand the food was not so impressive, and for me that was the big minus right there. It seems to be no effort or creativity at all. It was the kind of food you could make at home. I ordered the Greek flavoured wings and fries. You could tell the wings were tossed in the deep fryer and sprinkled with Mrs. Dashes Greek seasoning; if you going to do that give the wings to me for $5.00 instead of $10.00. Another time I had their pulled chicken sandwich. I would describe it as mom’s leftovers from a few days ago thrown into the microwave. I would also like to point out that there is no refill on pop, which they did they did not bother tell me. Beer was suffering, little skunky and flat, I wonder if they even bother to clean there pipes. Overall interesting place but so what who cares.
