I would give it all 5's, but I'm trying to respect the rating system.
The food is just awesome when it comes to the fish and chips. The batter on the fish is VERY THIN and is just enough of a shell to hold in the fish. This is the way I like it, I eat it for the fish, not the batter. I've only ordered the Cod so far as it was so good, I didn't see a need to get halibut. Fish is not overcooked and is very easy to eat and cut. I used to goto c-lovers in newton, but I won't be any more. Also, the fries are the best and the slaw is great!
Service is great, the place is usually fairly quiet for eating in so the owners greet you and tell you to sit wherever you would like. When I finished my drink, they were very attentive to refill it without me having to ask.
Prices seem normal for fish and chips. No complaints here.
Not much ambiance, but it is clean and the dining room looks new. Nothing to complain about for fish and chips.

First time I ordered from A Taste of Punjab I was hot happy with the taste of the food. I love spicy food, but this was just overwhelming and made it hard to taste the flavors. However, when our favorite Indian restraunt was closed, we decided to give it another try. Boy was I surprised! Some of the best indian food I've had in a long time. It wasn't too spicy this time and the flavors were just awesome. Keema Nan dipped in Lamb Korma is my favorite meal. The Samosa in the Mixed Snack Platter was also to die for!

I live not too far away from Fresgo's and have been there many times since I was younger. It is not a high class or "great" restaurant by any means, but it is one of my favorite "dives". Food portions are HUGE and if you can finish a full meal, I would be very surprised. I almost always get the Double Bacon Cheeseburger & Montreal Style poutine. Quick route to a heart attack, but damn it is good!
Food can really be hit or miss. Sometimes the burgers come out great and fresh, other times it seems like they have been on the grill all day. (They haven't. You can see them cook your burger if you really want to watch.) Maybe a result of all the younger staff they seem to hire.
One caution though, our family has gotten sick from the food at this restaurant. The Chicken Ceaser Salad dressing must have gone bad. It tasted fine, but the next day we all woke up sick. Haven't been back since, but I've been craving their Chowder.
