Hi DineHere readers,
I've seen ABC country at its infancy, and out of all the times I've eaten there I'd like to do the restaurant some justice and remark on my experience here.
ABC Country is a family restaurant with a farm theme as shown by the pitchforks and the old-school lamps as some of the decorations you will encounter there. As inferred by the random farm ornaments decorating the interior, ABC Country Restaurant has an emphasis on farm-fresh local ingredients and you can really taste it in the food. For breakfast, there is only one thing I order and that is the Farmer Sausage Skillet. If it is your first time eating breakfast there, I highly recommend it. It has farm fresh sausage, scallions, mushrooms, cheese, potatoes, and your choice of egg or egg whites (egg whites at no extra charge is a plus) along with some toast on the side.
For breakfast, I always ask for egg whites and multi-grain toast with no butter on it with my farmer sausage skillet. As for dinner, I usually get the pulled-pork sandwich with skinny fries and substitute the coleslaw with a small garden salad with raspberry vinaigrette. However, no matter what I order, the food is consistently great, fresh tasting, properly portioned and of great value. The servers have no problems adjusting to the substitutions I request and they are done at no extra charge.
They often have coupons in the Richmond Review (?) and have a frequent diner reward system. For every 5 times you dine there, you get your next entree up to 10 dollars free! Their frequent diner reward system used to have a 3 month expiry from the first stamp, but now it doesn't expire anymore. Also, they have seasonal promotions where a free dessert is included (usually the Mount Baker ice cream and cake dessert) when you order 2 entrees from a special menu. There are free refills on pop and bottomless fries, which is a plus.
In Richmond, where ethnic foods tend to outnumber western foods, this place has always been rock solid for a simple burger or wholesome country favourites and I will be returning here for as long as this place remains this way.
