IHOP - International House of Pancakes950 West Broadway, Unit 200, Vancouver
pancake all-you-can-eat
Submitted Friday, February 12, 2016 - 9:39am [Dine in]

IHOP is short for international house of pancake - a typical restaurant chain similar to Denny's. The only IHOP in Vancouver is located upstairs near Broadway and Oak street. Clean casual ambiance with televisions available and over 20 tables. Only problem is that there tends to be customers waiting to be served during busy periods. During mid January to mid February, limited promotion is available for various breakfast meal combos with all the buttermilk pancakes you can eat. However customer must ask for special breakfast menu. Regular menu lists a wider variety of foods at higher prices. Best deal is the $8.00 regular breakfast which consists of eggs, hash browns, bacon or sausages with pancakes. Two pancakes are initially served per plate and customers can order more. Their pancakes are light, warm, fluffy and delicious. On the table, there are 4 types of syrup - blueberry, strawberry, butter caramel and maple. Also there is unlimited pot of coffee for under $3.00. Overall, decent food that is served reasonably prompt by friendly attentive waitresses. Good value for breakfast that I would recommend.

Burger King2805 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
special promotions
Submitted Friday, February 20, 2015 - 6:31am [Dine in]

Located near Pacific National Exhibition, this Burger King tends to offer limited promotional deals not found in other Burger King restaurants. After 3:00pm, whopper junior combo meal is discounted to $3.00 while poutine costs $2.50. Outstanding bargains because regular prices are roughly close to $5.00 plus or minus range. Also most Burger Kings offer a variety of King deal items priced under $2.00 similar to McDonalds value items. Service is normally fast except during PNE weeks in August. As for ambiance, this modern restaurant has more seating capacity than most Burger Kings in Vancouver. Recommended for people who like average quality foods at low prices.

Govinda's5462 Marine Dr, Burnaby
Best deal in Burnaby
Submitted Monday, July 28, 2014 - 10:37am [Dine in]

Hare Krishna Temple has a small café hidden in a residential neighborhood of south Burnaby, Outdoor garden is peaceful and beautiful with plenty of parking space. Govinda is more like a friendly home instead of a restaurant. It is opened daily to the public during 12:30 to 14:30pm and offers a vegetarian buffet of sanctified food for body and soul. All-you-can-eat lunch menu changes often but consists of limited selection of rice, veggies, bread, curry, salad, pudding, fruits and juice. Overall, food is fresh, delicious, flavorful, nutritious and cheap. Suggested cash donation of $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for children and free for babies. Very good deal indeed.

Nine Dishes960 Kingsway, Vancouver
Eccentric, delicious and cheap
Submitted Friday, November 8, 2013 - 8:30am [Dine in]

Nine dishes is a small restaurant in east Vancouver that serves northern Chinese cuisine which tends to be spicy and oily. An often busy, casual and cozy place with easy to find parking space. Unlike traditional restaurants, there is little service in this informal hole-in-the-wall. Customers help themselves to their own bowls and utensils from a cart in back corner. Self serve rice and tea are free of charge. 5 separate menus with pictures show appetizers, soups or noodles, main courses, hot pots and barbeque foods. Customers write order on piece of paper before food is quickly prepared. Recommended are lamb skewer, eggplants on stick, fried lotus root stuffed with pork, Si Chuan sausage, house special spareribs, cold chicken in spicy sauce and boiled boneless fish with chili oil. Overall, good food and inexpensive prices. Nine dishes may not be for everyone but it is unique.

Megabite Pizza686 Seymour Street, Vancouver
pizza all-you-can-eat
Submitted Friday, October 26, 2012 - 3:45pm [Dine in]

On Sundays, this pizza restaurant has a special promotion. Under $7.00 for all the slices you can eat from 4-6 different pizzas inside glass display case. For examples, hawaiian, pepperoni, veggie and potato pizzas. At the front counter, a customer can order 1- 2 large slices on same paper plate which is refillable until customer leaves. Each delicious slice is reheated before being served and some have sesame seeds on crust. Service is quick and fresh pizza prepared often in this prime location catering to mostly walk-on traffic near busy Georgia street.. As for ambiance, the place is decent with few tables and chairs to allow customers to watch television. Overall, solid service, good location and outstanding value.

Costco Restaurant605 Expo Blvd., Vancouver
Best hotdog bargain downtown
Submitted Thursday, November 24, 2011 - 8:32am [Dine in]

Located near stadium skytrain station, this Costco cafetaria is outside the store and accessible for non-members. Best buy is $1.50+ for giant hotdog and unlimited soft drinks combo. Your choice of beef or European hotdog. Free mustard, relish, ketchup, garlic and pepper pieces. A similar hotdog alone would cost $3.00+ at street vendors downtown. Other bargains are the ice cream and fries or poutines in large portions. Pizza and fried chicken are available too. At the takeout counter, customer service is fast and efficient with lineups common. Ambiance isn't pretty or comfortable but there are tables if you don't mind dining outside and a view of hockey arena across the street. Overall, incredible deals here.

Chu Kiang6491 Knight Street, Vancouver
Big lunch special
Submitted Friday, May 27, 2011 - 7:59am [Take-out]

Chu Kiang is a small Chinese restaurant located in a small mall with parking space in front. From 11:00am to 4:00pm, 10 different meals are sold at discounted prices such as fried rice or noodle. We ordered beef broccoli chow mein to take out for $5.50. Above average value because the food is delicious and there is enough quantity to feed 2 persons. Service is friendly, efficient and timely considering there are few customers in a residential area far away from stores on Fraser and Victoria streets. However ambiance is mediocre because of unattractive old building. So takeout may be preferable to dining in. Overall, we enjoy this eating experience and would recommend this restaurant to others.

During lunch time of weekdays, Pizza Hut has an all-you-can-eat special. Great value because of the low price and good selection of food. Variety of small pizza slices in hawaiian, pepperoni and vegetarian flavours. Kraft dinner type noodles with cheese. Fresh salad in colourful mix of leafy greens, carrots, onion and peppers with dressings. Bread sticks are crispy and delicious. As for ambiance, this restaurant is divided into two areas.

No waiting because food is already prepared in advance. Overall, definitely one of the better all-you-can-eat deals.

Denny's3100 Douglas St., Victoria
Big meals and good value.
Submitted Monday, December 15, 2008 - 7:49am [Dine in]

While visiting Victoria, I ated at Denny's on 2 separate days. This 24-hours restaurant is conveniently located on a major street near a shopping mall. Secor was plain and simple but dark. Tables and floors appeared clean. During the first day, we used a promotion coupon offering 2 for 1 meals plus cost of drinks. The giant hamburger was delicious and generous. French fries were crisp and tender. Lemonade was cold and refreshing with refill free of charge. On the second day, I ordered the grandslam special for breakfast. Choice of eggs, sausages, hash brown, toasts, pancakes or oakmeal. As for service, waitresses are friendly and efficient. No lineup and food was served within 5-15 minutes. Overall, I like the menu, price, staff and place.
