Dockers Family Restaurant is a greasy spoon that has been serving hungry people since 1971. Breakfast served all day.
I reviewed Dockers a few months back and was not impressed on a couple of fronts with them at that time. I must update now because every thing I pointed out as negative has since changed!
The food is amazing! The hash browns are crispy and cooked, unlike the old pasty white things they used to serve. I love the vast selection of omelets.
The coffee is perfect diner coffee that tastes like decent drip coffee rather than the tea like stuff it used to be. This put a huge smile on my face. :-)
I also have not seen the older waitress in a while that was oh so rude. The young girl there is fun, personable and hot! The owner who often helps on the floor is very pleasant and genuinely interested in his customers.
If there were a couple of breakfast selections that were below $8 I would be here all the time. There is one cheap special but you have to go in early for that which is something I never quite manage to make.
Definitely the best breakfast spot on Fraser!
Tried Dockers for the first time, though i've lived in this area for 5 years now. The menu was extensive, and lots of variety of sandwiches, and subs. The server was a sweet older gentleman that served with such sincerity and hospitality. My vegetables were a bit under cooked, but my companion really liked her beef dip, and my hot turkey sandwich was as good as homemade as they come, and the portions was quite large. The bread was a bit soggier, though, and crustless (i think they get it from across the street at the Angel cafe) ...covered in gravy...not a good combination...none the less, the atmosphere, and the warmth felt was very refreshing on a cold weekday,and after a long hard day at work...definitely returning back if I need comfort food.
Been goint to this restaurant since it became dockers and even before when it was still Pauls Sub. I even met the old Paul at his other restaurant along imperial after he sold this one.
The subs are still good as they were before. The breakfasts are still the same. The burgers however to me are better, and they have a greek burger with tzatziki sauce.
I like dockers as the service is better, but as stated, the food is slow. Coffee is ok as it is a small diner.
This place represents a fabulous local diner. Portions are large and if you want something to fill your belly, keep you warm during those cold and rainy days and not break the change in your pocket then this place is for you. Whether you are a white collar high roller or a hard working blue collar joe the staff treat everyone the same, warm and decent. Definitely a place to sit back, read the paper and enjoy some damn fine home cooking.
I love going to Dockers. I have had nothing but great, friendly service there, and the food is always good.
I always end up with their vegetarian omelette, which is huge and delicious, or the Greek pancakes, which are super tasty and yummy. My roommate says they have the best eggs benedict she has ever had, something about using whipping cream or something in the sauce, I don't know, I hate eggs benedict.
Nothing special about the ambiance, it's your typical local greasy spoon setting.
great breakfast with real pan fried potatoes not those awful frozen kind. A great variety of food here and also great coffee and great friendly owner.A great place for breakfast or brunch or lunch.I love coming here for the food anmd friendly folks who work there.I I highly recommend it.You will come back
Way better than the 89 Inn is where i have to start.
If you want frozen food and watered down coffee go there.
Dockers isn't perfect either but it's the best of it's kind on Fraser anyways.
I'm not sure what the other reviewer ordered because i have never recieved a large portion. Not that i care mind you. Less out food is always good right?
Burger is ok and the fish and chips aren't frozen.
Coffee is good. Somebody wants it stronger all you have to do is ask the man and he will do it for you. I seen this happen in person.
Reason it isn't strong enough to bulge your eyes is that the owner actually listens to most of his customers and that's what they prefer he says.
I found the lady to be rather nice as well.
The only thing i could see anyone finding wrong with her is that she isn't a 20 year old blonde.
My Husaband and I went there for dinner last night and we were quite surprized that the diner was virtually empty mind you it was around 7 and they close at 8 . The owner was quite nice and what we ordered was good My husband ordered the super sub which he was comparing it to the previous resturant Pauls that use to be at this location as we ate he said I anm beginning to like this more and more with each bite. It was good I ate a rhuben, it was a bit on the salty side due to the cheese but the meat quality was very lean same with the sub. A good place . Was a bit dissapointed there were not a lot of greek items but over all Good we will come back
I have gone to Docker's a few times and have been more than happy with the experience. The food is tasty! I've ordered a variety of dishes, some favourites being the subs, chicken souvlaki, and veggie ommelette. The soup i've tried has always been yummy and homemade. It's a great gem of a restaurant : )
I've been to Dockers numerous times and at various times of the day. The food is solid and consistent when you finally get it. For some reason every time I've been there the kitchen is sloooooooow in getting your omelette made and that's even if we're only one of two other tables in the place. The coffee is nothing to write home about but the service is friendly and it's a nice local place to go for consistent food just don't go when you're absolutely famished.
