A decent White Spot for once
By Bonka of Vancouver (464 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 10, 2011 - 5:43pm [Dine in]

Having been so dissatisfied with multiple White Spot locations, our visit here was of a request from a friend.

The decor here dawns the usual WH motifs, but seems tired these days. Still, things are kept tidy and nothing says Canadian like a White Spot.

You are usually here for the burgers so you have to have one. Luckily, my bacon cheddar burger was probably the best WS burger I've had in a long time. Patty was juicy, visible sight of cheddar and bacon but I still hated and continue to forget to omit the relish. Whether legendary or not, their fries are the same mundane nonsense and mostly avoided. Soda was flat and if not coincidence, seems more common at the various locations.

The service offered up few words but made all necessary actions. This one especially had mostly school-aged teens on the floor but went without hitch.

I've lost my interest in White Spot long ago, but at least this location still has their all their peas lined up on the rack.

The food was delicious....wasn't too thrilled with the dry ribs though.....

Service was what one would expect. I was happy....we'll come back

Great Example of White Spot
By Goodwrench of North Vancouver (40 Reviews)

One of my Favorite White Spots. The Service is awesome, I don't like to rate anything as incredible, but, Service here was pretty damn good. Food is always hot and upto Par. Been to some white spots that don't give you the extra bit of milk shake in the tin cup, this place ALWAYS does. No complaints, would recommend this White Spot.

Great Service

Always a bit of a wait for the food to get to the table. We've only been for breakfast or lunch and the food has been great.
Have noticed that the partitions need cleaning from sticky fingers of little kids in the booth areas and food wiped from the tables is always on the seats.
Top notch friendly service that keeps us going back for more good food.

I went to white spot with my parents on dec. 23 of last year and the food was excellent! The ambiance was a bit run down but overall, a truly fascinating experience! It's best to make a reservation before going because otherwise, you'll be waiting for up to an hour or more to get a seat. It's that crazy, lol! Fortunately for us, we made a reservation for 7pm and when we got there, we got seated right away which was good because I saw other people line up all the way out the door. I was like, what a relief! lol!

Submitted Sunday, January 8, 2006 - 1:42am [Dine in]

Food: Have had the fish/chips, chickenpickens, chicken pot pie, toasted shrimp sandwich, pumpkin pie, etc. The food here at this location is the best of all the white spots i've been to.
Service: Professionally gracious, efficient, and friendly. This is perhaps the best white spot in the lower mainland.
Ambiance: Recently renovated to be more upscale.

Not Fresh Cooking
By fredfred of burnaby (4 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, March 9, 2008 - 12:25pm [Dine in]

This outlet has a pleasant decor and feeling about it. The staff is good however I will not eat here again except for breakfast. Since the chain has adopted the "Chef -Inspired " and "Fresh Thinking-
Fresh Cooking" advertising campaigns they seem to have completely abandoned any attempt to maintain the quality of their
traditional food, Of my last two visits,on the first one I ordered the bigger burger platter and though it arrived very quickly it was
overcooked, dried out and lukewarm. A sure sign of being pre-cooked. On my last visit the burger was not overcooked, just cold
and soggy.Where is the old legendary quality?

Nice new decor but not the food
By Just_Eat of vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, June 9, 2007 - 2:34pm [Dine in]

Why did Rob Feenie align himself with this restaurant? Was it for more money? Did he actually contribute to any of the menu items? I am not a fan of White Spot and after many poor lunches & dinners I'm down to breakfasts only.
I have given them 2 chances to make a decent breakfast wrap....the cook(s) needs to take lessons from the Wrap Zone since they are only able to flop the ends together apparently with no idea that someone may in fact wish to eat the item whilst holding it in their hands. Service is consistently slow at this outlet although the servers are generally quite amicable. The turkey dinners I've had here (2) taste a tiny step above TV dinners (yes in my youth I actually ate a turkey TV dinner).

A good choice.
By Foodiebynature of Vancouver (14 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, May 17, 2009 - 9:42pm [Dine in]

White Spot restaurant is not my favorite but it’s definitely a good choice if you cannot decide where to go. Every time I’ve dined at this location it’s been great and last night was no exception.

The wait for a table on a Saturday night was reasonable. The wait staff was all friendly (my favorite waiter is Justin)! If you get a chance sit in his section, he’s great!!

The fish and chips came piping hot. The fish was very fresh and very crispy just the way I like it. I have no complaints, it was a great experience and I would definitely go back again.

Their Milkshakes bring all the boys to the yard
By Justin Reynolds of Kensington, Vancouver (3 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, December 20, 2010 - 8:13pm [Dine in]

This White Spot has been one of my family's haunts for as long as I can consciously remember being. It is in the middle price range, more or less the most typical dining experience you can get. It's not explicitly offering cheap as dirt food like McDonalds or Burger King, but it's not overly classly and exclusive like the Cannery or Tojos.

I am not what one might call a seasoned restaurateur however from what I have experienced in Vancouver I would say White Spot is a sort of non-glorified, few-frills Cactus Club, definitely without the quality of washrooms.

However, for a great place you can take your family and depend upon for consistency all across the board, this particular White Spot is great. About 5-8 years ago the restaurant underwent a major renovation that upped the ambiance from diner to diner-pub. They added a new seating style along with horse-shoe black leather seats in a special bar section. Over all though, this place has changed little.

The waiters are the same and still remember us. There's the Indian lady who is co-manager, the guy with the ponytail who is manager, as well as favourites like Justin and Nick, both of whom are gay.

Among White spots this place is great. They always top off the milkshake with an extra tin of more milkshake, the service is never more than half an hour from entrance to meal, and hey, there's a reason White Spot has become a franchise, eh?

Personally here are the most frequently ordered dishes by me and my clan:
Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Veronica Salad, Legends Burger, Bacon Burger, Milkshakes, Mountain Madness, Pirate Packs, Chicken Pot Pie (when they have it), Yam Fries, and loads more.

Still My Favorite Burger Joint
By FoodLover999 of Richmond, BC (7 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 4:08pm [Dine in]

Although White Spot has spiced up it's menu with it's faux-gourmet dishes designed by Feenie and what not, it's Burgers are still the thing to order. There is no time that I wouldn't accept a White Spot Burger if offered to me. The menu has been clouded with many dishes that do not speak for the quality of it's classic food, that is, the burger itself. The burgers are simple, yet delicious. They incorporate excellent buns, excellent patties, excellent toppings, and of course, Whit Spot's signature Triple O's sauce. Although I have been disappointed with their service in the past, it is nothing to make me stay away. My friend (who is a lacto-vegeterian) and I once went to White Spot and I must say I was disappointed with their vegetarian options. My friend ended up being forced to order a plain rice bowl with a meager topping of vegetables. Not being a vegetarian myself, this is of little concern, so I continue to return to this place with frequent regularity. If you go to White Spot, forget the Chicken Pot Pie and Pasta and Pizza, for goodness sakes order a burger!

Typical Whitespot
By Exand of Vancouver (3 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 9, 2009 - 11:52am [Dine in]

Servers are always friendly, and service is usually very brisk regardless of how busy the place is.

A good example of a Whitespot, food is a little on the pricier end but the quality is good and the ambiance / service is very good for this type of restaurant.

Perhaps the only complaint I have is the fries sometimes come out soggy more often than not compared to other Whitespots I've been to. All the other food seems to be similar to what I get at other Whitespots.
