ABC Country Restaurant3580 No. 3 Road, Richmond
A solid breakfast and dinner choice; you cannot go wrong
Submitted Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 2:41pm [Dine in]

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.

IHOP - International House of Pancakes10551 St. Edwards Drive, Richmond
Food hasn't changed over 5 years, but the service was an all-time low

Hi DineHere users,

Just to let you know where I am coming from, I've lived in Richmond for over 25 years and I've been at this restaurant a total of 10 times over the course of 5 years. I tried to submit a review on the IHOP official site, but there was a bug with the submission form and I was unable to inform them of the poor service my girlfriend and I received last Sunday.

We came in for brunch on Sunday, September 7th at 11 AM. The front of the house was kind and seated both of us promptly. I ordered the 2x2x2 (Which is 2 eggs, 2 sausage, 2 buttermilk pancakes) and my girlfriend had a steak omelette. Our food came within a reasonable time. However, when I asked for extra whipped cream for my girlfriend's pancakes, our server said "Why not just use the butter on yours"? We didn't ask for our bill yet because we were still eating, and our server plopped down our check and walked away hastily. She was about 5 metres away when I was trying to ask her for take out containers. I don't want to name names, but my server's name started with a "M".

The food has not changed: it was barely edible and the reason I did not complain is because the quality of the food is consistent with how it was 5 years ago, with the exception of the pancakes. The buttermilk pancakes were dry and spongy, and soaked up the maple syrup like a sponge. My eggs and sausage were luke-warm and did not taste fresh. I expect a little more quality if I am paying 8.99 for a simple breakfast.

The ambiance is alright, and probably the only thing I have nothing negative to say about. The tables were clean and they changed the syrup holders so they are more spill-proof.

This place has its work cut out for them if they are going to compete with other local family restaurants like ABC Country Restaurant and Cora's, both which I would highly recommend over this place.

After giving this place multiple tries, I think I'm confident in saying I'll never come back to this location again. I know IHOPs vary by place, but as far as the Richmond one goes I'm done with it.
