If you're like me, you're always on the lookout for a restaurant with great lunch specials. Whether you're on a break from the office or job site, or whether you're just on the go, finding just the right lunch can make your day!
I've long been a patron of the obvious franchise restaurants like coffee shops and sub restaurants, because you can get a nutritious lunch at these places without spending a fortune. But recently I've discovered a place that tops my list of all-time favourite restaurants: My fun and friendly local bar and grill.
Neighbourhood bar and grills are an up-and-coming chain of restaurants that are 100% proudly Canadian-owned and operated. This type of franchise has many Ontario locations, and are rapidly expanding into other provinces. They combine an unpretentious, casual atmosphere with affordable prices – and amazing food!
These proudly Canadian bar and grills are perhaps best known for their chicken wings, and if you're looking for a great lunch, you can't beat a pound of signature wings.
You won't believe the variety of wings that they have on offer – everything from Dry Spice "Salt-and-Pepper” wings to Very Saucy "Hotter Than Hell” wings. The wings menu is coded to show which options are spicy and which are milder, and both Original and Boneless wings are available. There are twenty different flavours of wings at my neighbourhood bar and grill, and I've sampled every single one! Full orders of wings come with signature fries and the franchise's Famous Garlic Dill Sauce.
If you're craving one of this bar and grill's other tempting entrees, but don't want to miss out on their chicken wings,
don't worry about having to choose. For only a small price, you can add a half-pound of wings to any order.
In addition to the unrivaled selection of wings, this Bar and Grill offers a wide variety of entrees including a 100% Angus Beef Burger topped with bacon and cheese. The burger is a particular favourite of mine; it's far superior to burgers from any of the other usual chains.
There's always a lunch deal on the Daily Soup, Salad, and a Half Sandwich. Soups range from Vegetable to Chicken Noodle to Chili Con Carne, and the bar and grills delicious sandwiches include their Triple-Decker Clubhouse or the Buffalo Wings Wrap. Choose a variety for an inexpensive and nutritious lunch.
Another popular choice is the Pulled Pork Sandwich Special. Juicy pulled pork on a Ciabatta bun is topped with Signature Barbecue Sauce and served with Crispy Onions and golden fries.
If you're in the mood for something lighter, two feature salads may hit the spot: Classic Caesar is a perfect blend of crisp Romaine and creamy dressing topped with parmesan and croutons. The Algonquin Salad is a unique taste treat, featuring Romaine and spring mix lettuces with cranberries, trail mix, and spicy glazed pecans tossed with Chardonnay vinaigrette dressing and topped with fresh goat cheese and noodles.
Other options include a Crispy Haddock and Slaw Burger, or an old-fashioned Roast Beef and Yorkshire P
As you can tell, no matter what you want for lunch, this fun and friendly, 100% proudly Canadian bar and grill has something delicious to offer!
