No kidding. It's like people that enter threads about TV shows and talk about how they don't have a TV/cable/eyeballs. If you want to talk about spending hours cooking or going to Famous Daves... START A NEW THREAD.

As for Swiss Chalet. I hope the additional locations show up sooner. Kenaston Commons makes it a PITA for me to get to just for the odd meal.


That's what you get for moving into the shithole area of town. Oh Well, at least you didn't move into the GC area!

I grew up in the Maples. I knew better than to go back.

Speaking totally off topic, Loveys BBQ in St.B I found to be better than Famous Dave's. Give that a try GC if you've never been. ...and if you don't like it, it may be an adequate substitute until a Dave's opens up here. Very Happy

Back to Swiss Chalet, that's my wife's favorite restaurant and she's from Ontario, so she grew up on this stuff. I've been here most of my life and only remember this chain in passing...and the frequent out of market commercials lol

Your wife is a very astute observer of good eat's. We must convene a sandbox meeting at the grand opening.

My mouth salivates now as we speak, nay dream, of a nice quarter white with french fries and bun.

Really?

I find everything they make is overcooked (i.e. dry) and their sauces are also thin and kinda bland.

I welcome anything new coming into the city.

I'll definitely give SC another try. Last time I had it was as a kid in Edmonton. I hope they also bring their partner in crime Harvey's as well. Going to the airport for burgers is kind of inconvenient. ( also not as good as legit Harvey's locations. )

Does anyone know why they left?
Losing money?, because of poor food and/or poor service?

They disappeared because there was a falling out with the family/friends that owned the rights to the Swiss Chalet/Harveys franchises in Manitoba.

As a result the new owners had to work to resolve all of those issues before they could take over ownership of the franchise rights.

When I worked in Toronto, our Quebecker contingent insisted on having Swiss Chalet for lunch every Friday. They would run around, excitedly, and try to convince people that Swiss Chalet was THE most magical food experience, and then want to take our money away and replace it with meh take out food from the Swiss Chalet down the block. I don't remember ever once being awed by it, but, it IS a welcome take out/delivery change from damn Chinese/pizza all the time. I would order it if it were deliverable, simply because it wouldn't be pizza again.

Actually, I'd say that around these parts the Santa Lucia Pizza "Montenegro" is THE most magical food experience. Foodgasm.

I order most of my pie from Santa Lucia. I've never even heard of "Montenegro" blasphemer. I believe you are making this up. To deflect from thine blasphemous meh statement above.

Take it back!

You know, coming from someone who doesn't like Rush, I'm not surprised at your complete lack of any appreciation for good food. Did you not learn when we took you to Mitzi's girl? lol!
