Great good, Great atmosphere and exceptional service. It even has a designated smoking romm and is also great for the family. My kids loved it because of the arcade games and pool tables to keep them busy.
My wife and I eat there at least 3-4 times a month. The cooking staff are, in our opinion (my wife is a chef), quite skilled. The staff are very friendly and efficient (always, actually!). We also love the 1/2 priced appetizers every weekday (4-5 pm and 10-11 pm). Our favourite appetizers are the jalapeno poopers, chicken quesadias, and my favourite, the tacos with spicy beef. All of these substantial appetizers during the special time are around 4-5 dollars (as of July, 2009). As for an occasional drinker being tipsy, we've never had a problem with anyone.
Worse waiting time I ever had. Enter in at 720 PM, serve at 735 and finally the drinks came at 755 PM. the server was running very good but one server for the entire resturant is costing cutting to the extreme. Finally left at 810 PM and had to look for a server to paid for my drink.
I love this place. My family loves this place. Food is great and so are the people. No independant rest. can compare to this one, they just completed the instal of some massive plasma t.v's and some reno's.
This place is the bomb
I pass through Scarborough only frequently. One evening I stopped at Route 66 at Eglinton Square for a beer and a meal. Nigel served me and he was most welcoming and accomodating. About three weeks later I returned. Nigel was there again and remembered my name and drink order. Route 66 is now my Scarborough Bar and Grill of choice.
This restaurant has gone way down hill over the years.
It may be a good watering hole for the drunks, but poor service coupled with lower food quality discourages me from ever returning to this place.
best wings ever. friendly service
This place has to be the best bar in scarborough simply due to sheer value and service. the servers are pleasant and really pay attention to their customers. The half price appetizers are a great catch and the wings are truely the best in town.
I have to say, I have a completely different perception of this bar after having visited there myself. The location is far from ideal in terms of a surrounding night life (located at the back of a quiet mall in a residential area) but being close to home, a large group of friends and I visited the bar. Having been there before, I knew it was quiet, a little grimey but overall, a cheap, convenient place to drink or to grab a bite. Having brought a large group of people (all of which were either drinking or eating- or a combination of both) I expected the staff and the manager to be more than happy to cater to our needs. The waitresses were rude, seemed highly irritated that they could be bothered by many people ordering diffent things, on seperate bills. In fact, I had to ask one waitress three times to bring me the same drink in a period of approximately 45 minutes before she "got around" to it (though I could not count more than 20 people in the bar, besides our group). The manager walked up at one point, acting as if he knew us, and even hugged some of the girls in the party- though not one of us had any idea who he was or how he knew us personally. Instead, he intruded on our conversations and was only later identified as the manager of the bar. I also noticed another party of young girls who I could swear were no older than 17- they were being served and I would not doubt that were not asked for ID. Around 1am, the waitresses were becoming just plain belligerent. Though not many people were left, they literally told us "We're closing- can you pay your tab now and leave" - which took us off guard as last call ANYWHERE in Toronto is 2am. Although our group was understandably intoxicated, one would think the employees would be more than ready to maturely handle situations with customers who drink, my experience was that we were viewed as a complete incovenience, though we had done very little but speak loudly. The manager also became intimidating and outright offensive at one point when he accused someone of leaving without paying their tab. He was wrong and completely unprofessional. I will never visit this establishment again. The staff was rude, the cutlery were dirty and the place was just plain questionable. .
Absolutely terrible restaurant. Filthy washrooms, wait-staff that doesn't care (didn't smile once during entire visit), mediocre food... What kind of restaurant doesn't let you take your leftovers home just because you use a coupon?! Other patrons were very loud & obnoxious as well.
When I ordered the "Asian Pasta" the waitress was confused and said, "The Mandarin Pasta?" The name of the dish in the menu is "Mandarin Asian Pasta". I had to point to it in the menu to confirm we were talking about the same thing. In the menu, it's offered with 2 different sauces after the confusion (after waiting with closed menus for over 5 minutes) I forgot to specify that I wanted the sweet chili sauce and it wasn't until the dish was delivered that I realized the waitress did not even ask me which one I wanted and it came with Teriyaki. Poor service all round.
I visited this restaurant for the first time last week and was pleasantly surprised to receive such great service and great value and large food portions. I go to many restaurants and can honestly say that there are not many places left that offer good food, a comfortable environment and service. Looking forward to dining there again...
How things have changed since 2005! NO arcade, etc. Bathroom is disgusting - even after a reno.
Service is awful. Had to ask for water. Had to ask for refills. The person that ask for refills of water was given water no one else. Place was empty. Should of been a good clue to walk out. Within hours of going there became sick and was throwing up. It's safe to say we won't be back!
The atmosphere is relaxed, the food is good and the portions are large. I've been there several times alone and with friends, and we all like the food.
This place is discusting. Mice everywhere. Saw three in 10mins. The mens room was trashed, foul stench of urine because the urinals where overflowing. No hand soap or paper towels. Saw the cook leave without washing up either, i followed him out, he went straight to the kitchen and started cutting up chicken wings! This place should be closed down.
I have visited this restaurant several times, and enjoy their chicken wings and nachos. The food portions are large and are prices are cheap. The service is good, and they seem eager to please.
I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys good bar and grill food
My wife and I got food poisoning from this place after eating wings and nochos. The place is filthy.
what are nochos?
Poor service, waiter was drunk and food tasted burnt
