Stampede Ranch: Country Music, Country Flavour
If you're into country music, like country-western bar decor, and perhaps want to learn to line-dance... oh, and you like reasonably priced, good food... then The Stampede Ranch is the place for you. I've been here about 5 or 6 times, I think, mostly because a friend of mine does a radio remote from there on Friday nights. There is a sister restaurant in Kitchener, The Stampede Corral, but I've never been there.
If you arrive early, you'll likely meet some of the older residents of the area who go for a cheap meal. Tues nights there are $0.39 wings, there are different food specials on other nights of the week.
It does get noisy... but isn't that all part of the atmosphere of a place? - Where people are having fun?
The food seems to be a mixture of tex-mex, austrian/german, burgers, sandwiches... real eclectic mix!
Favorite Dish: I've had a great steak - great for the price, its not the world's greatest cuts, but it certainly is good for what you are paying. I've loved the schnitzel, and the burgers. Last night I was there for a radio promotion - to win tickets for a concert by Keith Urban - and had the burger, and they also had trays of appetisers. Unfortunately, except for the carrots and celery sticks, there was an awful lot of fried stuff. Great perogies though.
Bombay Cafe: Indian Food
My human companions really enjoy this quaint little restaurant. They've been going for years. They usually get the dinner for 2 and sometimes splurge on the upgraded dinner for 2. The food is excellent. The owner is a very pleasant and genteel host. Small restaurant, seats about 30 people. Not posh, but it has a comfortable and charming atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: The dinner for two.
Red Papaya - Cherry Blossom now: Thai-Vietnamese Cuisine
They changed their name to Cherry Blossom
Visited this place 5 years ago and loved the meal...
This time (Aug 2009) the food was ok, but definitely not as good as before.
The servers are a little slow, the wait staff show very little interest in their job...
Favorite Dish: Green Curry, Cashew Nuts with chicken, Pho and Vermicelli bowl with pork

Wong's Garden: Great Chinese downtown Guelph
Very good food at great prices. Freshly cooked. This is a place that I go regularly for lunch and dinner. Lunch plates for under $5! Large restaurant which is usually very quiet. This is really a take out Chinese, but don't let the fact that the place is rather empty put you off. It has an excellent menu and great service. The guy who runs it; George is always there. He must never sleep. Very highly recommended place. I go there several times per week.
Favorite Dish: Kung bo shrimp. Very tasty sauce. This is one of my favourites. Excellent spring rolls too as an appetizer. Dim Sum soup is good. I've never been disapointed.

Carden St Cafe: You have to try this!
You feel like you've entered a tropical paradise when you go in. They have painted the walls with all sorts of palm trees, birds and other cool animals.
The menu is a combination of Thai cooking and curry. It's delicious!
Make reservations - it's very popular...and also closed on Mondays
Favorite Dish: Chicken satay - great skewers of grilled chicken with peanut sauce over rice. Yummy!
Latino's: Good Latin Food
Latino's is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have been to in my life. It's small exterior is extremely deceiving, as it is a rather large restaurant. Regardless, it is always packed. Later on in my meal, people were being turned away at the door because they couldn't take any more clients!
The restaurant has won awards from the Eat Smart campaign. The food is healthy and delicious, and the restaurant has seemed to perfected portion size.
Favorite Dish: Although I enjoyed my main dish, I especially enjoyed my appetizer. I got the chips with salsa and guacamole. Their guacamole was AMAZING! For $7, it was well worth the price and was a good starter.
