Rib Fest 2015

I used to hit up about 4 or 5 a year. I pretty much would go to all in the GTA (funny thing is I never have made it to the Etobicoke one) I used to hit Mississagua, Scarborough, Pickering, Oshawa and sometimes Vaughan and there used to be one in the beaches as well.

I feel like they've gone downhill. At first I thought it was just me, then so many people told me they felt the same. The first one I ever went to was in Mississauga, I thought I'd never miss another one again. It's not that there terrible, but not worth the line ups and driving considering that they've gone downhill. If they were as good as they were years ago, I wouldn't mind all that stuff. I think this pic is the last time I went.

just to follow up on this thread. I was in a pinch one night and just did what the guy in the video did, and they turned out great!

I do appreciate your responses, but just thought I share my experience on what the video showed.

Any Licks left in the GTA?

Even with the frozen patty, I still really liked there burger.

it's obvious though judging from this thread, I'm the minority and can see why business was slowing down.

Where can I get the best Hamburger Buns?

I believe this place supplies Johnny Burger at VP and sheppard.

I find it unbelievable that it's so hard to find a non-sesame buns in a grocery store. The only non-sesame seed buns are from dempsters and they suck.

When I was johnny burger last I tried to look at bag of buns so I could get some and I believe this was place on the label of the bag.

question about cooking chicken tenders...lol.

thank you guys for your responses. I know you can just put them in the oven, but I like them a bit crispy and don't want the hassel of deep frying them so I saw than video and it seemed interesting.

I think ill just used pam and follow the direction you guys gave me. I'm going to give it a shot this week.

hey hamster, one last question. Should I put foil down on the baking sheet?

The chicken tenders came pre-breaded. how do I mist them with oil? buy a spray bottle? I assume your talking about olive oil

question about cooking chicken tenders...lol.

Okay so I purchased a huge box of chicken tenders/fingers, and I don't want to buy a deep fryer. To much of a pain to clean up after. I know you can put them in the oven, but I saw this on youtube and was wondering if I could cook pre-breaded chicken tenders the same way? Basically the guy pan fry's them, then in the oven. I like them a little crispy and as mentioned, couldn't be bothered to deep fry them.

Here's the video (can skip to 3:55 to get the idea)

Ready made (fresh or frozen) burgers?

I recently tried cardinal roadhouse burgers. They were very good. Best I had so far. Having that said, I found out the place that supplies my both my two favorite burgers place in the city. It's called macgregors.

They don't really deal with the public, but I have a guy who hooked me up.

Woo hoo!

Source for Hot Dogs and buns used by street vendors?

this is too funny! I was just wondering the same thing this week as I want to start BBQing these at home as I live in Vaughan and don't get to enjoy street meat that much unless I head down to a blue jays game. I'm going to get these next week. Thanks for the info guys.

@franlpelyk,

I have been to Bruno's a few times, never tried their burger patties. Maybe I will try those.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Ready made (fresh or frozen) burgers?

I know what you guys are saying...but I actually like the way frozen patty's taste better than home made one PROVIDING it's the right frozen patty. For example, one of my favorite burger places in the city is called burger shack. They offer a home made patty and the regular frozen one. I think the frozen one they buy is way better. I wish I knew where they got there frozen patty's from.

thank you for the response. I'm hoping for something more uptown closer to Vaughan...but if I don't get any other recommendations, I might have try those.

Ready made (fresh or frozen) burgers?

I'm still looking for a good recommendation for this myself. I don't have a membership at Costco. I've tried a bunch from sobey's and highland farms and none seem any good. I even tried the keg ones thinking "it's the keg, everything they do is good" but nope. They break apart easy, and tooo juicy. I'm like them juicy, but not to the point when I bite into them juice is squirting out.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Anyone tried the new, less sweet Coca-Cola?

I wrote to coke telling them how gross the new coke was and what a bad idea the change was.

They wrote me back and told all other countries had the same coke accept Canada, not just the u.s.

Master Steak Restaurant in Mississauga - anyone been?

Next time I go, I would like to try the burger but it will very hard not to get a steak or steak on a Kaiser there. I saw some yummy looking steaks there. It's funny how you can go to a nice sit down restaurant, and the steak is nothing to write home about, and go to a place like master steak, and it taste way better.

I found the below pic on the net and this just the way I like my steak with some nice steak juice on juice on it

Best Jamaican Patties - GTA

I should mention that I prefer the more meaty inside as opposed the runny kind. There is a litte Caribbean joint near Canada's Wonderland who did great patty's (I used to work near there) right on Jane a few blocks north of Major Mack. Only problem was 8 times out of 10 she had no patties left, and I would be there at all different times. I wish I knew where she got those patty's.

Anyone else been to this place? I love these kind of ma and pa old school joints. Was wondering what the steak sandwich is like. I love places like this and Zet's, but they are slowing dying off.
