The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2015 - January to March

It seems it has been replaced with Kawartha Dairy vanilla ice cream, which is disappointing to say the least.

Nathans Hot Dogs

According to their Twitter feed, there's no retailer carrying them at the moment. In the past, I was able to get them at Sobeys, No Frills and Foodland.

Hope they reappear in time for summer.

Marlon's Meats has a new location

The guy is a hustler wearing a butcher apron. He deserves no sympathy. He knew what he was doing.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2015 - January to March

Great deal. My dogs drool at the sight of these.

Thanks for posting!

Going to Costco tomorrow

The Snowdonia cheddar is quite good.

2014 Turducken recommendations?

Medium Rare in Etobicoke. They do a Turducken roll.

Real BBQ in Etobicoke

No problem.

Can't say that I have.

Real BBQ in Etobicoke

Sounds like quite the trek! Fortunately for me, I can walk to and from P & S in 20 minutes - give or take. Sometimes that was a bad thing.

Unlike many in thread, I never had a bad experience but I rarely ate in. Many times they were out food but I took it par for the course with it being a BBQ joint.

However, I do agree with some of the comments made within regarding certain things. Nothing that precluded me from coming back though.

I will definitely miss going there during the winter months. I found myself going more in the winter versus any other time of the year.

Plan to go tomorrow and time permitting, once more during the coming week.

If you get the chance try their soup.

P.S. Apache Burger makes pretty good onion rings. Something to keep in mind when in this neck of the woods.

Real BBQ in Etobicoke

Just read this on another forum:



Dearest Customers & Friends,

Paul & Sandy's Real Barbecue Co. will be closing its doors at this location. Our last day of operation will be Saturday Nov. 22, 2014.

Our lease is expiring and we have been unable to reach a favourable extension or renewal term with the landlord.

We would like to sincerely thank all of our customers, friends, staff, suppliers and family for the past 5 years.

You allowed us to live a dream of opening a Ma & Pa Barbecue Restaurant that served great barbecue at family friendly prices.

We were thrilled to watch a new business start from nothing and grow into a vibrant busy restaurant, that on occasion would run out of food and would have lineups out the door. Our customers' kind words about Paul& Sandy's to their family and friends, allowed us to build a successful business without advertising, for which we are most grateful.

We will keep in touch on Facebook if and when we start a new adventure.

Thank you all again,

Paul and Sandy


Fresh porcini mushrooms in Toronto?

Should be open until the end of the month.

ISO good quality whole turkey

The Healthy Butcher.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - July to September

Why don't you get them refilled instead? it appears that location offers refills.

IMO the refills are a better value.

Nathan's Hot Dogs found! No Frills at Dixon and Islington

They were on sale at that very location last week for $3.99 a package. A few weeks ago they cleared out a bunch that were due to expire for 50% off.

Holy Chuck... Priest has nothing on this place.

There's a group buy for Holy Chuck on Buytopia right now. "$10 for $20 worth of specialty burgers, fries, drinks, and more!." Worth the buy for those of you that frequent the place and for those of you who have been meaning to try HC.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - July to September

Was at the Etobicoke Costco earlier tonight. It was the least busy I could remember it being since those brutal January days of last winter. The benefit is you can casually walk the aisles without worries of bumping into people. The only drawback is you tend to spot more things to buy.

They were sampling ED Smith organic raspberry, mango and orange jam. It was very good, so I grabbed a jar but decided against it when I got to the cash register due to having an unopened jar of Bonne Maman.

They were out of pumpkin pies. I asked someone in the bakery and was told they would be restocking them tomorrow morning. Also no signs of Kirkland vanilla ice cream.

Mini Burgers

Medium Rare in Etobicoke carries a variety of sliders (beef, bison, boar and chicken) that are made in-house. They usually come frozen and I am not sure if they would deliver or not. Best to give them a call.

Where to buy Ghirardelli product

I am pretty certain that I've seen it at the Lindt outlet on the Queensway.

Iberian Ham (Jamon Iberico) in Toronto?

Here's a picture taken from the original sighting in Ottawa.

Iberian Ham (Jamon Iberico) in Toronto?

I saw this on another forum.

Loblaws (I assume selects ones) has Fermin Iberico and Serrano ham on sale for $1.99 for 100g. YMMV.

So far the only reported GTA sighting was Bayview and Hwy 7.

I've never had any before but have read enough about it that I always wanted to try it and now seems like as good a time as any.

Here's hoping one of my local Loblaws is stocking it.

BBQ tools for Father's Day

It's not quite midtown or downtown but Sobie's Barbecue should have everything you need and then some.

The Burger's Priest new location??

It did indeed.

Struggling in Etobicoke/SixPoints...Help- Takeout!!

Very excited! I've have not been to The Burger Priest as of yet. They will do exceptional well in this part of the city.

The Burger's Priest new location??

Trips to Costco will never be the same!

Maybe where Max's Market used to be?

Easter bread or paska in TO?

Natalie's Kitchen in Etobicoke will have both paska and babka available tomorrow in limited quantities. Just saw this on their Facebook page.

ISO - 5 Gallon Food safe Buckets/Pales

Tap Phong on Spadina. Picked up a 5 gallon bucket before Xmas for brining a turkey. They carry various sizes as well.

Any still looking for Pepsi Throwback?

Apparently Costco is stocking it as well. YMMV.

The Costco Thread - new products, old favourites, interesting items

Picked up a container there just before Xmas.

Steaks in the West End - Medium Rare VS Bruno's VS ...?

I'll admit, I have a bias towards Medium Rare. Connie (the owner) has treated me superbly since I started frequenting the shop. They are very accomdating and the quality is almost always excellent.

I went to Philly?

No problem.

I don't check them often either, but I happen to be purchasing a couple of Lindt vouchers and saw it, so I thought I'd post it.

I went to Philly?

There is a deal on Teambuy for this place with three different options to choose from. Unlimited buys too.

Might pick one up for myself.
